Has This Ever Happened To You?

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Sunday evening I felt tired and went to bed a little earlier than usual. I woke up around midnight, and from that point on, I vomited every hour on the hour. I also had bad diarrhea. Early Monday, I started having the worst muscle cramps ever!
No matter how I lay, my toes, legs, stomach, arms, muscles would cramp right up.
I figure it must have been due to dehydration. As I started to whop the fluids to me, it did start to cease last evening. I got a good lesson in one important factor of why I need to drink water! I certainly have been ill before, but I have never had that happen with my muscles cramping so badly! Has anyone ever had that happen?
I hope you will share with me if you did!

    I get muscle cramps that my DH has to massage out. I test low in Potassium. I do eat a banana day. If I drink too much water I do get lots more cramps so I have to walk a fine line.
    I rarely vomit I think you ate something and your body was getting rid of what was there. Food poisoning does Spring to mind. Think about what you ate or ate out.
    Without enough fluid vomiting will dehydrate your body even faster. Take it easy, check for a fever and emoticon Pat in maine.

    I have no idea what it is, but I say drink tons of water anyway. If nothing else it may flush whatever toxins are in your body out. I hope your feeling better!

    My baby boy just had 8 days of vomiting and diarrhea, and the doctor said that he was probably having muscle aches due to dehydration/ lack of salts. Hopefully you are feeling much better now- it's a drag to be sick!

    That is so scary - I haven't had that happen before either. It does sound like food poisoning with how quickly it started and ended, but the muscle cramping is unusual.
    How are you feeling now?
