I caught this from a friend a few days ago. Incubation period was about 24 hours. I started with diarrhoea around midnight on Sunday, which lasted for 12 hours. The diarrhoea was my worst symptom - I only vomited once, and once I had emptied my stomach I felt quite a lot better. I took a day off work, then went back the following day but couldn't eat. My stomach was making some very interesting noises in meetings, but there was no more diarrhoea so it was bearable. I still don't really have an appetite though. I'd recommend slowly drinking fizzy drinks (lemon and lime or coke worked for me), ice-cold water, and VERY SLOWLY introducing foods like dry toast, chips and potato back into your diet until you've fully recovered. I also slept for 12 hours last night and feel almost back to normal now, except for the lack of appetite. I can eat, I just have to force myself to do it. Make sure you wash your hands a lot if you get this - I've been obsessively cleaning everything I touch and my partner has gone through a bottle of hand sanitizer already!
