My 7 year old daughter had this at the weekend and is almost better bar a little bit of sneezing. It was like a scene from the exorcist for the first few hours. I started with it today, and am feeling almost entirely hollowed out. The constant diahorrea is easing a little but the aches and shivers a ow horrendous. Glad I managed to avoid actually vomiting though. That would have ended me. Anyway, just want to point out that the advice about ice lollies is spot on. I couldn't even handle a mouthful of water and was horrendously thirsty. A fruit pastille lolly every couple of hours has been a god send, so thanks to whoever posted that.
