You: You may be reacting to any one of a number of things. Charcoal grills produce poisonous carbon monoxide gas, so you need to use it in a well ventilated area. When meats are cooked on a grill; the fat that drips below onto the charcoal & can form polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (pahs). The pah rises with the smoke and becomes absorbed in the meat as well as being inhaled. Heterocyclic amines (hca’s) can form in meat due to the heat released during grilling. Charcoal contains coal dust and limestone which can also become airborne and can be inhaled. Patients who are treated with activated charcoal can have an allergic reaction with hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
I suggest you keep your distance from grills and grilled meats. Stay well. ...Read more

2 weeks &menses don't stop, secod weeks they are brown &black clots. Pain in pelvic&back, vomiting, dizziness, bloating&gases. Is a5, 5cm ovarian cyst cause?

Maybe: The cyst may be producing greater amounts of estrogen, but other things /causes need to be checked. Your profile says you are 62 years old - if that's the case then you need to see a doctor and have a sonogram & biopsy (at a minimum). I would need more history to give a better assessment about the causes. In most cases, a "simple" 5.5cm cyst has a good chance of going away on its own; 62yrs:worrie ...Read more

Upset stomach?: A simple tummy ache with nausea, vomiting, gas, or diarrhea, whether at home or traveling, may be from a virus infection, bacteria infection, or contaminated food.
