Please help - sick bug!

Evening all, I have had a sickness bug over the last 24 hours. Not eaten anything.

the family are all beginning to recover - I just feel worse. Everywhere aches, back and leg pain, jaw pain, temple pain, eyes hurt. Had a trammadol but it’s not touched the pain. Struggling to pass urine as well. To exhausted to go and it takes about 15 mins before I can start a urine stream. Any ideas of how to get better? Stacey x x

I have MS by the way- don’t know where that little statement has gone from my under my picture x

You possibly have the Norovirus, also called the winter vomiting bug. Check out www.nhs.uk/conditions and look for Norovirus.

I had it 3 years ago and it’s pretty horrible with projectile vomiting, diarrhoea, chills, feeling sick, headache etc.

Telephone your local pharmacy and ask his advice. Mine recommended an over the counter product that restores the body’s salts and minerals lost due to all the vomiting, diarrhoea and not eating.

I don’t think I can give you the name of the product because of the house rules of this site but hopefully you will feel better soon.

Thanks for your help - will send hubby out to get this tomorrow! X

The last time I had vomiting, the only thing I could stomach for a day or two was the wee bags of fruit you get in Asda. I put them in the fridge so they would get very cold and every so often I could maybe eat a grape or a slice of apple. It was only in small amounts but the feeling of something cold with a bit of flavour helped make my mouth feel fresher without messing up my stomach.

Hope you feel better soon hun.

Thank you!! I have managed a piece of gluten free pitta bread this morning and not been sick! Just going to take it easy and rest now!! Starting to feel a bit better x I have had my flu jab a few weeks ago x - just got my prescription for gabapentin - how big is the box??!!! Hope it means I can sleep a bit better !! X x

Hiya

Glad you are starting to feel better. Gabapentin is brill for helping me sleep. It also makes me feel much calmer and I know it is used to help with anxiety which will make you feel better,

Hope you continue to improve really quickly.

Take care.
