Getting over a stomach bug - bit gross sorry
So yesterday and the day before I basically couldn't get off the loo, and the day before that I had stomach cramps. I wasn't so bad yesterday and managed to eat in the afternoon and drink some rehydration sachets then didn't need to loo for the rest of today (until this morning, and it was hardly anything). And yesterday my trips to the loo were usually for next to nothing. Now when I rang nhs direct on the first day of the runs when it was really bad they said not to take any anti diarrhroea stuff incase it was a bug/infection and I needed to let it flush out. Well yesterday I had hardly any stomach pain and today I feel almost better (hungry) and don't seem to have any of those cramps. When I had something similar 2 years ago (it lasted a week though) I felt better but couldn't get rid of the runs - I figured my digestive system was thrown off balance and I needed to get back to uni/work so I took some immodium and it seemed to sort it. Now I'm wondering if I should do the same today? It's just become annoying now and I want to get my body back to normal. I have quite a tempramental stomach as it is (IBS) so it's very easily irritated.
