TMI alert... Day 2/3 of the runs - is there anything I can do?

I've been having terrible stomach cramps + diarrhoea since 3am Friday. I haven't eaten but even fluids just go straight through me. I'm achey and shivery and am taking paracetamol every few hours.

Deep joy. Is there anything I can take? I don't usually get bugs and never for this long (feels like a long time with no food!). I haven't got any medicine in but dp could get something tomorrow.

Do I just have to wait it out?

Am a very impatient patient...

may i suggest some imodium (the supermarket own brand works just as good) and possibly some live yogurt like onken which will put the good bugs back into your stomach.

Thanks. Am beginning to think it's not a stomach bug but a reaction to having my gall bladder out 3 weeks ago. Sigh. Am going to make a GP appointment to see what they think.

But yes, immodium's a good idea - help me leave the house at least!
