I think my 12-yr...

I think my 12-yr old nephew has food poisoning from something he ate yesterday evening. He's had diarrhea most of today and has thrown up once. He goes from being hot to having chills but no fever now. He says his stomach feels like it's being stretched, he's miserable. He's very thirsty but afraid he'll throw up again. Anything that I can do to help him?

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

Vomiting once about 3 hrs ago, no nausea

He hasn’t urinated I’m several hours and hasn’t had diarrhea in about an hour. He took pepto bismol about 6 hrs ago but nothing since. He vomited once about 2 hrs ago

Please wait, I am writing your answer.

Thanks you. That previous message should say urinated in, not I’m. He’s moving around because his stomach hurts

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
Food poisoning can be cured with supportive measures.
Sometimes antibiotic can be required.
Gatorade, oral rehydration solution can be taken to prevent dehydration & electrolyte disturbance.
He can take in sips so that he may not vomit.
Emetrol, ginger ale can be tried to prevent vomiting.
If he does not pass urine, he may need intravenous fluid.
I would advise to consult doctor to have an examination and a management plan.

He can take tylenol for pain.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
