  • Millions in the U.S. get the stomach flu every year. Symptoms include watery diarrhea, stomach cramps, stomach pain, nausea, repeated vomiting, muscle aches, headaches and a low-grade fever.
  • There is no quick remedy for stomach flu. You often must let it run its course. In the meantime, be sure to stay hydrated, let your stomach settle, ease back into food, get rest and be careful with medications.
  • The stomach flu is contagious. If your family member has stomach flu, avoid getting it yourself by consistently washing your hands, keeping your distance, isolating the sick person, wiping off surfaces, washing clothes and bedding frequently and immunizing infants before they are exposed.
