No Hunger nor Appetite for 3 Days

Posted , 2 users are following.

About 4 days ago, I got a 24 hour stomach bug that had been going around where I live. Obviously, I didn't eat a lot during. However, I've found it very challenging to eat ever since. I am a 6 foot, 190 pound teenager who has never had a problem with my appetite. Is this just an aftershock of the stomach bug?

    I just had a stomach bug about 2 weeks ago. I'm guessing it was the very common norovirus going around. Before I got sick, I was 5,7 at 118 pounds. I felt better within 3 days, but I could not eat anything until day 7. By than, I weighed 111. I'm now trying to gain it back. I would say to give it another few days. But if it continues after that, than perhaps you should see a doctor. My friend just had a stomach bug too, only his lasted 3 weeks, so his doctor gave him an antibiotic, which made him fin ally feel better. It could be a pretty long lasting virus, depending on how strong your immune system is.
