I had the 2 way flu. I lost 5 pounds in 13 hours.  Now three days later I have terrible bloating,  and stomach cramps.  How long will this last?

When to get checked: Vomiting and now bloating means you need to get evaluated. Dehydration with this length of illness and vomiting can be easily treated with IV fluids. Left unattended, this can get serious. Good idea to go to ER, minor ER or your doc, and take a friend for support. Be well. ...Read more

Been feeling sick for 4 days now. Had some mild stomach cramps, flu like symptoms. Today for the the first time I had pale clay like stool.

Pale Stool.: Pale stool suggests bile is not being delivered to small intestine. May be seen with variety of issues. But with other symptoms I am concerned about hepatitis. If this persists, you develop right upper quadrant abdominal pain or your contacts develop similar symptoms see your doc right away. If this does not occur again I would not worry. Until then avoid acetaminopen and alcohol. ...Read more

Likely benign: Sounds like a virus, if the pains are severe or the abdominal area is severely tender then go to the hospital. If getting worse then get seen but otherwise okay to watch it. Read up on the signs and symptoms of gallstones and pancreatitis, unlikely but good to review. ...Read more

Bad cramps after i eat. Had the stomach flu 4 days ago. Im a guy. Whats wrong?

Residual effect: Most commonly, when someone has a gastroenteritis ("stomach flu"), the intestines temporarily lose the components that help break down lactase, so it is common to get cramps, etc with dairy foods. May take several days up to few weeks to resolve- the body need to rebuild this function. Take it easy, avoid dairy, consider lactase supplements. If not better or worsens, see doc. ...Read more

Abdominal bloating,: May be unusual intestinal virus or could be food poisoning with camphylobacter as that has a waxing and waning presentation( usually diarrhea as well) . Do you have diarrhea?

Hard to tell yet: A doctor can check to see if there is a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of their mucus discharge, their periods, or a missed period on occasion. Some women feel normal after a few days, but others have bothersome symptoms and follow-up with their doctors. If needed, a pregnancy test is accurate if done correctly after a missed period. ...Read more
