Woke up in the middle of the night to my arm completely numb (happens a lot as I sleep in odd positions). Next evening, my arm was sore feeling. Can it cause damage when it "falls asleep" in the night?

Sometimes: What you describe is nerve compression perhaps related to odd sleeping position. The brain will generally make you move in order to relieve compression and therefore spare permanent damage. Sometimes those who are intoxicated or otherwise impaired may not have enough sense to relieve pressure and cause longer lasting or even permanent damage. ...Read more

I was talking a nap and awoke suddenly to the phone ringing. I sat up and my entire abdomen cramped up to the point of bringing me to my knees. Why?

I was talking a nap and awoke suddenly to the phone ringing. I sat up and my entire abdomen cramped up to the point of bringing me to my knees. Why?

Don't worry: A cramp is painful, but it can occur without reason. Your sleep interruption and jerking erect can cause a muscle pull. You may want to watch your bowel and bladder habits for a few days to see if there are other symptoms. If you have a history of abdominal surgery, take care if there is any spot of tenderness or bulge in the incision lines. ...Read more

Work up in the middle of the night with a headache and feeling like throwing up. I went to the restroom and threw up acidic and have dark stool. ?

I sometimes wake up and a soft lump seems to travel from the back of my throat to the middle of the roof of my mouth. I can feel it but it goes back?

It is probably uvula: It is probably the uvula that dangles from your palate off the reroof of your mouth. Sometimes it can get swollen or edematous and it feels strange when it touches the back of our tongue. Take a look in the mirror. If it appears large and swollen and is touching your tongue then you have your answer. Salt water gargles for several days can shrink it back down to outs normal size. If that does not work, then see your doctor. ...Read more

Consider these...: Difficulty swallowing ("dysphagia") can be distinguished as a "transfer" problem (difficulty moving food from mouth to top of esophagus), "transit" problem (difficulty moving food down esophagus & in your case thru stomach), "spasm", gerd (due to sphincter problems), or obstructive (webs, rings, strictures, ulcer, tumor). Stuck food may need to be removed--call your doctor now how next to proceed. ...Read more

Is it normal to wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep when your pregnant ?

Is it normal to wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep when your pregnant ?

Yes: You don't have to be pregnant to have this problem either. If you've slept long enough that the body has met it's minimal need for sleep it will be much harder to fall back asleep. If you have things on your mind that you worry about, that will make it harder too. And if the baby is active or giving you discomfort, that will also make it hard. ...Read more

Pain in my left arm and left leg in the evening after work and after i get up in the morning. Feeling tired in the mornings. How can this go away?

1st Rule out angina!: I'd have your internist evaluate you for the possibility of angina. Sometimes the narrowing of coronary arteries, from whatever reason, can lead to ischemia of heart muscle and a diffuse, difficult-to-pinpoint, aching pain can radiate in this distribution. The risk of this goes up with a positive family history for heart disease, or if you have elevated cholesterol or triglyceride; then proceed... ...Read more

Could i be pregnant at 40 years old and had my tubal ligation done 10 years ago because I have lower abdiomal and back pain? Dizziness, going to bathroom more regular, sleep alot, can't get comfortable at night time, feel full, my breat are big and heavy.

Maybe: Clamps, probably hulka or filshie clips are the easiest to reverse and should give you the highest success rates. Even at 40, you should have good odds. Just make sure that you find a fertility specialist that has a lot of experience and expertise in microsurgical tubal reversals, your partner has a normal sperm count, you have a normal fsh and amh level and noting else obvious is wrong. ...Read more

Eyes? Every morning almost when I get up and go to the bathroom I see lots of purple dots and get dizzy for a second then it stops

Sometimes when I have an IBS attack I go to the bathroom 12-15 times a day. I start getting dizzy and sometimes vomit. Could I die from dehydration?

Dehydrated for sure: It is sounding like a trip to the PCP or GI doc should be planned soon. 12-15 bowel movements (BMs) per day is way to much. There are decent treatments for IBS with medication, food elimination diets, probiotics, and even stress reliving strategies. OTC Imodium (loperamide) may help slow BMs in the meantime. Drink plenty of fluids. If your symptoms worsen, you may need to seek help from the ER. ...Read more
