    Has anyone had this and if so how long did it take to get over it? Had a day and a half off work with all the symptons – vomiting, achy limbs, nausea and a few others but still feel pretty ropey. Hopefully will be better for the weekend but am still struggling to keep food down – only water and nuun going into the stomach at the moment. I have no idea where I could have picked this up but if it is the winter vomiting bug it is pretty grim. I didn’t even have the energy to wrap the SO’s birthday present!

    48 hours after the last last explosion from either end before you should go back to work. Probably 3 – 5 days of the world falling out of your bottom.

    You should feel OK at that point

    He doesn’t deserve a present, for not looking after you propply! What a git. 🙁

    Here’s something nice to take your mind off the suffering:

    Definitely stick to the 48 hour rule, highly contagious! And I would advise cleaning/disinfecting door handles, taps etc. too once you start feeling better…

    Horrible, isn’t it?

    oh yeah, got the t-shirt for this! 2 days to stop feeling sick/achey. 4 days to start eating again, i had no notion for food, started back on mashed potato for a few days.

    You have my sympathies!

    It is nasty and quite debilitating. Mrs Ho hum, the three little Ho hums and myself had it once in the space of 5 days.

    You will get better though 🙂

    Dont feed the bug it’ll keep breeding starve for 24 hours with small amounts of water often.

    I thought it was just another daily mail scaremongering story but it seems quite widespread. I was a bit horrified when I read that it was hygiene related being a bit but then I was told that a large number of people don’t wash their hands after visiting the bathroom. At least I get out of racing on synday!
    ES – are you deliberately trying to make me feel queasy?

    Sorry to tell you but a norovirus stayed in my family last year for about 7 weeks…we all had it one at a time but on repeat for about 4 doses each.
    Felt fine between bouts, kids would eat and drink normally for weeks then suddenly just vomit again.
    Bought my little lad a bucket of his very own in the end! He decorated it with stickers and took it everywhere for a month…

    it’s grim. only able to suck ice cubes as drinking water just started the vomiting again. although i got hold of some domperidon tablets which stop vomiting, if you can keep one down they do the job.
    i wouldn’t wish it on anyone, it’s very contagious too.
