    I use either Peppermint or Ginger herbal tea when my stomach is upset. GingerAle, 7-Up and Sprite are all good stand-by's too!

    Hope you get feeling better!

    no I have other symptoms too I feel like I am freezing half to death, been up all night running to the bathroom I just feel so tired and just sick I thought at first what did I eat that made me sick but I have not eaten anything out of the ordinary so I don't think it is food poisning I think maybe it might just be a stomach virus or something also have a pain in my low right side but not bad just a dull ache

    The reason I asked is dh woke up at 3:30 this morning with same symptoms. Must be a virus going around. He took an anti diarrheal and was ok for awhile but said his tummy was starting up again about an hour ago.

    You could try some Immodium. Just clear liquids so tummy can rest. If you eat solids it will make it much worse.

    Hope your feeling better soon. Keep us updated, OK?

    My hubby's been home all week with it. I even took him to the ER because we thought his appendix burst. Im sorry but it's going to get really bad. But, thankfully, it only lasts 24 hours. The rest of the week he was just recovering [​IMG] My two year old has it now and has been a mess. Try to drink fluids with sugar and electrolytes like gatorade and take a pain reliever if you have one. I hope you feel better soon. Is someone there to take care of you?
