Should I go to the hospital? I feel nausea, threw up several times at night, have chills, whole body aches, can`t sleep, extreme fatigue, and at time

Safe vs Sorry: It is well beyond the scope of any healthtap physician to render a diagnosis or suggest specific treatment. What we can educate those that pose their questions hoping to leave this encounter smarter than when they started it. Since I cannot make a diagnosis, logic dictates that we direct you to someone who can make that diagnosis. Visit your local er now. Good luck. Take care, dr. Woods. ...Read more

Sound like sinusitis: Some are more prone to sinus pain than others because they don't drain as easily. If your symptoms last longer than the others then you may be getting secondary bacterial infections in your sinuses which can cause fever and facial pain that is not symmetrical (more on one side or more in either forehead or cheek). Bacterial sinusitis requires different antibiotics longer than other infections. ...Read more

What are the causes of sleep problems and body aches?

Many factors: Body aches, by themselves, can cause sleep problems. Poor sleep is usually due to being aroused from sleep and this is often due to pain from some area of the body.
An over the counter pain medication such as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken one hour before retiring can help alleviate aches while sleeping.
A 'sleep study' can provide more data-see your doctor for more info. ...Read more

Family Doc: Your friendly family pcp is always the best place to start! You are tired, tired, tired, and have up and down back pain. Further history & physical are first; then bloodwork (cbc, cmp, tsh). If normal, you're not depressed, and fibromyalgia has been ruled out; then try the next level.

Non specific: These are very non specific symptoms. You might have caught a virus and might have been dehydrated. It is a good idea to see a primary doctor or urgent care if the symptoms persist longer. Eat and drink water or gatorade to hydrate you if you can in the mean time. If high fever worry about flu in winter. ...Read more

Body aches, no chill, no cold symptoms, eating well but sleep is disturbed. I suffer from anxiety, could it be linked? Ps. The aches go away at times

Body aches, no chill, no cold symptoms, eating well but sleep is disturbed. I suffer from anxiety, could it be linked? Ps. The aches go away at times

Probably linked but: There are many possible ways these could be linked. Anxiety tends to make any symptom worse but usually alone does not cause aches. Poor sleep can aggravate anxiety & cause aches- as dr. Krauser said, these symptoms are often seen in fibromyalgia, but this could be caused by lyme disease, magnesium deficiency, thyroid imbalances, food allergies etc. I advise seeing a holistic doctor- search abihm. ...Read more

30 yrs female, Medicine student, I feel laziness, body aches, attention deficit, short term memory. Hb 13.2, sleep cycle disturbed due to study overload.

Not enough sleep: It sounds like you're experiencing real symptoms from lack of sleep. Sleep is crucial to maintaining body functions, especially attention and memory, but also bodily functions like activity and energy level. I don't like to prescribe sleep meds, much better to try natural means so your brain can do what it's supposed to: rest and restore!
Hope you get a break soon! ...Read more

Probably OK: I am so glad that you decided to do something to improve your health. I can't quite make out what you meant by your current resting heart rate, but the other things you describe don't sound medically serious. If you haven't done so, I would suggest you contact your doctor and get a physical exam before resuming your biking. That way you can get advice and reassurance before your start again. ...Read more

What could cause confusion, anxiety, & body aches all at the same time? Have trouble concentrating, feel really tired, have trouble sleeping.

Lousy diet: Oxidation (combustion) of food substances provides cellular energy. Too many empty calories, especially all the man made sweet stuff, creates a relative vitamin deficiency like a car with bad spark plugs. Try eating god made food and leave all the sweets alone. ...Read more

Hello. I am a diabetic and my body is so sore it's been going on for a week now with the body aches till I can not sleep my legs get numb and the swell up I read up on it and found out if I take a aspirin it will help went and bought be pills been taking

Diabetic neuropathy: Sounds like you are dealing with diabetic neuropathy however swelling is not a part of the symptomatology of the neuropathy. You need to see your MD to see if your diabetes is affecting your kidneys too? You need to be on Lisinopril for that. Diabetic neuropathy is better controlled by Gabapentin and not aspirin.
