Dizziness From Dehydration
I've been having dizziness from dehydration & stomach flu, doctor gave me 1000ml of fluids & I've been drinking water how long till dizines goes away?
Another day, maybe: Usually young people such as yourself bounce back quite quickly from viral gastroenteritis. I presume you had IV fluids if you measured it in 1000 ml/1 liter. And you've been drinking water. Keep it up, take it easy until you feel better/less dizzy. Should not be more than 48 hours more. See doc again if longer. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Dehydration?: Your symptom of dizziness could be due to dehydration and it also could due to something else. Unless you're in the desert, or have some uncontrolled loss of fluid, you should not be dehydrated. If you cannot "focus" you need to go to a emergency room to have your blood pressure checked and get some lab results to see if you're anemic or have another factor causing your dizziness.Good luck. ...Read more

It can lead to some element of "dizziness", particularly when rising, but again if this is constantly happening, dehydration alone is unlikely the only culprit. ...Read more

Sometimes when I have an IBS attack I go to the bathroom 12-15 times a day. I start getting dizzy and sometimes vomit. Could I die from dehydration?
Dehydrated for sure: It is sounding like a trip to the PCP or GI doc should be planned soon. 12-15 bowel movements (BMs) per day is way to much. There are decent treatments for IBS with medication, food elimination diets, probiotics, and even stress reliving strategies. OTC Imodium (loperamide) may help slow BMs in the meantime. Drink plenty of fluids. If your symptoms worsen, you may need to seek help from the ER. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
