    NASTY bugs are on the rise once again this winter so it's important you know what to look out for. Sometimes referred to as the 'winter vomiting bug', norovirus is a highly infectious - and unpleasant - viral illness. 1Credit: Getty Images Those who are unlucky enough to suffer it will usually experience vomiting and or diarrhoea. As kids went back to school earlier this year, it's important to look out for norovirus as it's more common in the winter months and outbreaks can occur in school settings. In an update from the NHS on January 7, it was found that almost 3,000 critical care and general acute beds had been closed due to Covid or norovirus. But the most recent data from the UK Health Security Agency shows that norovirus cases remain lower than the five year average. / norovirusSMOKING GUN I was told I had chest infection by GP four times - but I have lung cancerBUG BEAR From ticks to spiders… 11 pics of common bug bites & how to work out what got you With Covid...

Not wanting to worry her housemates, Lucy suffered in silence while the pain in her stomach was “secretly becoming unbearable”.  read more on crohn's diseaseCHRONIC CONDITION What is...
    SCHOOLS and care homes have reported a rising number of norovirus cases, as kids head back to the classroom. Cases of virus, sometimes know as the winter vomiting bug, are 49 per cent higher that what is expected of this time of year. 1Norovirus symptoms usually include diarrhoea, vomiting, tummy ache and a high temperatureCredit: Getty - Contributor The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) reported 279 outbreaks between the 1 August and 22 August.

    BROCK LESNAR has revealed his most horrific moment inside the ring was when The Big Show “exploded with diarrhoea” all over him. The wrestling legend, 45, currently performs on SmackDown and once headlined some of UFC's biggest MMA fight nights. 1 Brock Lesnar has revealed the horrifying moment Big Show 'exploded with diarrhoea' all over himCredit: WWE “The Beast” has never been one to give much away publicly, preferring instead to let his “Official Advocate” Paul Heyman do his talking instead. But WWE fans were given a treat as Lesnar took part in a rare interview about his career with Rod Pedersen. And he had listeners in hysterics as he recalled a battle with the ginormous 7ft tall, 500lbs super heavyweight Big Show. The horrifying event occurred in the early 2000s after the ever-professional Big Show had decided to still compete despite suffering food poisoning. And Lesnar learned the hard way that it’s not a good idea to slam a giant with a bad belly. Pedersen said: “Before long he was doing 300 shows per year around the globe and...
    Who doesn’t need a holiday, right? But in the excitement to get away from it all, sometimes we can forget to take good care of ourselves — including our gut — and this can be the very thing that undermines our break. And there’s something particularly joyless about coming down with an illness when you’re on holiday. Problems can start on the flight itself — if air travel leaves you feeling uncomfortably bloated or constipated, you’re not alone. It’s something that happens to everyone, but it particularly affects the 20 per cent of people who have a sensitive gut, including those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Essentially, as the plane ascends, the atmospheric pressure in the cabin changes and this means any air trapped in your gut expands, causing that all-too-familiar bloating and pain. This air expansion phenomenon is the same reason your ears pop and your water bottle or crisp packet inflates after take-off. Who doesn’t need a holiday, right? But in the excitement to get away from it all, sometimes we can forget to take good care of...
    HEALTH officials are racing to contain an Ebola-like disease with 90 per cent mortality. Called the Marburg virus, it causes those struck to bleed to death. 1Close up of the Marburg virusCredit: Getty - Contributor The World Health Organization said Ghana has reported two possible cases of the Marburg virus disease. The two patients, who sadly died, had been taken to a local hospital with symptoms including diarrhoea, fever, nausea and vomiting. If confirmed, it would mark the first-ever such infections in the West African country. Preliminary findings from blood samples for the two cases were positive for Marburg virus, but have been sent to another lab for confirmation.  Read more on world health WEATHER WARNING Urgent warning over little known killer that ‘soars 70%’ in heatwavesMEATY ISSUE Urgent warning over traces of deadly superbug found in supermarket meat The Ghana Health Service said no new cases have been reported since the two samples were taken two weeks ago, but that 34 people who had contact with the cases are in quarantine.  The WHO said: "Preparations for a possible outbreak...
    IF you're struggling with diarrhoea then food is probably the last thing on your mind. The condition is nothing to worry about and affects most people from time to time. 1Having diarrhoea can be uncomfortable, but if you can, it's advised that you try and eat a littleCredit: Getty - Contributor At some point though, you're going to be lacking in energy and experts agree that you should eat solid food as soon as you feel able to.

