If it's not one thing it's another! Chest is good (for me), but have woken this morning feeling decidedly queasy-as my late father would have said, 'umpity'. Too busy for day on sofa, panto opens on Monday, but my innards are winning at the moment. Daytime tv anyone?

Bad luck Katek. Not what you want right now. Or any time really. Yes try daytime TV, a lie down with a book, eat carefully and drink lots. Water I mean. Hope you feel better soon !

Thanks bellanonna, but must avoid JK show or bp will shoot through the roof. Am now ensconced under a throw with water, book, iPad and tv remote. Feel so lazy-not good at looking after myself.

There is a bug going around, DH and I are into our second week of snuffles and dodgy tummy. GC are very generous with their sharing.

I spend a large amount of my time battling with nausea and these I would recommend:

- ginger tea (preferably made with fresh ginger)
- ginger biscuits
- fizzy water
- crackers
- determination not to let it beat you!

Good luck

Katyk it sounds s if a duvet day would be the best answer. I have started drinking mugs of half hot half cold water when I am unwell instead of tea. I find cold water can be a bit of shock to the stomach.

Having eventually got rid (just of a four week cold and chest I have a dicky tummy now - been up most of the night. I shall treat conservatively (stop stuffing mincepies down myself) and go to the hairdressers.

For me it depends on what has caused the 'dicky tummy'
Sometimes it is a cold, the medical tablets I have to take.
When ever I feel all is not well in the tummy area I reach for Imodium instant (not an advert) With in an hour I am fine.
I will not go any where with out them now
