Should I go to Doctors?

Nausea, headaches, stomach pains, dreadful poos, aching all over, so bad I can't sleep. Am really sick of it now, and it's not really getting better. Paracetamol is having no effect either...

yes you should go to the doctor asap

What could it be other than a virus?

severe food poisoning?

But I've not been sick. Just feel it.

I had campylobacter food poisoning which was awful, but didnt vomit once. Definitely see the doc, they can at least send a sample off for testing.

I've had diorreah that comes and goes. It isn't constant.

I ended up being sent to hospital and having an endoscopy after having d&v with other similar symptoms to yourself. The d&v had caused inflamation of the stomach lining and they were concerned I had the helicobacter pylori virus that causes ulcers. luckily all clear on that.

I have to take pills though at the moment to calm my stomach lining.

...but yes, go to the GPs smile

Sounds like campylobacter to me. GP as soon as.
