Don't feel well at all, is there some sort of bug going around?

I have had the runs really bad all day, although no vomiting yet, are there any bugs at the moment? my ds has recently had a vomiting and diahorra (sp?) bug, so it may be i have caught that but i haven't been sick yet, do you normally get the runs first?

I feel awful, and haven't eaten anything all day. sad

Not heard anything in rl, but a couple of posters on here were something along those lines...

sorry you feel crappy.

Thanks Slur, anyone else?

Should i be expecting vomiting?

If you have what I had then you will be throwing up between mid-night and 3am. Are you doing evil-smelling burps? DS has only just stopped saying that my breath smells like poo (since Monday).

Yes my breath is "off", sicky breath...nice. Have had horrible heartburn too. Quite surprised i haven't been sick yet, feel like i have morning sickness.

I just want it to hurry up and get out of my system, feel awful.

SheSellsSeashellsByTheSeashore Wed 15-Oct-08 23:45:45

I was sick first dh had the runs the first. dd1 only had the dirroreah and dd2 was only sick. DH and my nan has it worst and were both really ill for about two days.

The thing is, i am doing placement in a school for my TA course, and i missed last week because ds was ill with this bug (he had it for 4 days) and now i have it, they are going to be impressed with me phoning in again. sad

Don't want to eat anything, at all. Just feel really woozy and sickly.

God i also hope i can "make it" taking dd to school and ds to playgroup in the morning, that should be fun.

Should i take some immodium? or are you not supposed to take them when its a bug?

yes, quite a bit going round of the S and/or D variety. my son had it, kindly passed it on to me, but I know of people in different parts of the country with similar symptoms, sales of a certain herb that stops the S & D quickly have gone through the roof apparently!!

i had a bug last week
runs, then shattered with headache, then sore thoart and finally aching everywhere. feel better soon.
if you have had runs, most schools have 24 or 48 clearance policy, so best not to go in. hth

how are you feeling tday?

doc said to me that with a bug its best to wait 24 hrs before you take immodium to give your body a chance to get the bug out

yep dd2 has had it for over 2 weeks, and very kindly passed it on to 30 party guests, inc me and dd1. some people seem to get it worse than others, suppose it depends on their immune system, i didn't have the sickness but had everything else.

yes, as it coats the stomach, it pastes the bug onto the stomach walls.
