Stomach Pain Flu Symptoms

What are the immediate symptoms of a stomach flu?

I woke up this morning with huge muscle pain around my stomach and I had a really hard time walking, sitting and even breathing a little..it’s been a couple of hours since it started and I don’t know if it’s a stomach flu since I never had one..

I am also emetophob so I really hope it is not a stomach flu..:(

“What are the immediate symptoms of a stomach flu?” — None. Flu is a respiratory infection.

The most common GI ailment is viral gastroenteritis. The main symptoms are vomiting & watery diarrhea. There can also be a headache, abdominal cramps and pain (not in the stomach, in the abdomen) and fever. Pain can make one reluctant to breathe deeply but it doesn’t actually restrict breathing.

“I don’t know if it’s a stomach flu since I never had one..” — And you never will have one.

“I am also emetophob so I really hope it is not a stomach flu..:(” — An emetophobe is one with an intense and irrational fear of and anxiety related to vomiting. An intense dislike of vomiting isn’t the same thing. This term is used too freely. But at least you don’t have to worry about having “stomach flu”.

If all you have is abdominal pain, it’s likely not gastroenteritis. What makes you believe the pain is muscular? Is your abdomen tender when you touch it? Give your doctor a call and find out if you need to be seen. There’s no way you can be diagnosed online and you need to be examined.

Abdominal Pain Swine Flu

Do I have Swine Flu or Parasites?

I recently went to Mexico, specifically I went on July 18 and came back the 25th. Yesterday I started to get a fever. That fever carried over to today. Now I have minor abdominal pains and diahrrea. Do I have swine flu or parasites. I did go swimming in a famous swamp in mexico. I did get many mosquito bites and some were bleeding. I believe that it may be parasites that got in through the open mosquito bites.

You NEED to go see a doc, this is too severe to ignore. I personally can not tell you which of the two it is but you really need to go see a doctor before your symptoms worsen, I wish you the best of luck :]
