You’ll be feeling just fine, and then suddenly the gut-bug backhands you into aches, fevers, headaches, chills, and fluid loss from both ends. This is an extremely uncomfortable illness, but the good news is that commonly it only lasts 24 to 72 hours. That said, just as the common cold or traditional influenza leave phlegm residing in your lungs like squatting microbial indigents for several weeks, of stomach flu, expect your bowel movements to be cattywampus for as long as three weeks.
