Can someone please help. last 36 hours I have

This answer was rated:

Hello, can someone please help. For the last 36 hours I have had terrible diarrhoea, going to the toilet every half an hour sometimes more. I have been sipping room temperature water but it just goes straight through me. I am very dehydrated with constant dry mouth. My poo is just like mustard colour water. I have no energy at all. I also have tummy aches. This has been going on all through the night with no sleep. I have taken 4 Imodium and 6 paracetamol in 36 hours. I had toast in this time but just like everything else, just goes straight through me. This is the 3rd time this has happened since January. Thanks so much for your time. Regards david
Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
You have taken the limit of Imodium, so more wouldn't be helpful. Since you are dehydrated and have the tummy aches, you should see a doctor! You will perhaps need drip infusions.
And you will need salt.
Please do not hesitate to go!
