Of course he has a headache, he is probably dehydrated and has a bad electrolyte imbalance. At the very least, get some Pedialyte into him. One teaspoon every 15 minutes. Not more, it will open the esphagus too much and set off a gag reflex and he will vomit. But if you do one teaspoon every 15 minutes you can get a lot of liquid into him in a relatively short time. Ask the doctor if there is something going on with his esophagus that causes him to gag.

Hi shibbyfer, Vomiting 30 times a day could lead to weight loss, electrolyte imbalance and other serious consequences. But since nothing of this sort happened, its more of your kid clearing his throat due to post nasal drip. I would say, it is not related to GERD. You can consult an ENT doctor to evaluate this problem. ================================================================ The information provided is for patients’ education only and is not a medical advice.
If the kid is having a chronic issue, then the pediatricians get worried about electrolyte imbalance. Same way with adults -- if I have food poisoning and hurl all night, I'm OK in the morning just to drink water (and eat if I can by then). But if I throw up for a couple of days or more, time for the Ensure or the electrolyte replenishing drinks.
I don't know what the relation between oxy abuse and an electrolyte imbalance would be... hmmm??? There are many reasons for hypokalemia- dehydration, calcium imbalance, diarrhea, vomiting, etc... I can't figure how any of these reasons would be associated with taking too much oxy. Muscle weakness and muscle soreness can be one of the symtoms of withdrawals from opiates- muscle cramping can be a sign of hypokalemia. Why do you ask? Just curious...
If not, I think you should go to the doctor's because I don't think stomach virus should last this long. You may have an electrolyte imbalance too from all the vomiting.

I have been off colour all week, shaky and weak and filled with tension. I have been worrying about all sorts of health issues, most notably electrolyte imbalance due to a post I read on this site; hearing how dangerous it can be, especially for people with a predisposition for heart problems, has totally freaked me out. I shudder to think about what's going on inside my body! And then my heart rate has been really low; I woke up last night and checked it and it was 51. How low can it go?
A Fleet enema will also pool electrolytes into the colon, which leads to a severe electrolyte imbalance. Signs of toxicity include lethargy, incoordination, seizures, fast heart rate, diarrhea, vomiting and possibly death. I am thankful that this client had the kindness to inform me of what she did, and asked me to share her story with my readers! The moral of the story is: . Never use a medication without first consulting with your vet. That’s what we’re here for. .

I've suspected for a long time, based on my research and the supplements I've tried, that it's not a deficiency of minerals at fault, but rather an imbalance... but I'd done everything I knew to do... super-charged, dark leafy green heavy green smoothies (up to three quarts a day), all sorts of supplements (chelated, in combination, ionic form, everything I could find).