    HOT weather can be lovely, but at times it get pretty uncomfortable, especially when it's really humid. But can it give you diarrhoea? Here's all you need to know. Can hot weather cause diarrhoea? If you've had diarrhoea during the warm summer months, you may be wondering whether it's caused long days of hot sunshine. It may simply be a coincidence, though it could point to a more serious health condition, or mean that the weather is causing other issues to flare up. Extended exposure to hot weather increases the risk of inflammatory bowel disease issues, as well as the risk of outbreaks of infectious gastroenteritis, the Metro reported. According to a Swiss study published in 2013, these issues are both likely to cause diarrhoea for those who suffer them, which may explain the rise in instances of it during heatwaves. 1When the weather's extremely hot, it can have a number of effects on our body, and sunburn is just one of them This isn't the only explanation however, and it's important to check your symptoms as it could...
    THE two most common symptoms in kids hospitalised in the US over the mystery hepatitis outbreak have been revealed. Children who were then rushed to hospital with inflamed livers had vomiting and diarrhoea. 1Children all over the world have been getting sick in the mystery outbreakCredit: Getty The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week used data from Alabama, where the majority of US cases have been found. All of the children who then became seriously ill were generally healthy, with no immune system issues. While the most common signs were vomiting and diarrhoea, many children also had upper respiratory symptoms - like runny nose, sneezing, sore throat. Most of them had enlarged livers, jaundice and yellowing in the eyes.

The illness has so far been identified in nearly 230 children, including 145 in the UK. 1UK cases of the mystery hepatitis are predominantly in children under 5 years old who showed initial symptoms of diarrhoea and nausea. Symptoms of hepatitis later developed, such as jaundiceCredit: Getty - Contributor British health officials said the odds of a child developing hepatitis remains “extremely low”, but parents should know the symptoms. According to the WHO, the majority of the cases have appeared in Europe. It noted an "unexpected significant increase" in cases among young, previously healthy children in the UK.

    EXPERTS have warned staying away from work or school is vital if you are suffering symptoms of norovirus. Cases of the highly contagious tummy bug have been rising in recent weeks, according to the UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA). 1A stomach bug might cause a high temperatureCredit: Getty - Contributor The “winter vomiting bug” can leave a person unwell for around two days. It causes vomiting and diarrhoea, and sometimes a high temperature or headaches. Data show that despite norovirus sparking more outbreaks, it is generally circulating at levels lower than expected.

    OFFICIALS have warned of outbreaks of Listeria, a bug that causes vomiting and diarrhoea. Listeriosis is particularly dangerous for pregnant women, people with health conditions or on immunosuppressant medication and those over 65. 1Listeriosis causes vomiting, diarrhoea, and flu-like symptomsCredit: Getty - Contributor A surge in cases has now been linked to smoked fish, with experts urging people to take care preparing it. Six cases of listeriosis have been reported since the start of the year, which is the same counted in 2020 and 2021 combined. But in 2019, there were 142 confirmed cases in England and Wales. The majority of the 12 cases since 2020, in England and Scotland, had reported eating smoked fish, a statement from The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said. At risk groups Professor Saheer Gharbia, Interim Deputy Director Gastrointestinal Infections and Food Safety (One Health) at The UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA), said: “Listeria infection in most people is usually either unnoticed or may cause very mild gastrointestinal illness.  “However, it can have more serious consequences for some people, particularly those with pre-existing health...
    Gay and bisexual men were today warned about the rapid spread of a superbug that is being spread through sex. UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) bosses have spotted a huge spike in cases of an 'extremely' antibiotic-resistant version of shigella sonnei.  The gut infection can cause diarrhoea, stomach cramps and a fever. Some patients will need to be hospitalised.  Forty-seven cases of the infection were reported in the four months from September to December. For comparison, just 16 were logged over the previous 17 months, from April 2020 to August 2021.  Shigella is endemic in England, and triggers thousands of infections each year.  Health chiefs have been tracking the particular strain that has prompted the warning since 2018. Effective treatment options are 'limited' for the strain, the UKHSA warned today.

    THE Omicron variant is bringing up a number of unusual symptoms as it spreads across the UK – one of those could be a nasty case of diarrhoea. With previous coronavirus strains like Delta, the symptoms were generally easier to identity such as a continuous cough, fever and a loss of taste and smell. 3The US CDC has said diarrhoea could be a symptom of OmicronCredit: Getty - Contributor Omicron though has been harder to identify as it has been found to blend in with other symptoms of seasonal illnesses such as flu or the common cold. The variant has also caused other concerns due to its high transmission rate. The Center for Disease Control (CDC), based in the US, has now said people with Covid can have “a wide range of symptoms”. This can range from a slightly blocked nose to breathing difficulties, with the latter needing urgent medical attention.

