I got this nasty bug last Thursday, and I got over it by Sunday. Went to work on Monday, and my BM's haven't been consistent. Either I go or I don't. I normally go in the morning, and then I'm fine. But today, I was having major issues. I was at work and had to run to the bathroom, basically I went 4 times at work, and twice at home. I thought I was over this thing, but it seems like my intestinal tract hasn't. How annoying! My boss thankfully let me go home. But it's annoying! I'm doing everything I should to help my intestinal tract, but..... it's just annoying. I emailed my doctor hoping he can give me some suggestions or add something til I get over this completely.

Be sure you are re-hydrating, drinking lots of water. Can't hurt, should help. So sorry you are suffering. Getting sick from anything, even a cold, makes me flare to varying degrees and takes me a while to recover from.

How nice to be able to email your doctor. I wonder if mine has started working with patients that way...I don't see her very often.

Yeah it's nice, but didn't benefit from that email yesterday. I was expecting him to up my meds or something. Oh, well. I have a 3 day weekend, hopefully I'd be fine by the end of it. I took yesterday off because I felt flared all day.
