Resolved Question:

My husband who is 72, and still leads a very active life, has for the last 2 nights woken up and his pajamas and the bedding are damp. We haven't taken his temperature, but he doesn't feel well and is not eating very much. I wonder if he has a chill?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I certainly do think that he needs to be seen ASAP with the symptoms that you have mentioned.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would rather take him to the ER and get him evaluated.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It could be many things like a urine infection, stroke etc.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

He does need to be evaluated with blood and urine tests and may be a CT scan of the head if required.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Without seeing a doctor there is nothing much that you can do at home for hiim.
