Can Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cause the cause gerd, stomahe aches stomache polyps, constipation?

Not typically: The only one of those that I would think would be due to Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is the constipation, since Benadryl (diphenhydramine) has a "drying" effect on the body.

Can GERD cause sudden sever nausea + dizziness+ weakness. I take sompraz l at that time. If I take it regularly then it cause constipation & bloating?

Can GERD cause sudden sever nausea + dizziness+ weakness. I take sompraz l at that time. If I take it regularly then it cause constipation & bloating?

Careful, behaviors: All issues you mention, including gerd, are symptoms & can have many "causes". We are embodied souls/minds driving a complex engineered body. While symptoms are physical, causes/control may include multiple levels, including fear/anger. Sompraz-l is a proton pump inhibitor: reduces stomach secretion of hcl acid? 1000 fold (range: million fold) & side-effects you state are reported. Look further.

Cure Constipation: Constipation can cause many problems. Treat with plenty of water, and high-fiber diet. Metamucil (psyllium husks), seeds, and high-fiber vegetables like carrots and celery. Increase activity of your colon with mild stimulants like prunes (may require several handsfull). Stay regular (i.e., at least one easy bowel movement per day). Magnesium (1, 000-2, 000 mg per day may also help).

I am experiencing constipation, heartburn (gerd) (worsened by: lying flat) and stomach cramps. Pale stools.?

Pale stools: Abdominal discomfort with passage of pale stools may be seen with blockage in the biliary tract and gall bladder by a stone. Complications from gerd won't cause pale stools. If symptoms persist consult your physician or a gastroenterologist for evaluation and appropriate tests will be ordered in order to make a diagnosis.

Chronic constipation Gerd Gas Age 31 years?

Chronic constipation Gerd Gas Age 31 years?

Question: You have constipation and gas? Your question is not clear. You can use OTC antiacid mediciation and I strongly suggest a GI evaluation. If you have already been diagnosed with GERD, you will need to be tested for h. pylori and treated with PPI therapy.

I have GERD & IBS w/severe chronic constipation. What is the best Rx for GERD without increasing constipation and inducing other side effects?

GERD: All of the medications have some side effects, usually mild. I would probably recommend starting with Omeprazole over the counter. I would be glad to advise by consult if further help is needed

GERD.: The symptoms you have described could be consistent with gastroesophageal reflux disease. Given your age, it would be fine to trial a one month course of an over-the-counter medication like Protonix or Prevacid. Should this medication not work, or should your symptoms worsen during the month trial, then an evaluation with a gastroenterologist would be wise.

Have GERD, it was getting better now I have belly pain relieved by going, rumbling of stomach, constipation, could this be IBS or something worse?

See a doctor: Ibs is an entity of exclusion. It could be this, but before simply diagnosing one's self with ibs, i'd suggest you see a gastroenterologist for further evaluation.

I've been experiencing on and off bouts of constipation and diarrhea. Also intestinal cramps. Family history of celiac disease. E.R MD thinks Gerd?

Many possibilities.: GERD doesn't explain it. Constipation can though. Sometimes if you are constipated you get so backed up that eventually it comes out forcefully and fast (i.e. like diarrhea). If you stay regular it could go away (prune or pear juice, senna, docusate, miralax (polyethylene glycol) -- all over the counter). Take even if you start going to make sure it doesn't build up again.

I have hypercalcemia and 4 small brain lesions. Doctors aren't sure what's wrong. Symptoms: constipation, dizziness, slight arm tremor, gerd. I'm 21.

HyperCa: Your symptoms are typical of hypercalcemia. I would recommend that you seek consultation with a specialist: endocrinology for sure, and probably a neurologist for the brain lesions.
