I was horribly sick and had diarrhoea on Tuesday at work <lovely!>. Had a day in bed yesterday feeling achey and today feel sick again and very bloated and weak. TMI I know but the trots smelt a bit fishy! Why has it sort of come back?
When I got sick like that a few months ago,i told my Doctor I wanted to take some Pepto or something to Stop the Trots.She hit the ceiling,said-Get your husband to the store,buy up All sorts of Sweet Drinks...like koolaid,7-up.You Are Not to dehydrate your body,too dangerous.She told me that if after 3 days I Still was weak and loose-boweled...then I must come in to her office.She said That if that happened,she would prescribe the Best medicine on the planet-it was a tiny pill (an Opiate). I Did wind up having to take it.Worked like a charm.
gatsroenteritis all last week - jeans now falling off me and still weak as a kitten - feel sick and still a bit squity sorry if tmi - nasty bug and just relived my dc's not caught it as bad enough staggering round myself - large amounts anti squitty meds and the pink stuff - lots of fluid and sleep - wish I could have chicken soup but can't be bothred to open tin - hope everyone else feels better soon. Big downside of single parenthood - still had to get dc's up and out for school and do packed lunches etc - yuch yuch and yuch. I would like a wife.
Hope everyone is starting to feel better now! I still have no appetite and still feel sick and weak. Am waiting for a call back from docs as I think I now have a urine infection! Wonderful. Went back to work yesterday which was a mistake. Bloody sick of it now! <excuse the crap pun>.
Yep. Me and oh had it. Oh got over it quick, I have been not right for 6 days. Accompanied by sneezing/cold like symptoms and so so tired Also sorry for Tmi but emissions from bottom half have smelt like rotten eggs
I just came to the Health board searching for upset tummy type posts and saw this thread. Think I may have this or something similar. Not been sick though, but certainly have felt nauseous along with the horrid squits since early Thursday morning. Also have been feeling rough in general.
I haven't got DC to look after, just me.
I think I'm going to just take lots of fluids today, as I haven't even wanted to drink very much and I know it's important to keep the fluid up, and try not to eat as eating is just making me feel more nauseous and giving me even more violent trots. (on the <cough> odour, yes it's truly vile agree with the other posts).
Any advice about what to eat tomorrow? (not bread am avoiding it as it tends to give me problems even when I don't have the squits)
Shhh2012 it could be the same bug as dp had it without being sick. Just the squits. I've read online that you should follow the BRAT after bugs. That is B For banana R for rice A for apple and T for toast. Too much toast not great I think.
I still feel bloody awful and went to Boots to get some probiotics and anti wind tabs! I look like Im about to give birth and can't stop peeing ! Back to work tomorrow
I had this too, after a week of feeling super tired (falling asleep at 7pm every night) got the nausea and burping and wind and squits at the weekend. Luckily had some codeine leftover from when I had CS took one as I had to go out and it stopped the squits. Just ate rice, bouillon, peppermint tea and yoghurt during the worst of it. Am feeling better today as finally my energy levels are back up.
