Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.

As per your description,you may have electrolyte imbalance resulting in low urine volume and dizziness.

I would advise you to start gatorade.

Also start to eat a BRATY diet (Banana,rice,apple sauce,toast and yogurt).

You should monitor your blood pressure and heart rate.

Take citrucel.

And start a probiotic.

If your symptoms'll not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam.
