Can IBS or SIBO symptoms occur suddenly? I was perfectly healthy until 3 weeks ago. I've had trouble having a formed BM, since.

Can IBS or SIBO symptoms occur suddenly?  I was perfectly healthy until 3 weeks ago.  I've had trouble having a formed BM, since.

No: By definition, IBS is a chronic illness, and it cannot be diagnosed until the symptoms have been present for at least three months. If your symptoms persist, you should see your doctor for the sudden change in your bowel habits. In the meantime, I would recommend you increase the fiber in your diet and consider a fiber supplement. Continue a good amount of liquid intake also. Good luck. ...Read more

This : This is a situation that warrants a medical evaluation. This type of abnormal bleeding can be due to hormonal changes, fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus), pregnancy, etc. You will need a visit with your doctor for a pap smear if not done in the past year, blood and/or urine testing, and possibly an order for a pelvic ultrasound. Depending on the results your doctor may want to start you on a birth control pills to stabilize your hormones thus controlling your period. Good luck. ...Read more

OMM: If an MRI didn't show anything specific then i would assume a musculoskeletal problem until proven otherwise. I would seek out a skilled do who uses osteopathic manipulation and see what they can do for you. I would specifically seek out someone who does omm almost exclusively as a specialist. ...Read more

Prenatal care: The lack of symptoms can not be used to draw conclusions regarding the viability of an early pregnancy. This is not a reliable way of predicting outcome. Schedule your first prenatal care visit to make sure all is normal ...Read more

I had tendon problems last year went to pt for 3 months. I still have knee problems. Could the problem never have left me?

I had tendon problems last year went to pt for 3 months. I still have knee problems. Could the problem never have left me?

Strengthen your quad: What stabilizes the knee especially if you run, are your quadriceps. Strengthening your thigh muscles with weights will stabilize your knee cap and you may have significant less knee issues. Doing pt for 3 months is great, but you need maintenance with regular muscle strengthening exercises. Hope this helps! also look up patellar femoral syndrome. ...Read more

Do not wait: This can mean your life. Find a city or county hospital, or indigent care facility. Try to call a doctor and explain your circumstances, they might be willing to see you for free. You need to know if this is cancer or an infection. Infection is curable, cancer can be curable now, but will not be later. ...Read more

Biliary Dyskinesia: Cholecystectomy is rapidly becoming the treatment of choice. A meta-analysis examined five studies, with cumulative data in 274 patients showing 90% symptomatic relief with operative treatment vs. 32% symptomatic relief in nonoperative treatment arms.

I have never had problems until after my c-section now docs say i may have endometriosis is there a connection pain started 3 weeks post op 3yrs ago ?

Good question: Since endometriosis is the presence outside the uterus inside your belly of the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus which grows every month to prepare for potential fetus and then is sloughed as a period if there is no conception, one could imagine that after c-section some of that tissue could seed the abdomen - this is definitely a question for ob/gyn - doctors? ...Read more

I am 25 have Tightness & ache in chest & upper back for 3 months. I have no other symptoms. If it was heart related would it last this long?

Not likely: Although it is unlikely that your symptoms are cardiac related in a 25 year old woman it is not unlikely for cardiac symptoms to persist for three months. It would be reasonable to seek an evaluation by a health care professional both to exclude cardiac etiology but also to help alleviate your discomfort with an appropriate diagnosis. ...Read more

My daughter (9 yrs old) has had nausea for the past 7 days or so. She has no fever, no headaches, flu symptoms or any other symptoms. What could it be?

Many things: Anytime a child has symptoms for that long, i think getting a good history and exam is important. Not having other symptoms is good, but nausea can have many causes. It can be from infection, medication, allergy, anxiety, reflux disease, gluten/lactose issues and so on. Best to sit down and explore thoroughly with a provider you trust. ...Read more
