Suffer from nausea and loose stools. Stomach viral infection?
A week ago I had nausea and thought I was on the cusp of a flu bug so I took a tami-flu. I vomited two hours later. No fever, chills or aches. The next am I took more tami flu and gradually felt better that am. However, since then I continue to have periodic stomach rumbling, loose bowels and very odorous gas on and off each day. I am a 68 year old woman. My stools are fairly light in color. My diet of late has been light meals, yogurt, soup, not a lot of roughage since this started. Does this sound like a mild tummy virus?
Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described symptoms, there appears to be possibility of Acute viral gastroenteritis.
Presence of watery diarrhea, abdominal discomfort suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for complete blood count, serum electrolytes, and renal function test.
You should take complete antibiotic therapy, probiotics, antispasmodics.
You should maintain your hydration by taking potassium rich supplements.
Avoid milk and all milk related products such as cheese and butter.
