I had a stomach virus for a week. Had IV fluids but I am still dizzy all the time. Could I still be dehydrated?

Possibly. If you're thirsty, or if you feel as if you have a hangover, you may very well still be dehydrated. Your tongue should be moist and shiny. Your urine should be pale yellow, even clear, if you're well hydrated. Drink water, juices , even sport drinks, and minimize soft drinks, tea, coffee, and, of course, alcohol. If this is not your situation, see your doctor. Good luck. Read more...
