Based on the symptoms, it sounds like food poisoning.
Since both of you are sick, this is likely from contaminated food or water.
Stomach flu is another possibility.
Yes. Many thanks for the quick answer. What shall we do?
Ofcourse, drink plenty of fluids like Gatorade if possible to avoid dehydration.
However, if you cannot keep anything down, then anti nausea medication injection ( compazine) is required.
For that purpose and IV hydration, it is better to go to the local hospital.
The symptoms usually improve within 24 to 48 hours.
But severe dehydration should be avoided as that can cause kidney failure.
So you think it is very serious and we need to start to worry?
it can become serious if the symptoms are worsening.
Hydration is very important.
Water is not enough correct?
has to be oral rehydrating solution or and electrolyte rich fluid.
All right. So to conclude, we need to start worrying if symptoms are worsening in the next hours?
And in the meantime => gatorade.
Would you happen to know a website with 24/7 emergency hospital locations in UK?
