This answer was rated:

I've had a stomach ache and stomach muscles are tight, nausea especially when eating and can't finish meal, pale stool, lot of burping, brief diarrhea and fatigue. Started last Sunday. Missed one day of work this week. May have had an expired Diet Coke. Fairly stressed. What is?


Do you have fever also?

What is your pulse rate?

When did you drink coke?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No fever. Have felt warm over last few days.
Pulse is 90 bpm
Drank diet coke with day old pizza on Sunday afternoon.

This seems that you have got infection what you call as stomach flu most likely from the one day old food.Gastroenteritis is the irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract..This may last from several hours to several days and a prescription medication may be required.Take tab perninorm once a day to stop vomiting & nausea.Take tablet. Acetaminophen.To get relief from burping,take antacid- Gaviscon.It contains alginic acid and sodium bicarbonate. The combination of the alginic acid and bicarbonate will create a a foam barrier which floats on the stomach acid,providing great relief.Also take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.All these are available without a prescription.

If this doesnot help in 24-36 hours or you have any major discomfort,then consult your doctor for the prescription medications.
