Customer Question

I have had "liquid" diarrhea now since Sunday. Monday and Tuesday though it let up for a while. It was brown then it went to yellow, and now it has turned green. I don't have a thermometer, but I know that I have had a fever. Freezing with three blankets on when my the temp in the house was 77 degrees. Plus I have also woken up dripping wet with sweat. I have been trying to keep up with aspirin. toast seems to be the only thing that i can eat. Kaopectate doesn't seem to be working. Anything else I should be doing.

hello
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 10 months ago.

With the symptoms that you are having I think that you need to go to the emergency because you may be having dehydration.

You may need IV fluids.

The shivering and freezing that you are experiencing is most likely due to dehydration which needs to be taken care of with fluids.

The green color of the stool in itself is not something that I would worry about too much.

Sorry I mixed a response with it of the ultrasound of the abdomen, which was not meant for you.
