OMG! I had that on December 6th!!
I worked a double shift on the 5th and was supposed to go into work at 7:30am the next day. Around 10pm my stomach started to toss and turn and I was a bit crampy. I went home at 11:30pm and went to bed. I woke up around 3am with a need to go to the bathroom. I didn't feel nauseated or even crampy, but I just felt "ill". By the time I got to the bathroom I had to dash to the sink where I proceeded to violently throw up!
I sat down on the toilet and grabbed the mop pail and kept throwing up. I didn't have diarrhea at that point, just vomiting.
I went back to bed and woke up about 90 minutes later and ran to the bathroom and threw up in the mop pail again several times. I called into work sick. Great impression! I had just gotten back on the payroll 3 days prior!
I threw up pretty much every 45 to 60 minutes for the next 18 hours. I couldn't even keep down water. At the 12 hour mark I started to get diarrhea. I'm talking just pure liquid runs!
I was so dehydrated and light headed that I could hardly stand up. I don't have a thermometer here, but I know I had a fever because I was waking up in a cold sweat. I almost went to the ER, but to be honest I was too weak to even get to the telephone. I tried getting out of bed and I managed to make it to the living room before I felt like I was going to pass out and had to make a dash for the couch where I fell on it and proceeded to pass right out. I woke up about 7 hours later drenched in sweat. By that time I wasn't feeling as bad as I had been earlier and did manage to keep down a little water.
My stomach was upset and I was nauseated for 3 days afterwards. Anytime I tried to eat my stomach tossed and turned so I nursed ginger ale or chicken broth.
For 5 days my rib muscles were so sore from throwing up that I could hardly breath.
A few of the girls I work with have been off with it over the last couple weeks too. It's a nasty bug!
I hope you both feel better soon!!!
