So ive had the d&v bug 3 times (4/5 days at a time) in the last 6 weeks ive had to take time of work which my boss isnt too impressed about.
So I rang the doctor's today to see ask some advice about what will make me better and the receptionist told me theres nothing I can do, just to let it run its course. Its ran its course 2 times before and its back. Anybody know anything to stop it ?
When you have a D&V bug it can make you dairy intolerant so exclude dairy from your diet for a few weeks and see if that helps. Also take a probiotic supplement to restore you gut bacteria. Hope you feel better soon.
When I rang up the receptionist asked me what was wrong so I told her. I was told I wouldnt be able to get an appointment as I would pass the bug on wich is understandable. So thats when I asked for advice.
You poor thing, it sounds like you have had a really bad run of things. However other than the usual advice there isn't anything your GP will be able to do, frustrating as this maybe for you and your employer. If this is a longer standing pattern or this pattern of frequent gastric problems continues it would be worth going back to see if there is an underlying problem. Hope you're feeling better soon.
