I have full-body tremors while falling asleep, typically localized to diaphragm area upon waking. Initial 3 wks onset felt like virus and CNS damage.

Plan: If it started after viral infection with CNS involvement, it most likely means that you still not completely recovered. It's like "chills".? You need to see a doctor and possible blood work. ...Read more

Last night I had 7/10 pain in my left lower abdomen/groin area, and as I was laying flat on my back with my leg straight, my leg fell asleep. ?

Other activities?: had you exercised earlier or been for a long drive? Have you had this before? What happened when you awoke? Sometimes a muscle strain in the hip/groin/pelvis/back area can cause some nerve irritation. If it doesn't persist I wouldn't be concerned. ...Read more

I am 3 weeks and 5 days pregnant today. Experiencing some cramping in lower abdomen during day and @ night when asleep. Is this normal?

Hard to say: Your pregnancy is a very unique experience.Every woman has different feelings and we dr's should respect how you are affected.I often defer to your mother (because she knows you) to gauge these sensations.To have some discomfort-even early in the pregnancy-may be O.K. But if you think the sensation is abnormal a discussion with your ob-gyn is called for. ...Read more

Been having loose stool and stomach pain found on the left side of the abdomen and normally it will wake me up when I am asleep should I go to the doctor? This has been going on for 2 days already and I have been losing sleep because of it. I tried cuttin

If : If your symptoms are still present you need a medical evaluation. If they are gone you likely had a viral gastroenteritis (stomach bug), which commonly causes loose stool and abdominal pain. Important things to rule out are colitis, diverticulitis (both infections in the colon). After a thorough history, physical, and diagnostic testing, a doctor should be able to diagnose and treat you. Best of luck. ...Read more

Cyclic vomiter: This could be a neurologic issue like cyclic vomiting, which can present in kids and behaves this way. Stool retention is a problem for many kids but rarely triggers this pattern of vomiting. Review this pattern with your doc and consider seeing a Pedi GI person. ...Read more

Perhaps I can: offer some quite speculative but hopefully helpful comments.The only sense I can make of your question is if you mean IgE, or immunoglobulin E. Autoimmune disorders occur when the immune system mistakes body cells for harmful invaders and reacts to them. Reversing or controlling the process is very challenging; the immune reaction may be controlled but rarely eliminated. Keep working with your Doc ...Read more

Why do I have pain on both sides of abdomen near kidneys or possibly kidneys themselves only happens early morning time while sleeping ?

Posture: There are many possibilities but if it only occurs i that time i would suspect that sleeping posture is a problem. Are you a side sleeper?

Hi dr,iam 15 weeks pregnant,today I woke up sleeping on my abdomen.And iam worried Is there any problem with that?

No: No, not at this stage of pregnancy, as the fetus is encircled with amniotic fluid which cushions most compressions. Later in pregnancy (3rd trimester) we(OB MD's) ask patients to lie on their left side, and not your back, to prevent inferior vena cava compression(major blood vessel return to the heart) from compromising the baby's blood supply by the enlarged uterus. ...Read more

Need more info: Abdominal pain can be from many sources, some of them serious. "tight" pain makes me more worried as some bad problems can cause inflammation which results in guarding by the abdominal muscles.Hot and sweaty suggests that as well. Important info to give best answer is fever/chills, nausea/vomiting, any GI problems, change in stools, medications, etc. ...Read more

Could i be pregnant I have been having sharp pains in abdomen feeling neasus, sleeping bloated. I am on Depo-Provera but my last shot was 2 weeks late

If : If you were late on depo then there is a chance that you could have gotten pregnant. The odds of this occurring are not very high but there is a chance. If you missed a period you should definitely take a pregnancy test. If your periods are abnormal due to depo then you may have to see your doctor for blood testing. Your symptoms could be due to gas, upset stomach, mild case of food poisoning etc. Best of luck. ...Read more
