Been a Bit Sick

I actually got sick the other day, something that rarely happens, believe it or not.

Symptoms: Cold hands and feet, mild fever 100.5, nausea, gas, burping, farting, no appetite, chills.

The nausea was so bad that for a while, I was on the verge of vomiting for hours. But that went away. Now most food grosses me out though so I am not eating very much. I’m down to sparkling water and saltines. Had some chicken soup the other day.

About the symptoms: The cold hands and feet are due to the fever. I’m not sure the mechanism. You can look it up on the net but the fever causes the cold extremities.

I assume that the nausea, burping, farting, etc. is all related.

Duration: It’s been not quite two days now, and it’s already getting better, though some foods still taste gross.

My diagnosis: Stomach flu. Alternative diagnosis: Food poisoning, but the presence probably rules that out. Also food poisoning lasts about a day and stomach flu lasts for 1-3 days.
