Maybe,maybe not: We generally describe gerd as the return of stomach contents into the esophagus to the degree that heartburn, fussiness or weight loss develops. Since a dry burp has the same mechanics, it is not much of a stretch to say all kids have some reflux, but only some of them symptoms. It can be transient as part of a gut virus, or longer term.I find mild disease common but significant disease rare. ...Read more

Consider these : Some patients have tremors in older family members and may inherit "familial essential tremors". Hyperthyroidism could cause this, and some medications cause tremors. Unlikely, that dehydration can cause, but some b vitamin deficiencies could do this, and sometimes, other central nervous problems exist. Check with your doctor. ...Read more

Hi. Male and 40. Couldn't orgasm tonight.  Recently went to ER for uti and dehydration. On Bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) trazedone, and Prozac. Do these drugs cause this?

Possible: Both Prozac (fluoxetine) and Trazodone can cause decreased libido as side effects. You are taking two antidepressants. Not clear why this is necessary. Suggest you discuss with prescribing doctor to review these meds and consider lower dose(s). I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

I was treated for gastroenteritis 3 days ago and was very dehydrated.  i was on a drip and received medication. I've had bad headaches for 2 days constantly now, at the back of my head. I've been drinking a lot of water and energy drinks.

Gastroenteritis.: While the headaches may be a part of being dehydrated, short term follow-up with your regular doctor, within the next couple of days, would be wise. And water and energy drinks might oppose each other, wherein the energy drinks may prevent you from truly rehydrating. Just stick with the water for now. Nothing with caffeine, like energy drinks or coffee. ...Read more

Day 4 heart skipping and palpitation stress test came back good and im not dehydrated what could be wrong? No alcohol, caffeine or drugs. On monitor

Day 4 heart skipping and palpitation stress test came back good and im not dehydrated what could be wrong? No alcohol, caffeine or drugs. On monitor

Hard to say: You say you're on a monitor. I am assuming the results are not back yet. If the skip beats and palpitations occur while you are on the monitor then a record is made and your cardiologist should be able to get a better idea of what is going on. Many have ways for you to mark when you have symptoms, too. An electrophysiologist (heart rhythm specialist) should be able to help. ...Read more

Dehydration : Dehydration can occur easily when a patient has an infection. An infection can cause a fever, even when the patient isn't always aware, and the skin flushes, with more fluid evaporating. In addition, if a patient isn't feeling well, they often don't drink or eat as much as they typically do. Patient's who are on other medications, including cardiovascular medications, can be more sensitive to the effects of dehydration. Signs of allergic reaction to a medication usually includes rash that is usually hives, swelling, itching, or shortness of breath. ...Read more
