Yes: I see that commonly with acid reflux especially late at night. Try taking an OTC acid suppressant like Prilosec to see if that helps or not.

A 43-year-old member asked:

What is more important: proper hydration or cooler temperature to reduce nausea in early pregnancy?

Acupuncture is best: I think fatigue has a lot to do with how sick you feel, so i usually recommend sleep. Acupuncture has been shown to help in some good studies, and my patients have done very well with that also. It's always good to stay hydrated, but i haven't heard that helps with nausea in pregnancy. Most pregnant women run hot. I've not heard that cooling affects nausea, but you might feel better overall.

Will the alcohol in breath mints and mouthwash cause nausea if I am taking flagyl?

No: You are correct that you should not drink alcohol when using Metronidazole (flagyl). The small amount of alcohol in a breath mint would not be enough to trigger a reaction.

Exercise : Adding exercise and self control by reducing portion intake and eating the right foods while counting calories is best. Increase fruit and fiber intake if not eating enough. Take a yoga course or start swimming if not already. Good, low impact exercises. If considering surgical options, know that the best procedures and surgtons usually require that one starts losing weight first.

When I bend over sometimes I get sharp pain in upper abdomen?

Probably muscular: Many people have spasm in the rectus abdomenus muscles when bending over to tie shoes or put on socks. The way to avoid this is to bring the foot up to the seat and do it. Breathe deep at the same time. If he pain is more internal, see a gastroenterologist and see if you have ge reflux. The treatment is usually medical.

See a doctor: Have an examination and proper testing. If your doctor does determine that gallstones are causing you upper abdominal pain & nausea, ask for a referral to see a surgeon for possible consideration of laparoscopic gallbladder surgery.
