Yes, unfortunately it is the flu, we have all had it here in this area and we had flu shots as well, it is very nasty and very contagious!. You want to take gas-x as it will make you very gassy, and immodium for the diarrhea so you don't dehydrate!. Meanwhile don't eat anything until your stomach begins to feel better!. Sip plain hot tea or with some honey in it, or flat ginger ale ( let it sit out to kill the bubbles)!. When your stomach feels better try applesauce ( helps regulate the diarrhea), and follow the BRAT diet - broth or bananas, rice, applesauce, tea or toast!. NO dairy, nothing fatty or sugary!. Canned fruit helped me and also hardboiled eggs, saltine crackers, italian or french bread ( fat free), oatmeal mixed with applesauce, all stayed down!. Eat very small amounts and take a long time to eat, monitor how your stomach feels etc!. and rest!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
