I think I have the stomach flu. Sunday I was vomiting all day was also dizzy and unsteady walking. I feel much better today, but still a little shaky.
You May be Right!: "I may be crazy...HEY! But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for..." If you had predominantly GI issues but if that's all improved, I would be willing to accept gastric virus as a probable cause. Drink TONS of fluid. Remember the rule....drink (in ounces) half the number of your weight (in pounds) on a daily basis. If sick...add 20% to that baseline. ...Read more
I've been having dizziness from dehydration & stomach flu, doctor gave me 1000ml of fluids & I've been drinking water how long till dizines goes away?
Another day, maybe: Usually young people such as yourself bounce back quite quickly from viral gastroenteritis. I presume you had IV fluids if you measured it in 1000 ml/1 liter. And you've been drinking water. Keep it up, take it easy until you feel better/less dizzy. Should not be more than 48 hours more. See doc again if longer. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Gastroenteritis: It may not be the "flu" per se, but it sounds like you have a GI bug. Usually this is from a virus. For most people, the biggest risk is dehydration.

I've the flu & am quite dizzy & nauseous. It seems worse after a cough. Does the act of coughing bother the stomach somehow?
It does in you: One of the hallmarks of viral infections, as opposed to bacterial infections, is they frequently hit multiple organ systems at once. Not just your head but also your throat and your bowels and your arms and legs, etc. The good thing is that they are self-limited, lasting just a week or two. We suggest symptomatic relief-Tylenol, Motrin, fluids, bed rest and you'll get better soon. ...Read more
Why are my monthly periods way worse @ times. There are times when I get my (mouthly)& my stomach hurts and I feel dizzy and gross, I feel flu like?
Menstral cycle: It is not uncommon to have heavier periods on occasion. There is some variability with the depth of sloughing of the lining of the uterus. It depends on the hormonal levels and variability. Some cycles the whole uterine lining will slough and this accounts for the heavier periods. The levels of hormones and substances released from the cells will cause the cramping to be variable as well. ...Read more
