Common Questions and Answers about Stomach flu how long are you contagious


Avatar f tn If you got the flu shot you most likely have the flu I would go to hospital so they can test you because the flu is very contagious and your putting others at risk. If you can't keep fluids down that is harmful to your baby because it can cause dehydration. And is some cases the flu has been known to kill unborn baby. Just go to the doctors to see what is going on better be safe and find out early then to be sorry and find out if is the flu.

The symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, low grade fever up to 100 degrees and possible cramps are caused by many things, virus or bacterial. However, the most common cause is a virus called Norovirus. It is spead from person to person by fecal oral contamination.

Avatar f tn how long have you had this?
Avatar n tn I think we are contagious coz this morning I watched my wife talking to his brother and I noticed that his brother gets cough in the mids of their conversation, but I wondered because among the people inside the room only his brother gets cough, those the other people who are two meters away didn't experience coughing or sneezing..
Avatar f tn How long is too long for the Flu to last or to be feeling the effects of it? Had mostly headach and upset stomach, aching but no vomiting. Perhaps a lite fever for a day. The worst was over at the end of third day but still feel rotten, weak, tired and not inclined to eat much now on the 7th day. MY husband had it first so is into his10th day and also feeling much as I do. We are both in our early 70's and neither have had Flu Shots.
Avatar f tn If you had the Swine flu 3 weeks ago you shouldn't be contagious anymore. The cough could be a lingering affect. My son had a lingering cough for weeks after getting the Swine flu but he also go pneumonia on top of that. You might want to get a chest x-ray and make sure it didn't turn into pneumonia. The smoking can suppress the immune system and make it take longer to heal, especially where your lungs are concerned. Get your ears checked out while you're at it.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had the stomach flu while pregnant? I'm 90% sure I have it. I feel absolutely miserable. I want to eat but I don't want to get ore sick off what I eat. Any suggestions? My symptoms are terrible belly ache for over 24 hours, weak and tired, acid reflux, nauseated, diarreah.
Avatar f tn What exactly WAS your exposure? That makes a big difference in how worried you should be about these things? Let's start there. What was your exposure?
Avatar n tn His condition is recurring, non-contagious, and very long lasting, and we are worried about him, so any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
Avatar n tn I think you should step up and talk to both of these gals you've been with in the last month or so. Let them know that you've been diagnosed with genital herpes and you have no idea how long you've had it. That way they know that they need to get themselves tested to find out what their own status is. Wouldn't you want someone to do the same for you?

Avatar n tn Go under the perception that you can be contagious at all times even though most of the time you probably are not.
Avatar f tn Well, unfortunately, you can be contagious a few days to up to two weeks after a stomach bug. But usually it is 3 days. However, she may have had gastroenteritis, etc. which isn't contagious. I'd say you are in the clear but good hygiene to prevent illness is always a good idea.
Avatar m tn my girlfriend has the H1N1 virus, and she started having the symptoms yesterday, today she is a lot worse with a very high long till i can see her again? how long will she be contagious? i'm also suffering from strep throat for the past three days so my immune system is more open to viruses and flu. I'm on antibiotics by the way for my strep throat. its weird because we were together on Thursday and i was sick at the moment suffering from strep throat.
Avatar n tn You are fine. As long as you aren't having sex, you won't get it. I would wonder about this though - chlamydia is easily cured with antibiotics, so if she hasn't gotten treatment, I'd have to wonder why. Maybe your uncle meant she HAD chlamydia? Or did he have it and not tell her? That would be a lousy thing to do - untreated chlamydia can cause a lot of problems for her.
Avatar f tn Usually you are contagious before you even have any symptoms. Wash hands frequently and don't use the same bathroom if possible. Good luck and I hope you don't all get it!
