Tummy bug and earache
Hi Doc
A tummy bug seems to be doing the rounds at our company, but a few of the people who have had it also have earache, which I now have (tummy bug, cramping,earache, headache, dizziness and light headedness)
Is this all part of the norm for a tummybug - I cannot figure how your ears can be connected to your bowels!
