I have had what seems like the stomach bug for 10 hours now. I am weak, i have diarrhea, stomach pain/cramps, bad backpain. Is it the stomach bug?

Go to the ER

Gastroenteritis
If you are having persistant diarrhea, you may be dehydrating. In the ER they can give you fluids via an IV if needed and do tests to see what is causing the problem.

my 2 year old has stomach pain, a little vomiting which has subsided, diarrhea and gurgling stomach sounds..how wld i knw if its stomach bug or worms?

Stool testing

Stomach_pain
If the problems resolve within a few days, they may be due to a stomach 'bug", or viral illness. Should the complaints persist, then have your doctor order a stool test to look for parasites. Factors that contribute to the decision to evaluate for worms include, where you live, recent travel, and pets in the home.

I had the flu, or some sort of stomach bug about two days ago. I am still having severe stomach pain, is this normal or should i be concerned?

Maybe

Stomach_flu
The norovirus canlast longer than the general "stomach bug' we are used to (24-48 hour). As far as the word severe, that may be troublesome. If you are having "severe' pains in your stomach, than see a Dr. quickly for an immediate evalutaion.

Dr. Robert Rahimi answered:

Stomach pain 2 inches below right rib cage and 2 inches to the right of my belly button. I also have bloating and gas. There are two hard lumps underneath the skin which are painful.

Gallbladder or ulcer

Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease) especially if you are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS like Motrin or Ibuprofen). You should contact your PCP to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound. If you have fever/severe pain, go to ER.

Dr. Steven Charlap answered:

I've been having mild stomach discomfort for 4 days now. No vomiting or diarrhea, can eat, so just a persistent stomach bug? Or acid?

Many causes

Vomiting
If it persists another few days, you should see a doctor. It could be something simple like a virus or stress or more complicated as there are many organs like liver, pancreas, spleen, etc, in the area. If you are still going to the bathroom regularly and appetite is good, then you can probably wait a few more days to see a doctor.
