    Husband is sick anyone know what this could be?
    faithmarie2009 posted:
    The last 3 days he has been severely lightheaded (couldn't get out of bed yesterday), nauseous, loss of appetite, profusely sweating, and sometimes a headache. I couldn't find anything online to match the description. I finally got him to go to the ER which is where he is at now but I had to stay home with our daughter. Has anyone experienced this if so what was it? Or does anyone know what it could be? I'm really freaked out.

    Sorry about your sick husband. What did the ER doctor have to say about his illness? Maybe others will recognize it and respond.
    faithmarie1023 replied to Anon_175177's response:
    It was a viral infection that could only pass on it own so other then hooking him up to an IV he had to just wait out the sickness for 7-10 days.
