Stomach flu symptoms in children

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach flu symptoms in children


1770029 tn?1325802355 Hi and sorry you are ill. There is no such thing as "stomach flu" meaning the influenza virus does not cause flu in the stomach. It is considered gastroenteritis. 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 My 2 yr old son has just vomitted for the 3rd time since I've been home (12am) and 1 more time before that. He pukes and doesn't have a problem passing right back out. For example his last time he roled over and puked, cried a tiny bit and then he passed right back out. 3 days ago I contracted, what I thougt, was food poisening, but all last week my wife's mother was really sick with something... seems to be a coincidence!
Avatar n tn Sounds like stomach flu/virus , it has been going around this year,in the US dont know what country you are living but we have had here , it also seems to recur It may be a good idea to have her checked by your Doctor .

5421936 tn?1378849147 So my daughter was throwing up on Saturday until about late afternoon. No other symptoms. I woke up today...stomach ache, headache, body ache, throwing up, diarrhea. Can't keep nothing done. No food, ginger ale. My hubby came home and now he has it. Ughhhh I hope this passes like...tonight. I just ate some applesauce and a few saltines and sipping Gatorade. Being 9 months pregnant and stomach flu is not fun at all.
Avatar n tn Yes, these are all symptoms of type I diabetes in children. My child was wetting the bed, extremely thirsty all the time and was vomiting; his vomiting, we think, was contributed to a stomach virus he had at the time. We took him to the ER due to dehydration -they did a blood chemistry and his blood sugar was 399-they immediately admitted him to ICU and he was put on IV insulin. He's been a diabetic now for 3 years-he's now 9. He's has handled it amazingly well!

2085202 tn?1373199740 Hello, can't really find a group for this topic on MH. Thought this was the best bet. I've been getting alot of bad stomach pain lately. I've also had the flu. Can the flu actually cause this stomach pain? It feels like the after effects of getting punched in the stomach. Don't like it. Someone told me it's due to all the drainage, post nasal drip. Def. getting alot of body aches too. Had recent bloodwork and it all came back normal. Doc put me on azythromyicin antibiotics.
Avatar f tn and I think every one of the symtoms I just listed are classic stomach flu symptoms as well. Now that Ive read that gosh..the next time I get the 24 hour stomach flu bug...Im going to be really scared! Anyone have any thoughts about that?
Avatar f tn So I've had the stomach flu since Sunday night & its now Thursday morning. I'm starting to get really freaked out that its lasting this long. My symptoms are the usual symptoms, diarrhea, headache, a fever, chills, etc.. I haven't thrown up at all this whole time thankfully. And I thought I was getting better because all the symptoms have went away, except I'm still getting diarrhea. Its just once a day, its not chronic like im running to the bathroom.
Avatar n tn There is stomach flu going round and many children have it ..Certainly if she is till sick and vomiting in the next 24 hours with a fever its always a good thing to have her checked out, meantime give her plenty of water and pedalite so she wont get dehydrated..ease up on the eating give her bland foods that wont make the issue worse .
Avatar n tn He told me I most likely have a sinus infection? Why do I have burning in my stomach and constant nausia? The fever seems to slowly disappearing and the bodyaches as well, but this conitinuous sickness feeling is the hardest part. I can 't stand to eat ANTHING.. I do not understand how this could be a sinus infetion and I took my first dose of antibiotics today(azithromicin) but I am curious will this help?
Avatar m tn I normally wouldnt be nervous bc it was low risk but i developed symptoms. 5 days post exposure i had flu like symptoms with fever, night sweats, sore throat, achey muscles, ect... I went to doctor and he said it was probaly the flu. However I received a flu shot 4 months ago!!! So what could it be??After the medicene I was better after 4 days or so. Since then I have terrible diahreaa and upset stomach. Please advise.
Avatar m tn gets around. Two days after I started having flu-like symptoms, achiness, intermittent headache, painful swollen glands in my throat and groin, itchiness. I thought maybe I had gotten herpes but then a couple days later I had a single incident of diarrhea that was followed by 3 days of constipation. Since then (about 3 weeks now) I have gone back and forth between constipation and diarrhea.
Avatar f tn I am 28 yrs old and have 3 children, I have been experiencing stomach ache, dizziness and nauseated for the pass couple of weeks. I know I am not pregnant cause I got a tubal ligation. Do y'all thinks it is because of stress and because I am overweight PLEASE HELP. I hate feeling miserable..
Avatar m tn I developed stomach flu like symtoms about 48 hours later, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dehydration, very tired. lost 15 lbs in water weight. But my wife had the stomach flu same symptoms the previous week. Also having some slight discomfort in my urethra. Going to the Dr in the next few days to see if I may have aquired a bladder, UTI infection from the dehydration, and to check for any STD's from the encounter, no discharge or pain when urinating.
Avatar n tn I thought that i was getting better after a couple of days, but soon was awakened with a stomach flu in the middle of the night, I'm not throwing up anymore, but still have diarrhea and a very consistent pain in my abdomen, which I'm pretty sure is gas. Although i haven't been able to walk upright for long amounts of time without the pain becoming overwhelming its almost by my belly button but isn't stuck in one spot. Any help is appreciated.
Avatar f tn Pregnant women are considered one of the three most vulnerable populations for getting the flu (children, the elderly, and pregnant women). I think 14 children have died from the flu so far this year. I sure wouldn't want to have the flu when pregnant, why add a reason to feel miserable and achey? But that is me, and you have your own bodily autonomy. You must do what you think is best for you.
2050045 tn?1343153733 If it only lasted a couple hours and not several days it was food poisoning...most people get it without even knowing it because they automatically label it as "stomach flu" if your doctor said 2 go if it doesn't go away I wouldn't worry about it if it's finally over with...
Business woman2 I have vomiting and diarreaha 104 fever. I can't keep anything in my stomach. Two days already.
Avatar f tn Well, I'm in California, and both my children have the 24 hour flu, one two days ago, vomiting and diarrhea, and the younger one today, but he just has diarrhea. Sometimes stomach flu goes around, in The Spring. I am on Victrelis (15th shot today, and havent had a loose bowel movement, since I began, pretty much the opposite. When I have had diarrhea in the past (which I HATE) I put myself on the BRAT diet, which is Bananas, (white)Rice, applesauce, and (dry white) Toast.
