See your doctor!: I wouldn't worry - i would see my doctor! worry is not going to help. Seeing your doctor and having further testing will help show what, if anything, is wrong. And, yes, it could be serious! see your doctor!

60 grams a day: The protein needs in pregnancy increase to meet demands for growth of the fetus, placenta, uterus and increased blood volume. Animal sources of protein, such as meat, milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, poultry and fish are "complete", as they provide the 9 essential Amino Acids in optimal concentrations. Vegetable sources of complete protein include quinoa, soybeans, buckwheat and hemp.

Protein & gout: Protein in general is not the problem with gout; it's specific proteins (purines) that occur in organ meats (liver, kidney, sweetbreads), brewer's yeast (beer), and legumes (peanuts, peas). However, any high protein diet, without adequate fluid intake, can damage the kidneys. Your fp can test your blood & urine for markers of gout and/or kidney damage.

See an allergist: You may be able to get the flu shot, but i would see an allergist first and not get this at a "minute clinic, " etc. See: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/flu-vaccine-egg-allergy/an02033/.

Nothing very much: It can be normal and still you can have a bad diet.
