I will take his temp now as to the liquids he has had nothing since he vomitted
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
he is 70 years old and his temp is 95.3 under his right arm took it again on the left arm and got 94.7
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
gave him a small drink of water and he threw up also he is now constantly dizzy and has nausea all the time
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
took temp orally and it was 96.1
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
is this problem still being worked on?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

under arm temps are not very reliable.

I would do a rectal or oral temp for him.

he sounds like he is quite dehydrated if he is dizzy and can't keep fluids down

he should go to the ER and get some IV fluids and hydration and prescription antinausea medications

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.
