User :   I'm a teacher. Yesterday I threw up at school about 3 hours after breakfast. I had 4 small french toast sticks and a small container of apple juice.
Felt nauseated all day long...but managed to keep everything down. Had a very soft almost liquid bowel movement before bed.
midnight, woke up needed to go. Ran to the toilet...out came...water. THis happened for a good 10 min. Took a shower went back to bed.
woke up again 1 hour later...well you get the idea...waking up every hour to poo yellowish water. Now vomitting as well. I throw up the food I eat...and the liquid I drink seems to come right back out the other end within 30 minutes of drinking. PLease help!
