Thanks for your query.

I recommend you to visit the ER now.

The symptoms your husband has might be due to Hypoglycemia (Low blood sugar). Is he a diabetic - if yes, there are high chances of hypoglycemia. Else, the second possibility of gastrointestinal infections causing loose stools needs to be ruled out.

Both hypoglycemia and frequent loose stools associated with dehydration can present with the aforementioned features. If untreated it is not safe for a person with heart conditions.

Therefore I suggest him to visit the ER soon. His general hydration status and blood sugars need to be checked and corrected if abnormal.

In the meantime, do give him rehydrating solutions like juices, plenty of water now and on the way to the ER.

Hope this answers your query. I wish him a speedy recovery. Do let me know if there other concerns.

Hi my daughter (11) has been having cramps in her feet and what she is describing as a stitch - upper right abdominal. She is also complaining of headache and excessive thirst. DUe to the thirst she is drinking plenty, so I am not thinking dehydration. What could it be?

My mom is having some memory loss suddenly. I m talking Wednesday night she was fine and Thursday morning should couldn t remember a LOT of stuff from the last couple of months. She was in the cleanse phase of a diet she was on and she had really bad diarrhea Wednesday night. Is this just dehydration or should we be more concerned and take her to the ER? If its dehydration, will symptoms reverse? How long does in take?

i was diagnosised with thyroiditis 3 years ago. I have been on synthroid for almost 3 years. But before that, I had an infection and was placed on oral doxycycline. we have a pool and i was out in the pool all weekend with sunscreen on. Then my daughter and i went to the beach, stayed about 2 hours, walking around and sitting on the beach. no problems. then on our way home, i started to get sick, nausa and diarrhea. by the end of the night, i was having chills and teeth chattering. thought it was from dehydration, but i was hydrated through out the day. ever since then, every time i am in the sun and get a slight redness, i go through the same thing again. it has been going on for 3 1/2 years. no one seems to know what is the problem. i have been tested for lupus, and so far it has come back negagtive. I also had a ct scan to rule out carsonoid syndrom. That was negative also. I am going to be tested again in december for lupus. not sure if anyone else has anything similar to this. my doctor doesn t know where to go from here, but she keeps trying to find something by reading.... so for now, i mainly hibernate in the house on hot days. boo boo, cuz i like the sun! also something i forgot, I am on hormone replacement and it has helped with alot of the red face with being in the heat. so who knows what is the problem... any suggestions?

I was discharged from a hospital after an 8 day stay for an esophageal tear on Tuesday. I did not require surgery....instead it was 7 days of no food or liquids orally, 2 broad spectrum IV antibiotics, saline, and Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium as my electrolytes were very low as a result of dehydration. I had vomited for a 20 hour period. The rupture healed nicely on its own. Morphine for pain and something for the chronic nausea. I am home now, but not really feeling better. I still feel nauseous (the smell of food can be triggering as can movement) I have vomited twice after a spell of uncontrollable shaking, followed by vomiting and then profuse sweating. I think one episode was a gall bladder attack since I have a history. But, it happened again last night. My stomach in general is bothering me (bloated, gassy, achy). I am on a liquid diet, but I am struggling even with that. I also continue to feel very weak and my mood is low. Thoughts?

I have been suffering from dehydration for a month and a half. The problem is when I get fluids from the ER, it comes back again because I have Diabetes and the medicine Januvia is preventing the fluids to stay in my system. My doctor still wants...
