Amanda, saying prayers that you get over this stomach virus quickly. To me being stomach sick is the worst sick you can be. I will do whatever I can to not throw up. I will talk myself out of it until I just can't talk myself out of it any longer and at 50 years old, I still need to have someone with me when I do throw up because I had a bad experience when I was a kid and I'm afraid I'm going to choke to death. Relax and stay rested and hope you feel better fast.
If it is the same bug I got I totally feel for you. If I eat I get sick. Which if i dont eat i actually feel better. Today marks day 7. I heard there are a couple different flu bugs going around 1 only lasts a few days and the other 10 to 14 days. The longer seems to be selective because sometimes only one person in the home gets it. So far I am the only one in my home of course.
Shammargen, I'm feeling the same way. If I eat anything other then crackers, I'm nauseous to the point of throwing up, but I'm not throwing up. I just feel blah at this point, like it's sucked my energy bone dry right now which doesn't take a lot at this point. It feels like it went away and then bam, right back again.
Try eating organic crystallized ginger. I get mine from the grocery store. It's strong (spicy but sweet) so take little bites but it's a natural antiseptic and will calm the tummy fast! And it's not a pill! Hang in there!
That's too bad. Spicy or greasy foods and canned tuna hurt my Gerd. Gingerale doesn't bother it if I sip small amounts and drink only 2-4 oz at a time. But different people have different reactions with Gerd, just like everything else. Hopefully you can find something soon.
FlappysLady, I believe the worst is probably over at this point. No nausea when I woke up, feeling human again finally. Still don't really have energy but my energy waxes and wanes based on pain levels as well.
Well hopefully that's gone and you have one less thing to worry about. Maybe in 24 hours you'll have more energy. Being sick like that, you may be a little dehydrated. Try drinking some Gatorade or other electrolyte replenishment drink. And rest to give your body time to recoop.
Lymie, I'm curious to know how the peppermint tea & apple cider vinegar helps. 🙏🌼
