Nausea & Vomitting: Those symptoms are worrisome, particularly after two days and if you're not keeping down any food or liquid. This can lead to dehydration which can be very serious, even after only a couple of days. You should go to an emergency center for evaluation and possible IV fluids. Possibilities include stomach flu, pregnancy, food poisoning, appendicitis, gallstones, stomach ulcer, gastroparesis, etc. ...Read more

I have been sick and i had dinner and vomited what should I do?

Stomach rest: You may have had stomach flu (vomiting or vomiting + diarrhea, abdominal pain, etc.). If that was a one time incident, drink fluids if you can keep them down, go to blend diet (bananas, crackers, steamed rice) for the rest of the day and see how you are feeling then. Slowly return to normal provided there is no repeated vomiting or abdominal discomfort. ...Read more

Depression: Hi. Not all depression responds adequately to psychology. I see you are treated with antidepressants, which are often very beneficial. However, Lexapro and Cymbalta (duloxetine) work by similar and mostly overlapping mechanisms, so there may be a better drug regimen for you. If you are feeling like hurting yourself, or worse, please seek immediate medical attention. ...Read more

Shaky : your symptoms suggest hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. You need to see a doctor for testing soon. In the mean time change your eating pattern to 6 small meals a day with low or no carbohydrates. Eat more meat and fatty foods. This helps lower high insulin levels which cause the shakiness and light headed ness. Have food available and eat if you feel this way to see if it helps. See dr ...Read more

Why do I fell lost or empty in my head? I have not been sleeping well. I have tried everything i can think of. I feel like im crazy.

Depression: It sounds like you may have depression. It's a common problem for young adults. The sleep may be a symptom or a contributing factor. Most of the time, if you were always a pretty good sleeper growing up, then the sleep issue is a symptom. Go see your family doctor. Usually counseling and medications like Prozac (fluoxetine) can help. Counseling is the best for starters. ...Read more

I tried eating different things today that i was craving, (microwaveable foods) i'm 12wks & never got sick. I feel horrible now. Could it be the food?

Food Combination did: Yes, probably the food combination did it. With pregancy, many women get food cravings that may make no sense to anyone, except the person eating the combination that can lead to indigestion. So, wait a bit until it's digested, and stay away from processed, greasy foods, as those are the hardest to digest, and stick to something more organic, vegetable or fruit based, and grass fed meats, and egg. ...Read more

Go Tomorrow to Doc: Symptoms and an enlarged, hard, unresolving lymph node needs prompt evaluation to ensure it is not a cancer (lymphoma). It likely will need to be excised and taken to the lab for cell analysis. You also will likely need blood testing. Don't sit on this. It must be evaluated sooner rather than later. ...Read more

Iv been using an hotwater bottle on my back for a while now Iv got this horrible brown mark and this pat few week Iv started to get clusters of spots ?

Need more info: From your description it sounds like you may have "burned" the skin on your back if the water in the hot water bottle was too hot. This may happen especially if done for a prolonged period of time. Stop use of the hot water bottle, apply a gentle skin cream containing aloe daily. If you see no improvement in a week you should consult with your family physician and find the cause of your back pain ...Read more

My wife has had this horrible pain in her side for years now. We have had several surgeries to aleveate the pain, my wife is 32. For 6-8 years she has had a disabling pain in her right side. It gets worse when she is more active. It also seems to get bett

I : I can imagine the sense of frustration that you and your wife have gone through. Unfortunately the description of her symptoms does not allow me to provide a very educated suggestion as to the cause of her problems. In particular, the causes for this kind of pain can be quite diverse, ranging from an "internal organ" problem, such as gallbladder, intestine, pancreas, urological, gynecological, to musculoskeletal, such as a hernia, to neurological, such as a pinched nerve or neuralgia due to infection. In addition, outside of your comment that the pain seems to improve when she is lying down, there is no mention of associated symptoms, for example, does she have any nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss? Does she have pain associated with eating? Does the pain move, say from the right side to her legs? Does she have any leg weakness? I would imagine she has gone thru a host of tests, probably including mri, ct scans, perhaps us of the gallbladder and possibly endoscopy. Was there a reason for her to have a hysterectomy - what was the pathology? In the end, her primary care physician should feel free to liberally utilize specialists to assist. If after all testing, no cause can be found, there are possible treatments for chronic pain. A neurologist or anesthesiologist that specializes in pain should be consulted - nerve blocks, spinal stimulators, and medications may be useful to control the pain. ...Read more

Be seen: I would encourage you to be seen. Just to make sure that the diagnosis is correct and there is nothing else going on. If it is from the coccyx and it particularly painful, we sometimes will put a steroid injection directly into the bone and it can potentially provide immediate and dramatic relief. ...Read more
