I'm so so freaking sick. Woke up 5 aam Monday with the worst stomach pain I've ever had in my life! I feel like I'm on my death bed. I've been puking and pooping the last two days and I don't think I can make it another day feeling like this. I hope to god my kids don't get this not sure I've ever been this sick before. Any advice you have I'll take! Been drinking lots of water, tea and 7up. Woke up this morning feeling a ton better but as the day progressed I've gotten even worse :(((( wah wah wah

Sounds like food poisoning or the flu (if you have a fever too). Stay hydrated.

The flu is not gastrointestinal. Lol
It is a fever, shakes, sore throat, headache, cough and runny or stuffy nose.

It's a stomach virus going around. It lasts roughly 48 hours. It will pass to others. All six kids dh and I got it over two weeks.

This sounds exactly like what I had a couple months ago.  I'd suggest regular ginger ale, by the way, little sips frequently.  Jello.  Pedialyte.  Do a lot of handwashing to protect your family. On the chance that it isn't a stomach virus like I had, you should call your doctor and ask about it.

Not to discourage you, but it took about a week for me to get mostly back to normal. I hope you feel much better sooner than that, and that your family doesn't get it.

My stomach pain was so bad that I called the doctor. The nurse told me to take immodium or gas-x.  These didn't cure the pain, but it made the pain more bearable so I got some sleep and then woke up without nearly as much pain.  In case your problem is something else, check with your doctor- don't take my word for it.

Thanks everyone! I guess this stomach bug is going around town. My nurse of a mother said it should last a few more days. Thankfully someone is bringing me some more drinks and noodles (which I certainly hope stay down!)
