My husband has been vomiting since 3am (it's now 9am) it's eased off a bit in the last couple of hours. He also says his "head is spinning" - keep in mind he's been lying in bed except for hanging over the toilet bowl.
Midday yesterday complained of nausea but had no trouble eating a steak and kidney jaffle.
For dinner last night ate roast beef, veges, gravy etc, dessert lemon yoghurt cake with cream, and had a couple of glasses of red wine - pronounced "Yum" when he'd finished, and went to bed 10.30pm.
To keep him hydrated I'm about to give him a little lemon barley water - won't drink straight water.
We've both eaten the same food over the last 48 hours, and I'm fine.............any ideas?
Thanks - Deb

I am passing less of urine while urinating and hence I have to have lemon barley water to flush it out for which i get some relief . Two weeks back I had the same problem and consulted my doctor who requested me to get my urine test done. But not much of a problem, I just had some minor pus cells for which my doctor recommended some tablets and was fine for some time. Again the same problem has occurred. I am not getting any pain nor burning while urinating. Please let me know what should I do.
