I have had stomach cramps and diarrhoea since Thursday

This answer was rated:

I have had stomach cramps and diarrhoea since Thursday afternoon. Symptoms seemed to ease yesterday so ate a sandwich but a couple of hours later cramps and diarrhoea started again. Symptoms have eased again this morning but stomach just “churning “ feeling light headed I assume due to lack of food. I am drinking small amounts of water

Hi. How long does this take please ?

Hi. My name is***** have over two decades of experience, and I'm online and available to help you today.

We can also chat by hone and skype.

Sounds like you have caught that nasty flu that is going around.....my entire family has recently gone through it.

Unfortunately, it took me almost three weeks to get completely over it.
The good news is that the vomiting and diarrhea seem to last about 2 or three days.....if that can be said to constitute good news :(

So. What should you do?

Continue to drink water, sprite or sports (electrolyte containing) drinks and rest as much as possible.

This bug just needs time to get out of your system.

Does this make sense to you?
