I have had 2 stomach bugs in the last 2 weeks. It's hideous. I don't know whats going on. I don't know if there are more bugs going around at the moment, or if it's just bad luck. Could be that your DH is run down generally and so catching every bug that's around.
Go to the Drs to get it checked out it could be something really simple.
My DS1 last year had 3 months of about 5 bad stomach bugs. The first one was D&V but the next 4 were just the runs.
Took him to the Drs and she suggested taking him off dairy for 2 weeks then slowly introduce it back into his diet she thought he may have become slightly lacto intolerant. We did this and re-introduced everything and we had no more bouts at all until a couple of months ago. We thought he had another D&V bug, went through what dairy he had had that week and voila realised we had let him have too much
Since then we just keep an eye on how much dairy he eats and touch wood no more bugs.
hmm, don't think it's either of this - he gets really bad vomiting for 3 days at a time - no allergies etc. Not IBS - he's being really sick. And not something simple like dairy.. (but thanks for the suggestions - I really do appreciate it)
My DH had this a few years ago, we thought it was stomach bugs/food poisoning but turned out to be gastritis related to stress, and exacerbated by a bug called H. pylori (sorted out by antibiotics). Definitely get him to go to the GP to rule this out.
