Patient discussion about upset stomach

Q. I’ve been having an upset stomach for the last 2 days, what can it be? I’ve been vomiting and had a fever going on and off, diarrhea, the works… could it be dangerous? What can it be? What can I do to calm it?

A. Man, what you describe can be anything. Most likely you got some sort of bacteria or viral infection. If it doesn’t get better in the next few days go to a Dr.. in the mean while eat rice, avoid vegetables and raw foods and drink a lot of water. And I mean a lot. The biggest problem of vomiting and diarrhea is dehydration. Take care!
