Oh man... Thought I had a mild cold and was getting better. Checking out arfcom and my teeth started to chatter. Temp over 101. From what I can tell there are two versions. I had the one with out the gastro 'issues'. Took about three days until I felt human again. I'd think you should be better after five days if it is a 'bug'. I'd consider calling an MD after a week.

Do you have an undeniable urge to shit on your car windshield? If not, then it's not bird flu

A bunch of people in Houston were passing around some respiratory junk last month
some people were getting well in a day or two, some came back from the doctor throwing
around terms like "possibly bronchitis" and taking three weeks on meds to get better
(with stories about pharmacies being out of the drugs because of large numbers infected)

All the people around me have gotten well though, except for one.........

I have been sick as a dog with flu symptoms since Wednesday night. I took thursday and friday off from work. I couldn't talk right and felt like shit. Lots of sneezing, coughing, aching, fatigue, runny nose, closed sinuses, and general feeling of zombieness (please don't shoot me! I have guns too!).

stomach flu

Keyboard clap. It's getting to be a common malady these days. You get it by using a keyboard that some infected person used before you, then touching your johnson.

Honest! Lawdog told me so, and he wouldn't lie!

Rotavirus, like the flu only worse. Had me throwing up for 2 1/2 days every hour or so non stop. Nasty stuff. Finally had to get a shot to stop the vomiting and an IV to rehydrate. Wanted to put me in the hospital but as stubborn as I am I said ok, then went home and went back to bed for a couple more days.

Allergies are an illness to me.. I NEVER succumbed to them until a couple months ago. Yesterday they were pretty successfully kicking my ass

On MLK day I spent about a day puking my guts out. Ate a sandwich at my sisters house at 1100 and felt fine. Got home, started puking. Well, 12 hours of puking really. After about 8 hours I, um, took a pill for the puking and it went away as long as the pill was working. I managed to lose a couple pounds in a day, and couldn't keep anything down.

The next morning I got tired and weak walking from the couch to the kitchen. I was shocked at how quickly a loss of liquids and stuff could take you down. Never happened before.


Plus I've got my usual allergies. You learn to just deal with those.

Stomach virus going around here.

Squirts, some vomiting, squirts.....no appetite and a case of fever.

I caught it, my wife and my 5 month old boy. His pedi Dr. said that she has had tons of kids in her office with the same thing. My dad who is a gastro Dr. said that he too has had numerous patients with the same symptoms.

I started getting something Friday, it was a little worse Saturday, and I couldn't do anything Sunday. Monday I felt better but not great, and today I feel OK except for a runny nose and burning sinuses.

this thread got irritatingly stupid after the third or fourth horrible virus or disease was named. Idiots @!!!
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 10:59:34 AM EDT
There are several moderate flu strain viruses making tha annual flu circuit and there are a few gastro-intestinal viruses going around. Just like every year, they crop up in the fall and then just as things wind down people go around the country for the holidays and take them to the relatives and bring back the new ones.

I heard its Blue. Someone else said it was Captain Trips. I even heard someone call it Tube Neck.

No worries. Its not fatal. Plus, there's a shot available for it, should be out early next week.

My 10 year old son threw up last night, and this morning, and I have some body aches. I think my son has the flu.

Me too, it really started Sunday and then hit me Monday. I'm still not all the way over it.
