I'm 34wpregnant & having indigestion and GERD afternoon or nighttime. Causing me to feel faint, breathless, dizzy, cannot stand long hours. What can I eat?

I'm 34wpregnant & having indigestion and GERD afternoon or nighttime. Causing me to feel faint, breathless, dizzy, cannot stand long hours. What can I eat?

Amount: Try small meals at more frequent interval-"grazing". Your pregnancy compresses your stomach which can't tolerate being filled very much so try to keep the volume small. What you're actually eating isn't particularly important. Don't lie down for 1-2 hours after eating or drinking; maintaining upright posture favors passage of digested food downward through your duodenum instead of your esophagus. ...Read more

I took prolia 4 months ago. After 2m I felt dizziness, excess gas in stomach, indigestion, mumbness in arms, loss of appetit and nausea, is it normal?

I took prolia 4 months ago. After 2m I felt dizziness, excess gas in stomach, indigestion, mumbness in arms, loss of appetit and nausea, is it normal?

Not normal: Hi. No, those symptoms certainly aren't normal, but they may have nothing to do with the Prolia. Have the symptoms persisted for the last 2 months (since they began)? If symptoms resolve, a test of the hypothesis that Prolia is causally related is to see if they recur with the next dose. If the symptoms were too bad to risk another Prolia dose, there are other good osteoporosis drugs available. ...Read more

Dizzy, nauseus and heartburn. Ultrasound looked normal but could I still be pregnant and not able to be detected yet!? Help we are trying for a baby

Take a test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
