NOT prego! Does gastroenteritis come and go? Last 2 nights up with diarrhea, then stops &nausea all day! Thoughts? I'm confused!! But just feel sick?!

I have had the stomach flu since Sunday and always feeling nasues, 3days in now I have water diarrhea non stop? Is this the end of the virus??

Continue to drink a variety of clear liquids (sports drinks are a good choice.) If you're hungry, stick with bland, non-dairy foods (yogurt okay).

If he is able to drink fluids (don't worry about solid foods at this time), then keep giving him liquids. Also take note of his urine output - if he is not urinating and looks dry, unable to take fluids, then take him to the nearest er for IV fluid. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
