    Try to stay as calm as possible because anxiety can cause nausea and increase the nausea you already have. Everyone recovers at different rates from a stomach bug. People don't always fit neatly into the text book timescale for recovery. It all takes time; simply wait it out and give your stomach the time it needs to get back to normal. Stick to bland, easy to digest foods; small sips of milk can help. Remember you got the bug only four days ago; you haven't had it that long!
