« on: May 15, 2014, 04:47:51 PM »
Hello , I'm freaking out and looking for done advice . I work in a crowded daycare and the stomach bug was going around and 2 weeks ago i got it :( lots of gas stomach gurgling , diarrhea ,threw up 1x and a burny feeling in my stomache also had a headache and fatigue but after. 3 days I was on the mend BUT I'm still excepting some heartburn acid reflux and occasional stomach gurgling and it's been 2 weeks since my bout . Nowwwww I'm combing myself I have some sort of stomach digestion disorder that will lead to a life of misery. Iran this isn't normal , I will say my bowels are normal and I also do eat a lot of fruit and veggies everyday , but I'm feeling slot of anxiety from this , :(

If it's been 2 weeks and you still feel bad, you should go see a doctor and get checked out to be safe.

Also I think it's safe to say your anxiety is making things worse, so try to relax. Your bowels are fine, so that should be some relief to you. You don't have the full set of symptoms anymore and aren't throwing up, take some relief in that.

For the virus that's making its rounds, it can take up to 3 weeks to feel better my Dr said.  He said the one thing they've found that is helping is to cut back on dairy and take an antacid.  Hang in there, stomach bugs make anxious too.

As someone with a lifetime of stomach issues, I'd suggest antacids for the burning and gurgling (I use Gas-X thin strips) and probiotics if you've been vomiting and having diarrhea.  (I admit those don't usually help me out but a lot of people swear by them, so it's probably just an individual thing; certainly can't hurt.)

Probiotics have helped me immensely in the past when it comes to acid reflux and heartburn. Try eating yogurt if you feel up to it.
