I was sick to my stomach, is it something serious?

Hi I was sick to my stomach and throwing up mucus about six times Monday. Tuesday it was better but, still about twice. I went to my Doctor Wed. ans she said that i had a Viral infection and it had to run it’s course. I was better Thursday and started with some ginger Ale and sliced peaches. yesterday i had more peaches. some Chicken & rice soup and a mashed potatoes with a buttered rool. I slept through the night. When I woke up this morning i had to go and throw up again. this time it looked like the soup and other things. Why was i getting better and now this? i am worried that this is something SERIOUS!!

Thanks for the query..

Stomach virus can take about 3-5 days to at times about a week to get resolved..

Can you please tell that:

-Do you have any other symptoms like loose motions, increased body temperature etc?
-Are you also feeling weakness or stomach cramps?
-Did you eat out after which this started?

Please revert back..

It is nothing serious, you should be worried only if this continues for more than 7 days, by then if problem persist you will need to consult your doctor, and regardless of problem persist or not , you have nothing serious
Good Luck

This is normal to happen with viral infections, and in my opinion the cause of returning back to that point is something that has irritated your stomach in sunday night food…
Just stay giving your stomach a gastric rest.. for 4 more days
