Customer Question
I have had "liquid" diarrhea...
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
Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years 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.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
