Just had this bug and found it better to drink fluids with some sugar in rather than plain water, felt at least I was getting some calories in there even though I couldn't eat. Been drinking lots of fizzy water with homemade elderflower cordial as thats what I fancied and elderflower also has anti-viral propertes so who knows, it might have helped! Worst of the symptoms only lasted 24 hours although its day 2 and I still feel weak and breathless, at least I should be ok for Xmas lunch!! Got a 5 week old baby and keeping a close eye on him though, he seems ok so far.
