    Is there a stomach bug going around?

    Yesterday I felt fine until about 3pm when I started to feel really hot, lightheaded, sick, etc. Laid down in bed watching tv til about 8pm when I suddenly had to make a mad dash to the bathroom where I projectile vomited (sorry if that is too much info!). Since then I have been sick about five times.

    Had to take today off work because I am still feeling rubbish, don't feel like I am going to be sick now but my stomach muscles are killing me after all that vomiting.

    Just wondering if there is anything going around as it came on so fast! My brothers mate was here last night too and he apparently now has gone down with it.

    Sorry to here you are feeling unwell but there is a lot of nasty bugs about at the mo. My little one had the 24 hr bug last weekend and it came back again last night .
    Hope you are feeling better as the day goes on.

    Nothing like that here - sounds horrible, am really feeling for ya.
    I do have a bad throat tho, have had it for a couple of weeks now and keep losing my voice.

    I have heard of a few people who have had a really nasty vomiting bug in the last 2 weeks.

    I felt like I was going to vomit when I woke up, but *touch wood* I have not so far

    Hope you feel better soon

    Sounds like the one I had a couple of weeks back. Couldn't eat for 4 days even though was only sick for the one and dropped a dress size. The upside is will now be able to pig out at christmas without feeling guilty!

    Hope you're feeling better soon.

    Sounds like a Norwalk virus, particularly as you mention projectile vomiting - should go pretty quickly. Hope you feel better soon.

    It's the Norovirus, or Winter Vomiting Bug. Common all year round now unfortunately.

    I still feel like rubbish.

    I have not been ill today but really feel like I might be! Pretty much laid in bed all day, not eaten anything at all, just drank water.

    I dont think I am going to be able to go in to work tomorrow either, I hate taking sick days.

    This sucks.

    There's definately something going round. I've been under the weather for 3 weeks (!) Couldn't keep water down for first week and a half, doctor gave me anti sickness tablets, and ever since I've had awful cramps. Why won't it go awayyyy.

    9 days so far i have been ill, started with the most awful cramps but thankfully they have eased. food still aint lasting too long in my system. Only actually vomited twice tho, so im lucky?
