Any home remindes that I can do for the flu?

I had a grreat day yesterday, but I woke up throwing up thinking that it was just morning sickness and went back to sleep. I woke up about 4-5 times to throw up and since I cant take much meds, what else can I do for this?

  • Lots of fluids. Tylenol if you can take it. Lots of rest if possible. Being sick you just have to wait it out . I hate to say.

  • Chicken Noodle soup, Gatorade, water, and Tylenol if you are achy and have a headache. You can try Vitamin C too. Being preggo and sick is kinda sucky cuz you are so limited in what you can take.

  • Yes, I've just finished some tea and I totally forgot about Gatorade! lol
    It just feels like a head cold now, my head is throbbing ! but, I got a cold towel on my head for some pain relief. I did take some Tylonel and Im going to take a shower and relax in bed again. My back is just too sore to do it without a shower. Thanx moms. You guys were a very big help. I would'nt know otherwise. I appreciate you all for helping me. Chicken Noodle sounds pretty good right about now! <3

  • Vomiting is not the flu. Influenza causes massive head cold symptoms with high fever and body aches. Stomach "flu" is one of a million different viruses.
    Try to drink, even if you keep throwing up. The biggest danger is dehydration, so keep trying.
    If it doesn't get better in a day, call the doctor.

  • Anything you can keep down is good, but try eating Saltines and be sure to drink plenty of fluids. You can drink Gatorade (or some other sport beverage) for the electrolytes, too. NO PEPTO!!!!