    LIONEL MESSI missed Paris Saint-Germain training on Tuesday with nasty diarrhoea and vomit-inducing bug gastroenteritis. It came after the Argentine legend scooped his record seventh Ballon d'Or at the swanky ceremony on Monday night. 1Seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi has been struck down with a nasty stomach bug which caused him to miss PSG training on TuesdayCredit: EPA PSG wrote on their website on Tuesday: "Lionel Messi and Leandro Paredes missed out on training today due to symptoms of gastroenteritis. "A point will be made tomorrow morning." Messi scooped consecutive Golden Balls having picked up the gong in 2019 - the last time it was awarded. But not everyone was convinced he should have won it ahead of Bayern Munich's goal machine Robert Lewandowski. Messi's hardly set the world alight since joining PSG from Barcelona this summer - leaving several of football's elite questioning the decision to hand him the prestigious gong.

    WATER supplies for up to 400 postcodes could be contaminated with E. coli. Hundreds of homes in Surrey may be affected by the dangerous bacteria - with it potentially in their drinking water. 1Homes in Redhill, Oxted, Limpsfield, and Godstone are all thought to be affectedCredit: Getty - Contributor The worrying problem was found during routine tests, SES Water said. Teams are now working around the clock to investigate and make sure all supplies have no trace of E. coli. Homes in Redhill, Oxted, Limpsfield, and Godstone are all thought to be affected. Residents in those spots have been told to boil their tap water to ensure it is safe to drink. The bacteria usually lives in the intestines of healthy people and animals. It is usually harmless or only causes mild diarrhoea, but some strains can cause a more serious illness. Patients who suffer with the more dangerous strains can suffer with severe stomach cramps, bloody diarrhoea and vomiting. A statement from SES Water said: "We are supporting our most vulnerable customers as a priority. "We are very sorry...
    THINK food poisoning and the culprit that springs to mind is most likely raw chicken. Earlier this year, one person died and more than 200 children were poisoned by salmonella linked to breaded chicken nuggets and goujons. 5Astoria Jones suffered a fever, hot and cold sweats, sickness and diarrhoea because of salmonella poisoning 5Athina England was unable to keep fluids down for three torturous days But the blame for the 2.4million cases of foodborne illness that occur every year in the UK does not lie solely with our favourite poultry. The truth is, salmonella and other foodborne bugs can be found all over. Just last month, 176 people fell ill and 12 were hospitalised after tucking into a bad batch of pork scratchings. In April, the Food Standards Agency investigated 99 cases of salmonella infection linked to melons, with galia, cantaloupe and honeydew varieties in the spotlight. Last year, more than 120 people were struck by the bug after eating Brazil nuts. In 2018, scientists at Aston University in Birmingham said any picnic food can pose a risk, and...

    A strain of coronavirus that has been infecting pigs in China since 2016 — causing them severe diarrhoea and vomiting — could spread to humans, a study has warned. The strain — 'swine acute diarrhoea syndrome coronavirus', or SADS-CoV — is thought to have come from bats, and has been concerning the livestock industry. It is most dangerous to piglets. A wider outbreak of SADS-CoV could cause severe economic damage in those countries that rely on pork production and sales. The US, for example, was the world's third largest producer of pork last year — and the industry has previously been hurt by another swine coronavirus in 2012. Researchers from North Carolina have now shown that SADS-CoV can infect and replicate itself within human airway, liver and intestinal cells.  A strain of coronavirus that has been infecting pigs in China since 2016 — causing diarrhoea and vomiting — may spread to humans. Pictured, a pig on a Chinese farm (stock image) SADS-CoV belongs to the same family of viruses as SARS-CoV-2 — the agent behind the COVID-19 pandemic — but is in a...
    Google searches for symptoms such as diarrhoea and abdominal pain could act as an early warning for a coronavirus outbreak, a study has revealed. Academics found there was a surge in coronavirus cases roughly three to four weeks after a spike in online searches for the symptoms. In New York, one of 15 regions examined in the study, searches for 'diarrhoea' almost doubled three weeks before the city's cases of Covid-19 soared. The NHS does not currently recognise diarrhoea as being a tell-tale sign of Covid-19, contradicting their colleagues in the US.  It says only a fever, a new cough and a loss of taste and smell are symptoms of the virus, meaning thousands of Britons who don't experience those effects may fail to self-isolate and get tested during the early stages of their infection. Scientists have already called for diarrhoea to be added to the list of symptoms for children in Britain, after their ability to spot the disease in youngsters rose from 76 to 97 per cent when it was included in the symptoms list.  Diarrhoea could...
