Hello!
I have experienced minimal abdominal pain (only after eating) and have vomitted several times. Once upon waking and the other I accredited to the overwhelming feeling of anxiety. I do not have a constant fever, but do have bouts of sudden warmth.
The only thing I am taking right now is Tylenol and/or Aleve.
Expert:  Dr. Nitika replied 9 months ago.
Hi,
Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.

As per your description,vomiting,diarrhea,pain abdomen and low grade fever suggest the possibility of Gastroenteritis.
However as you have been given Celestone injection so it can also cause gastrointestinal upset.
Now main concern is to keep your electrolyte and fluid balance to prevent dehydration.
In my opinion,you need to be seen by your doctor ASAP for some anti-emetic injection and IV fluids.
Body ache,lethargy,weakness can be associated with such fluid and electrolyte loss from vomiting and diarrhea.
If you are not able to keep liquids down then you should visit ER.
Otherwise start Oral rehydration solution.
Take metamucil.
And drink plenty of water.

Thank you so much for your response!

One last query: How long does the medicine from the injection stay in my system?
Expert:  Dr. Nitika replied 9 months ago.

Hi,

Most injections typically take 24-48 hours to take full effect.

And it may take few days to weeks to get out of system depending on the dose. You should consult your doctor for further management ASAP.
