    NO...DO NOT wait it out.

    Dehydration can happen very fast and it's dangerous. Please get looked at as soon as you can.

    well there are some horrible viruses going about ...myself and my daughter have been ill ...not with that , but that is going around ...so it is worth your family asking at the pharmacist ... just because he might have seen another 20 already and be able to settle your mind ..or he will tell them to tell you to get to the gp ...

    I hear that about not wanting to be to far away from a loo .

    Best thing to do is go to a clinic. All I did was drink Gatorade 🥤for a couple days and stay away from spicy food (that's a feat in Mexico🌮). But if you're not in Mexico it's doubtful your problem.

    It could be a parasite.

    I'm not sure how past disease's could be used to determine that.

    Ok, you do understand that there have been people who have caught the flu (or something similar) and some who have died every year because they refused to seek proper medical treatment in a timely manner, right? And it is flu season.

    You may not have the flu, but why take that risk? If something is severely wrong, you go to a doctor/urgent care/the ER. Period. End of discussion.

    Which is the leading cause of death of people with flu-like symptoms.

    Last year I had to go to the ER several times while I was pregnant due to excessive vomiting and severe dehydration. I had my own mother tell me to “tough it out and go to work” because it was “just morning sickness.” She was seriously dead wrong that by the time I got to my OBGYN office, I had blacked out on the floor and had to be immediately wheeled in to the ER with IVs. Craziest experience ever.

    Dehydration is no f’ing joke. It will kill you.
