First vomiting(<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"> one night), and diarhhoea (two days) and now major (and i mean major) stomach upset and pains.<br><br><br><br>
Also, complete loss of energy, and slight dizzyness from any real movement<br><br><br><br>
Ive tried pain killers, tried stomach type medication, peppermint tea, rest, sleep, eating dry foods.<br><br><br><br>
I'ev been eating and drinking plently of fluids<br><br><br><br>
Nothing is happening.<br><br><br><br>
Please i would appreciate any advice you could give ad right now i'm willing to give anything a try i'm in so much pain and so weak.<br><br><br><br>
What foods are good for stomach upset and that can give me energy?

First of all I would consider seeing a doctor, sounds to me like a viral issue.<br><br><br><br>
Here are some suggestions I could find.<br><br>
1. A simple cure for a stomachache is to dissolve 4g of ground cinnamon in 1 cup of warm water, cover it for 15 minutes, and drink it like tea. This remedy can also ease diarrhea and flatulence.<br><br>
2. Carrot juice can be drunk to ease heartburn and stomach acidity.<br><br>
3. Chamomile tea is soothing for stomach pains.<br><br>
4. If you are feeling like you are going to throw up (Vomit) then take a jar of pickles. Open it and sniff the contents of the jar. The smell of the Pickling spice will soothe your stomach.<br><br>
5. Boil crushed mint leaves. Remove leaves by straining water. This makes a mint tea. Drink the tea. This settles the stomach as well as inhibits vomiting. Plus this is one way to keep your body hydrated if you're unable to keep anything else down.<br><br><br><br>
Good luck hope you feel better.<br><br><br><br>

Alas, if it is viral, there is nothing a doctor can do. Hope that it is bacterial; then they can drug you up nicely. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

yeah sounds like a virus in which case all you can do is rest and stay hydrated. looooooooots of water. it'll help you flush it out quicker. if your stomach can handle something like gatorade go for some of that too to replace electrolytes. failing that, koolaid with a pinch of salt in it.<br><br><br><br>
i find when i have an upset stomach it always feels a little better if i eat something. but i don't feel like eating when it's bound to come back up, so cooking isn't appealing. i usually live off dry soda crackers when i have the flu or a hangover. just be extra careful to drink lots of water if you're eating salted crackers or it'll make matters worse.

I've been sick like that before - liquids and rest are your best bets. Try to eat if you can - stuff like broth, soup, saltines, and try to avoid fiber - it can make it a LOT worse. Gatorade will help, and if you really need it, pedialyte works too. I hope you're feeling better soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hug:">

I've always used the BRAT diet for upset stomach, particularly diarrhea -<br><br>
B - Bananas<br><br>
R - Rice<br><br>
A - Applesauce<br><br>
T - Toast<br><br><br><br>
I know rice is a good binder, and relatively easy to digest.<br><br><br><br>
Feel better soon.

Amen to that! Works very well... If not, consider good ole' oatmeal, nice and bland. For the stomach pains, try putting something warm on your stomach and curling up on your side -- this has worked for me.<br><br><br><br>

Dizzyness could be vitamin loss too. I went through a period where I was forgetting to take vitamins and got dizzy spells, then when I keep up on them, I'm fine. Since you've been emptying yourself of all nutrients over the past few days, vitamin loss is my guess.
