My 11 year old son says he has indigestion/heart burn. Says his heart/chest feels like its on fire? Help please!
Calcium carbonate.: Try giving him some oral antacids, such as tums or rolaids. These contain calcium carbonate, which neutralizes the hydrochloric acid made by the stomach. Do not exceed the recommended dose on the package of whatever you choose. If this is frequent, a pediatrician should evaluate your son for more serious digestive problems, which would require more extensive treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Citramag sachets colonoscopy 5yrs ago Ambulance crew said had "fainted sitting down".Friend saw me confused talking eyes open mumbling nonsense TIA?

My spouse has delusions abt me cheating on him. When hes angry, he harms me. But never feel remorse abt it after he calms down. Y is this so?
Very hard situation: This is a very dangerous situation, and you need to protect yourself. Do you have relatives (from your family, not your husband's) living nearby? In some cultures women are routinely abused, and this is not questioned. Still the dynamics lead to a very unstable, painful situation for the woman. I suggest talking with your doctor in private about this, and reaching out to your family for help. ...Read more
Tight/heavy chest. I'm worried I got poisoned by a pesticide man, (he sprayed near me) But my mom says its my OCD. Panic attack or Pyerthin Poisoning?
Poisoning not likely: It is unlikely for an adult to suffer pesticide poisoning just because the pesticide man sprayed nearby. Make sure there is good ventilation. If other adults in the same location are feeling fine, it's not likely that there is enough poison in the air to poison the people. In these circumstances, an OCD patient can look at what the other people are doing, to help verify to herself what is real. ...Read more
