What could cause my 14 yo daughter to have abdominal cramping, bloating & nausea as well as joint and radiating neck pain after menstrual cycle?

What could cause my 14 yo daughter to have abdominal cramping, bloating & nausea as well as joint and radiating neck pain after menstrual cycle?

Maybe not related: I think maybe the joint and neck pain are not related to just having the period but may be something else. The neck and joint pain could be a virus but could also be serious,especially if there is a fever or rash going on. Bloating and cramping and nausea usually come before and during period so if they are still going on after they may be related or not to neck pain so I would see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a nervous feeling in the pit of my stomach, hr 115, sweating, off/on tingling in left side of arm/neck, amd bloating--possible heart attack?

Not likely: A heart attack is always possible, but given your age, medical history and symptoms is highly unlikely. Alternate conditions, such as panic attack, given your history of anxiety or hypoglycemia, for example, in the right clinical context are much more likely. Talk to your doc about your symptoms. ...Read more

I am 29 yr old female. I was recently put on Zoloft. It causes me extreme stomach discomfort and bloating but helps with anxiety. Can I take protonix (pantoprazole)?

Ask your doctor: Asking other physicians to give their blessings for you to take medication not prescribed by them is like a teacher asking your neighbor if they'd give permission to your son to go on a field trip. Do you think that's acceptable or would you take issue with the teacher who disrespected your authority as parent? Make sense? Give your doctor first dibs at correcting any problem caused by the Zoloft (sertraline) ...Read more
