I'm on my 5th one since June...before that I hadn't had one for years and years.

Drs think it's just a coincidence...but I'm beginning to wonder...noone else in family or at work have it either.

Any suggestions?

Seems a bit excessive to me.

How do you feel the rest of the time? Have you tried taking a probiotic?

Actually generally feel a bit yuck..with horrendous period pains which I thought were related to the sickness, but this time I'm nowhere near by period.

Yes, do take probiotics.

I'd go back to the Doc, perhaps it's something dragging on that needs treatment to finish it off IYSWIM?

Are you just vomming or is it both ends?

Both ends! Yes, will have to go back yet again to the drs

I would go back to the doctor and go back and go back until you have a result. Have they checked a stool sample for infection?

My DD1 was terribly ill a few years back, she ended up with constant diarrhoea (but not vomiting too) for weeks and weeks. In the end, we broke the cycle with the following:

- acidopholus from the herbalist (much more intensive dose than supermarket probiotics) to replace all that was lost and get the gut rebalanced

- lots of starches, rice, potatoes, white bread

- low fibre, not much fruit or veg

Go very easy on the tummy, plain, simple foods

But, the doctor needs to be investigating a little more, you shouldn't be suffering like this.
