Cannot diagnose: It is impossible to diagnose illnesses over the internet and that is not the purpose of this website. You need to be seen by a doctor, provide a full detailed history and undergo a thorough physical exam. Good luck and I hope you are better soon.

A 26-year-old member asked:
I enjoy sleeping with a body pillow, will that worsen my neck pain during pregnancy?

No: I often recommend that pregnant patients sleep with a body pillow as it can help relieve low back pain in pregnancy. Consider a buckwheat stuffed head pillow or foam head pillow if you find you are not getting proper neck support.

Swim, bike, eat less: A person's back, hips, knees, and ankles take on a lot of stress when he carries a heavy backpack or gains 50-100 pounds in weight. Obesity can worsen joint problems such as pain, swelling, difficulty walking, or trouble climbing stairs. Even if the original cause of the joint problems were from other diseases or injuries, the heavier a person is, the more wear and tear the joints have to endure.

A 34-year-old member asked:
What meds can I take to treat eye/head pain and stomach nausea?

Depends on the cause: Mscle tension headaches are best treated with nsaids (ibuprofen, naproxyn). Some headaches can feel like eye pain. Nausea can be treated with antiemetic medications. The real issue is that the combination of headache, nausea and eye pain should be evaluated by a doctor because they can be part of a more serious underlying problem.

Sounds like virus: Sounds like a viral "enteritis" - basically a "stomach flu". Viral gastrointestinal infections can not only be tedious to get through, they can also be quite serious in a small child. With symptoms of that duration in a 2 y/o you may need to get reassurance from a pediatrician or urgent care doctor that he/she is staying hydrated enough (as 2 y/o's don't have much reserve). Hope this helps!
