Had the dreaded stomach flu the last two days. Going through the whole family. Lost probably over two gallons of fluid. All I can say is brutal.

Influenza is a virus.

GI upset is typically bacterial in nature.

Doesn't help you much, but figured any thread always benefits from a public service announcement.

This is probably due to the election of a certain BHO

Drink plenty of fluids and buy ammo/guns and call me in the morning.

Im on the downside of it right now.  the last few days have been hell.  No nausea but lots of aches and soreness, fever, chills, sweats, dizziness, lethargy, and an overall desire to die.

My head is still congested and I have some coughing also.  Typical for me around Thanksgiving..  Like clockwork really.

Guy at work had a stomach virus for a week or so, he said he lost 20 lbs (about 10% of his total weight).

Any swelling in the neck?

I had it a week or so ago. It came in 2 stages: The first stage, I was afraid I was going to die. The second stage, I was afraid I WOULDN'T die.

I also got some swelling in the armpit; it went away after 3 days.

ETA It's worse if you have a family.. you have to care for the little ones, too!
