Cocaine abuse. Got rash base penis and like foliculitis on upper legs. Swolen glands heartburn cough comes and goes and I'm always tired please help?

Is this from: withdrawal or continuous abuse-pattern usage? It makes a difference because with the former, some medical attention and continued sobriety portends resolution of symptoms; whereas, with the latter, the symptoms likely will stay the same or get worse. Cocaine abuse is potentially deadly in both the short-and-long-term, so SERIOUSLY consider getting help and quitting. You may need medical help

Hiatal Hernia: Hiatal hernia will slowly stretch and may give you symptoms. It may run in families. If your parents have GERD, then you may develop GERD. No need to do anything until you have symptoms. Hiatal hernias are easily fixed.

May not be a problem: Many people have hiatal hernias without ever having problems. Anything that increases your intraabdominal pressure a lot, such as doing strenuous activity or coughing a lot, or obesity, can cause the hernia to get bigger. Decreasing those activities will reduce your risk of symptoms. Once you have the hernia, you can't prevent it. It won't resolve on its own.

Can toothpaste containing peppermint oil give you gerd?

Can toothpaste containing peppermint oil give you gerd?

Perhaps: Peppermint oil is a smooth muscle relaxant and can lead to relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter. I suspect with typical tooth brushing, little to no toothpaste is swallowed so it seems unlikely.

Diagnosed with small Hiatal Hernia. No GERD at all. What are the chances it grows and gives me GERD in future. 23yo 145lbs. It hapnd frm Hevy lifting?

Diagnosed with small Hiatal Hernia. No GERD at all. What are the chances it grows and gives me GERD in future. 23yo 145lbs. It hapnd frm Hevy lifting?

Yes It can develop.: Heavy lifting doesn't always have too much to do with hiatal hernia as opposed to a groin hernia. A small hiatal hernia can certainly get bigger. The GERD or the reflux can be prevented or minimized by paying attention to your lifestyle in avoiding the late or the large meals and also in using an extra pillow when needed. Watch your weight.

I have GERD last month and my doc give me omeprazole 20mg. After taking it for 14 days I felt good but after a week my GERD came back. Wat wil I do?

Longer course: Your doctor may need to prescribe to you a longer course of Omeprazole i.e. 1-2 months. It is safe to do so. Otc drugs are always mandated to have a limited time of use until you get in to see your doc.

I have costochondritis, the dr. Is giving me colchicine o.6 mg for the pain. I also have gerd, will that medicine hurt my stomach?

I have costochondritis, the dr. Is giving me colchicine o.6 mg for the pain. I also have gerd, will that medicine hurt my stomach?

Gout?: Colchicine is used to treat gout. I have no knowledge of any benefit for its use in the treatment of costochondritis. Costochondritis is usually treated with anti-inflammatories, oral steroids, therapy or steroid injections. Usually resolves in 4 months but can become chronic. Colchicine does not have a high incidence of gastric pain or gastritis.

My daughter is 9 years old. She has gerd, 3 months back she was on Prilosec OTC for 14 days. But now she has again gerd. Can I give her Prilosec again or prevacid (lansoprazole). Please respond asap we are out of home?

Needs to see Dr.: Unfortunately, giving definitive rx advice over the computer is very difficult without your daughter getting an exam by a dr. For the time being, certainly avoid all trigger foods that can cause gerd-see the web site: http://www. Gerd-diet.Com/ then get her into see the dr. As soon as possible. Best wishes.

Why would somwone 37 be diagnosed with GERD LPR diverticulosis chronic gastritis tublar adnoma and hyperplastic polyps. Did my system just give up?

Why would somwone 37 be diagnosed with GERD LPR diverticulosis chronic gastritis tublar adnoma and hyperplastic polyps. Did my system just give up?

Clarification: Diverticulosis is very common, and most people live with it without any problem. Gerd is very common, just try to understand what triggers it, and take medication when you need it. Chronic gastritis might be due to h. Pylori infection which is very common outside of us. Hyperplastic polyp is due to chronic irritation. There is no reason to think that your system is broken. Tubular needs follow up.

Can hiatus hernia or GERD give you chest-pain arm, neck as well as jaw pains?

Can hiatus hernia or GERD give you chest-pain arm, neck as well as jaw pains?

Hiatal hernia: And gerd can cause heartburn, often mistaken for chest pain of cardiac origin. But it does not cause neck, jaw, or arm pain. So it is entirely possible that you have two origins of your pain, esophagus and heart. You need to see a doctor to make sure you are not going to have a heart attack.

My GERD's getting bad, giving me a chronic cough, but doc appointment far away. Any OTC recommended? Tums (calcium carbonate) no longer help.

My GERD's getting bad, giving me a chronic cough, but doc appointment far away. Any OTC recommended? Tums (calcium carbonate) no longer help.

Here's a trick: Elevated the head of your bed on cinder blocks. See if this doesn't help. Ask your pharmacist about meds that suppress acid. Best wishes.

Empty stomach: Before exercise you should have your stomach empty in order to avoid GERD. Weight lifting is particularly bad for GERD if the stomach is not empty

Can hiatal hernia or GERD give you chest-pain, arm, neck or jaw pains?

Maybe: Small hiatal hernia is usually don't cause any symptoms at all. Large hiatal hernias can cause chest pain, difficulty swallowing, chest pressure, weight loss, and anemia from bleeding ulcers. Arm, neck, and jaw are not typical. See your doctor for a history and examination to find out more.
