Is it possible to have a stomach virus without vomiting or diarrhea?

Every so often I experience nausea, fatigue, and stomach pain as if I had a stomach virus--could this just be the way my body expresses the Norovirus?

Yes, a person can have a gastointestinal virus without vomiting or diarrhea, but those symptoms are typically the things you get. If you had this virus before or a similar virus, you may only have a mild infection with nausea.  You cannot definitively diagnose a Norovirus by symptoms alone, since everyone responds to a viral infection differently.
