dehydration

‘She’s lying. NOTHING is wrong. She just wants narcotics!’ My mom was in the throes of kidney failure.’: Woman ‘shocked’ by hospital malpractice, urges ‘it is your right to request a new doctor’

“My mother is a strong woman who NEVER complains about pain. Yet, there she was, writhing. Our doctor pulled up her records and angrily listed off her history of meds out loud. ‘Why did you take these?!’ He interrogated her. He wouldn’t give her an IV drip or her blood pressure meds. Her body was never physically checked. Instead, he tried to ‘out’ her as a drug abuser in front of her family!”

‘Cold water is good, so how could it be bad?’ Well, yesterday I found out.’: Man shares PSA after going into bodily shock

“We were out working in 100° weather (not a good idea in itself) when my dad noticed my face was getting pretty red. ‘Take a break,’ he suggested. I immediately grabbed a cold water bottle and drank it. Very shortly after, I started seeing spots. My hands and feet started tingling. I felt like I was going to throw up, so I opened the truck door and the next thing I know I’m face first in the ground and my dad’s rolling me over. My eyes had rolled back.”
