Alright, Chase, here’s one based on recent personal experience, and during which I could have used some serious prayers: Gastroenteritis or infectious diarrhea is a medical condition characterized by inflammation (“-itis”) of the gastrointestinal tract that involves both the stomach (“gastro”-) and the small intestine (“entero”-), resulting in some combination of diarrheavomiting, and abdominal pain and cramping.[1]Gastroenteritis has also been referred to as gastro, stomach bug, and stomach virus. Although unrelated to influenza, it has also been called stomach flu and gastric flu.
