I am sorry about this

did you drink alcohol yesterday?

you may have a viral stomach infection like viral gastritis or food poisoning.

which can cause dizziness and vomiting.

if you didn't drink enough fluids yesterday or was in the sun yesterday, you may be severely dehydrated.

don't drink alcohol. do drink plenty of water and power aide. sure it wasn't the food., were carefull there. should go away on its own?? do I still need to go see my health care in the morning?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 months ago

it may go away

you can try some pepto bismal and drinking gadorade or powerade today and see if your dizziness gets better.

I hope you don't continue to vomit

flat ginger ale could help

ginger tea

improving your diet

cutting out gluten, milk, sugar, pasta, white flour, bread, sodas could help you loose weight over the long term

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
