i thought that maybe what i was going through was just going to last a day, but ive been feeling horrible for 3 days now. someone i know is feeling about the same as me, and we have no idea what it could be.

in last last few nights i have not slept. my eyes are really sore, but i think that is from the first thing :P i feel like vomiting, randomly but mostly after i eat. i also have not been able to eat as much as usual. i also have had a very big headache. and a little dizzy.

the other person i have been talking about it has pretty much the same symtoms except: her eyes arent sore, but shes been rubbing them a lot, she has also fainted.

does anyone have any ideas? :S we are worried.

  • Well, first of all I'd take a breath and relax a little. A history of symptoms you've described within the timeframe mentioned would strongly suggest that we're probably looking at viral invasion of some type that is infiltrating both the interstitial system and the GI tract. Viruses of this type tend to run their course in about 7 to 10 days, with some persons experiencing a residual phase that could endure for another week or so before returning to normal. If you experience a change in symptoms or they grow worse, it is always best to obtain a direct evaluation by your family doctor. The internet may suffice as a means to obtain information, but never a diagnosis. Best regards, J Cottle, MD
