So I couldn't sleep at all last night because of sever nausea and vomiting. After I threw up food, it went to bile. This happened before a few weeks ago, and I had thought it was a stomach bug then. Today, though, I also have been having severe constipation which I blame on being so sedentary and taking Tramadol. Well anyhow, last night was just awful. I checked into the ER at 10 am today, and just got home. They gave my a med to help with nausea and stuff, and put me on an IV. I feel a bit better, but now I actually DO have a low grade fever. So maybe I really do have a flu bug and it isnt my medication. Ugh.

Either way, I'm playing it safe and skipping the tramadol today. Which means I hurt terribly, but I'll take that over this terrifying stomach stuff. Ugh!! One thing afer another. :( *hug*

Thanks Loretta. I'm trying to take it easy. My fever came down, but my stomach is still messed up feeling. It's nasty when you get sick over top of other illnesses.

I'm sorry you are so sick :( but I'm glad you got in and got some IV meds to help w/ the nausea/vomiting. I hope you feel much, much better - quickly!

Take good care --Tina

Hey Patrick, I can relate, I was having a crohns flare a couple weeks ago and was doing some of the same things. Really can make a person feels awful. Hopefully this will run its course over the next couple of days and you will be done with it.

Take care.
