Stomach Flu With Diarrhea
Heartburn after having stomach flu, no vomiting only diarrhea, fever and aches. Tums (calcium carbonate) and organic vinager don't help. What would help the heartburn?
Try an H2 blocker: Some people develop heartburn after a stomach flu even without vomiting, because the stomach flu may have caused gastroesophageal reflux, and irritation to the esophagus. I suggest try famotidine 20mg twice a day or ranitidine 150mg twice a day, both are over the counter. In addition, avoid alcohol, caffeine, cigarettes, large meals, and fatty meals. Also, Gaviscon tabs are a wonderful antacid.See 1 more doctor answer

Hey, I think I might have appendicitis because I have the following symptoms; pain in lower right abdomen, diarrhea, and fever. Or is it stomach flu?
If worried, see doc: The classic symptoms of appendicitis are abdominal pain localizing to the right lower quadrant (rlq) of the abdomen, some nausea and vomiting, and lack of appetite. On exam, there is rlq tenderness. If the appendix has ruptured, pain and tenderness may be throughout the abdomen. Labs generally show elevated white blood count. Abdominal ultrasound or ct scan are increasingly used for dx.See 2 more doctor answers

Had stomach flu for 5 days. Day 1 vomiting and diarrhea and bad stomach pain. Day 2 diarrhea and abdominal pain. Still have abdominal pain and gas.
Gastroenteritis: A viral gastroenteritis is likely. Treatment consists of resting, drinking adequate amounts of room temperature fluids including flat ginger ale to settle nausea, light diet of broths and saltine crackers, no roughage, kaopectate to control diarrhea and Tylenol to relieve aches and pains. Symptoms should gradually improve over a few days. See your MD if abdominal pain persists or symptoms worsen.

I have been having diarreah for two days now (with fever at night). I believe it is a stomach flu. Is there anything I can do?
Diarrhea: If you haven't been backpacking, drank contaminated water, been to mexico or overseas, the most common would be the stomach flu. Plenty of clear liquids (alcohol not included), b.R.A.T. Diet (bananas, rice, apples, toast) are the first line of care. Avoid fat and protein. If it lasts 2 days, you start vomiting, or it's getting worse despite the above, you may need an iv.
My 10 month old baby has stomach flu how long or days should the diahrrea last and all the sympthoms? She's in playful but don't eat 2 too much formula
Stomach "flu": (viral) usually last 24-48 hours. Keep baby hydrated with sips of pedialyte/formula/ watered down juice. Since she's playful, symptoms should rapidly subside. Bacterial gastroenteritis' symptoms may be more severe & last longer so that medical intervention may be needed to prevent dehydration. Braty diet (banana, rice, applesauce, toast, yogurt) may help, too.
Pill with stomachflu: I would always ask your ob-gyn or pharmacist also, but as long as you are able to keep the medicine down and not vomit it up (for at least an hour), an oral medicine should be absorbed ok.See 1 more doctor answer
Had the stomach flu" for 4 days (vomiting /diarehea are gone) but still feel so incredibly weak & just not right - how long does this typically last?
Depends: Everyone is different, and react to illnessess differently too. The norovirus is more virulent, and may cause you to be feeling week for 3-7 days. If you are generally healthy, keep your fluids and electrolytes up, slowly get back to a normal diet, and you should start feeling better in the next day or two. If not beter after 7 days, see your dr. For an evaluation to be safe. Good luck.

Hi my 12 year old has the stomach flu for a week now and is okay but still has diarrhoea and she still has stomach pain and can't eat any solutions?
Beware of dehydratio: Initially, the most important thing is to avoid dehydration. Watch for urine production, presence of tears and moisture of the mouth, as well as signs of decreased activity or lethargy. Administer oral rehydration fluids, then progress to bland diet If no improvement, seek medical attention.
I breastfeed my 9 month old and I have severe diarreha and nausea, what can I take to get rid of this stomach flu?
Ideally - nothing: Usually acute gastroenteritis presenting as diarrhea and nausea is of viral etiology and resolves by itself over 48-72 hrs. Antibiotics do not help- you should however maintain hydration, especially as you are breast feeding- you can eat bananas, soft rice- these are binding. Yogurt is also good- avoid fruit juices in diarrhea as the high sugar content can make the diarrhea worse.
I'm having waves of stomach cramping. Is this stomach flu? It's been like this for a few days. No vomiting or diarreah.
No: If there is no vomiting or diarrhea I would not consider it to be the stomach flu. However, it does seem that your stomach is upset about something, whether it be excess acid or some kind of bug that's just not making you throw up or have diarrhea. If it continues a few more days I would recommend you get the advice and exam from your doctor. Best wishes.
My 3yr old and I both have had diarhea, cramping and flatulence for almost a week now. Is this a stomach flu? Will it go away on its own?
Diarrhea: You can get rid of the diarrhea faster if you stay off of greasy and fried food. Cut out milk and dairy products as well as cutting out juice.
My wife and kids have been throwing up and have diarreha off and on for the past 24-36 hours. Thinking they have some sort of stomach flu/ virus. Is there anything they can take or do? And, what can I take to ensure I don't get it? Thanks.
Sounds like it: You're likely correct. For a stomach virus, it's important to maintain hydration (water, sports drinks) and eat a very bland diet as tolerated. Look up the "BRAT" diet. Certainly avoid dairy. As long as there's no fever, it's ok to use loperamide (Imodium) to suppress symptoms. Wash hands frequently and don't share food/glasses etc. See a doc if dehydration or 3 days without improvement.
Had gastro stomach flu since Monday. Past 2 days I've had very frequent diarrheal bowel movements with nothing but liquid. What to do? Anti diarrheal?
It would be OK: To try Immodium as directed on the package. If you notice blood in your stool, or start vomiting uncontrollably, call your doctor. Hope this helps!
