He started not feel well on Sunday night, he stayed home from work yesterday because he just didn't feel right. This morning around 2 he started throwing up and having the runnings.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
He has had the runs all day, but only threw up 3 times. He just is not feel right. He does not have a temp. But feels achy and sore.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
He has not taken and does not take any meds on a regular basis

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
There can be a few causes.
There can be an infection developing.
In most cases it is viral.
It usually gets over in 3-5 days.
Sometimes bacterial & other infections can be there.
Please try to give plenty of fluid & electrolytes like oral rehydration fluid, gatorade.
This would prevent dehydration.
Please give bland, soft diet.
He can take peptobismol now.
It will reduce diarrhea, vomiting.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.

He can take Tylenol for aches.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

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.
