The Flu Vomit Color
Maybe not the flu?: Here's a helpful link from the CDC regarding classic flu symptoms and severity: http://www. Cdc. Gov/flu/about/disease/symptoms. Htm
Vomiting is violent.: Vomiting can cause muscle strain in the jaw, neck, throat, abdomen, chest, low back and groin. This can tale up to 6 weeks to resolve once the vomiting is over. Meanwhile if anything is worse than vomitting... it is vomitting with a muscle strain. Phenergan (promethazine) with codeine syrup can be useful for a few days to get you through the flu... Once the vomitting stops stretching or PT may be needed.
Rarely happens: A person may rarely vomit after a flu shot because: he was going to vomit anyway for an unrelated reason (nothing to do with the shot), he is scared of needles (people sometimes faint after a shot), he is having a rare allergic reaction to the shot (he may have other symptoms such as a hives rash). People can go get vaccinations without worrying about vomiting, because such vomiting is so rare.
Certainly!: "Flu" is a term misused in many ways but the classic way we as providers qualify flu is when there is a viral infection caused by the influenza viruses that leads to fever, sores throat, cough, body aches, muscle aches, headache, and general malaise. When someone uses the term "stomach flu", it may not be caused by the influenza virus alone. Some of those infections are caused by other viruses.
Many causes: Vomiting is a common symptom in children when they are sick. Some viruses (typically called stomach viruses), can cause symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Sometimes vomiting occurs after coughing fits or after swallowing mucous. Vomiting is not usually concerning, as long as the child remains well hydrated, is acting normally and the vomiting is not bloody or bile-colored (green).See 1 more doctor answer

Today I had flu injection now vomiting anything I should watch for? Maybe related not unwell before the injection just had end of a cough
No Worries: No more concerning than any episode of vomiting. Very rare but form of weakness progressing to paralysis and allergic type reactions are the major flu vax side effects. Vomiting is not related. I guess flu season is different down under as we are a long ways from vaccine season. I spent two of the best months of my life in Sydney on a cardiology rotation. Wonderful country. Hope this helps!
13mo boy vomited for two days. Flu? Then symptom free for 36 hours. Has started vomiting again in large amounts. Is it normal for flu to come back?
Unusual: It is unusual to be completely symptom free for over a day and then have symptoms come back as bad, or worse than they were before. I would recommend having your son checked out by his doctor to see if there is something other than the stomach flu causing his symptoms.See 1 more doctor answer
14mo boy: flu-like vomiting for 48 hrs. Then proceeds to projctl vomit 1-3x/day for 11 days. No other symptoms. Ped shrugs it off. Get second opinion?
That is often a sx.: Gastroenteritis symptoms may include: diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps/pain, headaches, muscular aches & pains as well as fever (low grade). Bloody stools are not usually associated with gastroenteritis. According to the CDC, viral gastroenteritis usually has a duration of 1 to 10 days (depending on the specific virus). The average is 1 to 3 days.
I have been vomiting on and off for 5 days straight and been having pains in my right side that feels like stabbing pains. I know its not the flu?
Possibilities: There are a number of conditions that can cause such symptoms including gallstones, kidney stones, kidney infection. See your doctor now for evaluation.
Ever since my son has started nursery, he is vomiting every night and is having the flu on and off, along with temperature. He has also lost weight.
More info is needed: Your pediatrician will evaluate the problem best. Sometimes new environments will have viruses that take time to develop antibodies to protect:; however fever and weight loss are a concern and need to be carefully evaluated. Weight loss may be associated with poor eating habits or even psychological issues with your child in a new environment. Good luck.
