Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

watery diarrhea can cause dehydration and loss of potassium in his system which can cause muscle aches and cramps and headaches and severe fatigue

he may have had some food poisoning or a bad viral gastroenteritis

has he tried any Imodium or Kayopectate to help stop his diarrhea? he should

he should work on drinking more chicken broth or gadorade and fluids to hydrate himself if he is loosing fluid from diarrhea.

he should drink more fluids

and take some imodium to stop the diarrhea.

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?


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.
