can throwing up mess up your stomach acid?
I recently had the stomach flu for about 2 weeks accompanied by stuffy nose and the like. I threw up a lot and could not really eat much for the last two weeks besides ginger ale and saltine crackers. When i tried to eat chicken and veggies, I would throw up right after. It is better but I still get the throw up feeling after I eat and now ever since throwing up so much and such , I have had a rumbling stomach and uneasy stomach. is this normal? I also am sore on my left rib cage. Could it be from throwing up so much and so hard? One day I threw up 7 times in a matter for ten minutes! Can all that vomiting upset your stomach balance or something? or is my body still trying to get over the stomach flu? i have not returned to eating normally. I am scared to eat now because I feel like I have to throw it up and now I just eat very little, introducing certain foods back slowly. I still have no real appetite either. Should I just eat broth or something? how do I stay hydrated? Sometimes even when I drink water, it makes me feel uneasy and like I am going to throw up still.
Also, I am still rather new to primal living and still need to get a hold of being more 100% in my ways, so I don't have the good immune system and tolerance or ability to not get sick as a lot of the primal peeps have, I'm working on it though! It has also messed up my sleeping as well. Now, I cannot seem to fall asleep until 4am every night. Everything got out of whack since I got this! Is there anything that can help repair my immune system after the stomach flu?

I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.
