I started feeling ill on Boxing night. I suddenly felt the blood drain from my face, went all cold and sweaty then vomited. Felt ok for the next hour and a half so I though Id just eaten too much at lunch time. Then it all started again and by the third time the diarrhea started as well. This continued through the night sometimes both ends at the same time which was terrible! The vomiting stopped after 12 hours but the diarrhea continued for another 12 hours but very mild compared to the start. I got up for two hours yesterday afternoon but had to come back to bed as I just wanted to lie down and sleep. I've been drinking water and diet coke [to get the nasty taste out of my mouth more than anything] I've managed a shower, change the bed clothes, two hours on the sofa but I'm now back in bed again totally shattered and stomach still churning. I've eaten a few digestive biscuits and some grapes as that's all I fancied and I'm now drinking Lucozade. I've lost 6lbs already. This is the nastiest virus I've ever had!! I'll keep drinking as I had a dizzy spell in the shower earlier so was probably a bit dehydrated. I'll just let it run it's course and eat when I'm hungry again.
