Mild diarrhea with pain in the back and kidneys. Due to dehydration?

Last night I was sick pretty much on the hour from midnight until morning. Had a slight bout of diarrhoea as well although nothing to actually pass. Also have painful kidneys / lower back which I think is probably dehydration ... Any advice other than drinking lots of fluid (currently trying that but brings the sickness on)?

Welcome to HCM,

Along with water you can add electrolyte powder which will help in combating dehydration.

For pain you can take anti spasmodic s like dicyclomaine.

If the diarrhea doesn't subside you can consult your doctor.
