- Norovirus experts/sufferers – am I infected?
Woke up to be quite sick in the middle of the night. After a thoroughly unpleasant experience I’ve been ok since (not feeling awesome but not being sick/dieing). Does that sound right for the winter vomiting bug? I was under the impression that once you started you didn’t stop for a couple of days, and was suspecting a bit of food poisoning instead?
Of course, working out what’s going on could have a serious effect on Christmas dinner!Posted 5 years agothemightymowgliSubscriber
You’ll know if you’ve got/had the norovirus. Relentless vomiting and diahorrea, fever, dilerium. It comes on really fast too. Last time, I started feeling groggy about 9am and was completely bog-bound by 11. Lasting 2 days before the vomiting stops. It can be quite upsetting first time around. Just hope you can be at hone when it kicks in.Posted 5 years agohmanchesterMember
No. Sickness and diarrhea until your body knows it’s gut is 100% empty which includes any sips of water you’ve had or dry retching. Poo like liquid and also empty.
Initial symptoms for 12-24 hours and then you’re essentially better. It’s just recovering from the ordeal then. If you’re good you should be 90% after 2 days.
I’ve had it twice…..
Yes, it’s awful, but…. Weirdly it’s also an opportunity to improve your gut health and bacteria flora. Fill it with veg, meat, fish, eggs and a good probiotic (tablet) and come out of it healthier. Think of it like an oil change. Small conciliation for when it’s happening and you think the world is going to end.Posted 5 years agotrevron73Member

I was reading that Norovirus causes gastroenteritis so effectively if you’ve got vomiting and diarrhoea then its largely immaterial what’s caused it. That said I came down with it (V&D) on Monday night and had the same flu like symptoms associated with Noro but I was right as rain 24 hours later and the V&D only lasted one night. Other people I know have had it for up to five days but the NHS website says that Noro can still be finished within 24 hours. Maybe some people just get a lighter dose of have more resilient immune systems.Posted 5 years ago
