  • I had what sounds like the same thing a couple months ago. It was miserable. I went to the urgent care clinic twice and both times they said virus. The second time they said I was dehydrated, and when I got the intravenous fluids I felt amazingly better. My symptoms were like yours. I had it for a couple days, it stopped, and then it started up again. The doctor told me do not take anything to stop the diarrhea for three days. But I was so ill and getting desperate so I took immodium. I didn't think of it at the time, but if I'd had gatorade on hand I would have taken that, diluted and over ice, to at least replace some of the minerals I was losing. Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon. By the way, since it may not be the same thing I had, you should go to an urgent care clinic or your doctor to get the correct diagnosis.
