Started with some vomiting 5 days ago, followed by watery
fluid replacement, probiotics, hold solids
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
A probiotic may help with the diarrhea. It can help restore the normal bacteria in the colon and help to improve your symptoms.
In general, since the colon is inflamed and cannot absorb any solids, a hour wait is recommended before using any solid foods. This means that if 4 hours pass with no diarrhea, then you can use solid foods but if you have an episode in that interval, need to start the 4 hours again.
The initial foods would be dry foods such as biscuits, toast, plain rice. Banana is also recommended in some persons.
It is important to replace your fluids, loss of fluids and electrolytes would cause dizziness and weakness. Oral hydration products or dilute sports drinks can be used (must be diluted to reduce the sugar content).
Benadryl also has properties that help with nausea as well, some of the older antihistamines do not just help with allergies, they relieve nausea and dizziness.
If the use of the probiotics and resting the colon from solids does not work or the symptoms worsen, then you should be seen.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
