Questions and answers on "Barley water"

Hi
My husband has been vomiting since 3am (it's now 9am) it's eased off a bit in the last couple of hours. He also says his "head is spinning" - keep in mind he's been lying in bed except for hanging over the toilet bowl.
Midday yesterday complained of nausea but had no trouble eating a steak and kidney jaffle.
For dinner last night ate roast beef, veges, gravy etc, dessert lemon yoghurt cake with cream, and had a couple of glasses of red wine - pronounced "Yum" when he'd finished, and went to bed 10.30pm.

Thanks - Deb

I would recommend you to drink plenty of water, & repeat your urine test to make sure all is fine now and if in-spite of all this your problem persist, you should get your clinical examination done by a Dr to rule out any local problem affecting your urine flow, as this can lead to recurrent...
