On Monday 3-5-18 I came back from my usual chiropractor appointment and my wife and I stopped by Wendy's to eat dinner. When I got home I started feeling poorly as my stomach was cramping and I was having diarrhea really bad so she took me to Urgent Care. The doctor did an exam and no sooner than he explained that it was norovirus I became very nauseous and hit the bathroom running. I threw up a total of 10 times and not only that, but was having bowels running off at the same time. It was a mess. He gave me a shot for nausea plus he called in another stronger tablet for nausea that melts in your mouth. When I got home I threw up a couple more times plus I was chilled so bad I could not get warm for over an hour, which finally calmed down, and the next day I was so sore from the chilling I could barely move. This is Thursday 3-8-18 and I feel a lot better but am weak and still once in a while have small bouts with diarrhea. Never want this again.

Since I seem prone to these returning stomach viruses like norovirus that totally knock me out, I am convinced the bug mutates and/or hides in the body, e.g. in the colon, brain or sinuses. I always have a sinus problem with these bugs, so this time I intend getting it looked into. The general physician (MD) has fobbed me off with hay fever sprays, which are useless. I can hear liquid behind my ear/s all the time; irritable bowel syndrome remedies are also useless. Though I am trying peppermint oil rubbed into my stomach, face and ears. I have chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFIDS/ME) so weak immunity.

My Jamaican housekeeper made me real ginger tea and it really helped. Not just tea in a tea bag! Real ginger brewed tea! Boy was that a lifesaver!
