Customer Question

Hi
I started having severe heart burn earlier this evening that then turned into violent vomiting and diarrhea. I'm having bad stomach pains, nausea, shakes and can hardly keep my eyes open. Vomiting and diarrhea about every 15 mins for the last 7 hours. Should I go to the hospital?

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Yes,it would be prudent to seek medical help at the earliest to prevent dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.You probably need an antiemetic injectable and intravenous fluids apart from other therapy to correct the fluid and electrolyte imbalance ,and treat the symptoms adequately.
