Question: Dr.Rynne,
My family and I are on vacation and I came down with symptoms of sweating and shivering two nights ago. I think I had allowed myself to get completely dehydrated, so have been drinking loads of water the last couple of days. However, now I'm experiencing pain when I urinate, and my "pees" are not long and satisfying, just short and painful. Other than the pain when urinating, I feel great. The shivering and sweating has stopped. I normally consume alcohol daily. Have not the last two days.
Thank you
