If gastroenteritis symptoms last more than about 5 days, increase in severity (fever of 101 F or C or higher), or a person develops bloody diarrhea, dehydration, constant abdominal pain or other symptoms see a physician. The patient may have some gastroenteritis symptoms but may have a disease more serious than self-limiting gastroenteritis. Signs and symptoms of dehydration may include decreased or no urine production, dry mucus membranes, dry mouth or skin, no tears, weakness , lightheadedness and low blood pressure , while children may show little or no urination, become lethargic, have skin that "tents up" when pinched. Signs of dehydration in anyone are good reasons to see a doctor immediately.
Do I Have The Flu? Do I Have The Flu?
Having done paleo for a number of years with success, I started adding more and more starches (Sweet potatoes and potatos) to my diet to put on weight for athletic reasons. This eventually led to a slippery slope of me eating all kinds of crap. Four days ago i decided to clear it up and go keto. Wow, I am really suffering. Nausea, thumping headache. Basically like a really bad hangover. It was so bad today I caved and ate fries and a coke (neither of which i would normally eat anyway). The headache was gone with twenty minites allowing me to get some work done but the other symtoms remain. I’m soooo thirsty! Having read this I’ve definately had too much protein. Have i just extended the misery setting myself back like this? I didn’t notice any symptoms at all the first time i cut out carbs so Im quite puzzled by this.
