Right now the southeastern US is experiencing winter vomiting all over it.

norovirus, the so-called "winter vomiting disease"

Anybody else think that calling something one thing and referring to it as the "so-called" something you just called it is lazy?

In California you can get a prescription for herb to cure vomiting disease.

Hasn't oregano oil been a folk remedy for nausea since, like, forever?

Winter Vomiting Disease aka norovirus aka what people really have 99% of the time when they claim to have the flu.

I don't know about oregano oil, but ginger does indeed work for nausea.

cgraves67: Winter Vomiting Disease aka norovirus aka what people really have 99% of the time when they claim to have the flu.


Yup. Often referred to as the stomach flu- it isn't influenza at all. I always say what norovirus lacks in duration (when I've had it, it has only lasted 24-48 hours from onset to full recovery) it more than makes up for in intensity. Those first six hours are a cast iron biatch. Then everything is out of you and you feel like hell for another day or two.

Herb...is there anything it can't do?
 
2014-02-12 11:59:14 AM
Visited down town Cleveland this weekend...this IS really a thing. Enormous mountains of grey-black snow with layers of brown and yellow. Sidewalks covered in mushy wet salt laden slop. Vomit would only improve things.

2014-02-12 12:09:03 PM
Norovirus is indeed nasty.  You need a dedicated bathroom, and even that will be insufficient.  But the leading cause of diarrhea and vomiting?  I have to echo Cybernetic here, and confess that my leading cause of diarrhea and vomiting has always been my own immoderation.
 
2014-02-12 12:10:25 PM
As a person who never gets sick, I would love a few days of the flu.

Laying in bed (or couch) watching crappy TV and hallucinating, can't get that from cheap gin.
 
2014-02-12 12:13:36 PM
Pizza and herb also prevents this.

Yup, never heard of a cruise ship either.  Been meaning to google it but I don't know what that is.

"Pizza herb?"

Is that how stupid the average U.S. News reader is? You have to explain that oregano is an herb frequently used on pizza or nobody is going to know what you are talking about?

My SO and I had it over the Christmas holidays. There were quite a few hours where I would have welcomed death.

We only have one bathroom in the house, too ... *shudders*

My first thought also.  fark us all if we're that stupid

I would sacrifice a goat to put off norovirus, so eating oregano oil would be a pleasure if it staves off the
effects.

Ugh.

Nothing like that feeling where you're afraid you're going to die then shifting over to being afraid you won't die.

Noro's one nasty little bug.

Do you then vomit on Sunday morning sidewalks?

i was sick for like 2 weeks with constant vomiting and diarrhea when i was ~10 yrs old. but from what i read, it shouldnt last more than 2 days. no idea what kinda strain that was but it was a biatch.

With two small school-aged children, we get it every year.  Two years in a row now (knocks wood furiously, bloodying knuckles) we have kept it limited to the children (who seem to weather it better) and spared the adults through liberal use of Lysol and bleach.

Listen - kids in school are going to get the stomach virus every year.  Schools are like little germ factories working triple shifts.  One of them picks it up from a little friend who at breakfast had a "sore tummy" and mommy sent him to school anyway, they come home, and ta-da!  Their sister has it too.

There is NOTHING like the horror of dealing with norovirus in two little kids while the adults come down with it too.  If we stay infection-free we have a half-way chance of maintaining sanity and sanitation.  If my kid is sick, I sit on the couch with him for 12 hours straight, holding the bowl for him, getting him flat ginger ale and crackers, watching 12 straight hours of Toopy and Binoo...not so easy to do if you're hugging the toilet bowl trying not to die.

It is so quick that you don't get to build up any immunity to it as well. A paramedic friend has had it twice in one week.

They're not using the bleach on the kids, you dope.
 
2014-02-12 02:11:57 PM
My husband just got over this. 24 hours ago, we were in the emergency room. He's pretty much over it now. It looked awful. I haven't gotten yet, but I don't feel so great. I may just be getting phantom symptoms. But, I don't want to be caught outside anywhere if I am indeed sick. Ugh.

Yes, thank you.  The Lysol and bleach is for the floor and bedding they puke all over.  And the dishes they use.  And the bowl they puke into (if you're quick enough).

I'd gladly take it from them and get it myself if they would be spared.  But it's them that brings it home, not me!
 
2014-02-12 02:16:28 PM
I had it sneak up on me over the course of maybe two hours one morning at work--it was that fast.  One minute I was fine, and suddenly realized I needed to get home fast.  I didn't make it fast enough, unfortunately.  Good thing Metra trains have bathrooms--I wrecked the shiat out of that thing.
