Sickness going around where you live?

It's been all through my house! 24-48 hours of throwing up and diarrhea. No fever.

What is this thing?! Anyone else have this going around their area?

Really? It's a stomach virus - as common as the common cold. We used to get it here a few times a year when the kids were little, but we're down to once or twice a year now. I think there is a new one - this time around, I got it - I've been immune for years!

It's Norovirus. Both my children have had it twice since Christmas. The first time was vomiting, and the second was extreme stomach cramps without all the other stuff. The nurse said the kids could have just vomiting, just diarrhea, just a fever, just stomach cramps, or any combination of the above. She also said because it only take 20 molecules to inhale and lives on surfaces for several weeks it can be contracted several times. I just had the stomach cramps the last two days. I thought I was going to wind up in the hospital they hurt so bad. I teach preschool and have had several kids out with this. Quite a few of the younger kids have been hospitalized for up to a week.

Our house started with DD 1 vomiting on Thursday followed by me on Friday then DS Saturday. The only person left is my husband.

DD was so sick could barely hold her head up yesterday. The doc was able to give her a phenergan shot which help her a lot.

It has been a miserable weekend.

Thanks for the replies. Now I am really bummed because based on replies it looks like we could all get it again soon! Ugh!

Lots of people sick around here..something like 118 kids were out of school with it last week. My stepdaughter is at the ER right now with her 5 year old..2 days worth of high fever, not eating, not drinking much. They have her on an IV now..and just went in and told her that it was Type B influenza, and they may be keeping her overnite

Exactly what I had about 10 days ago. Stomach pain beyond belief...and nausea. No throwing-up or going at the other end, but still got dehydrated. Couldn't intake fluid or food for 36 hours, because stomach pain was so bad.

I read somewhere that with this virus, once you had it, you have immunity to it for about 14 weeks. Doesn't sound like that is accurate, from reading some of the posts here.

Two weeks ago my DH has the vom/diar (no fever) for about 24 hrs. A week later my DS had vom/fever for about 12 hours and a few days after that DD had vom/fever for about 8 hours. Luckily it left as quickly as it came and yeah for me that I haven't gotten it. I had heard from the school nurse a week ago that it was really going thru their school.

Did you get confirmation of this from cultures being tested? I ask because noro seems to be the new catch phrase for every garden variety stomach virus.

Op, it sounds like you had a stomach virus go through your house. Hope everyone is better.

There is also something going around that causes upper respiratory problems, like congestion and coughing and sneezing. I have had if for 3 weeks now, and going into the 4th.

Granddaughter still in the hospital. They kept her overnite, said maybe up to a week. They said she's the first case of type "B" influenza in the pediatric unit, whatever that type is. She's dehydrated, had a temp of 103..it broke overnite, but went back up again this morning. She's not eating, not drinking, not a good sign in a 5 year old! Hope everyone feels better soon!

My 8 year old son and I had type B influenza over Thanksgiving and we each ran a fever for 6 days, my sons was as high as 104 and I was up to 103. Goods thing they have your granddaughter on fluids, that will help keep her hydrated as the flu runs its course. Hope she starts feeling better soon, my cough lingered for 6 weeks afterward
