    Flu going around

    My grandson got a bug last Friday and was very sick for 24 hrs. Yesterday (monday) I got it and it is very bad. Kick my butt. Be careful

    The flu shot covers the chest/head type cold, not the intestinal type issues. If it last 24 hours, they are talking gastro type issues. The gastro one is happening around here also..and it is a rough one.

    I see I wasn't the only one sick this past weekend! I, too, had the intestinal flu. Almost went to the hospital I felt so bad.

    Sounds likes what my Husband had. He is feeling better now.
    He was sick for a few days.

    So far, I haven't shown any symptoms yet.

    I got my flu shot before April at the VA clinic in Tampa Fl.I had an appointment at the endocrinology clinic for blood work and Dr. visit to check levels . I had thyroid cancer in 1999 and my thyroid gland was removed because a cancerous tumor the size of a softball was the reason . It was caught before it had spread out of the gland.

    This stomach bug is really wicked. I had it, then husband and grandson. For weeks after I would still get a wave of nausea wash over me a few times a day. I hope you feel better soon.

    Same here. My 5 year old and I both got it a couple weeks ago.
    We had to cancel our whole vacation that was planned for spring break from school.
    We were both sick for 7 days. Every symptom including fevers up to 103.8, headache, earaches, cough, sneezing, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.
    Called the Dr. twice. They said don't come in, nothing we can do gotta ride it out.

    My son & DDIL had it last month. In their 30's & they were very sick. They had to get meds from doc that helped some. It lasted about 1 &1/2 weeks--at least the worst of it.

    I got hit harder than a board with a stomach and intestinal virus a couple of weeks back. I ended up dropping 15 lbs in 5 days, I couldn't keep water in me. Now it's the slow crawl back to somewhat normal this week, I feel for anyone that gets this I've never been this sick in years! DH said he knew how sick I was when I didn't even open my new issue of McCall's magazine lol
    I hope your back on your feet soon! Why is it so much harder to recover from stuff at our age we're not over the hill yet, although I feel like someone shoved me down the hill

    This website actually has a health map that shows real-time symptom reports from all over the world. You can see where other people are reporting sicknesses (and contribute yourself, if you like). Hope this helps!
