Hi, I am currently urinating pretty normally (just not drinking quite as much as usual) and I don't notice abnormalities in urine color.
I am drinking only water or juice (no tea, which I usually drink otherwise). My tummy gurgles after drinking but I am staying hydrated.
I seem to accept food or liquids more easily in the am - perhaps after my tummy has had a rest overnight?
No blood in stool that I have noticed - esp past few days.
No severe abdominal cramps.
Not dizzy. 2nd/3rd days weak and somewhat lightheaded - that is improving.
Hi, thank you - just one more thing - is feeling a bit better/more stable if I haven't had food in a while also generally consistent with a viral diagnosis? I think I am feeling somewhat better, then if I take my dog for a walk or eat something, I realize I am not as much improved as I might have thought.
Thank you very much. I thought it might be viral with the way I felt, but I wasn't clear and didn't know if there is urgency in something that could be bacterial. I'm unsure what rehydration sachets like dioralyte are, but I will investigate. I'm glad to know it is most likely viral and will resolve on its own. Thank you for your help.
