bless you..

I'd say plenty of fluids and rest is all you can do really if he won't tell you how he's feeling as such.

just keep a regular eye on him.

if he seems any worse I'd threaten him with an OOH doc wink

an OOH doc?

BCNS Thu 13-Aug-09 14:08:27

out of hours.. but what I really mean is if he's looking really bad threaten him with a home visit from the GP

good threat idea smile

put your mum on the phone to him wink

I'm going to sound harsh here but if an adult man won't tell you what is going on then leave him to fend for himself until he feels bad enough to involve you. A doctor isn't going to come out and see an adult who is conscious and not confused but doesn't want to tell anyone his symptoms. Keep a quiet ear out and give him some space and hopefully he will fill you in later.
