Acid Reflux: There can be many symptoms for acid reflux. Burning in the abdomen is the most common, and is generally known as heartburn. If you experienced this symptom, especially when laying down, you most likely have acid reflux. If you have any issues with anxiety, these symptoms may worsen your anxiety and produce a tingling sensation over your body. You should see your family practice physician.

My head hurts, body feels sore (not achy), boobs are sore, coughed all night, no fever. Acid reflux is bad?

Infection: I would suggest that you have a viral infection. Increase you fluid intake and try tylinol 500 mg, two every four hours and you may need to take a ppi like Prilosec for your reflux. If no improvement in 36 hours see a doctor as you may have flu.

Prilosec PPI: Proton pump inhibitors is used for the treatment of conditions such as ulcers, gerd. Prilosec can give you symptoms of low magnesium: jerking muscle movements, muscle cramps, fast heart rate. If this is the case I recommend to see your pcp asap.

Gastroenteritis or?: Most cases of viral gastroenteritis are mild, self-limited, and not life threatening. These resolve on their own with supportive care (drink fluids to prevent dehydration, eat moderately as tolerated, as needed analgesia). In special cases (newborns, elderly, debilitated) hospitalization may be required to provide IV fluids and to support co-morbid medical conditions.

I have chronic acid reflux, just got over fever/nausea, throat burns as I swallow food/water, sulphur burps, food feels stuck. Remedies/meds don't work?

For now...: Try Prilosec otc, 1 pill 45 min before breakfast daily for 2 weeks. Chronic acid reflux should be thoroughly evaluated with an egd, upper endoscopy, to make sure you aren't damaging your esophagus. Chronic medications may be needed. See a GI doc for a complete evaluation.

My throat's pain level is 9 @ night & about a 1 or 2 level during the day. Lasted 4 days. Also, runny nose. No fever, no acid reflux. Why?

My throat's pain level is 9 @ night & about a 1 or 2 level during the day. Lasted 4 days. Also, runny nose. No fever, no acid reflux. Why?

SEE UR DOCTOR ASAP!: This is not normal to have that high level pain, and other symptoms of runny nose, and skin discoloration above ankles, and insufficient Vitamin D3 levels. You need to be seen by your docto to go over how long, what is causing your pain that is interfering with your health & possibly put you in jeopardy. Where is the pain? What caused it? Need to get to the bottom of this SOON. Please report back!
