Sicker than I’ve been in years

    So several Saturdays ago I vomited once in the afternoon. Just once only bile. Then that evening a few more times. Couldn’t keep food down for 4 days, then continued puking randomly for another week.

    Went to my doctor and got 3 prescriptions- 1 a PPI I should have been on for GERD (only 1 refill), an antiemetic and antidiarheal (told to go easy on it since it could really bind me up).

    Got better and was almost 95%. Then out of the blue I started vomiting again.

    Puked more lately than when I was a drunk, and when you’re wasted you can relax and let it fly. But sober you’ve got to struggle through it and enjoy every moment.

    Had a flu shot this year and still got really sick.

    Sounds like a good reason to get drunk

    No way!!! 9 1/2 years of sobriety isn’t going to end over this!

    And believe me I’ve drank more than enough already...

    dont want to start a debate, but this is more than likely the reason. bodies tend to reject poison.

    I hear that from many people, and its just one of the many reasons I refuse to get a flu shot.

    I feel your pain though, I have been sick on and off for a few months. Just when I think Im better, I relapse. Nothing as severe as your symptoms, but not far behind either.

    Hang in there man, it will eventually pass.

    Amen, my brother… I had to put down the bottle of bourbon a couple of years ago before it put me down.
    Hoping you'll feel better soon.

    By way of a tongue in cheek diagnosis…

    Been getting the flu shot for years. I never get sick. Just thought I’d balance the battle a bit.

    Get better and stay better soon brother!!

    Jay, I hope you feel better soon...

    I get sick once every 30 years or so on average...and end up in the hospital. I have learned not say never,so, I haven't had the occasion for a flu shot, I don't see a situation where I will. No fear of vaccines, just no need.

    Get a shingles vaccine shot.That is one beast of an illness you want to avoid at any cost.

    Ive been sick 12 weeks out of the last 30...flu like symptoms and headaches.

    @axis69 I know! My older brother had a bout of shingles a couple years ago. Lower back, and he was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE for the duration. Also knew a guy in college who got it on his chest. Interesting that it had followed the nerve from the spin and had an almost straight line in the center of his chest.

    Well, the shot is pieces of dead virus...

    Not to hijack the thread but I'll take the Flu over Shingles. They are nasty- felt like literally being stabbed in the back for days.

    Personally, Id rather be sick for 3 days as opposed to being sick with the full blown flu.
