    Thank you for this lovely article, I got diarrhea & started vomiting but I didn’t know what’s wrong with me until I got a very bad back pain, I googled and I came across your article which made me understand why am I getting a back pain & that what I have is a stomach flu, so I’ll take on your suggestion & start hydrating myself with plenty of water, I hope I feel better, Thanks again ❤️

    Very helpful, the lower back pain is very intense, I am drinking electrolytes and eating toast and some oatmeal. Dr. says I have a stomach virus. The diarrhea and vomiting stopped after the second day but still have the back pain. Also drinking Chicken Bone Broth for protein.

    • Hi Nan,
      you are doing the smart thing by including your doctor as part of your recovery regiment. I think this will ensure that you find the answer to what’s causing your lower back pain. I am sure your attitude to be proactive in dealing with your condition combined with your doctor’s help will speed up your recovery. I wish you the best.

    Hi , I am feeling pained in my upper stomach and back pain for 3 days, but no diarrhea and other symptoms. Is this gastroentritis? Thank you.

    • Hi Kaye,
      I would check with your doctor because the pain you are describing, with no diarrhea, may indicate pancreatitis. I think extensive questioning and some testing by your doctor will shed light as to the exact cause of your pain. Years ago I was in a car accident and thank God I came out of it okay. However for the first week I experienced stomach and upper back pain. It turned out, after seeing the doctor, that it was just the strain of my body being twisted in a manner it wasn’t used to. By the second week the pain was gone. So, I urge you, if the pain persists, to see your doctor. I wish you all the best.

    I have gastro was vomiting every 30 mins and diarrhea, last night my eyes felt like they were rolling in the back of my head, couldn’t focus on anything. Now i have lower back pain and also pain in legs and feel so lethargic.

    • Hello Matt,

      I’m so sorry you’re experiencing gastroenteritis. AS I said, the pain from the gastrointestinal tract could radiate tо the other areas. Excessive buildup оf gas that often accompanies gastroenteritis, mау аlѕо bе the underlying cause оf bасk pain. You’re feeling lethargic because you have lost a lot of fluids due to the diarrhea. You should hydrate yourself with plenty of water, and then try coating your stomach by eating a banana. Staying hydrated is the key. If you get tired of water you can try something like Gatorade. If you get hungry maybe try something like chicken soup along with the banana. I hope this helps.
