Could a stomach bug last this long?

Posted , 5 users are following.

4 days ago I developed stomach cramps and diarrhea. I havn't vomitted but feel nauseous on and off. The pain is getting to be constant now and anything I eat intensifies the pain and has me on the toilet for a long time. I have never had a bug last this long. What else can cause this?

    Stomach bugs can last this long.   Try eating very blandly avoiding fruit and anything else that has a laxative effect such as coffee.  Avoid rich, spicy and fatty foods.  Wait a week and if no better after this, see your doctor.

    I had the stomach flu that lasted 3 and a half weeks and it’s still ongoing, but now it’s just slight morning nausea and hopefully it’ll heal within time. Are you eating correctly? Foods like rice, porridge, banana, and apple sauce are good after coming into contact with the stomach bug. Make sure you eat slowly and sip lots of water in small amounts. If the pain gets to be unbearable you should just go to the doctor.
