violent stomach virus going around houston area


I strongly suggest being extra diligent about washing hands and not touching things or people you don't have to. This is the worst I have ever had and I know about 50 other people who have recently got it

..unless, of course, you're looking for that crash diet to shed 10-15 lbs in less than a week.

Where is Mouton? He should be all over this.

Meh just like there are more respiratory things that go around in the winter months (flu, rsv), there are more gastro stuff that goes around in the warmer months. You may have just been lucky to not get it before. Every spring and summer we see way more kids with gastroenteritis come in than we do in the colder months.

Likely the dreaded norovirus.

The known viruses in the genus are all considered to be the strains of a single species called Norwalk virus. The viruses are transmitted by fecally-contaminated food or water; by person-to-person contact; and via aerosolization of the virus and subsequent contamination of surfaces. Noroviruses are the most common cause of viral gastroenteritis in humans, and affect people of all ages.

Guys, what OP said is the true.

I went to Houston on business and woke up in the middle of the night with worst vomiting of my life. I was begging for it to go out the other end. Completely filled up the garbage can, to the top full of my puke. It took me 10 days to get over it completely and people even accused me of faking. Whatever it is, it's legit.

Then I heard from co-workers who had it or know someone who had it. It really is everywhere down there.

Your logic is flawed though. If you get it and you are around other people, then chances are YOU are part of exposing it to a child or elderly person who can get dangerously dehydrated quicker than a normal healthy person.
