It was 3 days for me. I just drank loads of water and made some mint tea to help with the cramps. I wanted lucozade but they only have the stuff with sweeteners and I can't drink it. Hope you feel better soon

Feeling so much better today, although still not eating as much as usual & for some reason I’ve gone right off alcohol. I was trying to cut down on my wine intake!
If DD & DH were going to get it, would it have happened by now? You’re infectious for a little while beforehand, aren’t you? Now I think back, I wasn’t feeling very well at the beginning of last week so that was probably building up to it.
I must admit I’m not as careful as some eg using separate towels etc, but I bleached the loo until I ran out & washed my hands loads.

Had it a few times over the last few years (work in a hospital building tho) it's grim, I recall vomiting in the sink whilst sitting on the toilet as it was Coming from both ends at the same time 🤢🤮 - but passes quickly -
Drink whatever sips of water you can - small
Sips and get sleep -
If you can keep to one bathroom and other family use a Different bathroom and wash all things you come in contact with and bleach the loo and sink if you're able to whenever you can - ventilate too if you can to get the bugs out of
The house

Not yet, but it gets me every year.

There is nothing worse. Hope that you feel better soon.

My kids had it within 30 minutes of each other last week. I thought Dh and I would get it but we escaped. Since having it before though I am religious about hand washing and cover my face when clearing up children's puke. It's a really horrible little virus that has evolved to be as explosive as possible to spread itself, hence the sudden vomiting. When I had it before i thought I was dying.

Not as bad as food poisoning though.

“Doesn’t sound like the norovirus, just sounds like a stomach bug”

Noro is a stomach bug. One of the most common. confused

Wondering why some posts don’t get any responses

Doesn’t sound like the norovirus, just sounds like a stomach bug.

I’m usually lucky & escape tummy bugs but there’s so much about at the moment & I fell ill on Friday night. I really think I have never felt so bad in my life. The stomach cramps alone are ridiculous! Luckily I was only sick once but everything else is horrendous. I think DD has had a milder version of this already but now hoping DH doesn’t get it. If you have it/have had it you have my sympathies. Will I start to feel a bit more human soon? I know it’s partly because I haven’t eaten since Friday lunchtime. Might risk a slice of dry toast today
