In what way are you feeling worse?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Feeling very dizzy also
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Well it still will take about another day for the antibiotics to start to work

But you sound dehydrated and you need to drink plenty of fluids for now

There's also a possibility that your serum glucose level is high from the infection and that would make the dehydration worse unless you treat it with a lot of fluids

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
