Potential medical emergency filter - I need help translating the symptoms for dyssentery into French ASAP. (gross Medical TMI warning)
posted by allkindsoftime to Health & Fitness (11 answers total)
Currently in a remote location of a francophile west African 3rd world country and for various reasons separated from my colleague / translator. I have classic symptoms for dysentery
, which I have contacted before. Stomach pain, frequent urge to defecate, loose stool, stomach gas, vomiting, high fever and can't keep fluids down. I need to know how to translate the previous sentence to French, preferably with an "I have..." at the start.
I don't need admonishing on getting into this situation or logistical advice on getting out of it, although any tips for dealing with the symptoms far afield in the absence of drugs or medical treatment will be appreciated. Most of all I need to know how to write the symptoms in French. TIA (the thanks one not the blood diamond one).
