Youre like an awesome YB mom...Keep yourself hydrated. Pedialyte is good, but drink some hot green tea with lemon and honey too. Take hot baths to help your body sweat the infection out. Do not take any Tylenol or Ibuproffin during the day, only at night to help you sleep without fever. Cover yourself in multiple blankets to help you sweat. Everyone is quick to "reduce fever" but if you don't let the fever run, the body isn't fighting off the infection. If your fever gets over 102, go to the ER. Take some immodium too.
Doesn't sound like the flu too me...........Influenza is a respiratory illness.This shit kicked in last night, and fuck me its bad. Puking, pissing out my ass, cant keep shit down. I didnt get a flu shot and never have. I prob havent had the flu in twenty years, maybe I just dont remember it well but my whole body aches. My stomach is in knots.
Im going to try some Pedalyte in a bit so I dont get dehydrated. Any other suggestions?
You nailed it especially the part about there is no such thing as a stomach flu.................I never heard this slang term till I moved to Ohio..........I'm from Michigan and we just called it having the shits.Someone please correct me if I am wrong: The flu shots are for respitory flu. What you are describing seems to be a stomach bug or what some call the stomach flu. I don't think Tamaflu is effective at combating the stomach deal.
I had Influenza A respitory the Friday before Christmas. Chills were bad Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday the clinic gave me Tamaflu. Started feeling better Monday. Good for Christmas. No idea if the script did anything to shorten the flu, but it made me nauseous. It also made me $50 lighter even with insurance. I still have a cough that I cannot shake. I got my flu shot about a week before getting the flu. Probably a week too late or so.
The er said this years flu shot not doin much for the strain that's running around, my wife is 8.5 mo prego, and she was having a terrible time so I drug her to er.. I was out 5 days from work.. She was out .. Terrible..
