just remember there are some pretty nasty stomach viruses going around right now. And, you work in a nursing home? So you are probably exposed to C dif. Have you done stool cultures? I was real sick about a month ago and i was wondering if it was the zoloft i take or food poisoning or something, also I work in a hospital so I am exposed to a lot of stuff. Well, i had actually done a stool culture 17 hours before i got sick with that bad virus going around (i did the culture because i am having other digestive issues). It came back positive for norovirus and equivocal for salmonella (meaning they couldn't tell one way or another if it was positive or negative for salmonella). I had a fever at around 101 for 2 days, threw up for about 10 hours (threw up 12 times) and i had watery diarrhea about 15 times. In fact, about 30 people i work with had similar symptoms, so they all had norovirus as well in my opinion. Plus, a lot of inpatients were coming in with same symptoms. So you probably have a viral thing. But, being that you work with elderly people, you should probably do stool cultures. This has been one germy year with flu, bad colds, bad viruses going around. Seems like everyone I know everywhere is getting sick and their children are getting sick.
