I think I have a stomach bug, help? (graphic!)?





My parents had to leave in the middle of the night for a conference in Delaware, and they said they'd be home in two days, tops. They literally begged me not to have to come home from school for anything, and not to ruin the house. I woke up at 4 o'clock this morning and immediately threw up all over the bed. I spent an hour on the toilet with diarrhea, throwing up into the trashcan. Around 5 o'clock, I crawled back into bed and slept for an hour. I woke up at like 6:30, feeling completely fine except that my stomach hurt a bit. I completely ignored it, because I was really hungry, and ate 12 frozen pancakes and 3 huge glasses of orange juice. At 7:30 I was on the bus, feeling horribly nauseous again. Luckily, (although I was stupid about eating 12 pancakes and 3 glasses of orange juice) I wasn't stupid enough to forget a bag. I grabbed it out of my backpack and immediately began dry-heaving and burping gas. Strangely though, nothing would come out. At that moment my stomach was doing donkey kicks, swirling and feeling like it was getting stabbed by 1,000 knives. The bus stopped and I ran off, straight to the bathroom and locked myself in a stall. I had horrible runny diarrhea for 20 minutes, and threw up for 10, already missing half of first period. I didn't want to have to explain, so I sat on the toilet for the last half hour, passing gas and burping. I went and sat through second period, and third, but after all of fourth period in the bathroom, filling 4 brown paper bags with vomit, and having to flush the toilet 10 times because of extreme diarrhea I decided to go to the nurse, no matter how much it hurt my parents. At our school, you physically had to pass out to be sent home, so the nurse gave me Imodium and sent me back to class. I'm now in 6th period english, on the laptop when I'm supposed to be typing an essay. Is this a stomach bug and should I walk out of school?

    This is EXTREMLY horrible on so many levels.That nurse SHOULD have sent you home after you have been vomiting and having diarrhea.Not only are you miserable but now, you potentially spread the virus to others.Anti diarrheal medication should also NOT be administered to students.It won’t even work with Norwalk virus.You need to let it run its course.That is how the virus is shed.Poor you, next time you are sick, STAY HOME! Not only for your sake but for the sake of others.Noro is HIGHLY contagious and I am more than sure your parents would understand.(Also, never just walk off of the campus lol…you will get in trouble.All you have to do is DEMAND that you be sent home) It will be that nurses fault if there is a noro outbreak at your school.And in the future, if you are sick, don’t eat and drink that much lol.Be sure to keep hydrated and rest as much as possible.Prevention:Norwalk virus(Just remember that hand sanitizers will not kill this virus.House hold cleaners such as Lysol will also not kill you.You must use bleach.)The Norwalk virus causes viral Gastroenteritis which is known as the nasty 24 hour bug that causes explosive and sudden diarrhea and projectile vomiting.Usually non life threating but can cause complications in the very young,elderly and those with compromised immune systems.PREVENTION-Wash your hands before preparing food/eating food and most importantly, TOUCHING YOUR MOUTH/NOSE/EYES.The ONLY way to become infected with this virus is if you ingest the contaminated fecal/vomit particles through your eyes,nose and mouth.It is impossible to “breathe” in the virus BUT possible to become infected by breathing in aerosol “spray” droplets from someone vomiting right next to you.(the droplets settle within minuted but can still infect someone until cleaned with bleach)Even if your whole family breaks out with this virus, you can prevent it by washing your hands for at least 15-20 seconds with warm water and soap.Remember that you are not killing the virus, you are washing it down the drain even if you use an antibacterial soap (which only kills bacteria, not viruses) hand sanitizers are also not successful in killing the virus.If a member of your family comes down with the virus, let them know to wash their hands AFTER a bowel movement and vomiting.To clean infected areas, clean with BLEACH.Clean bathrooms (all infected areas) with a bleach solution as soon as possible and be sure to prevent cross contamination and wash your hands afterwards.Especially children! wipe down all commonly touched objects like door knobs, faucet handles, light switches, toilet flushers etc.People are STILL contagious even after 24 hours after their symptoms settle down so it is always important to wash your hands after the rest room (which you should do anyways!)The key to staying Norwalk virus free is to keep sanitary.Wash your hands after using the bathroom…you could prevent other peoples misery as well as yours!TIPS:Do not share any cups/plates/utensils with an infected person and be sure to wash in a bleach solution to prevent cross contamination with the rest of your family.

    Do not eat saltines or any other solid food.Stay on clear liquids only for the next 24 hours (water, non-caffeinated soft drinks, jello, popsicles, broth), If the vomiting and diarrhea have abated after 24 hours, you can add bananas, rice, applesauce and plain toast to your diet along with the clear liquids. If things are ok after that time, you can increase your diet, but avoid greasy/spicy foods and dairy products for a few more days.If the vomiting and diarrhea persist in spite of following a strict clear liquid diet, you need to call your parents. You could become dehydrated which needs medical attention.
