My 3 year old got the flu shot 3 days ago, last night she ate mcdonald's chicken nuggets doesn't usually eat that. Diarhea & vomiting all night?
Probably nuggets but: Most likely this was due to the nuggets, which i would never eat or feed to my child (see http://foodmatters.Tv/articles-1/whats-really-in-chicken-mcnuggets-scary) but she could have a GI virus.

No.: Influenza does not cause vomiting or diarrhea, so it is not flu. It likely started with a viral infection of some sort, though. Sometimes, the virus can suppress your immune system causing either a long recovery period or allowing a second infection, either bacterial or viral to start also.

I recently recovered from the flu. I am so hungry but I have no appetite. I feel like if i eat something, i'm going to vomit. Is this from flu?
It may be: But something may be going on at the same time. Never make assumptions when facts can become available. See your doctor and get this worked out. Infections of any kind can suppress appetite, because chemical mediators released from inflammatory cells suppress appetite. They do not usually, however, produce nausea. Get checked. ...Read more
