Is it normal to have diarroerah for almost 5 days?
I started having it last saturday night and have had it pretty much contsantly since. Yesterday i felt a bit better so decided to eat some egg and bread, plain and bland i thought.
2am this morning i woke with bad stomach ache, i went to the toilet and had a bad diarroerah attack again. But when i got to go back into bed i had this horrible sensation of my whole body stinging and burning, right through my back and stayed burning in the back of my neck.
I woke my Husband up in a panic and called an ambulance, they came did some checks and took me off to Hospital. My sats were 100% BP was fine and pulse fine, my sugar levels were fine too.
I had a further 2 attacks at the Hospital but the hot feeling seemed to subside.
The Doctor did some usual tests but NO bloods she didnt think it necessary as she palpated my stomach and it was all very soft, no masses anywhere.
She decided that i have a viral gastroenteritis, and that only thing she could give me was anti spasmodic drugs to calm my stomach, which havent worked too well.
I feel weak, empty and thristy, she said i wasnt dehydrated as i hadnt vomitted at all.
How long does it take for a virus like this to pass? it seems to be going on and on, and the longer it goes the more im worried its something more serious.
Anyone have any input please?
