Check LFT: You should check with your prescribing doctor regarding the status of your liver. I would periodically check liver function and ammonia anyway but i tend to err on the side of caution. The earliest sign of liver problems is loss of appetite followed by itchiness. I would not take more than 325 mg of APAP every 8 hours. ...Read more

2 nights ago had Gerd while asleep some acid and food went into airway I coughed it up. No fever no colored conjestion just clear mucus 2wk post cold?

It's ok: If you're having this bad of GERD symptoms, consider a consultation with a gastroenterologist,. Ask about endoscopic and surgical therapies that can actually treat the GERD, rather than just suppressing acid. Hoep this helps! ...Read more

I was diagnosed with silent gerd.  I had post nasal drip and hoarsness.  A few days later i experienced sinus congestion and 100.2 fever.  I  currentl?

Sinus infection?: With sinus congestion, post nasal drip, fever, I would wonder if you have a sinus infection. You may need antibiotics, so see your doctor. In the meantime, "Simply Saline" spray, a nettie pot, guaifeniscen, may all help. If you feel severely ill, go to the ER or urgent care center. GERD can be responsible for hoarseness, choking sensation, and a range of other symptoms OTHER than heartburn. ...Read more

Viral?: Neither ibs nor gerd is associated with a fever. But if your symptoms get worse or persist for many days, do consult your doctor. I suspect what you may have is likely a viral infection at your age, pregnancy is always a consideration but there should not be a fever associate with it (if you have indeed measured your temperature and it was >100 degree). ...Read more

29. mild chest pains on the left side that extend into my armpit and occasionally upper arm. fatigued. have GERD. no fever. resting ~70 BPM (elevated)?

Non cardiac: You are not telling if this pain is associated with activity . . I am going to assume it happens at rest . You are probably having Esophageal Spasm which for all practical purposes resembles cardiac chest pain . . See your doctor for evaluation , since we do not know what your risk factors are . Eliminate fats caffeine , alcohol & large meals . Start on Omeprazole . Elevate the head of your bed . ...Read more

Can i give my 15 month old peptobismol? She keeps throwing up with no signs of fever or illness. We have checked food allergies, ans GERD (taking zantac (ranitidine) 2x daily). I cannot figure out what's wrong :-(

I wouldn't: Pepto has salycilates which we don't give tom kids under 16 because of an association with liver failure/death (Reye syndrome).Wet burps that do not result in problems with hydration often decrease with age as the reflux improves.If the kid is growing well. I would leave it alone. ...Read more

What might burnt orange/red bowel movements mean in someone with GERD and gastropresis, also lots of cramping, nausea, and low grade fever indicate?

What might burnt orange/red bowel movements mean in someone with GERD and gastropresis, also lots of cramping, nausea,  and low grade fever indicate?

Many reasons: Discolored stool can be a sign of poor digestion, infection, or bleeding. May not have anything to do with your GERD or gastroparesis. I'm more concerned about the cramping, nausea and low grade fever - which might be a sign that you have an infection. I would recommend you make an appointment to see your doctor and be further checked out. ...Read more

Sharp throat pain when swallowing, turning head. 2 days later sore throat on left w/ swollen lymph node. No fever or cough. I have my tonsils and GERD?

Pharyngitis: This may be Strep throat, viral infection, conceivably due to your GERD, or of other causes. If acute you should be tested for Strep and treated if positive or if the physical findings are highly suspicious. Cannot possibly diagnose this over the internet. ...Read more

My GERD was under control with Prilosec. Three days after the stomach flu hit it's awful again. Is there a connection?

My GERD was under control with Prilosec. Three days after the stomach flu hit it's awful again. Is there a connection?

Give it some time.: A "stomach flu" can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and "heartburn" that can mimic your usual GERD, and it can be so relentless that your Prilosec is simply not helping right now. It's doubtful that this stomach flu in the short term would have worsened your GERD for the long term. Give it a few more days and hopefully you'll start feeling better in this regard. ...Read more

Have had chest infections problems since October had flu jab non smoker but have asthma GERD arthritis ckd now hVe what seems like fluorescent urine ?

Need good physician: With your multiple medical problems, each of which should be manageable, and your multiple medications, you need a single competent primary care physician to supervise you and offer the reassurance and guidance about a hanging-on chest cold (?) that we can't. "Fluorescent urine" is almost always medication or food coloring -- taking vitamin B2? ...Read more

I have a really bad sore throat and discomfort swallowing. Runny nose and flem in my throat. Is this due to the cold/flu i currently have or my GERD?

I have a really bad sore throat and discomfort swallowing. Runny nose and flem in my throat. Is this due to the cold/flu i currently have or my GERD?

Cold: I am sorry that you're suffering with this. From the sounds of your symptoms I believe this to be an upper respiratory infection commonly called a cold. You should drink lots of fluid get some rest and take it over-the-counter cold medications as needed. It may be somewhat due to the Gerd. ...Read more

Past few days I have discomfort above my navel. Stomach feels like it has to growl but doesn't. Lots of gas both ends, heartburn. No fever or vomiting?

Consult PCP: Excess upper intestinal gas may be due to swallowing more than usual amount of air, while eating, drinking or chewing gum and it is a normal effect of bacteria on food, we eat. Bacterial overgrowth also leads to intestinal gas and cause bloating, belching and abdominal or stomach discomfort. Consult your PCP, and he/ she may refer you to Gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Sudden severe onset heartburn and pain nausea and fevers with chills ?

Gastroenteritis?: If this gets much worse get to a doctor and be evaluated. If diarrhea begins along with vomiting stay well hydrated and if you cannot, get to an ER. If the fever becomes worse go and get seen. In short, not enuf info to make a definitive recommendation, but this sounds as if it is any worse you should definitely be seen. Hope you clear up soon. ...Read more

I suspect I have a food borne illness. But I have no fever. And as much as I would like to vomit or use the toilet, neither one of those is happening. It's been about 40 hours since the first symptom of heartburn started. Should I ride it out or induce vo

Food Born Illness: Usually foodborne illnesses hit fairly rapidly. Vomiting is not going to really help you very much. Ride this one out. Probiotics may be helpful as well so pick up some of those at any drugstore and take them twice-daily for a couple of weeks. Things should get back to normal fairly soon. If not see your doctor. ...Read more

If continues see MD.: Sometimes you can have residual inflammation for a short period after an infection heals. However certainly if it continues you should see your physician for an evaluation to be sure nothing else is going on. Also, were you taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory agents for the virus, which may have upset your stomach. ...Read more
