Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
Do you have fever?
Where exactly is the stomach pain? Upper, middle or lower abdomen?
Any blood or mucus in stool?
Thank you for your reply.
Have you had fever?
if yes how high?
Are you feeling better than before or it's the same?
Thanks a lot for your input.
Have you tried anything so far?
like some medicine?
Thanks again for your input.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
As per symptoms this doesn't sounds like food poisoning.
It is more likely to be a viral infection (stomach flu).
But don't worry, I will address your question in two aspects; what you can do yourself and what your doctor can do for you. As far as what you can do yourself is concerned in such situations you can take the following measures
over the counter tab Tylenol two tablets thrice daily.
lots of fluids specially Gatorade.
You must keep taking small meals frequently
Not eating anything will make you worse since you need to replace what you are loosing.
eat BRAT diet only
It means Banana, rice, apple sauce and toast.
Tab Pepto Bismol twice daily (it's also OTC)
All these measures will help you.
You can try them and if you feel better in next 24 hours, you can continue them, otherwise visit A & E for further assessment.
But don't worry, nothing is serious and you are going to be OK.
Any question please?
