gastroenteritis or something else?
I am looking for a little information, although I am taking her to the doctor for something unrelated next week.
Wednesday March 8th, me and my 7 year old daughter both woke up with the stomach bug, violent throwing up and diarrhea for a few hours then all better, just with that bad taste in your mouth and a massive head ache for a couple days after wards. It went around my whole family so I am pretty sure it was gastroenteritis. I kept her home Wednesday Thursday and Friday. She went back to school on the 13th and had perfectly normal stools and was healthy and active for the whole week. Then, out of the blue the evening of March 19th, she threw up her dinner but was fine afterwards and the next few days. This morning out of the blue she threw up and has been throwing up all day and having completely watery diahrrea. It is the kind of thing where she can't figure out which to do sit on the toilet and throw up in the floor or vice versa, poor thing. I myself nor anyone in my family have been sick beyond that first week so I am trying to figure out how only she is getting sick. Any advice or helpful info is appreciated. She has a fairly healthy diet and we limit the amount of junk she eats to one small treat per day, like desert. We haven't changed our eating behaviors at all and she never has been like this before. With the first bug, I ran a slight temperature (100.4 at the highest) but she never did and has not run a temperature with any of these upsets.
