STOMACH WOES

Last Sunday as I was going to church I mentioned to my husband that my stomach was feeling a bit weird.  I decided to go ahead and go to church and ended up staying for the whole block of meetings (3 hours).  We got home a little after 2 and ate lunch, and then the diarrhea started (sorry, TMI, I know).  Well, it wasn't too bad, just some stomach cramps and only diarrhea a couple of times.  By the next afternoon, the diarrhea and stomach cramps stopped, but my stomach felt sore.  Trust me, I really didn't have that bad of stomach cramps, I've had them a lot worse, and I really didn't have any nausea.  But my sore stomach persisted.  Walking upstairs, leaning over a counter, lifting something, or even riding in a car made my stomach hurt. 
So now today is Thursday, and I still have these symptoms.  I wonder if I need to go on the BRAT diet?  By the way, I know it stands for Bananas, Rice, and Applesauce....what is the T for?  Tea?  Tender love and care?  Well, I had to go to the store today, so I bought Bananas, Applesauce and Tapicoca pudding.  Forget the rice.

Toast. That's what the 'T' stands for...:o) Hope you're feeling better.

I think you should go on the brat diet. Basically you are eating things that are easy to digest, and slowly introducing the other foods as you can tolerate them. Sugar tends to worsen diarrhea, so gatorade really isn't that good for you. I hope you get feeling better soon! I was thinking that we three sisters posted about our health problems. We are all three falling apart! lol

if it keeps up go to the doctor, maybe it's your appendix or something

Yes, toast, and they do make sugar free gatorade, too. Lightning Strikes' dr put her on that BRAT diet plus gatorade, and it worked. She had to be on it a week, though, but I had kids go on it for only a couple of days and it worked.

Toast. Dry. Plain. Well chewed. Need me to make an Albertson's run?

These symptoms can be an infection too. I had the same thing and was treated with strong antibiotics. Unfortunately, some symptoms from these pills were abdominal pain and diarrhea, so it went on for longer than a week!
