Hello and thank you for sending your question.

This is a very good question and I will work on providing you with some information and recommendations.

It seems like you have developed a moderate case of gastroenteritis. At this time it also appears that you might be mildly dehydrated. When you have illnesses such as this you can also lose a significant amount of electrolytes including potassium and calcium.

I would suggest that you obtain a hydrating beverage that has not only water but also electrolytes including calcium and potassium. If you're not able to consume this beverage you will need to report your local emergency room for intravenous fluid hydration.

i believe most of your symptoms are due to mild dehydration.

Thanks again for sending your question.
