You wouldn't be concerned about flu or west nile?

west nile would be rare. and would cause fever and rash and enlarged lymph nodes.

viral flu can cause diarrhea.

usually it runs its course and gets better with some time

and can be helped by imodium

Ok. Final question and u appreciate your patience with me ��, he is complaining of an extremely sore shoulder- pain is deep. He thinks he must've stretched it snd feels magnified due to the dehydration. You agree?

yes.

he should ice the shoulder with bag of ice and use a heating pad to see if that helps

have him drink more fluids and take some tylenol which could help his pain.

Imodium for his diarrhea.

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.
