Get evaluation: I generally define fever as 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit or above. It depends on how long the fever has been going. If you have been having fever for less than a week, it is most likely viral or bacterial gastroenteritis. If severe diarrhea with dehydration and lightheadedness, get seen right away. If the fever has been going a week or more, you should definitely get evaluated as well.

Why do women have to go on bed rest in pregnancy?

Lots of reasons: Patients experiencing a normal pregnancy can stay active and do not need to be on bedrest. Some complications require bedrest. Some complications include preterm labor, ruptured membranes (water broken), a short cervix, a dilated cervix, high blood pressure, placenta problems and vaginal bleeding.

NO !!: All those things are helping you stay stable and keeping you from getting worse. Consider chinese medicine and acupuncture to help you get balanced and possibly improve your diabetes slightly. Do not give up those healthy lifestyle habits!

Treat symptoms first: You may offer comfort care with rest, fluids and medication for now and monitor his progress, depending on what type of surgery was performed, it is difficult to accurately guide you perfectly on how to move forward. Contact the surgeon if your son is not improving over the next few days. Sooner if he is not resoonding to your "comfort care.".

No: A the present time spiriva is only indicated for use in patients with copd. Based on how the medication works and what causes exercise-induced asthma, it is not likely that spiriva would give any significant relief to those symptoms.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) : Fever during pregnancy is of concern. It is very important to see your dr. Depending on the cause of the fever it could have implications on the fetus. It is very important to get look at. And find the source of the fever to get appropriately treated.
