Probiotics: I agree with dr. Abe. Another suggestion that I have is to eat yogurt with probiotics and live cultures. Probiotics can also be taken in pill form. This might help you get back on track. Good luck! ...Read more

Dizziness/weakness, vomiting, diarrhea. Started this evening. Stomach flu?

Gastroenteritis: It may not be the "flu" per se, but it sounds like you have a GI bug. Usually this is from a virus. For most people, the biggest risk is dehydration. Drink an electrolyte solution or make one yourself. Google "oral rehydration solution recipe". Otc meds like loperamide, used according to label instructions might be helpful. ...Read more

You May be Right!: "I may be crazy...HEY! But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for..." If you had predominantly GI issues but if that's all improved, I would be willing to accept gastric virus as a probable cause. Drink TONS of fluid. Remember the rule....drink (in ounces) half the number of your weight (in pounds) on a daily basis. If sick...add 20% to that baseline. ...Read more

 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

Val just had a baby 6 months ago and has had the stomach flu for 3 weeks. When she eats, she vomits along with other spontaneous vomiting. She is always exhausted and dizzy. ?

Val just had a baby 6 months ago and has had the stomach flu for 3 weeks. When she eats, she vomits along with other spontaneous vomiting. She is always exhausted and dizzy. ?

Not due to pregnancy: It is unlikely that this is the stomach flu if it has lasted for 3 weeks and also unlikely to a pregnancy with delivery 6 months ago. She needs to be seen by her PCP or an urgent caste clinic to diagnose her and treat her appropriately. Hope she feels better fast. ...Read more
