The soda or seasoning maybe signs of gerd/gastritis/ulcer although there maybe overlap. You may need lab testing and diagnostic testing. Try avoiding food triggers if able. ...Read more

May use a duclolax suppository 30 minutes after the meal to stimulate evacuation. Should try to train yourself to have a bowel movement at least every 48 hours. Can see a physicatrist or a GI doctor for a more comprehensive eval and bowel program design. ...Read more

For two weeks I haven't felt hunger or thirst but I drink water and eat once a day anyway. My doctor does not know what it is. I took blood test today?
Watch this: Relax, Fred. This is fairly common and means nothing. You can reassure yourself about your physical health by going a day or so just drinking water; you'll get hungry. I suspect there's something going on in your life that may be making you sad; if you start having a sleep disturbance or sad moods, this may be dysthymia / depression for which early treatment's important. ...Read more
My urine is a neon yellow color and I don't take vitamins. What could cause this and should I be worried? I drink water and eat ice all day long
Urine color: Normal urine color ranges from very pale yellow/or clear (when it is very dilute) to dark yellow, almost brown when it is extremely concentrated (i.e. You're not drinking enough fluids). The color is affected by certain dyes in foods, a common one is due to the riboflavin vitamin you mentioned. As long as it continues to vary in this range, being mostly yellow, there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more
I have a big hangover. Everytime I drink water, I vomit it (just yellow liquid). Should I force myself to drink more water/eat even if im vomiting it?
Slow Down, Hound!: First of all, that hangover is telling you (if you'll listen) that you've done some damage to your brain and liver. It's a message of what happens with excessive drinking over time. As for the water, there's no point if you just vomit it back up. If it's really bad get some Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) at the drug store. Yes, take water or an electrolyte-frequently in small amounts and by that I mean 1-2Tbs every 3-5 min ...Read more

When using the restroom, there was a long bright red streak on the stool. I've had hemmies for a while. I don't drink much water/eat fiber. Hurts. Help?
Hemi?: I think what you're referring to are hemorrhoids which are nothing more than prolapsed veins. Which does occur often in the low fiber diet. Simple measures to increase your fiber such as over-the-counter preparations or even just increasing vegetables and fruits. However, it can also be a warning sign of underlying problems. Always check in with your healthcare provider. ...Read more

I've noticed that the upper part of my stomach sticks out when I eat and if I don't eat it stays flat. I drink water and I eat healthy. What's wrong?
Thin?: If you are very thin, this may be normal. When I was a student, you could always see the food in my stomach after a meal.
