I have diarrhoea. also aching legs (sometimes shoulders), especially in the evening. I am very tired also.
Hi there... Aching legs, tiredness could be due to the dehydration or loss of fluids and electrolytes because of the diarrhoea. Most cases of viral diarrhoea get better on its own by 24-48 hours. I would advise you to take probiotics, oral rehydration solution ORS etc. If tiredness , weakness and diarrhoea persist, see a doctor. You might need IV fluids.
