Hayley has caught a tummy bug and been home all week so far. Just pains and diahoreea, but more the pains. She can go o.k when not eating anything and as soon as she eats dinner, then pain hits and last all night and until lunch time next day.

Have tried panadol for pain, but did nothing, chemist today put her on buscopan.

She has an appt on friday for GP

Now Jack is complaining of the same thing and has had diahorrea this afternoon.

How long does this last? I was told 7 days   ohmy.gif  I hope not.

Was told there are so many kids through the school that have had it, but none in Kindy yet.

Edited to add- I suppose I should be thankfull it is not a chest infection/Sinus infection or cold this time around wink.gif

Poor kids. It will pass but some tummy bugs can last a week to 10 days. I've never taken mine to a GP before for one, I would if they were dehydrated of course.

Make sure you keep her off all dairy while she's got it.

My DD's best friend had a very bad tummy bug a couple of weeks ago and was actually admitted to hospital for a day and a night. She was back to her normal self after about 4 days all up, though. The rest of her family didn't get it, and neither did DD, thank goodness (they have a lot of close contact)!

Hope your DD feels better soon. x

Hope your kids feel better quickly

our family had it, lasted 2-4 days per person, then moved on to the next person. I got it last and would have been much more sympathetic, the tummy pains were almost the worst pains I have had. it as awful. nothing really helped but keeping up the fluids

DD1 had a tummy bug for about 3-4 days about a week ago.  Wiped her out.  Vomiting only.

Six year old had a bug that was 7 days exactly. Cramps and vomiting though, not the other end. We'd never had a long stint like that before.

It was a strange one. He was fine in the morning and would eat breakfast but the cramps always started around midday and then he'd vomit in the mid afternoon. Same pattern for a week.

For my DD it's been 10 days and have just come out the other side of it, for DS 2 days and he was right. For me 3 days.

Exactly what we're going through here. Pain and diarrhia, exactly as you described. DH was at the GP yesterday getting a certificate and the Dr thinks it is a virus with instructions to come back if not better soon. Great fun stuff sad.gif

There is just so much variation to these things - the symptoms you get and for how long will depend on things like how much of the bug you are exposed to, how strong the bug is, how well your defence mechanisms are working, and what part of the digestive system the bug settles in. DD1 caught it from her friend who was sick with pains and diarrhoea for exactly 7 days. Her experience was different - vomiting for 36 hours. I caught it from DD and had dreadful nausea and body aches for about 5 days, but no vomiting or diarrhoea.

I hope all the sickies are feeling much better soon, gastro sucks the big one.

This sounds like what I had last week - it was awful.  The worst of the symptoms lasted for 3 days.  Agree the tummy pains were quite nasty, so my sympathy to your little one.

My boys had it for two weeks. Symptoms would stop for a day or two, the come back sad.gif

DS1 started with vommitting and diarrhoea, and then just had diarrhoea one and off.
DS2 started with vommitting, it stopped, then was on and off. Only one (majorly huge, gross) diarrhoea attack, and a few tummy pains. Then every few days he'd vomit overnight.

I had a migraine, then vomiting continuously and diarrhoea for two days, then just lethargy etc A week later the diarrhoea started again. With a few tummy cramps.

It as horrid. Went to GP, she ran tests and they all came back clear & said it must of been viral. Being 12wks pregnant, I had to watch for dehydration.

The same bug can affect everyone differently.

I remember when DD3 had a nasty tummy bug, with pains and vomiting. She was so sick and actually ended up in hospital with it. She had it for about 9 days. Then her twin started complaining of a tummy ache and I thought ok here we go again. She had one vomit and said ok I feel better now and actually was.
