ughh. last night, sucked. I had some sort of stomach virus and I had explosive diarrhea about 15 times over 6 hours..and puked twice. :(  Im soo exhausted now...does anyone else get severe bone pain when they are dehydrated? I can barely walk my shins and joints hurt soo bad...and my intestines are all angry today. SOoo much rumbling. Anyone have any foods they always eat when they are sick?  I need to eat but I dont want to throw up again..or stimulate my diarrhea. Hope none of yall get this bug!!

Sorry to hear you got the bug, Blondie...those are never fun.  I would say for today, just drink tons of fluids - diluted Gatorade (diluted because the sugar can sometimes make the D worse), chicken broth, semi-flat ginger ale, etc.  Don't eat for several more hours!  When you've stopped puking for sure, go for dry toast, rice, or bananas; just a little at a time.  And sleep; nothing beats it!  Hope you're feeling better soon.

Sorry blondie... HUGS to you. My doc always tells me to wait at least 4 hours after vomiting to eat anything and like Sarita said... very bland. I can't handle any animal fat myself so I couldn't do the chicken broth but crackers is always what I start with and gatorade. And like Sarita said SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP!!
Hugs, Des

Hey Blondie-
Just so you don't feel alone, I've had some sort of stomach bug since Saturday afternoon, and have had more Gatorade than I care to drink. I freaked out because I thought my c-diff was back and took some flagyl without knowing (I'm in Bolivia and they can't test for it here, plus you can buy flagyl OTC). Well, that made me so sick I thought I was dying and my tongue turned white. Needless to say, I stopped the flagyl pronto. I saw a Gastro today, had some blood drawn and it appears I too have some sort of virus.
I ate some toast with peanut butter for dinner, a piece of bread with dried up boiled chicken and yogurt. I am flying to Buenos Aires tomorrow and now I am dreading the trip.
I wish my colon would just go back to what it used to be when I never even thought about it.
