This is not normal... for me.  
I felt myself getting sick on Tuesday, was pretty miserable on Wednesday, and this morning, I'm a bit dehydrated -- but I'm over it. I'm coughing up some stuff, but it's what I call "battlefield brass" -- the remnants of the struggle between my immune system and the microbiological invaders.

I don't do this. I don't get the "24-hour bug". I've never quite understood it when people expect me to be All Better the next day -- for me, a "cold" sticks around for a week, on the rare occasions when it doesn't give way to something more severe.

This is the second time in the last six months that I've had a "24-hour bug" (really more like 48, if you count the first onset of "is that really a symptom?"). I've had nothing more severe than that in that time -- knock on wood.

I'm running through the variables, and I'm startled to realize that it may be associated with my change in eating habits back in May.

Good golly, eating better just might make you healthier, in a tangible, noticable, everyday sense.
I feel: confusedconfused

I have noticed that there have been a Lot of 24 hour bugs passing through our household this year as well, and we haven't substantially changed our diets.

In a couple months we'll probably find everyone except the Brittany Spears family is sterile.

I find I rarely get sick myself. Either I get a 24 hour bug of some sort thats easily treated by some hot tea and cold pills, or I'm knocked on my ass by the flu for a week. :p I'm going through the latter at present, though I've managed to take the edge off via some meds and bed rest.

Hopefully you get over whatever is bothering you as well.
