Should I get myself to a doctor?

Woke up this morning at 2:30 , puked and had diarrhea, at the same time. It is now 7:30, I'm still puking and pooping every 10min-1 hour. I can't keep anything down. Should I go see a docotor?

  • Ya please do so if you are unable to take care on your own; do one thing before that make a solution. In 1/4th glass of water, mix a tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt and drink it. It helps retaining the vital nutrients in the body. On a lighter side you seem to be addicted by Cafemom...

  • It's a GI bug, they are nasty. Take small sips of fluids whenever possible. A doctor won't be able to do anything for you

  • I would go to the dr. Same thing happened to me, it was a 24 hr bug luckily, but I lost 5 pound of fluids in one day. Be sure to drink lots of fluids, water and gatorade is what I had. DH had to take care of DS for the day for me.

  • I don't think there would be anything to doc could for diarrhea however if your pregnant and are having morning sickness they have medication to help with that

  • Sounds like the latest round of gi bug. Went thru my family and me and it was DISGUSTING. You might want to at least give your doctor a call.
