I'm not sure I understand?

You probably picked up a stomach virus. Per my doctor, there's a bad one going around this year. I had tummy issues for four straight days. But this had nothing to do with gluten, it was a stomach virus.

I hope you feel better soon!

It certainly is a horrible one and Vegas, where I live, is over run with it!!! Did you do anything in particular to control your stomach issues?

I'm sorry to say that nothing worked. I tried eating the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, apple sauce, toast) without the toast. Didn't work. Tried Pepto - didn't work. Tried Immodium - didn't work. After 3 days I was nervous but it stopped on day 5. I believe that if diarrhea continues for more than a week you should get your butt in and see your doctor, but a stomach virus in general can last up to two weeks. Hang tough! (And stomach viruses are VERY contagious. Watch your hygiene.)

I had that this fall and it was the pits. I lived on homemade chicken and rice noodle soup and tea. It really just had to run it's course with me. Sorry, I hope you feel better soon.

I hope you get over this soon. Please be sure to push liquids while you are still actively ill and watch out for dehydration. If you can't keep anything down or in you at all please do contact your doctor.
