A mysterious stomach bug is going around. About 275 people across the nation have fallen prey to cyclospora, but so far only one of those cases is in Illinois and that was near Springfield. Doctors aren’t exactly sure what’s causing the bug but they say it’s a food-born outbreak often linked to fresh fruits and veggies.
Symptoms include stomach pain, diarrhea, and sometimes weight loss, bloating, and fatigue. It can be treated with a simple antibiotic.
