I think I have some kind of stomach bug. all day today, for around 12 hours now, I've had a headache, dizziness, diarreah and constipation, a fever, muscle aches, tingly hands and feet/legs and just a horrible general feeling of nausea. Feel like I'm going to vomit but i don't, feeling faint, being very pale, my body can't decide whether it's too hot or too cold. How can I relieve some of the symptoms? I feel so so horrible and i can't put up with this much longer.

Hi,

The symptoms you are describing definitely indicate a stomach bug. I would recommned -

- drinking ORS (oral rehydration solution) or gatorade

- take enterogermina capsule or vial or another anti-diarrheal probiotic product available OTC

- take light food like toast, porridge, crackers etc

- take tylenol for body aches

- Take bismuth subsalicylate (Kaopectate, Pepto-Bismol), for diarrhoea and nausea

- loperamide is also available OTC, but should not be taken more than one tablet.

- lots of rest and fluids

If no improvement is there in the next 24 hours with the above measures, then consult a doctor immediately.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards
