865758 tn?1285952904 Can anyone tell me what the effect, if any, on my thyroid will be from suffering with the stomach flu? I just came down with it last night and today I am MISERABLE in more ways than one. Other than the stomach issues, it seems every single symptom I have experienced thus far has returned and with a vengeance!! Is this normal and how long does it take to level out???
Avatar n tn im 31 weeks and 4 days pregnant ; im having flu like symptoms ( sore throat , bit of a cough ) what medicine is best recommended for pregnant woman while pregnant with symptoms of the flu ?
Avatar m tn If the test comes back positive they will treat you will several antibiotics and possibly bismuth sulfite. As for the flu symptoms, plus the stomach pain it is possible that you had a virus if you had diarrhea? Hard to know without all the information and test results.
Avatar n tn Hi, I was wondering if my stomach flu caused my menstrual cycle? I recently got the stomach flu on Thanksgiving (before eating any of the thanksgiving food) And i still haven't gotten my period, i'm just getting worried about it. I was hoping you could tell me about it.
Avatar f tn What can I do to get rid of the flu? Im 15 weeks. My body is so weak and I feel horrible.
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 You say "I have a 7 month baby and has the stomach flu." Do you mean you have the flu or the baby has the flu? If the latter, go with the advice from margy. If the former, feed the baby as usual, keeping yourself as hydrated as possible. (Stomach flu doesn't transmit in breast milk.
Avatar f tn I had the flu around 20 weeks and all is well. Dr gave me that one flu medicine that is on commercials a lot... I forgot what it's called but it's only five pills. I was concerned for baby but he is fine. I'm 32 weeks now. STAY HYDRATED I can not emphasize that enough... fever and dehydration can be really bad for baby so drink LOTS of water. I would say a gallon a day. Go to the Dr. I actually got the flu from going to the ER for severe chest pain.
Avatar f tn If its just a cold you and your baby should be fine but if its the flu is more serious because the medicine they give for the flu is harmful for the baby and since is the flu season you should go get the shot as soon as you can..
Avatar f tn I took Maalox antacid for the first two days, but the more I take this medicine, the more often my stomach aches. My doctor said that it may be the medicine - Maalox that causes this pain, so he changed my medicine to geltazine capsule. Then this month, my son was diagnosed with the same - gastritis. he is just two years old. is it possible for a two year kid to have this disease? he was prescripted with the same medicine- Maalox.
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 f tn If your having a hard time keeping did down try the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, appesauce, tea) protein shakes can help too. And plenty of rest! I was sick with the stomach flu for a week and half and that's what they told me. They were able to put me on medicine to help with the symptoms. Get well!
Avatar m tn - stomach cramps / gastric pains below the ribcage at the center area -slightly bloated -gassy, need to burp and pass gas frequently -occasional diarrhoea, very seldom, mostly bowel movements are normal but stools are a bit greenish At first I went to a GP, she prescribed ranitidine, hyoscine butylbromide and eviline forte suspension. However it was not much of a help and I went to the hospital that night for severe stomach cramps/gastric pains.
Avatar f tn I'm 14 weeks pregnant, and I have the stomach flu. I've heard lots of things about being sick while pregnant, should everything be okay or what do I need to do to help stay healthy?
Avatar n tn I m not a doctor but i dont believe your symptoms are from a simple sinus.
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 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 n tn Well one thing is the flu is viral so even medicine won't really effect it besides to give relief to the symptoms for a little while. With a fever that means it's turned bacterial and you may have an infection which then is when antibiotics will help.
Avatar m tn ve never experienced this when I get the usual stomach flu. Symptoms are gone within days…. Salmonella poisoning was the main suspect during my hospital visit. Im assuming that the fact that these weird symptoms are still taking place, must support the suspicion that I did get salmonella poisoning? or these symptoms could still be that of the antibiotic.
9475243 tn?1405300275 I threw up and had watery diarreah Sunday night and all day Monday and Monday night. Tuesday early my bf took me to the emergency room. They said I had stomach flu and pumped me with IV fluids and gave me some medicine for the watery diarreah I was having. So today is Friday and I still feel weak and slightly dizzy when standing and a little nausea. I have been eating rice and jello. What else should I do to feel better and less weak and nauseous....?
Avatar f tn Was wondering if anyone knows what kind of cold medicine I can take being 13 wks pregnant?
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 m tn after a week of flu, i went to see a doctor for flu medicine but after 3 days, the flu still dont go away. funny thing, i started to think about something has gone wrong when i had sex with the prostitute. my second wife, got an unkwown bruise on her thigh, her vagina became smelly and has yeast-like thing. my 1st wife, after recovering from the flu, she said has lost weight about 4kg in 5 weeks. and she also starts to develop rash on both of her hands.
