Stomach flu, vomiting and diarrhea all thursday night. Drank lots of water, vomited more of course, but noticed green bits like mucus or chives in it?
Nothing serious: The color of vomit or diarrhea, or the appearance of bits and chunks of various sorts (mostly partly digested food), says nothing about the cause or severity of the problem.

Bile refluxing from the duodenum is enough to make vomit green. Hope you're feeling better -- if this is clearly not a mild self-limited illness, get seen. ...Read more
