I've had some kind of stomach virus for four days now. Everything I eat goes straight through me. I have a fever and some nausea.

See your physician

Most intestinal illness due to an infectious agent is self-limited. Viral infections such as the norovirus, which is most common and accounts for 90% of such illness due to virus, usually resolve within 3-4 days of onset of symptoms. If you are not improving other causes must be entertained and this requires a doctor to get a careful history and perform an exam. Until then drink plenty of fluids

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...

Open-uri20130125-15046-10w2bmq
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

I had appendicitis 2 weeks ago & now I have stomach virus. Constant water diarrhea, what should I do to stop it? Imodium?

Is there any chance you were put on antibiotics post surgery? You almost certainly had antibiotics at time of operation and your history is worrisome for C difficile diarrhea a cause of severe loose stools as you describe. Regardless, you simply must be seen and diagnosed for your own safety and health. Please do not delay.

Feeling achy, slight nausea, diarrhea 3 times in 2 days, low fever for one day, now constipation. Is this a stomach virus?

Could be

Virus
but that would be self limiting. I have seen patients with symptoms like that going on for years. It is nearly always due to lousy diet, particularly sugar and sweeteners. I keep answering like this because the present Standard American Diet spell sad! Professor John Yudkin wrote a book in 1973 called "Sweet and Dangerous" and is well worth getting out of the library. It is a blockbuster!

My mom just got the stomach virus and I am now freaking out that I will get it too. What is passed from one person to another?

To avoid getting it:

Stomach_flu
Wash your hands well for at least 20 seconds OFTEN. Don’t touch your nose, eyes or mouth without clean hands. Don’t share the same cups, forks or spoons. Use disinfectants on solid surfaces. Bring sanitizer with you when you are out. Try to avoid contact with people who are sick.

Do you have to have diarrhea and vomiting to have a stomach virus? Get cold chills, very nauseous, tired, and constipated now.

No

Loose_stools
Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.
