LAbor: Symtoms of preterm labor or labor are: uterine contractions, pelvic cramps, abdominal pain, back pain, bloody or mocuos discharge, frequent contractions that don't go away with rest. Hope this helps. Vomiting sometimes is caused due to the excessive pain. If in doubt call your obgyn asap.

Have you ever heard of these symptoms during labor: vomiting, dizziness, increased heart rate, fast paced breathing?

Have you ever heard of these symptoms during labor: vomiting, dizziness, increased heart rate, fast paced breathing?

Yea: Typically, we call it being in active labor. If you are a man, think about this: the equivalent for you would be passing a bowling ball out of your anus. Just the thought makes me nauseous. But there's other potential causes for those symptoms, dangerous ones for both mom and baby.

36wks vomiting, loose stools, all day consistent terrible lower back pain.. 5cm 50% effaced. Should I go to l&d. Could this be labor?

36wks vomiting, loose stools, all day consistent terrible lower back pain.. 5cm 50% effaced. Should I go to l&d. Could this be labor?

Go to L;D: If you are vomiting that means you are unlikely to keep down fluids, in which case, you likely might need an IV and to receive IV fluids. It sounds like a viral illness, meaning that typically self-limited and will go away in 12-24 hours, but go to l;d so you can be evaluated for dehyrdation. Sometimes nausea and vomiting is assc with labor, but go to l;d and find out. Good luck!

Severe low back pain, vomiting, no kidney stones. Feels like back labor, not pregnant. 29y/o female.

Severe low back pain, vomiting, no kidney stones. Feels like back labor, not pregnant. 29y/o female.

Infection: This may well be a kidney infection. Need to see your local ER or urgicenter. This may affect the health of your kidney. This severe back pain may be muscular but must be considered otherwise for now. Muscular back pain does not usually cause vomiting.

Almost 36w pregnant, nausea followed by vomiting, lower leg cramps, tummy tightening, and back pain... Plus constant heartburn. Labor? Flu?

Almost 36w pregnant, nausea followed by vomiting, lower leg cramps, tummy tightening, and back pain... Plus constant heartburn. Labor? Flu?

Likely labor: This sounds like early labor, which is usually not such a problem at 36 weeks of pregnancy. You might certainly have a urinary tract infection or virus. I am sure that your obstetrician would be happy to see you and sort this out with you. Good luck!

Violent and continuous vomiting during labour has injured my oesophagus and I am in constant pain with it and cannot eat or drink.

Violent and continuous vomiting during labour has injured my oesophagus and I am in constant pain with it and cannot eat or drink.

Gastroenterologist: I assume a gastroenterologist has evaluated and advised you. If the injury was recent, perhaps you're dealing with tears in the lining; if not, chronic inflammatory changes and or spasms may be the problem. A soft, bland diet, taking liquid antacid like maalox or mylanta to coat the esophagus and also taking a ppi like prilosec or nexium (esomeprazole) may help. Repeat endoscopy may be needed in no improvement.

After a c section, after 17 hours labour and lots of antibiotics, I am getting vomiting attacks that are intense and lots of dry wretching with hot and cold feeling. Is it normal?

If you are still in: The hospital, your neuse shoudl be notifying your OB doc as u amy ahve an endometritis or otehr infection, and you may have GI irritation or colitis from teh antibiotics, not as comon is septic pelvic thrombophebitis that can give those sxs, so your OB doc should be treating u now.

Is throwing up a sign of dehydration, what's the proper way to rehydrate without getting sick?

Is throwing up a sign of dehydration, what's the proper way to rehydrate without getting sick?

Not sign: Persistent throwing up can cause dehydration, but it's not a sign/symptom of it. If taking fluids is making you throw up, proper rehydration is as follows: First, let stomach rest for about 2 hours where you don't try to take anything in. Then use a rehydration solution such as Pediatlye or low sugar Gatorade and take just a teaspoon. If you keep that down for 5 minutes, take another teaspoon.

Sympathetic symptoms: By "male" are you referring to an elderly individual, infant, child since different answers for each, due to anticipated co-morbidities ; risks. Also, is there blood, bile, food mixed with vomitus, weight loss, pain--makes a considerable difference in what assistance we can render him. Your question seems to suggest however a psychogenic cause, like sympathetic pregnancy. Go get him ; you checked.

Can I give my 15 month old peptobismol? She keeps throwing up with no signs of fever or illness.

Can I give my 15 month old peptobismol? She keeps throwing up with no signs of fever or illness.

Reye Syndrome: Don't give her adult pepto-bismol, it contains Bismuth Subsalicylate which could put your child at risk for reye syndrome. Children's pepto chewable tablets are for ages two and up. I recommend that you talk with her pediatrician about the best options.

I'm stressing over not having a period I didn't have sex I have no signs of one I feel like throwing up?

I'm stressing over not having a period I didn't have sex I have no signs of one I feel like throwing up?

May be just normal: First, I do not know, when did u have your last period and have u been having regular periods. No sex after last period, u cannot be pregnant. Missing a period on and off is normal. Medication can effect your period. Stress, excessive exercise, not eating, eating d/o can make u miss a period. Stress disrupts the hpa axis @ can cause it. Missing period x 3 months is amenorrhea. Consult your obgyn.

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.

What are signs of Dilantin toxicity? I have been having bad chest pains for a few days, been dizzy, shakey, weak, just started running a fever 2 hours ago, been throwing up. I have had this before but I don't remeber much about it.

I: I do not know if you have Dilantin toxicity. Dr. Lin provided symptoms of toxicity earlier. Lets see how that list of symptoms lines up with your symptoms. Nausea and vomiting — you indicated that you have been throwing up. Tremor (form of shaking) — you indicated that you are shakey. Lethargy (feeling tired) — you said you feel weak. Nystagmus — your eyes may seem to be moving back and forth —especially if you look from one side to another. Ataxia - difficulty walking. Dysarthria — difficulty speaking. Hypotensive — low blood pressure — this might make you feel dizzy. You described having bad chest pains, and feeling dizzy. I recommend that you be medically evaluated to determine the cause. The doctor will be able to draw a Dilantin blood level at that time. I hope you feel better soon.
