Elevate bed: Elevate the head of your bed. Avoid spivey foods and caffeine. Simethicone can help. Frequent small meals but nothing for about 3 hours before bed. All of these can help and remember that it will end and will all be worth it when you are holding that beautiful baby. ...Read more

Why do I get nausea every night? Me and my body are getting tired of having to take pepto bismol or Tums to deal with it, just to sleep. :(

Why do I get nausea every night? Me and my body are getting tired of having to take pepto bismol or Tums to deal with it, just to sleep. :(

Gastritis or GERD: I suspect you may have either gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) or gerd (gastroesophageal reflux disease or acid reflux). Diet (caffeine, chocolate, alcohol), tobacco, medications (ibuprofen for example), and infections (h. Pylori) can all be possible causes for the inflammation. I would suggest you see your primary care doctor to discuss symptoms and possible treatment options. ...Read more

Went to bed with terrible stomach pain and nausea. I took two Tums and two extra strength Tylenol. I woke up at midnight still in terrible pain so I took 4 ibuprofen. Then I woke up at 2am and was still feeling miserable so I took a xanax. I fell back

No ibuprofen: Could be indigestion caused by increased acid in your digestive tract. Ibruprofen, naprosyn, advil- all of the class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, would be the wrong choice for medication. Try alka selzer, baking soda or water or peptobismal. If persists, ER visit might be indicated as there might be something going on such as appendicitis or an acute problem in your abdomen. ...Read more

Light brown/yellowish stool for week or so, indigestion, pain in lower stomach, nausea, pain in sides, have acid reflux, been taking Tums frequently, some pain in upper & lower back, pain in neck.

Need to be examined: Sounds like you have several problems and I doubt they are all related. I could give you a list of all the possible causes of any of your complaints but it won't be helpful. A physician would listen to your complaints, take a history of past medical problems and ask you numerous pointed questions to point towards a diagnosis. He would then examen you. All of which we cannot do here on HT. ...Read more
