Upset stomach for two weeks??
« on: April 20, 2011, 05:09:04 AM »
Two weeks ago tomorrow I came down with some sort of stomach bug (I think). I threw up a couple of times and had a quick transit time. My whole family got the same. However, I threw up again 3 days later, and then again a couple of days ago. My stomach still feels bloated, full, I'm nauseous, and I still have some diarrhea. I went to the doc and he thought it was just remnant stomach bug and gave me some anti-nausea pills, but I am totally freaked it's something worse!

I am also weaker than normal and have had some major "achey" off days.

Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? I am afraid it's the big C, something wrong with my liver, an autoimmune problem, etc etc

It may just be a persistent virus or flu. I would consult with your
physician and be specific about your symptoms, how long they have lasted, etc.

I did go to the doc and of course he wasn't concered. I guess it's *a little* better today; diarrhea is less and I have felt less nauseous, but I still feel bloated and have some pain and pressure. Any ideas?

In College I had food poisoning for two weeks straight. Full gamut of symptoms, diarrhea, was coming out black like i was bleeding internally. I  had nausea, weak, sweaty... constant upset stomach etc. I didn't have insurance and avoided the doctor all together... fought through it and two weeks later it gradually dissipated. Probably all you have, or a localized flu. If it is really affecting quality of life while your body fights through it I would see a Doctor again. I let mine go too long, missed tests etc. Plus I felt like crap and I wouldn't want to go through that again. Good Luck. :)

Some flu's and virus' do last a while. If it persists and you really are not getting any better,
I would call your doctor again.

SkittishSari,

I've had one for a good month and a half...things that help vary. Lots of gastrological conditions can be persistent and recurring. Can I suggest that the biggest condition is WORRY? Yes worry and anxiety cause a large percentage of stomach ailments.

Realize that you are fine, that your stomach is working as it should and that with peace, exercise, knowledge and comfort in friends and those of us here on the board you will be fine.

Thanks everyone, especially to Beastclouds- that was really uplifting. :)

I'm gonna do a new post, because I actually went back to the doc and got diagnosed with an ulcer. :(
