Customer Question

After having a stomach virus for 3 days, I still feel lightheaded and dizzy at times plus my stomach sort of hurt every so other. I would like to know what this diagnosis is contributed to.
Just to let you know that during those 3 days I did not hydrate myself properly. Could dehydration be the issue?
