Stomach flu/food poisoning

Post by look_spanky »

Had this twice in two months, not sure if I’m just unlucky or should be concerned about being particularly at risk from certain foods. Last night was shocking, going at both ends at the same time. If someone had offered euthanasia I’d have seriously considered it. Worst part was having to drive 3 hours home because the missus is more concerned about getting the kids to pre school than my health, the Bach owner even offered for us to stay another night for free.

No point to this thread, other than to say there is no god.

Not sure how old you are ,

If food poisoning it’s likely the same infection (listeria maybe) , take advice on diet and treatments as it hangs around.

If it happens again get a proper check up,

It's highly likely your wife is slowly poisoning you. It's probably a tincture that she puts on your cereal and it is slowly killing you. Not much to be done about it I'm afraid

No blood that I’m aware of.

Does anyone have any experience of exercising in the week of such an illness? I have a squash tournament this Friday which is obviously a pretty intense sport. There are points up for grabs so I don’t want to waste my time if I’m just going to start flagging after 10 minutes.

I don’t eat cereal, but she has been rather more enthusiastic about cooking dinner recently...

Get your affairs in order.
I have a sensitive stomach so often end up in hassle the week of something competitive. You have loads of time. Get electrolytes in and start replenishing quickly as you can. You're stomach will be ropey but tbh you won't want mad shit that will irritate it.

I find it hangs around. I've only had it three times in my adult life (that resulted in vomiting/shits) and they were all in the same year, literally within months of each other.

Either that or the wife was poisoning me.

Go see your doctor, your gut flora could well be messed up. Needs sorting.

If your doctor also considers it - be prepared for some invasive examinations on a regular basis !!

Also, medical in-joke - alluding to the fact that surgeons can be a bit bolshy sometimes - ‘a colonoscope- the only medical instrument with a shit at both ends’

I did take anti-biotics twice last year for something that the GP could have likely dealt with with a minor incision but were obviously too lazy. Seem to hand out anti-biotics like candy even with an impending disaster looming in regards to bacterial anti-biotic resistance. Both times I spent days on the toilet and they didn't work. Really f**ked me off as I'm against taking anti-biotics unless absolutely necessary given the havoc they wreak on your microbiota.

In fact, as sad as it is, I have developed a general distrust of GPs. Time and time again I have been let down with poor advice or misdiagnosis. I don't blame them as the science moves so fast and they're trying to sort someones issues out in 15 minutes and onto the next patient. A lot of doctors also struggle to change their views even if the science has.

I'm normally pretty good, once a day, good consistency. Tend to eat a low-carb diet with not too much fruit or vegetables. The old man definitely has it but is in denial and has been for years.

Before these two episodes I hadn't had any bouts of food poisoning or other viruses for years, only a run in with some sugar-free lollies.

Up until I had kids, I could count on one hand how many times I've had gastro. But as soon as my spawn started attending daycare, I was getting it once every 6 months. It would rip through our house like wildfire. The last bout I had affected me worse than my kids or wife (we all end up getting it). It destroyed me for a good 5 days.

We haven't had a single bout of that with our kids yet (touch wood), although the youngest has only just started pre school this week. However I spent most of 2019 with head colds and a serious bout of man-flu, when I actually thought I was going to die. Of course I got a lot of sympathy from my partner during this event. In between repeated periods of unconciousness I can still remember her standing over the bed, hands on her hips, rolling her eyes as I moaned like a cast sheep.

Well it’s back again. Into my third day of watery bowel movements, sounds like there’s a pod of whales in my intestines. I’m constantly amazed at how much liquid can keep coming out when you seemingly have nothing left to give.

Of course, very little sympathy from the mrs. As if I planned this to ruin her weekend.

Old family friend gave us the life hack years ago. Must say I doubted him at first but the next time I had day upon day of bum wees I remembered his sage advice. I'd add to get onto it early.

Bit of a luxury item, yeah? I prefer the simplicity of the bum gun myself, as well as the inherent ability it offers to direct the flow where you want it... those bidet things with their fixed jet arrangement require some butt cheek yoga moves for maximum satisfaction.

Never tried one. Heated seat, heated water, and drying action, one's bum could get used to it.

Heated seat, eh? hmmmm... I can see the attraction in that :lol:

I'm well acquainted with the bum gun as I've spent a bit of time in SE Asia where they're common. In addition to the efficiency of a well placed water jet in cleaning and potentially cooling the poop chute in a high spice dietary region, there's also the issue of lower paper consumption to consider in these toilet paper conscious times... a single sheet dab dry is all that's needed, post dousing.
