How to recognise a stroke: act FAST

 

Diarrhoea
Most cases of diarrhoea clear up after a few days without treatment, and you may not need to see your GP. However, diarrhoea can lead to dehydration, so you should drink plenty of fluids (small, frequent sips of water) until it passes. It's very important that babies and small children do not become dehydrated.
Your pharmacist may suggest that you use an oral rehydration solution (ORS) if you or your child are particularly at risk of dehydration.
Back Pain
Most cases of back pain get better on their own and you may not need to see a doctor. If you’ve only had back pain for a few days or weeks, the following advice may help relieve your symptoms and speed up your recovery: remain as active as possible and try to continue with your daily activities, take over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen if you feel you need to, use hot or cold compression packs – you can buy these from your local pharmacy, or a bag of frozen vegetables and a hot water bottle will work just as well .
Call 111 if you need medical help fast, but it’s not life threatening!
