Customer Question

I have been vomiting and have sweating and diarrhoea since 8.30 am. I ate prawns last night and wonder if I could have food poisoning.

This is Dr. David

it sounds like you could have food poisoning.

watery diarrhea can cause you to loose a lot of water and fluids

you should use some Imodium to see if this stops or slows down the diarrhea

if it doesn't, you may have to see a doctor to get stool testing and stronger anti-diarrhea medications and blood work and IV fluids to fight dehydration.
