Can an upset stomach be caused by a cold?
*PLEASE READ FIRST* I've had cold symptoms for maybe 2 weeks now. the cold has just been in my throat and chest for the most part, not my nose. I've coughed up a lot of mucus and took mucinex everyday for 1 week, but I have stopped taking it in the past week. I've also had many stomach aches this week, including what I think was diharrea. I'm no stranger to upset stomachs, being part lactose intolerant, but this week, my stomach has just felt so sensitive and bothered. while researching diharrea, I found out it can be caused by bacteria in general, so I thought maybe my cold was causing it. could takin my cold medicine again solve the problem with my stomach?
