I am on Holiday in Spain and people were ill with stomach sickness , loose bowel and headaches. I was sick and headachy . I was told it was a virus but it could have been a food contaminated bug I mean the temperatures here have been close to 100 at times.
My question for us pbc ers is what to take as I rarely self medicate .plus and this has never happened before ...for four days my liver severely ached. I was tempted to go to hospital but what could they do for me??
People were trying to give me all sorts. I wS flat on my back for four days in bed and despite my nausea was forced to stumble around to relieve back tension. Did I need Ibrufen? Muscle relaxant but does my liver like it when it was already under pressure ...I did take it once in desperation
Something for the pounding headache ? What is safe ? Something to stop the nausea? Stop sicking?
If anyone can generally advise I would be grateful . If it's a virus let it run its course
If it's food related there is medication but all the while as my stomach churned my liver ached and throbbed....
6 days on I am fine still feel week and tired but okay but the real reason for this post is I live in nz and I'm on my way home via India for three weeks and I want to be in the know...regards self medication
With pbc we have to be mindful of our livers all the time
