It started late Saturday/early Sunday with repeated vomiting, to the point where I got about two hours of unconnected sleep. Further vomiting was triggered by drinking anything. It was combined with movement-inhibiting muscle aches, and hot and cold flashes. But no fever.
A housemate had experienced similar symptoms earlier in the week.
Much of this sounded like classic influenza, even though I'd had a flu shot. It was suggested that, with the sudden onset of symptoms, it might be a norovirus.
No vomiting since yesterday afternoon, and I had chicken soup for dinner, with solid food in the broth. I slept a good six hours, without waking, and other than lingering muscle pain, I'm feeling pretty okay this morning.
Am I Norovirus Mary? Full contagious and asymptomatic? Are tiny hostile bug regrouping inside me to attack at full strength at nightfall? I welcome your opinions, uninformed by actually seeing me.
