When your stomach starts hurting, it’s important to understand the cause of why it’s hurting. Some cases of abdominal pain are caused by a virus. It is commonly referred to as the”stomach flu”, but that is inaccurate since it’s not related to influenza. The correct medical name is “gastroenteritis.”
Gastroenteritis or Stomach Bug Urgent Care Omaha & Bellevue, NE
Gastroenteritis usually causes problems one-to-two days after exposure to the virus. Symptoms include constipation or diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, fever and nausea.
Other causes of abdominal pain include food poisoning, irritable bowel syndrome, problems with internal organs, and more. Many of these issues share similar symptoms to gastroenteritis, so it is important to discuss your symptoms with your medical provider if you have persistent abdominal pain.

In treating a “stomach bug” it is important to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and/or sports drinks. Eating a bland diet of things like rice, bananas, and crackers can also help settle your stomach until you are feeling better. Get plenty of rest, and, if needed, taking over-the-counter pain relievers, such as Tylenol or ibuprofen, can also help.
