Oh my - I'm in real trouble ...

.... woke up this morning with a real bad tummy ache. I've since discovered I have the runs. After visiting the loo several times at home I managed to the 45 minute bus journey to work (but only just - was having real trouble on the journey and the pain in my tummy was unreal by the time I made it to the toilet this end) but I fear I may regret it. Thank goodness there is a toilet very close to my office!

I just hope its all calmed down by the time I need to ge thome tonight or I might be hunting around for a comfy place to sleep (with the mice for company - lovely). Probably in the toilet.

Oh god... I had the same issue for a day on holiday... not nice. If I was you I would have stayed home. You're obviously way too dedicated to your job

Hope you get better really soon.

You poor thing, stomach troubles can be so unpleasant.

I don't know what kinds of medications you can get over the counter in Britain, but here you can get Imodium which will help tremendously. We also have Pepto Bismol, or Kaopectate. They work also, altho some times not as well.

I wouldn't eat anything right now. Maybe some crackers later if things have calmed down.

Don't forget lots of liquids, but avoid fruit juices and sugary drinks.

Best not eat anything but, as Lea-ann said, drink loads of water.

Definitely try to get hold of some loperamide (Imodium). You can get it in several forms (chewable tabs, tabs you don't need wather with, normal tabs etc).

Just be careful, as loperamide can take you a bit too far the other way, if you know what I mean.

Drink plenty of plain (not fizzy) water for the time being, and see if you can get hold of some electrolyte replacement (e.g. Diarolyte) it tastes really nasty, but it's good for you if you have been losing a lot of fluids.

Feel better soon!
