Hi all! My two kids had the stomach flu on Friday, mainly vomiting, with a couple of episodes of D. Well, lucky me, woke up at 5:15 this morning with D like I can't remember having followed by the vomiting. This went on for hours, alternating between the two, with a few extra D episodes for good measure. I can't remember when I have been so sick! I tried for as long as I could to not take something for the D, because I figured I should just let my body rid of it on it's own. Finally, I was just worn out, only passing yellow water about 3 or 4 times, I gave in and took 3 immodium caplets.Since then, about 5 hours ago, I do feel better, haven't gone to the bathroom, but had a slight low grade fever.I'm relatively sure that this is just the flu because my kids had it, but I'm still afraid I have something worse than IBS! I did read that when IBSers get the flu, it is usually pretty horrendous. My back and side are very crampy, from all that wretching I guess. My husband tried to reassure me that it has to be a bug because it was in the house, but the kids were mainly vomiting with only a little D. I had so much of it! I let my imagination run wild and I get scared!I do have a question though - my stomach has been whining and rumbling since I took the immodium. Should I just ignore it or take another caplet?Thanks for listening!
