Ok. This might be long. I went on a trip to Mexico where I got a stomach virus and had diarrhea for almost five days along with a fever, chills and fatigue. I did notice coffe was somehow affecting me. I had it the day before I came down with the virus and at the hotel after my delay, it gave me mild diarrhea again. When I came back my stomach has been very sensitive, about a week and a half ago I noticed I burped a lot after meals, sometimes it'd be hard to let them out. This past Wednesday I ate Waffle House (Texas bacon cheesesteak melt: not that it matters I shouldn't have eaten it) and things have been awful since! I didn't go to bed till around 4 am from the abdominal pain/burning, burping and severe nausea (chills and shaking) but no vomit or diarrhea. I haven't been able to eat much because of the pain and nausea. Another time I didn't go to sleep till 4am bc of the same thing as before, this time I had eaten around 4 spoonfuls of gluten-free, sugar free granola w/ almond milk and blueberries. I've only been able to have some applesauce, some papaya, saltine crackers and ginger tea. Lots of ginger tea. The nausea has taken over much of the other symptoms now. Burping is still happening and burning in the abdominal is still there. WHAT IS GOING ON. I want to eat! I feel like it's only going to get worse since I'm not eating well please help.

Hi. I would suggest starting a good Probiotic to try and restore the flora in your gut. I have read that intestinal and stomach issues take a long time to heal, and with what you've been through it will probably take a long time. Also, try some chicken noodle soup with crackers. This is all I've been able to eat for weeks now that and a few eggs. I won't bore you with my whole story but the doctors believe I have a bacterial infection in my gut. I've been sick for a month now. They put me on Prilosec for the belching, and that helped, then the Probiotic to start healing my gut. Now they have me on a cocktail of two strong antibiotics to kill all the bad bacteria in me. And let me tell you, these are tearing my insides up! Nausea, gas, headache, and body aches. I'm hoping the next seven days pass quickly. I also hope these medicines fix my problem! I wish you the best, I know you must be miserable. Please keep me posted on how you're doing.......I care!
Hi! What probiotic do you take? I've been thinking of starting them.
Have you gone to the doctor about this? This is too long to be a stomach bug. Usually, a stomach virus passes like it wasn't there.
Hello! Yes I have actually, I went on Monday to a Naturopath Dr. He's able to help but it's pretty expensive. I'm unemployed right now and paying $1,112 for the first month is impossible for me. The total bill is $6,674.
Do you think it would be possible for you to get to a gastroenterologist? I went to a Naturopath one time, but she was also expensive. She also wasn't able to do tests such as endoscopies or anything like that... only blood tests which didn't really help much.
Sometimes after an infection your stomach doesn't settle down and IBS is triggered.
i had to do these a couple of times and had to go to a few drs before they knew what was wrong. keep trying to find the answer
Hey! Yes i went to a holistic Dr. And he's able to help but the total bill for that is pretty high. $6,674. And I'd have to pay the first month in order to undergo lab tests.
i would suggest you that you have consult a good doctor because it will be serious to your health thats why you may go to good doctor near by you.
