Vomiting: Cannot tell from what you have told us. As long as this has stopped and corrected itself would not do anything else. There are many potential causes for single episodes of vomiting. If it recurs you might then consider getting to a doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Gastroenteritis: Not sure what you have, because if it is entirely in your GI system and viral it is unusual to have a fever. Would need more info on other symptoms. Your weight loss is likely to be due to dehydration. If you cannot re-hydrate yourself fairly rapidly an ER visit might not be a bad idea. If you can keep fluids down, call and make an appt with your PCP. Hope you get better soon. ...Read more

What can be done for 2yr old that has a stomach virus? He's keeping fluids down now but he is still running a fever

What can be done for 2yr old that has a stomach virus? He's keeping fluids down now but he is still running a fever

Keeping fluids in...: Keeping fluids in a toddler is very important, especially if he has had a spell of losing fluids through vomiting or diarrhea. So if you're succeeding at that, you're probably doing ok. I always assess toddlers by looking at how they are acting - in most cases, i think this is more critical than their temp. If a child is sluggish or lethargic - or agitated while ill, he needs to be seen. Lg. ...Read more

Fever definition: A fever is not an elevation of temperature. Although there is some variation 100.3 to 100.6 seems to be the definition of fever. It does not depend on your "normal" temperature. Although you can treat elevations of temperature and fever with the available anti-fever medications. The most important thing is to determine 1) the cause of the temperature elevation and 2) the response to meds. ...Read more

You're dehydrated: A nasty virus like what you have can dehydrate you pretty quickly -so it's important to take in fluids and 'chicken soup' until you feel better. The presence of fever means your body is still fighting. Doctors can help with IV fluids/electrolytes--a fast way to restore fluid and salt losses. The advantage to an ER/urgent care trip is they can tell exactly what needs correcting (i.e. potassium). ...Read more

My gf has very sharp stomach pains all around her stomach Had no fever or chills didnt feel sick at all besides stomach then threw up. Stomach virus??

Possibly: Without the ability to know a patients medial history, nor the ability to ask specific questions and examine the patient it's not possible to give specific meaningful advice. Abdominal pain followed by vomiting, in a patient who was not having prior abdominal problems is often do to gastroenteritis. You can read about that here:.. bit.ly/1vxEW0V If you are still sick see a physician ...Read more

Stomach virus heart rate at 100. Feel warm and weak no fever. Dr says EKG is fine and heart rate is just from body feigning virus?Is hr like this ok?

Yes: Heart rates vary under different circumstances, going slower when one is calm or sleeping, and faster under stress, anemia, fever, or when one is fighting an infection. These are normal bodily responses, and as long as EKG only shows fast heart rate there is nothing to be concerned about. The heart is not the issue- just responding. The underlying cause needs to be addressed. ...Read more
