I had my first case of gastroenteritis a few days ago, and while it was thankfully a brief experience, I'm not sure if I should be worried about catching it again from my girlfriend, who gave it to me after being sick herself a week prior. Am I now immune? (Just from her, I'm assuming I can catch it from another source just like I could at anytime.) [more inside]
Late Friday/early Saturday I was up at midnight being sick to my stomach (the #2 way). After that I took some Rx anti-nausea meds and tried to go back to sleep. At around 5 am I threw up (which, as an emetephobic is a huge, scary deal for me). So at 5am I took a Xanax, 2 Pepto pills and another anti nausea pill). I slept on and off (only waking up when my boyfriend gave me sips of water). [more inside]
Urgent care? ER? Where am I supposed to go? I don't have a doctor here (Fairfax County, VA). I'm clueless. I got the flu last weekend but am still experiencing symptoms, including a new one - a burning hot pain in the pit of my stomach. [more inside]
Very long-lasting stomach bug. Good self-care (well-hydrated, well-slept) but symptoms still bad after 13 days. [more inside]
Does any one have stomach flu (gastroenteritis) horror stories? I am going day 5 and I have never heard of anyone having it longer than 2 days.
My lady friend has been sick for a year, and nobody can figure out what's wrong. Has anyone had any experience with this kind of sickness? [more inside]
