    I've been suffering from diarreah and it has been ongoing the last few days, I took Loperamide Hydrochloride (Tesco diarreah tablets) this morning and it has stopped, but been replaced with awful nausea and vomiting with my stomach making loud noises. I think it might be a stomach virus if anyone knows whether there is one going round? I tried to take AHCC tablets but was sick instantly after that, and then tried taking a Vitamin D with probiotics and digestive enzymes to balance my stomach but threw them up too.

    I regularly take AHCC (strong immune booster found in mushrooms) daily to keep my immune system healthy so I don't know why I would have got the virus. The only other possibility is that I ate something bad - but wouldn't taking immune system supplements have prevented getting ill in the first place?

    Drink loads to replace lost fluids. Eat a little bit of plain food like pasta or biscuits so you have a little something in your tummy.
    Call a pharmacy or your drs surgery tomorrow. Stay home so you don't spread it to anybody.
    This sort of thing will usually pass without you needing to see a doctor, but if it's lasting multiple days and getting worse you may need to be seen. Pharmacist or drs surgery can advise you on that.

    Hope that helps.
