Just getting over the stomach virus and now I'm constipated with lots of gas pain. What should I do?
Gastroenteritis: If you had a lot of diarrhea it is not unusual to go without bowel movements for a few days after. If you are uncomfortable with intestinal gas collection,in addition to avoiding gassy foods, drinking hot water and applying a hot water bottle to the abdomen helps break down the gas and moves it down for passing. Taking simethicone after meals prevents gas build-up. Senokot (senna) helps constipation. ...Read more
Can activated charcoal/ ultracarbon absorb toxins and gas produced by virus that cause food poisoning, diarrhoea and stomach spasms?
Can trapped gas cause a GREAT deal of stomach discomfort? It came on suddenly. Not the typical pain associated with stomach virus.
Sure can!: I had gas pain that was worse than my later appendicitis. Gas-X (simethicone) helps a lot. But bad pain needs to be evaluated if it does not go away quickly with simethicone or an antacid. Splenda and sorbitol candies and drinks, also gave me pain worse than labor pain! Never again! ...Read more

I'm vegan & healthy, yet having GI problems for a week now. I have dull pain/fullness in stomach after eat, excess gas & burping. Could it be a virus?
Most likely not:
Possible due to increased acid secretion in the stomach. Viral gastroenteritis would also cause diarrhea or abdomen cramping pain.
If otc medication such as maalox, mintox and Prilosec otc did not help after few days - 1 week, please see your physician.
There is a bacteria called h. Pylori which can cause inflammation of the stomach and small intestine. Not treated, it could also cause cancer. ...Read more

There are other possibilities that only a visit to a doctor can help figure out and diagnose. If you are not already doing it, try over the counter medications for acid, such as zantac, (ranitidine) pepcid, and Prilosec for a couple of weeks then visit a doctor. ...Read more
My eight year old daughter has been having stomach pain for one month. Today she threw up. She's had gas, bloating, nasia and acid reflux. Can virus last this long? Any way to cure virus?
Unlikely virus: One month of abdominal symptoms is a little longer than one would expect from a virus alone. Abdominal discomfort can be from a lot of causes like constipation, stomach infection with H. Pylori, acid reflux, irritable bowel, celiac disease, or IBD. Try her on a natural organic diet rich in fiber and fluids. Also try probiotics. If not helping in a few days, see a specialist. ...Read more
