Symptoms: nausea, stomachache, diarrhea, extreme sweating, faintness, lasted about 30 min. Food poisoning? Or could overeating have been the cause?

Maybe, but maybe not: A 30 minute bout of diarrhea, along with nausea, tummy ache, and sweating, usually means the person ate something that reacted in a way with his or her body, to make the body want to rapidly expel (poop out) everything. Sometimes this is due to food poisoning (toxins in food), rapid over-eating, certain food oils/ingredients that make bowels move, taking medications with laxative effects, etc... ...Read more

My brother got CT and ECG scan, doctor said he's fine no problems. Yet he is dizzy, fatigue, feeling, faint, and diarrhea. Pain in head when sleep?

Further evaluation: A ct scan shows no structural problems ; ECG shows no arrhythmias but this does not mean he has no problems. There are many possible causes that need evaluation- intestinal parasites, food allergies, other chronic infections, thyroid imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, environmental toxins etc. Ideally he should see a holistic doc or at least one who will consider and test for these possibilities. ...Read more

36wks vomiting, loose stools, all day consistent terrible lower back pain.. 5cm 50% effaced. Should I go to l&d. Could this be labor?

Go to L;D: If you are vomiting that means you are unlikely to keep down fluids, in which case, you likely might need an IV and to receive IV fluids. It sounds like a viral illness, meaning that typically self-limited and will go away in 12-24 hours, but go to l;d so you can be evaluated for dehyrdation. Sometimes nausea and vomiting is assc with labor, but go to l;d and find out. Good luck! ...Read more

Having H2S burps (egg smell). No vomit or loose stools. Third time in 3 wk. Poss pregabalin cause? Other cause? Will charcoal tablets help?

Could be normal: Foul belching that smells like that could be a normal variant or related to your diet. However, there are conditions that can cause this. A gastric beazor (collection of food particles in the stomach) or gastroparesis can produce this problem. You should see your primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist to look into these possibilities. ...Read more

Recently, I had two occasions where after eating beans I either had loose stools and/or vomiting. Is this an allergic reaction or food poisoning?

Aller allerg: The title wouldn't let me type in allergic. You are likely having an anaphylactic reaction to beans and need to avoid them. One need to rule out peanut allergy as well and you need to consider having epinephrine autoinjector at all times in case of accidental exposure to beans. Consult an allergist since you likely have nasal and/or respiratory allergies as well. ...Read more

I've been having intestinal gurgling on and off for a week. Occasional mild nausea, no vomiting. Loose stools and gas pain too. Any ideas?

Sounds like you: Probably have a stomach virus. Try some pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) for relief-it will turn your stools black in color. You can take pepto as long as you're not pregnant. Eat a bland diet next few days, or even clear liquids (like gatorade) and see if this helps. If symptoms persist, see your Dr. ...Read more

I hav barretts oesophagus & vomit a lot, bile acid malabsorption with loose stools recently been getting a fever after eating a meal what cud this be?

Fever: Your fevers are nonspecific and not clearly related to the barretts or malabsorption syndrome as neither of these conditions are usually accompanied by post prandial fever. Are other symptoms like abdominal pain, sweats and chills or cough also occurring then? Infection or noninfectious inflammation are to be considered. See your MD for further evaluation and testing. ...Read more

Vomiting diarrhea freezing cold pains all over?

Probable infection.: This could be a gastroenteritis, probably viral, but could also be due to eating bad food or other reasons. Initially, the most important thing is to not become dehydrated. I would not eat solid food, but I would try to drink as many liquids as you're able to tolerate. If you feel that you're getting dehydrated, or if your fever persists more than 24 to 36 hours, then you should see your doctor. ...Read more
