Hard to do with the stomach flu, but you really need to try to stay as hydrated as possible. Anything you can get down - popsicles, etc. You may benefit from pedialyte pops - that way you'll get much needed electrolytes.

ditto on the liquids, its the most important part. Have you contacted your doctor for advise on what to take for your symptoms??? If you are having fever, try some Tylenol. But most of all LIQUIDS. Take care, and let us know how you are. We care for each other on this forum. By the way---welcome to the forum........Susan

Don't try to move a lot---really try to prevent yourself from throwing up. Flexing all those muscles and losing all those fluids is like running a deadly marathon for POTS people. You need to keep your heart from getting too stressed out or else your episodes will never end. I'm so sorry that you're sick. Definitely keep hydrated with something like Gatorade. When you lose fluids, you shouldn't just replace them with plain water, you also need electrolytes. Hope you feel better!
