See answer: Well you have a very broad question here. A good history is needed for both issues. Now it may be that you do not hydrate enough which can precipitate both headaches and constipation. But again this is just one thought. You need a good history and evaluation ...Read more

May be viral: Most stool-to-stool changes in color have little meaning. In most cases, stool color changes are not symptoms of disease. However, some changes, particularly if the changes are consistent over time and not present in only one stool, can be important. Diarrhea may cause green or yellow stools. I bet you are dehydrated. Take Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Benadryl and drink lots and lots of water. See your MD. ...Read more

Another common cause would be sinus congestion/infection. Evaluation should include a visit to an Ear/Nose and Throat physician, a blood pressure check, and above work-up is non-diagnostic then consideration of an MRI or CAT scan of the head. ...Read more

For 3 weeks, nausea, bad taste and excessive saliva in mouth and headaches. Bowel movement 1 time a week. Small, pellet like movement. What is this?

Eat and drink: You might no be eating enough fiber or enough food to move things along if there is something to move along. The bad taste etc could be from dehydration and not getting enough fluids.

I've been diagnosed with IBS and GERD, my stool is random almost never good shape (yellow). Also I seem to have headache, tingling/crawling skin, dry mouth. And PVC's when I lay what's related?

Unlikely all related: Your symptoms don't seem to be related to a single physical illness but may be related to anxiety or stress, which can affect widespread areas of the body. The mind-body connection is real. There is constant back and forth communication between your brain and your organs, not only by nerve connections, but also by neuropeptides generated by both, which travel in your blood>http://bit.

Seen doc mutiple times, ct scan normal, I have dry hair that's lifeless, throat pain, burps, green stool, frequent peeing, headaches after sugar? Help

Nonspecific symptoms: Assuming routine blood work is normal, then frequent urination is not due to any disease. Headache after eating sugar is very unlikely to be due to any disease, especially if routine blood work is normal. Stool is green when it moves quickly through the gut. That can be caused by many things, but not necessarily serious. Sore throat is common and usually not serious. Dry hair usually not serious. ...Read more
