Everything from gastritis to ulcers to appendicitis can cause your symptoms, and nobody can diagnose it online. ...Read more

You need to see your doctor about this very soon. You may have a stomach ulcer or other. Meanwhile try something like chewing a few Tums to see if it helps heart burn. You can repeat this 4 or 5 times per day. Also try Pepcid (famotidine) you can buy over the counter. See doctor asap. ...Read more

Why is it best 2 have my baby sleep on her back when she spits/throws up she chokes? U would think on stomach is best so the spit/throw up runs out?

It is not: That thinking led to belly sleeping for many years. Babies that spit/vomit /choke can turn their head. Back sleeping has led to a 40% reduction in crib death over the past decade. If you choose to go back to the higher risk method of belly sleeping, the risk is in your hands. ...Read more
