My oldest son had...

My oldest son had a stomach bug a few days ago. My youngest son vomited this morning 3 times but not for the past nine hours. My husband has had liquid diarrhea since 7 am this morning, nausea, cold and tired but no fever.

Doctor's Assistant: What are your son's symptoms? Has he used any medication for this?

No it ran its course in 24 hours.

Doctor's Assistant: Has he seen a doctor about this?

No. Since it is the weekend his doctor is closed. We could go to the ER

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in his medical history you think the doctor should know?

He has a ICD with a pace maker component and takes blood pressure, ace inhibitor and calcium blocker meds.

I think your family is suffering from food poisoning causing gastroenteritis. Mostly it is viral in origin and settles down on its own in 24 to 48 hours. He should take peppermint and ginger tea, BRAT diet, lots of fluids and oral rehydration salt or Gatorade to make up for lost volume and electrolytes. Hopefully, he will get better in another 24 hours.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5-star rating today!

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.
