Often with fever and diarrhea we can get dehydrated leading to dizziness and headache. Try to get rehydrated, lie down. That should improve your dizziness. If not, probably wise to see your doctor ...Read more

My brother got CT and ECG scan, doctor said he's fine no problems. Yet he is dizzy, fatigue, feeling, faint, and diarrhea. Pain in head when sleep?

Further evaluation: A ct scan shows no structural problems ; ECG shows no arrhythmias but this does not mean he has no problems.

I woke up at 7 something this morning with diarrhea, nausea, and dizziness. I don't think it's food poisoning and I'm not sick.

It sure sounds: Like a stomach virus. If the room is spinning, then you have vertigo and this would produce nausea, in which case you should take bonine 1 tab 3x/day. If no vertigo, my guess would be stomach virus which should last 2-3 days, and you can take pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) and drink lots of fluids for the diarrhea. Lastly, no chance of pregnancy, right?? ...Read more

Can fruit juice cause diarrhea in adults? When I eat certain fruits or drink any fruit juice I get diarrhea, dizziness and extreme tiredness.

Diarrhea and juice: The basic fruit used in many fruit drinks is actually apple. Other juices are then added in for flavour. Some people do not tolerate apple juice well due to a poorly digested sugar in it called maltose. I'm actually not a fan of fruit juices due to the highly concentrated sugars in many of them. Whole fruits are better. ...Read more
