I have been sick for a week now and can't figure it out.
Last weekend I began having mild stomach virus symptoms. Never felt crampy or nauseated but definitely had the trots and loss of appetite.
This has remained off and on.
Soon a cough, stuffy nose, fever and aches developed.
I stopped by the docs Tuesday, but they just said it's a virus and to treat the fever.
I lived on ibuprofen for about 4 days.
The fever/aches are gone now.
But I still have the occasional trots and I still have this deep, congested, burns-your-stomach-muscles cough.
Do I have two different illnesses? I hate to go whining to the doc again.

Ouch. Does not sound fun, Cil. I have no clue, but I hope you feel better soon.

Ah Cil, sorry for your troubles. My lil guy had the same thing off and on (in daycare) this winter. Doc said it was viral and just to keep hydrated. It's NO fun I know. Wish there was a miracle cure. However, there is NO medicing that could help. Just suffer through. Blech!

I guess I just needed to hear this from somebody else.
I'm used to bouncing back in a day or so and I'm impatient at this point!
Thanks y'all

Oh that's right, you probably have one of those little kid illnesses - or several of them together.

Take care of your stomach. Ibuprofen can eat a hole in it. Have you tried taking Pepto?

I've also found that brown rice or grits with miso, garlic, and ginger settle my stomach when nothing else will. I'm sorry you're sick. Yuck.
