3227684 tn?1347373065 Hello everyone, I have always had the fear to vomit, which mainly implies fear to contract norovirus or rotavirus. I had gastroenteritis once during my childhood; since then, I didn't have it; at least, I didn't throw up. But the fear is always present, especially today, because I walked near a vomit pool on the floor of a public place. It was not very close to me; I was certainly at three to five meters from it. Is it possible that I catch the virus?
1770029 tn?1325802355 These viruses are seasonal like the flu and so are mistakenly called stomach flu or as a slang term. The Norovirus usually goes away in 2-3 days. You need to hydrate yourself perhaps with gatoraide. If you can eat have a banana or other food with potassium. Since you just have nausea it could be other things if you don't develop diarrhea. Food allergies, and other things can cause this too especially in the lack of fever.
Avatar f tn It depends on what type of infection you have whether or not it is contagious. So if you have a type that is viral such as one caused by norovirus or rotavirus you could have a contagious type or a bacterial one like Clostridium difficile, Salmonella or Shigella pr Ecoli that has a toxin (not all strains have it). So you need to find out which one by having the doctor do some lab tests or telling you which one you have. The main thing is washing your hands well after using the toilet.
Avatar n tn t sure if it were a bug or what..but then his brother threw up a half hour later. and we have never seen them both throw up so close together. Usually one catches it from the other, but it takes at least a few hours before he's sick. So we were wondering if it might have been something they ate. But the only thing we can think of, is they wanted these club crackers for a snack last night. I tried one first.. and thought it was a little stale.. asked my husband to try one..

585414 tn?1288941302 The researchers said that many other viruses responsible for a range of diseases could also be targeted by the new approach. They include the norovirus, which causes winter vomiting, and rotavirus, which results in severe diarrhoea and kills thousands of children in developing countries....

Avatar f tn We all got the Norovirus on the return ferry from France. I cant go to work and feel I have let everyone down. I wont earn money as no sickness pay, and I have to tell manager that I cant come in. She probably wont believe me or else think I am a wimp. She will let me know how many extra hours she will have to do to fill my role as well as hers.
Avatar f tn Hi, and sorry you are ill. Well, norovirus usually goes away on its own within about a few days. So, it may be bacterial or even a parasite. If you haven't had a culture done you should have one done. Have you eaten out a lot or at a friends house or family over the holidays? Did anyone else get sick? Your potassium would have to be extremely low (below about 2.7) for it to cause Afib but it is possible.

Avatar f tn It could be that new norovirus that is going around, it is said to be very severe. Google "new norovirus" or "this year norovirus" and you should find it. Another thing to check, just to rule it out -- google the symptoms of appendicitis.
Avatar f tn Not usually but you can. Since this particular virus gave you those symptoms to start with I would assume that it was part of this virus. It is possible you got a second virus that was norovirus (viral food poisoning) that can give you diarrhea, and/or nausea or gas. You don' always get every symptom with it. The flu can make you sick at your stomach but not usually pain. If it is norovirus it will pass soon.
Avatar n tn Has anyone had a baby have intussusception after getting the rotavirus vaccination? My son recently had surgery on his intestines just a week after he had the rotavirus vaccine. Some articles on line say there may be a link.
