7-up and saltines?  That combo has always helped me with my stomach.

Make sure you drink lots and lots of water!! It’s really easy to get dehydrated when you are sick like that.

If it’s really bad and has persisted over two days, you may want to see a doctor.

Yes, lots of water if you think you can keep liquids down. Peppermint tea helps a lot for me too. Just the tea, no sugar or anything. Feel better soon!

I’d go with the Dr. route. You don’t say if you’re having BM’s as well. I assume you are? Or if it’s just pain. But dehydration is probably not helping you either way, and if it’s just intense pain you should probably get checked out.

@ama0219: avoid the applesauce – fruit just makes things pass through you more quickly. Can you do a little dry toast?

ETA: Do you know anyone who has had a stomach virus lately? Is it possible this is food poisoning or something else? I agree with others that the doctor is probably a good idea – especially if it hasn’t lessened in 30 hours. I know this is embarrassing, but if necessary, consider wearing an adult diaper (or one of those overnight maxi pads that cover half your rear end) for the car ride. It’s icky, but less icky than poo on the car seats.

I felt like this after eating oysters and my whole group contracted norovirus!  I was throwing up too.  BUt I’m going to go with the PPs and say water and crackers/toast if you can keep it down.  Just keep eating bland things!!

It’s miserable and I hope you feel better.  If you can, get yourself to a doctor if it’s been over 30 hours now!

So sorry, this sounds miserable. Pepto doesn’t help me with the runs, but Immodium does. Stay hydrated.

I usually end up in the shower if I can in that case, laying down in the tub.  The warm water helps relax the abdominal cramping caused by both the bug and the period, and if things come back up (sorry if that’s gross) it can pretty much just rinse away.  

It might ot be smoething you caught, but a food allergy or food poisoning, you could be senstive to something your Fiance is not, and it might not even be the very last thing you ate, as it takes a while for things to travel that far into the gastrointestinal tract – if you don’t feel better soon, I think the docotr migh be your best bet.
