Strange stomach trouble

Is there a bug going round at the moment that makes you feel ill with stomach pain and churning etc but without vomiting/diarrhoea?

My auntie has been ill for a couple of days, can't eat, feels sick with upset stomach but that's it.

Am worried it's something serious as she is elderly and frail and won't call the doctor, although it does sound viral to me, or like the start of food poisoning.

I'm on my 3rd day off work - thought it was a cold (was off 3 days the wk before last) coming back as didn't feel I had quite recuperated. Anyway, symptoms seem to be more stomach than nose related! Off food monday am, forced myself to eat yesterday, and this morning finally have a bit of runs (sorry if too much info!)
Totally fed up with daytime tv now - it just sucks you in. Can't even emotionally eat to make up for it!
Hope your auntie gets well soon xx

Anyone else have this or can shed any more light on it, I am stressing about her.

Hoping that lots of you have it, I am mean! grin

sunday evening i had tummy ache
monday a LOT of urgent poos and some nausea
more poo yesterday
not so much today

if i was stressed i would think it was IBS, but i'm not and there's nothing i have eaten that it could be.

i think there is something going round.

I think so too, sorry you are sick though! Hope you are right as rain tomorrow! smile

Thanks, both of you!

oh and dd has been moaning about stomach ache for weeks, she had 2 days of quite runny poo, but that was a while ago and she is still saying she doesn't feel well. she's not acting quite herself either.

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Wed 10-Nov-10 13:25:41

there does seem to be a lot of it about. Hope your DD is better soon too!

amidaiwish Wed 10-Nov-10 13:33:02

thank you. it's hard to know whether she is just being difficult or does really feel ill!

hope your auntie feels better soon

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Wed 10-Nov-10 13:55:55

thanks! How old is DD?

amidaiwish Wed 10-Nov-10 14:11:40

just turned 5.

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Wed 10-Nov-10 15:07:20

Ah, a year older than mine then smile

My son today has diarrhoea, quite bad, which came as a surprise to me as there's been no sickness.

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Wed 10-Nov-10 16:53:35

poor thing, hope he is better soon!

4nomore Wed 10-Nov-10 16:59:01

Aww thanks, he's usually a "bounce-back quickly" sort of little fella In fact to be fair it hasn't really stopped him bouncing! He has ASD and he'd been eating like crazy the last couple of days which I think may be down to him misinterpreting an uncomfortable tummy.

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Wed 10-Nov-10 17:01:21

my DD has got something very similar to ASD, it's hard, she can't tell me when she is ill!

4nomore Wed 10-Nov-10 17:08:57

It can make things very difficult can't it? I have to do psychic diagnosis and I don't think doctors are much better at it either

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Wed 10-Nov-10 17:10:24

yes, my DD has regular ear infections, but all she does is be more grumpy and grind her teeth and stare into space a lot.
