About a week ago I came down with a fever that lasted for 3 days, along with nasal congestion, occasional cough, extreme chills, (along with the fever) Nausea with stomach pain (across the top of abdomen) and unable to eat or drink due to the stomach problems. H1N1 seems to be the hot topic in my area and so at first I assumed that it was just my turn. Now, a week later all the symptoms are gone except this stomach pain, nausea coming and going, and loss of apetite. I'm also have bright yellow diarrhea.
The stomach pain is all the way across the top of my abdomen, the area above my belly button and below my sternum. This area also seems to be a little distended. I have also had occasional flank & lower back pain in the last two days.
After the initial illness I focused on making sure I am at least well hydrated & am urinating okay.
I should also mention that although I felt nauseas I was unable to vomit. (at times I wanted to!!)
Could this have been H1N1, or similar virus going around or is it something else altogether? The stomach pain is giving me concern!! Please advise!!
