Just feel dreadful, sore throat, awful stomach ache, diarrhoea. Dreading starting to throw up, but normally get vomiting first followed by diarrhoea (which could be caused by large dose of iron tablets I'm on).

Can you have a virus with just the diarrhoea bit, and no sickness?

Yes you can.

I am feeling awful. No cold symptoms but had diarrhoea and I feel so nauseous I can't move nor eaten all day. I rarely get vomiting with tummy bugs but get really bad nausea, awful cramps etc instead!

Thankyou, sorry you are feeling awful too, cake.

Well no throwing up yet, but have slept all day and feel like I have been hit by a truck.

I have diarrhoea occasionally but I've only been sick once in adulthood that wasn't to do with drinking too much, and that was when I had sinusitis. Once all 3 other members of my family were sick and I just had diarrhoea. I also had a virus once with just the pains you'd expect with diarrhoea but hardly any poo. I think these things affect different people in different ways and if you're not a "sicky" person, you probably won't be sick.
