Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

I think you need to visit your doctor.

As per the information that you have shared, there are chances of some local reaction to the food or drink that you had last night.

As both of you are having, both have consumed same, the chances of food reaction is high.

As you are having much trouble, not allowing you to drink comfortably, medical attention is must.

Please visit your doctor and get your self examined for this.

You doctor after examination will give some medicines to help you get rid of this problem.

In mean time:

Drink only liquids, plain ones like soup, water etc are better.
Avoid any spicy food or soft drinks.
Take analgesic like Tylenol that you have for pain relief.

Please visit a doctor soon.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you speedy recovery and great health.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh

I was circumcised this morning and I'm terrified of going to bed. Is there anything I can do to take the edge off the pain?I've taken some painkillers (2x50mg paracetamol, 40mg ibuprofen and some codeine phosphate tablets) and read about wearing tighter, more supportive bedclothes.For further information, I just took the dressing off from around my penis and there was a fair bit of blood from near one of the stitches. Half an hour or so with some tissue paper and reasonable pressure has stopped the flow, but I worry that if (or, more likely, when) I get an erection in my sleep, it might start to bleed again.

I was vomiting all night, then diarrhea, fever(99.7) and then leg halves. I ve taken aleve, generic imodian. The fever has gone down, diarrhea gone but I still have the itchy leg halves. The halves are starting to appear on my arms now. I am out of town, should I go to a clinic? The only thing I can eat is water and crackers.
