gastroenteritis, advice please?
hello all, i'm new here and have a question about stomach flu. i've been experiencing symptoms for a day or two (watery stools, and i vomited once), and then yesterday i was feeling much better. this afternoon, however, i had watery stool again and began to feel dizzy. i've been drinking gatorade, and today have started to drink much more because now i am worried about dehydration. i've been starting to feel somewhat better after the gatorade, but i'm still worried.
however, i'm wondering if i should go to the doctor? the big problem here is that i don't have health insurance, so going to the emergency room would be a problem for me financially. i should also add that i haven't eaten very much in the past couple days too. would that be contributing to the dizziness? would continuing to replenish my electrolytes through drinking a lot of gatorade help?
