Have it evaluated.: Pain in that area could be due to trauma (fracture, tendon or ligamentous tear, arthritis), infection, inflammation, metabolic conditions (gout) musculoskeletal (bony over growth) or biomechanical abnormality, or neurologic conditions (neuropathy). A thorough history and physical exam and possibly laboratory and radiology exams could determine the cause. Have it evaluated by a professional. ...Read more

Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

It : It sounds like you went over 24 hours without eating, which could certainly cause low blood sugar. This, combined with your medication regimen could have caused this extreme fatigue. If diabetes runs in your family, your risk of developing the disease is higher. However, experiencing hypoglycemia does not necessarily mean you have diabetes. Diabetes is diagnosed by blood glucose tests that show a trend of high blood sugars in the blood plasma (over 126). It is manifested by high blood sugar in the blood and low performance of Insulin (which is produced by the body to lower the blood sugar). Symptoms of high blood sugar include extreme thirst/hunger, blurred vision, frequent urination, dry mouth, poor wound healing, recurrent infection and fatigue. See your doctor if you notice any of these signs of high blood sugar. ...Read more

You should be fine: but always read package instructions before taking any medication. This package probably said take ONE pill at a time. If you didn't have any stomach discomfort, you are lucky. WIth any of the NSAIDs be sure you have food in your stomach. Good luck. ...Read more

What is safer? Celebrex (celecoxib) or aleve?

What is safer? Celebrex (celecoxib) or aleve?

Celebrex (celecoxib): Depends. Both are nsaids. Celebrex (celecoxib) is primarily a cox-2 inhibitor so it was originally thought to be less likely to cause reflux, stomach ulcers. Long term it has not shown any difference a year out. Both have a cardiac warning, although at least theoretically aleve(naproxen) would be less likely to cause this. Short term both are fine as long as you do not have and kidney or heart disease. ...Read more
