Long lasting stomach virus

Has anyone had the stomach virus that is going around. It consists of nausea and diarhea and lasts over two weeks. I am told that is what is going around but I have yet met anyone who has had it.

If you have, how long does this last and what did you do to feel better?

Thanks.

Re: Long lasting stomach virus

Hi...you could start taking a probiotic which will help get the flora of the gut back into balance.

We pick stuff up via hand to mouth....it could be a bug.

One option is to have a stool sample done if there's no improvement...go through your doctor.

I use Natural Factors Protec....3 at night before going to bed (not a full stomach). Another awesome one is Culturelle...but I don't know who would carry it.

Most have to be refrigeraged.....

Check out a nutrition store, see what's available, see what's affordable for you and will fit in your eating schedule.

Hope you feel better soon.
