My: My best advice is for you to take a pregnancy test. If it is negative and your period does not come in one week repeat the test. Often times a period can be late or missed due to the stress of an infection, this would make sense since you have been sick.
Try to get some rest and not focus on waiting for your period, this will help it come soon if you are not pregnant.
Take care. ...Read more

What would be the cause of feeling sick after eating?

Nausea after food: There are a few things that could be at the source of these symptoms. If it is an isolated event, it could be bad food. If it is persistent, it could be inflammation of the stomach, a peptic or duodenal ulcer. Slowed digestion can also cause the food to sit in the stomach which could be a source as well. If these symptoms persist see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more

Stomach issue.: Without any additives to it (like drinking water) then the volume must be causing symptoms. An irritation or blockage in the upper digestive area would be responsible. This is assuming things are consistent. If it is only sometimes, or only with some beverages or water but not occuring with cheeto's, then a motility disorder or anxiety disorder. Otherwise, ulcer, reflux, or gastritis are possible. ...Read more

My boyfriend just had his gallbladder out on thur but hasn't been able to eat or even drink water without feeling sick he already lost 60lbs hasn't been able to eat since 3 days after thanksgiving

My boyfriend just had his gallbladder out on thur but hasn't been able to eat or even drink water without feeling sick he already lost 60lbs hasn't been able to eat since 3 days after thanksgiving

Your: Your boyfriend needs to have a follow up with the surgeon who performed the surgery. Typically by one week after such a surgery normal food can be tolerated. The fact that he has lost so much weight and is unable to tolerate food is worrisome. He may be dealing with a serious post-operative complication (adhesions, bowel obstruction, hernia etc.) his surgeon will hopefully get to the bottom of this. He may need an abdominal ultrasound or ct scan.
I hope he is better soon. ...Read more

Every time I drink a few beers I start feeling sick like I need to throw up. I was concerned to why it always happens.

Acid-peptic disorder: Alcohol (citrus, tobacco, caffeine, chocolate, peppermint, spicy foods, carbonated beverages) can be a direct stomach irritant. If you already have some irritation to the lining of your stomach, the beers can further irritate, give you gastritis, and result in nausea. You may need to treat acid over-production with zantac, (ranitidine) avoid trigger substances, or cut out the beer... ...Read more

Gastritis: You probably have inflammation of the stomach lining from excessive alcohol intake. Follow a bland diet with no alcohol or caffeine, and take mylanta or maalox 1/2 hour after meals and at bedtime. Drink flat ginger ale to relieve nausea. If your symptoms don't improve, see your physician for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I've been feeling sick most of the day; throwing up and a rash around my mouth and on my neck. I only felt bad after eating Subway& cookies though.

Food poisoning: May be some Subway food ingredient did not suit your stomach. If you don't have fever and the vomitings seem to be under control, this should pass in ~48 hrs with just oral fluids and restrictions of solid foods until better. If vomitings persist to cause dehydration, pl go to urgent care for immediate assessment. ...Read more

Toxin: Food poisoning from bacterial toxins cause almost immediate symptoms. Symptoms that should prompt one to seek medical attention: frequent vomiting and inability to replace fluids. Signs of dehydration (excessive thirst, little urination, weakness, lightheadedness), blood in vomit or stool, diarrhea for more than 3 days, fever higher than 101.5F, or extreme pain with abdominal cramping. ...Read more

What is good to drink or eat to stop vomiting basically feeling sick to the stomach?

What is good to drink or eat to stop vomiting basically feeling sick to the stomach?

Rehydration: In the strictest sense, you want to put the stomach to rest. However, simple fluids are best to keep from dehydrating. Children have less tolerance and reserves for fluid and electrolyte loss, so I recommend pedialyte for kids. Adults can tolerate vomiting better, so I recommend water, or mild, sweetened tea. I also use ginger ale or flat coke to control nausea. Foods should be avoided. ...Read more

Medicine or pregnanc: The first question for a woman your age is "could you be pregnant? " if you are not sure, buy a pregnancy test at a drugstore and find out.

I am getting the shakes and feeling sick and like it is hard to breath. It started yesterday when I drunk a energy drink and today when I drunk a mountain dew. I think I had a panic attack yesterday but im not sure

I am getting the shakes and feeling sick and like it is hard to breath. It started yesterday when I drunk a energy drink and today when I drunk a mountain dew. I think I had a panic attack yesterday but im not sure

Panic: Panic attacks are usually brief. They often last a couple of minutes to around ten minutes. Symptoms can include a sense of severe anxiety or panic as well as chest tightness or pain and a rapid or pounding heartbeat. There could also be areas of numbness or pins and needles type sensation. A person can experience hot flashes or chills and perspire heavily. There may be a tickle sensation in the stomach or nausea. When a person has a panic attack they may feel dizzy or faint and may become physically shaky. The person may fear that they are going crazy, they are out of control or that they are about to die. The sense that you have when you feel unreal may be a form of dissassociation called depersonalization. The sense that everything around you feels fake may be derealization.
Now, if you are having difficulty breathing and it is not in the context of panic, this needs to be medically evaluated. If you believe you are having panic attacks, it could be helpful to be evaluated by a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist. ...Read more

Think I have been drinking out ofa cup with mold in it fora week. Dishwasher broke so have been washing my cup by hand (no sponge just washing up liquid + water). Water tastes strange outofit and have been feeling ill. Could the mold getinto my bones?

Think I have been drinking out ofa cup with mold in it fora week. Dishwasher broke so have been washing my cup by hand (no sponge just washing up liquid + water). Water tastes strange outofit and have been feeling ill. Could the mold getinto my bones?

Not likely: Most molds (fungi) found in households don't cause infectious disease in immunocompetent individuals. However some molds can produce mycotoxins which can cause illness when moldy food is eaten. Rinsing your cup would wash away any food or toxin. It's possible the thought of drinking out of a moldy cup has been making you feel ill. See you Dr if symptoms persist. ...Read more
