Stomach virus lasting two weeks

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach virus lasting two weeks


Avatar f tn I went to the Dr and they did a pregnancy test and other urinary tests and everything came back normal so they diagnosed me with a stomach virus. But I've never known of a virus lasting this long and causing extreme heartburn. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? A stomach virus or something more serious? Please help!!!!
Avatar n tn I started around September 20th. I had my period, normal-heavy, for two-three weeks, with a few days where it was light enough to make me think it was over. I went to the doctor, who took some blood and said I wasn't anemic or pregnant (I thought maybe it was a miscarriage because that is what my sister told me happened to her)... She said to wait 2-3 more weeks, and then to come back if I was still on my period. So it continued...
Avatar m tn By the end of that week I had tingling all over boxer short area The following week I had trouble walking due to the pain and tingling, this eventually turned into burning in the urethra and scrotum lasting two to three additional weeks. No noticeable blisters ever formed.I also suffered nerve like pain from buttock down back of right leg.
15480 tn?1302533402 I am 24 weeks pregnant and I have been having diarrhea and stomach pain since last night. Everyone I know has it. I can still eat (bland) and I am drinking enough. Should I call the doctor or see if it passes soon?? I am just worried about hurting the baby. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Now I may have laryngitis. This flu has lasted about two weeks. I have lost my voice and have difficulties in respiration. I have successive infections almost all the year round.
Avatar m tn Dear Dr Handsfield, I caught an undiagnosed virus/infection after an unprotected sexual encounter nearly a year ago that affects my life on a daily basis. 2-6 days after event with random girl: Itchy scrotum. 1-2 weeks: intense tingling in my groin/anal area and down legs, so bad I could hardly walk. Tongue: teeth marks around it, taste buds red and inflamed, white sores in mouth. Lymph node in my groin swollen. Need to urinate excessively, with post urination drip. Severe dehydration.
Avatar m tn g. lactose, gluten or yeast intolerance. I would usually think he had a stomach virus or parasite but his stool came negative, although that doesn't rule out a virus, there are so many and numerous strains out there which cannot be tested. What about a urinary tract infection? Wsa his urine OK? Did they perform a colonoscopy or a gastroscopy? Perhaps having a look in there would not be a bad idea or to perform a biopsy. This might sound strange but what about his appendix.
Avatar n tn She told me that my bilirubins were back to normal and that I probably had a long lasting virus that cleared out of my system. She doesn't understand why I'm not feeling better. The next step is to order an upper endoscopy. With my symptoms now, I have some days where I feel almost normal, and some days where I can't even get out of bed because I feel so ill. The Prilosec I'm taking really isn't helping, so we don't think that I have acid reflux. No one has any ideas.
Avatar n tn I cleared the virus after two full years of interferon/ribo, six years ago... I have been experiencing anxiety attacts and possibly cognitive disorders...Can anyone refer me to a website with info?
Avatar n tn I went to the opthamologist and he just told me to wash and moisturize my face daily and use Restasin (sp?). The eye irritation went away after about two weeks. During that time, I noticed that the itching on my arms was becoming worse and I also began getting the small bumps on the back of my thighs and they itched as well. I went to the dermatologist and he diagnosed eczema and gave me some prescription petroleum jelly looking ointment. This DID not work, so I went back.

