There has been a bad stomach virus going around the Northeast, especially Philadelphia. Its been rampant amongst young adults and has been disabling, causing plenty of people to feel so badly that they can’t even work. What are the symptoms? Why is this stomach virus going around the Northeast?
So far, the virus causes nausea and vomiting which last throughout the first 24 hours. Also, it can cause nausea and diarrhea, an interesting combination. Afterwards, you get diffuse aching and pains in your muscles and joints throughout your body which last all of the rest of 24 hours.
Afterwards, you still feel weak for two to three days afterwards as your body recooperates after its losses. The key is to keep drinking fluids, but it doesn’t work well with all the nausea that you are suffering from at the same time.
If you feel better in a couple of days, then that is the key. If not, then you should probably be evaluated by your doctor. It feels awful, like you have the flu, but worse. The aches are debilitating and left me on the couch all day today.
Have you gotten this? Where do you live? Let me know.
