Diagnose and treat: The mainstay of headache treatment is nsaids like advil and analgesics like tylenol (acetaminophen). However, some headache types such as migraines and cluster headaches respond to specific treatments in addition to these.

More questions.: This raises a number of questions. How much diarrhea are you having? If it's more than 5 stools a day or wakes you at night and is associated with pain, fever, or blood in the stool it's time to see a doctor right away. Sometimes medication, for example Prozac (fluoxetine) or Losartan can cause diarrhea. Diarrhea in women can lead to urinary infection. Your MD can help, make an appointment. Best wishes! ...Read more

I've been experiencing dizziness for a week now what can it be, i gotten blood work and all came out good what elese can it be?

Complicated: Balance & dizziness problems are complicated and require a detailed history of the problem. One common cause of sudden vertigo and dizziness is a viral inflammation that effects the inner ear. It may take a couple weeks or so to improve, but that is a possible cause. I highly suggest you see an ENT specialist. ...Read more

Cervical based: headaches are very common and are usually due to SPASM of the neck muscles (In fact BOTOX has been used to treat the worse cases!!) Try alternating ICE and HEAT on the back of your neck/head. See which helps the most and stick with that modality! See your PCP for exact diagnosis and possible referral to a Headache Specialist! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

I've had diarrhea for a few days now but now I am also unable to defacate all of it and my stomach is upset. How do I get rid of this immediately?

I've had diarrhea for a few days now but now I am also unable to defacate all of it and my stomach is upset. How do I get rid of this immediately?

Not "immediately": Did you possibly take medication when you were having diarrhea? Maybe like lomotil (diphenoxylat and atropine)? If so, it can cause constipation -- and will need to wear off before your bowel function can normalize. Simple dehydration can result in constipation also -- not uncommon if unable to keep up with fluid needs during diarrhea. Please hydrate well now, and if still having difficulty by tomorrow morning, see doc. ...Read more

I'm currently 5 weeks pregnant and I have had severe heartburn the last couple of weeks. Nothing OTC has worked.. What can I do to make it go away?

Food will relieve it: Stop grains, lentils, peppers, potatoes based items. Also avoid milk protein (milk, yogurt, cheese) because it irritates gastric lining. Healthy foods: eggs, fish, chicken, meats, vegetables, some saturated fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil), olive oil. Consume a sweet potato and probiotic daily. All these is nourishing for the growing fetus too. https://www.kaushikmd.com/get-started/ ...Read more

I tried to sleep for a long time through OD, but now I just have mono n tummy pain. Is there better way or meds to take? I just wanna sleep for 3 days

I tried to sleep for a long time through OD, but now I just have mono n tummy pain. Is there better way or meds to take? I just wanna sleep for 3 days

Avoid meds: Ronald, I would not recommend meds at this point. If you just had mono, you could possibly have some liver injury and many medications are processed through the liver, so not a good idea. I would avoid any alcohol use, avoid caffeine after noon, avoid eating within 3 hours of bedtime and try to develop a calming routine prior to bed. Sleep in a dark, cool room and try to reduce noises. ...Read more
