Its the third day of of being turned inside out- Any Docs?
Salts and Docs, ditch the overdose of water you are just flushing yourself for no reason, drink normally.
Have you been over training/riding? I know you’re on a stint with your new bike but putting effort in has this effect on me sometimes, s’pecially if I’m training hard. My gut gets all squished and tense and the only cure is the squits, lasts 3-4 maybe 5 days at most, common problem, welcome to the sufferfest.Posted 3 years agoDT78Member
Had this since thurs and just about on top of it. Don’t take immodium, the first time max dose made no difference by day 3 all it did was give me massive stomach cramps and I still had the trots. Just paracetamol and rehydration and just put up with it I’m afraid. I’m about okay now, didn’t have to sleep in the bathroom last night.
Chicken soup and rice seem to be the best things to eat I’ve found…
Edit – don’t bother your doctor, read the NHS help pages, unless you see blood etc. in the mess then all they will do is tell you to drink lots and take painkillers. It is common for it to last up to 7 days. I’ve been doing a lot of reading whilst sat in the loo….Posted 3 years agobikebouyMember
Whadda eat Friday eve? Curry or something with lots of fat in it?
Could be that..
Stay off the fat intake, make everything lean from now on in, rice and potatoes with mixed salad helps but no chilis or tabasco. Stay off the coffee it’ll annoy it. No bread cos’ of the wheat either. Ride, you’ll be fine but no Gels, steer clear of refined fats, butters just about ok.
Should be fine by Weds.
Then kill it all over again.
Your tum will recover and get used to the effort but be careful of the gripe’s down below when hacking, it’s a sign.
You will turn into Sean Kelly (noted squits incident in the Tour back in the day where he had to ride flat chat for 50k’s in shit covered bibs)

After 3 days of real liquid – if several times a day – as a doc – I’d be wanting to send a sample for Campylobacter or other infections…
Travelled anywhere exotic?
but we ain’t supposed to give advice on the internet any more…
so I think ATP has the correct answer.Posted 3 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Do not take a sample in an envelope…
I remember looking out the window when I was a student to see my housemate waiting for the rush-hour bus. He was on his way to sign on with a new GP and had been asked to take a sample. So he was there, in the bus queue, with a brim-full steaming cafetiere of orange morning piss.Posted 3 years ago
I’m like a brown water-propulsion jet ski. Three days now, drinking plenty of water which adds to the propulsion.
Its not lessening. I’m not feeling ‘ill’ though, just weakening due to lower food consumption.
Any docs/internet med types? Anything that I can do from experience?
Immodium has zero effect.Posted 3 years agoScamperMember
Seems to be a bit of this going around. Afraid to say I had it for 11 days. Didn’t feel particularly ill, but not being able to make much stick just ran me down. Really severe cramps for first three days which slowly subsided with time. Any big meals or spicy stuff was a no no. Freshly baked bread sarnies with something like ham and salad and bananas seemed to work best. Then after 11 days it suddenly stopped.Posted 3 years agorossateaseMember

Err what over ripe ones too huh?
No just normal eating banana, in some countries they serve them (South Pacific) as a daily supplement
if you’re travelling somewhere likely to give you dysentry then one a day every day, if you’ve already got it, then two or three would help.
There is also the additional ‘bung’ like function.. 😉Posted 3 years agosoulwoodSubscriber
Me too. All night with stomach cramps and every two hours letting water out from me ar@e. On day 3 and I am now out of the liquid stage with just an uncomfortable stomach and zero appetite. Forcing jam on toast down very now and then to keep energy levels up then feel like I’ve just had a banquet.Posted 3 years ago
