Thanks for coming to HCM. Which part of world are you located ? Gastroenteritis
is a common condition in various areas as epidemic
. I am assuming you don't have diarrhoea
now. Please take light/mild food and plenty if liquids/energy drinks if you don't feel like eating. Generally, the symptoms take 3-7 days to recover.
Regarding your fainting
with sweating episodes, did you get it evaluated ? If not, please discuss with your local physician. It may be unrelated with your mother's condition but it's better you check the reason/cause and if required, take treatment. Fainting happening while doing some activity (driving, walking on street etc.) might be dangerous & should not be ignored. Does it happen with change in body posture OR when it you miss your meals ?
Hope you get well soon!
