Has anyone here ever been diagnosed with the Norovirus or do you know anyone that has suffered from this illness? I had some loved ones who were hospitalized this past weekend due to this virus. I have never heard of this virus before but it sounds really awful. Some of the symptoms of this virus are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramping and there are other symptoms a person could have as well. It can not be cured by medication as there is medication for this illness. You need to drink fluids due to being dehydrated. This illness is very contagious and is usually spread by vomit or stool. You need to wash your hands and do other things that will help to prevent getting it and recovering from it. There are various websites that provide you with important information about it and what to do if you get it.

It is definitely is nasty as my parents were pretty sick but they are doing much better now. Thank you for your well wishes. There does seem to be something going around. I am taking medications for sinus infections and other ailments myself. Hope you are doing well.
