I'm having nausea with fever, diarrhea, headache, stomach cramps and muscle pain. It’s been 6 days with norovirus infection but I have not recovered yet.

I woke up in the middle of the night feeling queasy with my eyes watering and throat feeling hot because of the norovirus infection. My head was spinning and my body felt like it was rocking. Suddenly, I threw up all over the floor. My vomit was partially digested food. I continued to vomit until I was dry-heaving. For the next 3 days, I threw up everything I ate or drank, even clear liquids. The 4th day, I kept down some water, though I vomited up Jell-O. I gradually was able to eat and drink a little. No diarrhea, but I would sleep for hours, only waking up to throw up. By the 6th day, it finally stopped.

This norovirus attack came on very quickly. The next thing I know, I was vomiting with severe diarrhea. I thought at first I had food poisoning. But ruled that out when my wife came down with the same symptoms two days later. I felt much better on the third day.
