My cold has turned into a "stomach bug" type thing (not been to Dr's - my own diagnosis!)

I was up in the night every hour with trapped wind, stomach cramps and bloody awful eggy burps.

I can't keep anything down (i tried moving up to 810) I keep just bringing back up the shakes, chicken, lettuce. Even water won't stay down :cry::cry::cry:

I feel very weak. Not sure what to do for the best really. :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

Hugs and sniffles x x x

Hey hun, take motillium to settle your tummy. I'd call your cdc and talk to her but it may be wise to move to 1000 so you can have some toast etc.......but check with her first. Hope you're feeling better soon xxx

Sorry to hear your ill hun

I have been ill for over a week and the only thing i could stomach was toast. I spoke to my CDC and she adv to listen to my body. If i need toast then eat it but if my body says eat a whole pckt of biscuits, its lying lol xx

Hope you get well soon xxx

lol - well im not craving biscuits! I have just had a warm mint choc shake. So far it's stayed down...i'm trying to slowly sip the water too. Just don't want to over-do it.

Thank you all for your get well wishes :)

Sounds like you might have norovirus hun (winter vomiting bug). Should clear your system in 48hrs, if not see your doc otherwise you might end up dehydrated and feeling real crappy. Hope the mint/choc shake stayed put. Wishing you better quickly! Tx

Aw (((((EMMA))))) Poor Poor you hon i am sorry you have got this on top of your cold you must feel dreadful. You may need some rehydration sachets if you can't keep anything down. Try small sips of aired water hon and get plenty of soothing rest. Keep us updated sweet xxx

Hi Emma, I haven't been on for a week, my planned restart went wrong ! I have had a severe ear infection in both ears and I have a perforated ear drum. To say I have been in pain would be an understatement so I sympathise with you hun - I have managed to put on 6lbs this week due to eating toast and sucking sweets constantly, hot lemons, cough medicine etc and I am so dissapoined. However I have been very ill and the diet went out the window (I actually preferred labour) this morning is the first time I have woken up without being in agony (altho I am quite deaf) and I was up at 2am yet again crying in pain.

If you are ill, you are ill and basically you have to find some confort (mine was food - yes I know very bad), but remember weeks ago I had a bug and I had toast and I was ok that time and lost a pound.

Try to think about getting yourself better and don't go mad (like me), I admit to having a curry because the spices usually help when you have a cold (who am I kidding) !

Get better soon hun and sending you a BIG HUG xxxxxxxxxxxx
