Hi doctor,

I am suffering from diarrhea and vomiting. I feel nauseated while eating. My BP is on the lower side, 95/60 mmHg. I did not take any medicine, just having salt water with lemon.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It is usually caused by viral infections, but even bacterial ones and alimentary intoxications can cause it.
  • You have low blood pressure due to liquid loss through diarrhea and vomiting. You can rehydrate yourself with ORS (oral rehydration salt) and other fluids if you can.
  • I suggest you antiemetic such as Metoclopramide for the vomiting. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  • Have only small portions of soups, toasted bread and white cheese. I would suggest you to do a stool test to rule out bacterial infections. Take care.
