Bad week

  1. Ok.. I just haven't had a very good week...

    I sprained my ankle of friday, went sat for an xray no fracture.. It is better but since 4 this morning I have had major diarrhea and puking.. I cant even keep a Sprite down.... I think it was my dinner I had last night.. Not sure if it is food poisioning or just didn't agree with me..

    Don't aggravate your stomach with food/drink for at least 8 hrs. then begin with liquids. If symptoms don't improve you may need to see MD. Don't want those electrolytes to get down! The whole thing sounds miserable. Hope you are better soon.

    I am sorry to read of your troubles. I can sympathize. I hope you are feeling MUCH better soon. Go back on food slowly...following the BRAT principle. GOOD LUCK!

    nurs2b, that does suck. Nothing worse than vomitting AND diarrhea. Ick.

    Please don't be mad at me but if I were in your place I'd be wondering what the 3rd bad thing would be. You know what they say....

    Anyway, I hope that if there's another unfortunate occurance, that it's over quickly and not too bad!!

    Vomiting diahrrea AND a sore foot makes hoping to the loo adventurous! I symapthise - happened to me once when I was livingin nurses quarters and guess who had the room fartherest from the loo!

    Just think from here it can only get better!

    PS try flat gingerale it is supposed to help reduce nausea.

    Look after yourself an get better soon
