Stomach flu symptoms when to call doctor

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach flu symptoms when to call doctor


Avatar f tn I was told there is no reason to call your doctor unless you have a fever or you can't keep water down and are at risk for dehydration. There won't be anything your doc can do otherwise. There is nothing to be done for a normal stomach virus and antibiotics are only used for an infection which would have an accompanying fever. Just ride it out!
Avatar f tn I called off work today, and I have tomorrow off if I need it. The doctor said not to go to the doctor until I actually have a temp above 100. Do i just need rest? Or am I in need of the doctor?
Avatar f tn I'm 25 weeks and 3 days and I have the stomach flu anything I can take to help please let me know

11587059 tn?1427628263 Yeah I ended up going to the hospital and getting fluids and zophran. I was getting dizzy and thought I was going to pass out. You may want to call your doc if you're in preterm labour.
8600220 tn?1398955674 It does take about a week to get over viral stomach flu which isn't really a flu but that is what most people call it. It is caused by norovirus usually. If you are able to drink fluids maybe cut back on eating solid foods too much and you should feel better. If it doesn't get better you could have a bacterial food poisoning. Do you have a high fever? See if you cut back on your solid food intake and try soups and see if you feel better.
Avatar f tn I'm 12 weeks pregnant today and have been up all night with diarrhea, upset stomach, headache, and stuffy nose. I haven't thrown up(yet) but this diarrhea is killing me is there I can do to make it stop or should I call my dr when her office opens? This is my third child and I've never been sick while pregnant so I don't know what to do. Please help!!
Avatar f tn Several family members have been sick with virus; now my 10 year old lab became lethargic and then threw up several times. She is unable to take her medicine for hip pain. Should we carry her outside to go to bathroom? I can't tell if she is hurting too much to walk or just too sick. Vet is closed today, but will be taking her first thing in morning.
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.
108334 tn?1253644395 I always sleep on my left side and tried to put my feet up when I went back to sleep. Hard to do on your side. Today my left leg is still so much more swollen than the right side. Does this warrant call to the doctor? My BP has been borderline the last few visits; between about 130/75 and 140/86. I do not see my doctor until Tuesday, but I have an ultrasound (with the perinatologist) on Monday. Thanks for your help.
1844410 tn?1322749080 On the other hand, I guess I never knew any pregnant ladies with the flu either. I will probably call the doc tomorrow to ask, but anyone have any insight?
Avatar f tn Doesn't sound like labor to me. You should call your doctor though. It doesn't sound like the stomach flu either. Sounds like you ate something that didn't agree with you. That happened to me a few times.
Avatar f tn First time mommy, so always worried! I'm 26w3d and so far smooth sailing. I'm just wondering when would it be a good time to call the doctor if you haven't felt the baby in awhile? I always feel my little boy at least every two hours, so I'm just trying to take precautions in case something goes wrong.
Avatar f tn I finally went to the doctor, she prescribed me Imodium and I've felt pretty good for the last few days thank goodness.
Avatar f tn If Somethin Feels "Wrong" Go To The Hospital.Your Body Will Tell You When It's No Longer Just The Flu. I Got The Flu/Stomach Virus (I Think The Doctor Called It Nerovirus) Wound Up Going Into Early Labor. Thankfully I Only Dilated To A 1 When They Caught It And Stopped It. Just Be Careful And Stay Hydrated And Listen To Your body.
Avatar f tn You should call your doctor and ask them what they want you to do. Just to be on the safe side.
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 I have been sick for five days now constant fever, horrible cough, bodyaches, and stomach sourness. My fever reached 105.2 yesterday that is when I thought I should get to a doctor, my doctor was not working so I had to see a different one. 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.
4287262 tn?1358999012 I have the flu right now too. I took like 3 bites of chicken noodle soup and threw it right back up, quite violently (tmi). I have been drinking sprite, water, and lots of juices especially oj and the v8 splashes are really good. I was feeling light headed too, honestly I would try to sleep it off. I'm starting to feel better and I didn't go to the doctor because I had the same symptoms on Halloween and they said to rest up and drink fluids and only take Tylenol of course.
341655 tn?1240368839 I was recently diagnosed with adrenal insufficiancy and have been on prednisone 10mg and florinef .01mg 3 x's per day and I was wondering what happens if you get the stomach flu and are unable to take these meds by mouth? will you have to go in daily for steroid shots or a picc line and do them at home?
9023883 tn?1402943375 I'm so achy. Like my hips and my shoulders. I feel like I'm gonna puke and my stomach is sensitive to the touch. And my back is sore. I'm 38 weeks pregnant. I had the flu shot and I Dont think I'm running fever. I feel so puny....
Avatar n tn Hi again, I was just reading more about why the doctor may have prescribed penicillinV for you when you have "the flu." If he suspected meningitis they will give you penicillin to start with and then if you present with more symptoms such as rash, or stiff neck, light phobia, bad headache in the back of the neck and so forth then you should call the doctor that prescribed the drug or go the ER if he isn't in.
