Can the Flu cause Bowel movement problems?
I'm just recently getting over the Flu/Cold (I'm not sure which one I had).. my symptoms consisted of: coughing, sneezing, nasty body aches (muscle pains, especially when i cough), runny nose, headaches, fever, nausea, extreme fatique etc.
My concern is I haven't had ANY bowel movements since I got the Cold/Flu 5 days ago. So yes, for 5 days straight I haven't had any bowel movements. Granted I haven't ate much since I got sick because of loss of appetite but NOT up to the point where i shouldn't have any bowel movements, I'm sure I ate enough to have at least 2 bowel movements by now. Does anyone have any information on this? The only thing that I've been taking as far as meds go are NyQuil Cold and Flu and Tylenol Cold, I doubt those would cause my bowel movement problems tho. Thanks for any information anyone can give.
