How do you know when you should go to the hospital for dehydration?
I've got some kind of stomach flu and was up from 3-6 vomiting every 15-30 minutes. I have not thrown up since, but I have very watery diahreah and I've only been able to drink about one glass of water. Everytime I drink a few drinks a few minutes later I have to poop again. I keep trying to drink but it just is so painful in my stomach. I have a real dry mouth and chapped lips. I just really don't want to go to the e.r. Especially I don't want to go and have them tell me I'm not dehydrated and have to pay that huge bill and make my husband miss class tonight (he isn't allowed to miss classes, he's in an apprenticeship and has to go before his union board if he misses even ONE class)
I really just don't know what to do and need advice.
