DH is someone who will not go to the GP unless half dead, but I’m actually quite concerned.
Starting on Monday he has had D&V, pretty badly, and took Imodium as he’s a HGV driver so you can imagine it’s hard to stop whenever needed! This was on Wednesday, and he’s been having horrible left handed stomach cramps, he describes them as like contractions, and have made him nearly cry in pain. Yesterday they eased off but he’s now having problems with his left hand/wrist, and left leg/foot. He has swelling and a redness on the inside of his left ankle too, and is limping and struggling with pain in them both.
He’s thinking it could be dehydration? But surely that would affect both sides?

Nobody on here can answer this. Could be something, could be nothing. Could be a virus. Could be a bug. Could be unconnected

He needs to see a doctor

Could be gallstones, could be appendicitis. How's he doing now?
