What to eat when you have the flu and some diarrhea? No vomiting.

Bland and simple. There is no special answer here except keep it bland and simple. Usually you don't want anything more than this anyway. Avoid fatty foods that are heavy on the stomach. The main thing is to hydrate readily with sports drink and listen to your body - it has a way of telling you what to eat and what to avoid. Your appetite will return to normal as the illness passes.

I have been vomiting and diarrhea a mild fever of 100.8 and body and muscle pains could I have the flu even though I had a flu shot this year?

Possible. Flu shots are terrific, but they do not cover 100% of the flu strains. Also, when did you get the shot? It takes about two weeks for your body to build up full immunity to the strains it does cover. You could also have a really bad cold or a number of other viral or occasionally bacterial infections that should be self limited. If you do not start to get better after a cple days though, see a dr.
