Flu/Food Poisioning?

bmcgovern - January 30

I have been sick all week. I have been going diarreah for 6 days now and can barely eat. I have a stuffy nose, coughing, congested head and can't seem to get better. I did go to the drs and gave them a sample and they are testing it to see if i have a virus or ecoli. My quesiton is for any of you have you had this problem and have had it last this long or longer? I do have IBS and the doctor said people with IBS get hit harder. I just am miserable and want it to away.

There is a bad flu poing around that is a cold accompanied by gut issues. It takes about ten days to go away. Hopefully that is all that you have and not ecoli. Hang in there and I hope that you feel better soon.

Sounds like a classic case of the flu to me. E-coli wouldn't give you a stuffy nose and coughing as far as I know. You are just going to have to muscle through. Flues can take a couple of weeks to go away. Take some salt and potassium to replace the electrolytes that you have lost with the diarrhea.

Thank you :) I am waiting on results and am not sure if it was flu and food poisioning cause i ate some chicken from walmart and am not sure if that make me worse. yeah i am going on a week of feeling gross but am just resting and drinking plenty of water and eating soup and staying on a bland diet right now. Oh really sounds like a horrible flu going around and that's prob what i got. It started with a sore throat and then the diarreah came on and today that part has actually either slowed alot or went away which is good but now it's the cold portion. Thank you for your posts :)
