No vomiting, fever or abdomen cramps today. They all occurred with the flu the last three days. May have strained stomach from all vomiting and forced stool movement. Just real weak and tied today. Not hungry - what should I eat and drink?

Dear,

Sorry for delay in reply.

Good to hear that fever/ abdomen cramps have stopped now.

Your symptoms are suggestive of Viral stomach flu. Usually such symptoms are viral and self limiting in nature.

You should Tab. Tylenol to get relief from body ache. You should eat something containing salt, such as crisps or soup.
You should maintain good standards of hygiene . You should Keep yourself hydrated, and maintain fluid levels.

You should take adequate rest.

At this time, you need to replenish your electrolytes by taking electrolyte rich fluids like Gatorade and ORS (Oral rehydration Salt).
You should try using the BRAT diet which includes Bananas (good source of potassium), Rice, Applesauce and toast.

If you get repeated episodes of blood mixed with stool, than it should be checked by your doctor.

Most likely, such symptoms would improve by its own in next 3-4 days.

Hope this helped
