I woke up this morning with non-stop watery "D".  I have vomited once and I am so naseous to my stomach!  I keep getting stomach pains and a really bad one right in the middle of my stomach, just above the navel area, and it hurts so bad I about double over!  I am so tired and I go from sweating to freezing. 
Also, my TMJ was really bad yesterday and the day before so I broke down and took ibuprofen.  Think this could be from that?
Thanks everyone!

There is a lot of tummy flu making the rounds. And in listening to people who have had it recently, it does include awful gut pain as well as nausea and D. However, ibuprofen does a real number on my tummy, so I don't take it anymore. And I only have to take it a couple of times to really mess my guts up.

I would say if your symptoms persist for another day, you may want to give your doctor a call.

I agree with Squattie.  If it continues you need to see a physician as you do not want to risk dehydration.  It sounds pretty intense right now but you did not say how many Ibuprofen you took.

Please take care.

Thanks everyone.  I believe over the past couple of days, I took about 5 ibuprofen in all.  None today!

You have the same thing I do....I got up early this morning to go to work & was in the bathroom 5 times within the first hour after waking with liquid stool and really bad burning and pain above my navel...I think it is going around.  I am going to stay on liquids today...I need to get back to work tomorrow!
