Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
if you are constipated, you need to ask for laxatives such as miralax or senokott and stool softeners like colace to help soften your stools.
being dehydrated doesn't help your constipation.
why are you dehydrated? are you able to drink water and fluids?
they should be giving you water.
when you take senna laxative or movicol and you don't have enough fluid in your blood system, the laxatives don't work.
I have been dehydrated for 4 days now doc
are they giving you food and water?
Offering it but I can't swallow
why can't you swallow water?
It hurts doctor I have a learning disability
if you have a sore throat you need to let your doctors examine your throat.
you could have a viral throat infection or bad acid reflux up of stomach acid coming up from your stomach causing sore throat.
you should ask your doctors for throat numbing medications. like lidocaine.
Do you think I need to be on a drip
are you urinating?
you need blood testing to check your blood creatinine and BUN levels to see if you are really dehydrated
your doctors should check your blood levels.
About 2 times a day it is very dark
yes, it sounds like you most likely need IV fluids.
and you need a throat exam.
do you have any other questions?
what other questions do you have?
I feel very lite headed
that is probably from the dehydration.
I feel like my body is shutting down I have no energy I am very upset and feel neglected
ask your doctor to check your blood levels
in a mental hospital they should be able to do that.
then that will prove you are dehydrated.
and then you should get some IV fluids.
It's like they are refusing the medical care I desperately need
ask your doctors to check your blood levels
and check inside of your throat to find out why you are having pain swallowing.
how long have you had this pain swallowing?
These are only junior doctors
For 5 days now
What would you do
I would ask the junior doctors in training to check inside of your throat and check for throat infection.
and ask for lidocaine pain medications to help numb your throat for pain.
and check your blood for BUN and creatinine levels.
you also have to work on drinking more water and fluids.
Thanks doc do you think I need to go to a general hospital
Doc you still there
if your throat pain and dehydration doesn't get better you might have to go to a regular hospital.
they should be able to do simple blood work for you at the mental hospital.
let me know if you have other questions.
if done, please leave positive feedback below.
