Gastroenteritis + IBS


Yesterday morning I woke up at half 7 with chills and stomach cramps. I went to the bathroom where I had diarrhea then threw up. I went back to bed after that and woke up again at 11 when I had 2 more bouts of diarrhea. 11 hours later I had another bout and at that point the diarrhea was pretty watery as I'd not eaten anything. I then had 2 more lots of diarrhea before I went to bed at 11, both pretty small amounts and v watery. I woke up this morning at 12 and had no diarrhea at all till 2 after I had some soup after not eating for over 24 hours. Once again it was a very small amount and watery. I took some imodium because last time I had a stomach bug I had to take it to settle my bowels down again as they flare up pretty badly. My main question is, is it normal to not have diarrhea for 6 hours then have it start again and also, is it normal to not have diarrhea till you eat?

Thanks guys ^_^

Re: Gastroenteritis + IBS

Have you seen a Dr about your Diarrhea, is it an ongoing problem.
You really should get this looked at. What is your diet like. Ii sounds similar to IBS but you would have other symptoms with that.
You could try increasing Fibre in your diet which would firm up your stools, taking medication is not the answer, you need a diagnoses to see what is going on.
