Stomach Flu Pain Behind Knees
I have had the stomach flu twice in two weeks (no vomiting though), both with severe joint pains and pain behind my kidney. What should I do?
Urine infection: You should consider urinary tract infection as a possibility (pyelonephritis). Urinalysis could be very useful.
Woke up with neck pain and stiffness, lasting two weeks, then right leg knee pain/thigh, low grade fever and lower abdomen discomfort distention??
Many infections: Would be worried about infection virus is especially. Need to discuss this with your physician.
GI Flu: Start with clear liquid like water, soda that is clear, or sports hydration drinks. Sip, sip, sip. Work up to solids with bland foods like bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, gelatin, or chicken. Avoid alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, dairy ; high fat foods. Rest. If you are having frequent, chronic symptoms - it may not be due to viral infections. If this is the case, med eval would be prudent.See 1 more doctor answer
Nausea and Vomiting: The most important part of dealing with nausea and vomiting is avoiding dehydration. Nausea can be treated with prescription meds such as Phenergan (promethazine) or zofran. Ginger tablets can be tried as a natural remedy for nausea. High sugar drinks can make diarrhea worse. Lower sugar drinks are more quickly absorbed by body and safer.See 1 more doctor answer
