Default I might have gotten the Norwalk/Norovirus

Warning: The below might contain TMI

Today I woke up at 6:10 and I felt like I was about to vomit. So I told my mom that I need her to get up and get me Coca-Cola. She got me it, I drank a few sips, then proceeded to try to lie down. About 5-10 mins later, I was vomiting, followed by diarrhea (which I still have... im at number 6 or 7). Before the cruise I weighed about 145 lbs. after the cruise 150.5 lbs., now I am at 145.5 lbs. I feel really weak and crappy.

According to a Website
What are the signs and symptoms of Norwalk virus infection?


* Nausea
* Vomiting
* Diarrhea
* Stomach cramps
* Severe illness or hospitalization is uncommon. Infected persons usually recover in 2 to 3 days without serious or long-term health effects.

How soon after exposure do symptoms appear?
Symptoms usually appear in 1 to 2 days after swallowing contaminated food or water.

How common is Norwalk virus infection?
Norwalk and Norwalk-like viruses are increasingly being recognized as leading causes of foodborne disease in the United States. However, since no routine diagnostic test is available, the true prevalence is not known. Norwalk and Norwalk-like viruses have been linked to outbreaks of intestinal illness on cruise ships and in communities, camps, schools, institutions, and families.

my brother was sick after our cruise. he went to the doctor, and the doctor said there is a good possibility he has it, but to know for sure he would have to get blood work done. Since there is nothing one can do for this virus, he said it was up to him if he wanted to or not, but it really wasn't worth it, so my brother didn't.

the flu is also going around, so hopefully it is just that, but who knows. Luckily for you, it is usually only serious for the very young, and elderly,

hope you feel better soon! Take it easy!

usually not, just usually get sick for a few days.

It is usually only dangerous for very young, and the elderly.

I think have an infection (e.g. ear infection) is common with this virus.

For most this virus is just like having the flu (well having the flu pretty bad).

being sick sucks!! you feel like crap and then lose weight! well he just got off a cruise so thats ok..but yeah.

alright i found some info on the norwalk virus...

Norwalk virus infection is an intestinal illness that often occurs in outbreaks.
Norwalk and Norwalk-like viruses are increasingly being recognized as leading causes of foodborne disease in the United States.
The viruses are passed in the stool of infected persons. People get infected by swallowing stool-contaminated food or water. Outbreaks in the United States are often linked to raw oysters.
Infected people usually recover in 2 to 3 days without serious or long-term health effects.
To prevent Norwalk virus infection: 1) wash hands with soap and warm water after toilet visits and before preparing or eating food; 2) cook all shellfish thoroughly before eating; 3) wash raw vegetables before eating; and 4) dispose of sewage in a sanitary manner.
