should i be worried? ds & dh are both fine but ive been ill since thursday night, my stomach still hurts, still got diarreoha (sp) and every time i drink some water i end up retching. thought these things only lasted a day! not had it for this long before.

You poor thing, that's horrible. Have you been able to get any of the rehydration salts? (Name temporarily escapes me, taste like hell). Some of that is absorbed on the way to the stomach so even if you throw it back up again you will get some rehydration.

I think I'd call NHS Direct. That's a long time to not be able to keep down water. Hope you feel better soon.

Aw lissie!


have you got anything like dioralyte to keep you hydrated? I wouldn't worry too much unless the d and v get worse, but if yuo are not feeling any better by tomorrow then yuo should call yuor gp.

Poor you, definitely send Dh to get some rehydration sachets.

tried to have some but had barely swallowed it before it came back up.

will do. am just a bit concerned. NEVER have D&V (have oxes tummy)

it can go on for a few days, but in your case you need to get hydrated asap. you will probably feel like a bus has hit you for another few days yet so get plenty of rest and fluids

horrid for you lissie.

Have you tried full fat coke?
Keep decantering it until all the fizz is gone, add some ice, then take tiny sips.
It always works for me,keeps your sugar levels up.

Hope you feel better soon.

DD2 has had this this week lissie, though the worst did only last 24 hours - hers was on Friday and she is still weak and her stomach hurts.

I was going to suggest sipping flat coke too.

Hope it stops properly soon, it's a horrible bug.
