    If you have the lurgy, it just means you're sick. Usually it's a bad cold, or flu, or perhaps an upset stomach with vomiting and diarrhoea.

    Some people just call it "the dreaded lurgy" in a slightly sarcastic way because it's not normally an illness that is worth dreading.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    It's also an illness that can be passed from person to person.
