Common Questions and Answers about Stomach virus pepto


Avatar_f_tn I have been suffering froma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus for a few days now and it has worked its way to my intestines and is giving me potty problems. Can I take pepto? I don't want to bug my dr. over this. I am a teacher and it is hard to just run to the bathroom whenever I need. Should I just suffer through it?
Avatar_n_tn I am a 44 year old female. About 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with a stomach virus and given suppository for nausea/vomiting. The vomiting subsided the next day but a week later I was still very nauseous with bloating, stomach and abdominal cramps, diarrhea and a fever of 100.6. I have not been able to each much but feel full all the time.
Avatar_m_tn One night I could not sleep because the upper part of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> was aching really bad. My aunt bought me some pepto bismol and a sprite, it worked a little while later and I was able to sleep. Two days later there is pain in my stomach again, but not as bad as last time, and iThrew up twice.

Avatar_m_tn 25 mg/15 mL) (antihistamine) The diarrhea will resolve as the virus subsides. Use some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> Bismo if you want some relieve from it a little sooner. I hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn Anytime you have unexplained weight loss you should always get checked. ps a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus or bug can cause the problems also but after three weeks or so you should start to improve. get checked for peace of mind..
Avatar_f_tn Hi, I got the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus a week ago and ever since I got it, i've still been suffering from stmach aches and nausea all day. I haven't thrown up or anything, but I always feel like I am. I've been putting a hot water bottle on my stomach and taking pepto Bismol to help, but it kind of isn't working that well. I felt better for the 3 days after I got the virus and was eating, but suddenly, it got worse yesterday.
Avatar_n_tn It probably is just gas or you may have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> bismol WILL turn your tongue black and also your stool sometimes. Hope this helps.
593810_tn?1251226630 I have been feeling so great once i started into my 2nd trimester, but now i have the worst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> aches. I think it's a mixture of constipation which i've had from the very beginning, and the urge to throw up. I dont know what to do. I'm trying to keep the water down, but i feel like it's just sitting in my chest ready to come up. and i have no appetite whatsoever. Can i take anything?
Avatar_n_tn I'm 22/f & for at least the past 10 yrs I've had a "sensitive stomach." Over the past 5 yrs or so I've been going through bouts of a week or two where I'm terribly nauseated no matter what I eat, and have intermittant diarrhea, but it always clears up. I've been to my GP about it & his opinions were: 1. "That's too bad, some people have sensitive stomachs" and 2. "Try a bland diet for a few days. It's just a virus.
Avatar_n_tn All related. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> is just about 100% normal and happened literally OVERNIGHT. Only a virus would act that way after hurting me for 8 weeks. I am sitting here drinking coffee and wondering if the stress of working so hard and an emotional upset, even though I am not outwardly upset, brought this virus out in me. Yesterday a friend brought some food to the door. I could feel myself getting better as we spoke. I ask you again, miracle from God, or spontaneous withdrawal of the HSV virus?
Avatar_m_tn I am a sixty-three year old woman who ran her first marathon in November 2008. After a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus around the first of the year (2009), I started having a lot of abdominal pain. Did not do anything about it until in May 2009 I had to go to the ER with severe abdominal pain and fever. They diagnosed diverticulitis (without a CT Scan), sent me home with some Augmentin and that was supposed to be that.
Avatar_n_tn I am a firm believer in eating 3 meals a day with snacks in between but for the past week I am lucky to have a cup of coffee for breakfast and maybe a small lunch. I also have to stay pretty close to a bathroom. Unlike a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus it is not improving with time. I am extremely tired.
Avatar_n_tn Our family has been struggling with this as well - I think it's a virus. We all have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> pain for a couple of weeks, and my almost 2-year-old daughter has had a 5-day bout of diarrhea as well. It almost seems like lactose intolerance - I'm going to try cutting out dairy for my 2-year-old and see if that helps, but it's hard because she's really into cheese, milk, and ice cream. Putting a heating pad on her tummy or rubbing it provides temporary relief.
728965_tn?1266377245 I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas! I have been sick to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> for just about 6 days... I even felt sick enough to call in to work on Monday. I've tried everything. pepto, water, trying to make myself hurl (thinking I'd feel better - made it worse). I had left over anti-nausea meds from some stomach issues last year i tried, and it just made me tired and caused even more of an upset stomach. In this time, I've had not fever, but have been constipated and had diarrhea.
Avatar_n_tn She associates the onset after a bad bout of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus or the flu. She told me that many people associate it with heart burn that never gets better or sometimes gets worse. Anyway, there is a test for it (which told me I was positive) and now I am on a course of two antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor. Lucky for me, I'm allergic to one of the antibiotics, so I get to be nauseous for the course of the medication -- 2 weeks. Hope that this helps.
Avatar_n_tn I'm a 23 y/o female. In April I came down with what doctors think was just a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> bug. It took me a few weeks to get over the worst of the bug but since then, I have been dealing with stomach problems every single day. I am a vegetarian and I don't eat much dairy anyway, I don't drink coffee, I don't drink alcohol... During the eight plus months this has been going on I go back and forth between diarrhea and constipation. I get really bad gas pains but not a lot of gas, really.
Avatar_n_tn I try to squeeze it out and only a hard stool comes out. 5. The sweating stops and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> cramp subsides. I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar_f_tn When I went to the doctors they said its probably a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus and handed me a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> bismol and sent me on my way, but I'm not sure if that's the proper diagnosis. Any ideas anyone?
Avatar_f_tn first I start to feel a severe pain in my UPPER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> . . if you take your right hand and lay it flat on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> with your pinky finger laying just above your belly button. . the pain is all where your hand is covering. I have a pretty decent pain tolerence but this cripples me. next I start shaking and sweating LOTS I get diarreah and a nasea but I dont always throw up.
Avatar_f_tn It wasn't a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus, but it's something going around where I live. With typical common cold symptoms but more severe (without vomiting, stomach aches, etc.). and also, I'm not very stressed out. Maybe a little bit, but I've been way more stressed out before and it never got this bad. I'm really just getting worried about it. I can't think of anything that would cause this to happen. Can anyone help me ASAP before I tear my stomach out?
Avatar_n_tn My daughter had the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> flu back in May 2013. Ever since then she says her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> hurts, so I give her pepto or Tums or Sprite or ginger. Nothing works. She is now having diarrhea and a low grade fever. I thought it was due to dairy but often she doesn't even eat/drink anything dairy. She says her belly hurts could this be a virus still lingering from when she had the flu? Or is this something else?
Avatar_f_tn Based on his symptoms, is this a possibility or does it seem like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus or something less severe?
Avatar_n_tn before the surgery I had constant pain in my throat and burning in my chest. However, my question is what happens if I get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> virus? is it safe for me to throw up or will I even be able to throw up? I can burp, so I was just wondering. Thank you.
970463_tn?1294561362 I could not sit up because they hurt so bad. I took some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pepto</span> Bismol and put the heating pad on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>. I felt like I couldn't get warm enough but I wanted a fan on my face. So anyways. That was the start of it. I felt mostly better the next morning. I've lived most of my life with a stomach ache and didn't think much of still having one.
Avatar_f_tn Hi, I just joined here. I'm 16 years old (female; normal weight->123 @ 5'3"), and I've been having pretty bad stomach pain for years now, but it's progressivly changed. Since November 08, I've had this pain. It was in my right lower side at the time. I went to the hospital for that, thinking it was appendicitis, which is wasn't. I had some sort of scan (don't remember what it's called, but I had to drink barium), but nothing showed up.
