Flu symptoms

Tags: Flu

Hello, I have been feeling unwell since Thursday. I had flu symptoms (temperature, nauseas and stomach cramps). I recovered from these symptoms but my stomach craps are still very bad and I still feel nausea. Every time I eat something the troubles start again straight away. Could you please help me?

    Do you need to see a GP quickly?

The answer

Flu is a viral infection affecting many of us, especially in the autumnal- winter season. Apart from fever, muscle aches and generally feeling unwell, stomach cramps as well diarrhea, nausea and vomiting are also flu symptoms. For a healthy person, these symptoms will gradually improve in about a week’s time. However, you may continue to feel tired for a further couple of weeks.

We would suggest that you see your doctor if the symptoms persist. In the meantime, we would recommend rest, a light diet and plenty of fluids.
