Or Stomach Flu as some people call it? I came home on Wednesday with a terrible headache. I thought I must have a regular case of the flu (even though I had a flu shot this winter). Well, the "fun" started around 9pm and continued the rest of the night into Thursday afternoon. Thursday night it settled down and I was able to get a good sleep. So far this morning I've had some juice/jello and it seems to be staying put.

Gastro or the Stomach flu is somthing you don't want to get. I had it once in grade 2 and hoped never to have it again. This was my 2nd time with it and it wasn't fun! 7 flights in command of the ceramic airplane = horrible. Who else here has had this "illness"?

Yeah, no fun running for the washroom, getting there and then trying to decide which end to stick in first.....  butthead  or  vomit 

Been there done that. Are you sure it's not Norwalk Virus similar symptoms.

Get well soon

I've had it last week - not fun at all. And it lasted from Monday night until Saturday ... I've never had it lasting so long, usually it's a one-day thing, but no, this time there was no mercy!

I know, most web sites say to "consult your doctor if *whatever* doesn't stop after 3 days", but the 2 pharmacists I consulted told me that there were many other people around these days having it for a whole week, therefore I didn't bother. Just don't get dehydrated.

Rhaa... I am just having one !

And just one week ago, the radio news broadcast had announced that the epidemic had stopped !!!

Just to think : we have our baby girl at home, and last night I woke up several times, but never due to her cries... If it wasn't for that gastro, I would have had a complete night sleep !

Cheers,

Had it a few times, once with a salmonella infection to accompany it. One week in hospital, and a surgery later (to rule out appendicitis), I was still feeling like crap- lasted around 2 weeks I think.

Horrible stuff  Sad Get well soon!

Man made cases of "disappearing down the dunny" / "damaging the Dalton" / "(insert Site name) Belly" are even worse. One Mess at one Mine site was responsible for 87 cases in one day (out of a shift of about 140).

The culprit was the Chicken dish!

I've recovered by now my dad has it! He was not around me too much so I'm surprised. He was following me around with a can of Lysol.

Yes I have had it. There is a little tip I can give you . Get yourself a bottle of Angostura Bitters, you find it in the liquor store. Take about 4 drops and add it to warm Ginger-ale and drink it slowly. It will take away the cramps and help with the outflow. My Doctor told me about it in Barbados many years ago and have used it ever since with success. By the way ti does not taste great but it sure works. It is used to make drinks in the Caribbean, but was originally used as a stomach medicine. hope you feel better

Thats the stuff that burns through fabric (or so i heard). I know the Angostura comes from the islands. I think we'll stick with regular flat ginger ale.

My dad is too sick to drive to the liquor store, I'm too young to buy alcohol and my mom is at work. Plus I doubt my dad would want to drink alcohol at this point.

It is not alcohol, it is also sold in groceries stores, like Fortinos, Sobeys. It is a herbal mixture, and contains little or no alcohol. I see from your bio you are 16 to 20, take the advice of a person that has been around the block quite a few times, it works and get some to keep in the house for the next time you have a tummy problem
