Just wanted to say a big thanks to you all for sharing your experiences. Now i know this is what has been experiencing. The tip about sucking ice cubes has really helped as i feel so thirsty but can't keep any liquids down. I woke up at 3am with the cramps and haven't slept since. This is the worst sickness i have ever felt with a virus. I thought flu was bad but this is much worse. Vomiting and diarrhea at the same time is intolerable. My only tip is to keep a bucket in your bathroom the moment you start to experience the cramps. Im so hoping this doesn't drag on more than a few days as finding the lack of sleep, constant sickness and trips to the loo difficult to cope with. And the chemist told my partner (who i sincerely thank for looking after me and pray he doesn't get this) to drink boiled water as it is easier on the stomach than straight tap water. I wish you all who are suffering with this terrible virus a speedy recovery.
