    I am sick.

    Had a headache yesterday morning, which morphed into a migraine. My head feels better today, but I still haven't been able to keep anything down since yesterday morning. I've tried saltines and ginger ale, canned peaches and chicken noodle soup.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    crackers or dry toast

    tiny little sips of water...

    after that's been kept down for awhile

    switch to the "brat" diet


    Bananas, rice, apples, toast

    Once this has been down for awhile, maybe you could try other things...

    In old age homes, they make you stick to the "brat diet for 24hr, after last up chuck..

    I hope you get better soon!!

    first hint of a migraine and I bolt to my chiropractor who nips it before the pain even starts. For a sick tummy... hot tea and toast

    I'm not feeling very well today either. My hubby "waits on me hand & foot" when I'm sick. Makes me feel much better in my heart....if not my head and tummy.
