Question for anyone who recently battled a tummy bug

Just wondering how long it lasted. Hoping it's just a 24 hour thing. :/
My 11 y/o was up all last night, & can't keep anything down. :( We rarely get sick, so I'm hoping this leaves as quickly as it came.

  • Awww, I hope the kid feels better soon. My daughter had a tummy bug recently, and it was here and gone in less than 24 hours.

  • We had it about 4 weeks ago. My Son (6) & all his classmates & Moms had it too. He was fine, went to bed, woke up & puked all over his bed. Woke up the next day & was fine. Went to bed next night, puked all over bed again. Fine after that. Next night baby Daughter (1), puked all over den rug. Next day fine. Next day I puked off & on that day. My kids can't describe how they felt but I'll tell you how I felt. I was dizzy after for about a week accompanied by major gas & burping then diarreah for a few days. Sorry TMI! LOL! I met some Moms at a Party for the kids & they said they all had the same thing. Hope you all feel better soon! I have never had anything like that! Whoa!

  • I had a, seriously, 12 hour virus yesterday. I threw up from 1:45am until 6:30am then got better from there. I am still a little tired today but functioning.

  • My son had it, and it was for 24 hours.
    Some people at work also had it and their children and it was either 24 hours or more.

  • We haven't dealt with one lately. I hope your kiddo feels better fast. So glad it's looking like a short lived virus.

  • We had a lot of other symptoms that lasted much longer with our illness, but the diarrhea/vomiting only lasted about a day and a half.

  • Thanks ladies- It's 4:30 ish here & she has finally been able to keep down some 7-up, some Powerade & 3 saltines! So my wish for a 24 hr bug seems to be coming true! :)