Avatar n tn I have had 10 stomach viruses in the last 14 months, each lasting from 2-6 days. I am a 24 yr old female who has never had any real health issues. I grew up in a very health oriented home, so I had very few illnesses growing up. This change where I started getting the viruses all started after having my first child in 2007. Her pediatrician recommended I get a flu mist (I'd never had one before), and shortly after I did, my first virus came and lasted 6 days.
253566 tn?1219683299 I have been cured and off all meds for two years but still suffering and do not know where to turn. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue, Systemic Yeast Infection, crazy weight gain (50 lbs), gurd, muscle weakness and the list goes on and on! At my last liver docs appt they "apologized for destroying my life" and said that maybe I would recover in 6 or 7 years. They gave no suggestions for a speedier recovery saying my system was in chaos.
Avatar m tn I've got the exact same thing, I'm 18 and have been running for years, the last three of which have included cross country and track, and the past two years without fail I've been getting severe stomach cramps about a mile into my runs which force me to stop anywhere from 5-30 minutes. They feel remarkably similar to menstrual cramps, but I know they're definitely not.
Avatar n tn She associates the onset after a bad bout of the stomach virus or the flu. She told me that many people associate it with heart burn that never gets better or sometimes gets worse. Anyway, there is a test for it (which told me I was positive) and now I am on a course of two antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor. Lucky for me, I'm allergic to one of the antibiotics, so I get to be nauseous for the course of the medication -- 2 weeks. Hope that this helps.
Avatar n tn its hard to describe but when I feel my stomach bubbling or before number two my heart will flutter..Also I think I have found somthing very new and weird..everytime before my mind is aware that I have to go urinate my heart flutters and lets my mind no before my body is even aware..weird but i swear on my life true.
Avatar n tn He said no that more than likely it was a virus and while anyone knows antibiotics do nothing to address viruses he prescribed pill form of levoquin just as a precaution to guard against so called secondary infection and stated the virus would just have to run its course.
Avatar n tn I think it's too much of a coincidence that both he and I came down with a pinched nerve or happened to sleep wrong and end up with the same symptoms--mine lasting 4 weeks so far and his lasting 5 1/2 weeks! I keep asking my friend if he's any better but he's not getting any relief. I know his MD was going to order an MRI and I will be very interested in knowing what happens with that. I am in physical therapy 2 times a week but so far that hasn't helped at all.
Avatar n tn This is important because failure of medical therapy would indicate surgery to disconnect the duodenum from the stomach. This makes it very difficult for any bile to make it backwards to the stomach and allow the stomah to heal. You clearly don't want this if bile reflux gastritis isn't really the problem.
Avatar n tn I was crusing forums to see if anyone had anything related to what I'm experiencing now with my stomach (nausea and diarrhea for the past two weeks) But there have been a few rare occasions over the past few years were early in the morning I feel like I’m going to have diarrhea and have to sit for a few minutes before it actually comes out, mostly liquid, and then upon rising I almost (and sometimes do) pass out. It really scares me!
Avatar n tn Every one of the six of us gets flu-like symptoms every two to three weeks, lasting for a week. Antibiotics seem to help but it comes back immediately once the antibiotics are done. So far it's causing respiratory distress, kidney issues, fevers over a hundred, and extreme fatigue. I've been researching and it seems hardly anyone's taking environmental factors into account.
446474 tn?1446351282 I got a call from my hepatologist tonight notifying me that my HCV has returned one month after stopping 48 weeks of Gilead's Sofosbuvir + Ribavirin treatment. I was 1 of 50 of the first cirrhotics to treat using this therapy. "An Open-Label Study to Explore the Clinical Efficacy of Sofosbuvir With Ribavirin Administered Pre-Transplant in Preventing Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Recurrence Post-Transplant" I was undetectable by week two. Continued to be undetectable for 47 weeks.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately after tht I decided to go on diet to loose some weight. And so I was eating only 40% of my normal diet. After two weeks of this sexual encounter, I had following symptoms: 1) Flaky rash on my groin and scrotum and one white pimple like on my scrotum. - Recovered fully. 2) Swollen Throat with Yeast infection inside my mouth under both sides of cheek- Better now but still have some yeast. I have been using listerine since then. 3) Ear Pain - Still have it once a while.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, I'm sorry that many of you are going through the same thing that I am. I had a heathly pregnancy 17 months ago, so when I got my u/s on Monday the 15th, I was shocked, to say the least when I was told that things weren't progressing as expected and there was no heartbeat detected. I was told to come back today (March 18th), but to expect a misscarriage. I should mention that I am supposed to be a little over 8 weeks.

Avatar n tn I finally went to my doctor two weeks ago who gave me Nexium tablets and tested me for helibactor. The helibactor is negative and the tablets have had no effect. He mentioned doing a ultrasound scan next. Have you any idea what the heck this could be the start of?
Avatar n tn I had a really really light period for two weeks and then two weeks later I am spotting for a couple of days.. you can't really see it sometimes, and only when I wipe... Does anybody know what this means?!! I am married, 18 years old, and trying to get pregnant!!
Avatar n tn For about 2 weeks back in May I was taking 7.5/500 Lortab for a back injury. I was taking 2 every 4 hours. As my back began to feel better I began taking less and at this point I find I only have to take them occassionally. Once in a while I'll take 1/2 a pill if my back is bothering me but the other day I took 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon as my back was hurting more than usual. Then yesterday, I didn't take any because my back wasn't hurting very much.
Avatar f tn and she has been on two antibotic. She use to get fevers for a couple of weeks. My doc. thought she should be tested for allergies and she is now on claritin. I pump her full of vitiamins and make sure she blows her nose about 10 times a day. Also I have been giving her airborn when she gets really sick. Her cold is just never ending but she is feeling better now, just a stuffy nose still. Hope this helps.
