I'm very very sick... anyone know what I can do?
I left work early yesterday because I was having such severe abdominal cramping that it was almost hard for me to walk, it would go into contractions for about 60 seconds and then stop and this went on for HOURS, then I started to vomit uncontrollably and in the middle of the night I was woken up with diarrhea and I've had watery diarrhea since 3p.m. yesterday and it hasn't stopped, I dont think I've ever gone to the bathroom this much in my life. I have horrible nausea and the stomach pain is just awful, it gets worse everytime I have to go to the bathroom again.
I'm trying to just eat applesauce and sip on some water so that I don't get dehydrated but the vomiting finally stopped and I'm worried if I eat too much or drink too much that it will come back..
Does anyone know what this could be that I'm going through? possibly a Stomach Flu or Gastrointestinal virus, I dont know if thats the same thing.. but I also have chills and then hot flashes. no fever though.
if anyone knows of anything I can do to help myself without having to go to the hospital, it would be greatly appreciated because I'm in ALOT of discomfort. I haven't felt this ill in a long long time.
I should also mention that I had something similar about 3 days ago, diarrhea and nausea but it went away after about 3 or more hours... it wasn't THIS severe but I find it odd that I had some symptoms a few days ago and then nothing and now I'm THIS bad.
I'm really worried :-( I had to crawl into the bedroom to go online because it hurts so badly to stand up.
What did you eat? Or drink
It seems like food poisinning to me? I know that some raw beans are poisonous etc...
Can you call a clinic near you?
It is important to listen to your body right now, if you are thirsty drink if you don't want anything don't eat anything.
Get some rest. When you will be able to eat, make yourself some fresh press orange juice and green juice. It is absorbe immediately by your body.
Blessings and love

I was really sick like this yesterday too, but no vomiting. I didn't eat anything, just drank water. That seemed to help.
This sounds too severe, please go to the emergency room!!
Get you some unfiltered apple juice and add some acidolphilus to it. Should knock it out quickly.
I had these symptoms once and it was food poisoning.
Please go to a clinic, doctor or emergency room. You'll be soooo glad you did, I promise.

No need to pay that kind of doctor bill if you do what I say. Easy, fast and effective.
what kind of acidophilis do I get? i take pro-biotics, is that not enough?? is it a powdered kind of acidophilis?

If it's enough, have you taken it today? If so, has the diarrhea stopped? Last time I felt like you did I got the liquid stuff from the hfs that they kept in the fridge. That way I KNEW it was live.

Any chance you could be pregnant?!?!!?!?
It is, therefore, evident that it is possible to cure by foods, aliments and fruits; but as today the science of medicine is imperfect, this fact is not yet fully grasped. When the science of medicine reaches perfection, treatment will be given by foods, aliments, fragrant fruits and vegetables, and by various waters, hot and cold in temperature.

I had similar symptoms a few weeks ago and ended up missing 2 days of work. I did not eat much, didn't have an appetite. I recommend fresh juice; I did 3 times a day at least, and hardly had any solid food. And get lots of rest...I was able to catch up on all the movies I had missed. If you're not feeling like eating, than don't force it. It's a good time to do a juice fast....carrot, parsley, greens, celery, beets....that's what I had and the juice made me feel better.
I go through stuff like this for two reasons. Food allergies and gastroparesis. If I eat something I am allergic to, this is how I react. The gastroparesis is nerve damage caused by diabetes. You should get to the Dr. since you don't know what is causing this. You could have something serious.
Something that I know will work for sure is to get some activated charcoal from GNC or Wholefoods. It's best if you can get it in bulk but if they don't have it that way, capsules will work. I usually just take about 1-2 Tablespoons of it and add to 8 oz. of water making a "slurry" of charcoal. Drink this concoction and you will feel better in about an hour. The diarrhea will go away as well very quickly. It is something to keep on hand in your home for anything like stomach flu or even food poisoning. It absorbs whatever is the culprit and takes it out when you go to the bathroom
The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
II Cor. 12:9
That was my first thought.
