Been feeling nauseous, light headed and gassy for 3 weeks. Tnot pregnant. What can cause this? Been to doctors 3 times and just given anti nausea tablet

See GI specialist: If your symptoms consist only of nausea and gassy, I would consider acid reflux on the top of the list. However getting lightheaded is not part of reflux unless this has prevented from eating or drinking enough. If you are certain that you are not pregnant, a GI evaluation is needed. Providing more details -age, other med conditions, medications taken etc helps us to give better answers. ...Read more

My childs mother is 36 weeks pregnant and she's having upper back pains and getting light headed and she's short of breath what's going on?

Third trimester woes: Most of this sounds normal. The third trimester and especially the last four weeks causes strain on the back from the shift forward of a woman's balance.

Is a pregnancy test an option? Slight nausea, breasts are heavy & feel full, heartburn, my nipples have been leaking, both breasts leaking, feeling slightly light headed mostly towards the end of the day, sudden exhaustion no matter how much sleep I get

Is a pregnancy test an option? Slight nausea, breasts are heavy & feel full, heartburn, my nipples have been leaking, both breasts leaking, feeling slightly light headed mostly towards the end of the day, sudden exhaustion no matter how much sleep I get

As: As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test is accurate around the time of your next period. Either way, you should give your doctor a call. If you are pregnant, then it's important that you start your prenatal care. If you are not pregnant, then your symptoms may be due to a hormone imbalance and you should be seen and evaluated for that problem. Good luck! ...Read more

Check urine: If you have ruled out the more serious concerns, females can develop urinary tract infections much easier than males. Though it is not typical for urinary tract infections to cause dizziness, untreated ones certainly do cause dizziness nausea and even diarrhea.

Reflux: I bet it's reflux, it can sneak up on you. Try generic zantac (ranitidine) at 150 mg per day? If not working go in; doesn't explain dizziness but that can be a hard one. If that persists u may want to get seen but treat the stomach acid. ...Read more

Burbing?: I've been to Astoria Queens. I recall feeling panic the entire time I was there. Sounds like your doctor is treating you for generalized anxiety disorder. If you get a feeling of flip flopping in your stomach followed by elevated heart rate and a sudden sense of panic and his approach does not eventually work, get an EEG. You may have "abdominal (autonomic) epilepsy" Look it up. ...Read more

Tired, light headed nausea. All tests ok but ferritin low at 16. Heavy menstration. Could I be having symptoms anemia if hem is normal?

I'd bet so: Iron is involved in much more than hemoglobin production, and people who are iron-deficient feel tired and weak before the anemia appears. Iron also keeps your muscles and mitochondria going. You need to find out why you are iron deficient and address the underlying cause (illness, pregnancy / periods, diet). ...Read more

Copper IUD: IUD's do not prevent pregnancies outside the uterus (ectopic). Symptoms of pregnancy with bloating, nausea can indicate a pregnancy in the tube which has a much lower pregnancy hormone production and it may not register positive on a regular pregnancy test. Get a quantitative HCG serum test, and if positive see your healthcare provider immediately. ...Read more

Body feeling off and hot. Sudden sweaty palms and feet. Sudden light headed and feeling about to pass out. Nausea.?

You could be: Presyncopal which is the syndrome that occurs right before you actually pass out (syncope). The symptoms you described speak of an adrenaline/ epipherine rush that occurs with acute hypotension/ body reaction to low blood pressure. Check your blood sugar to make sure it did not drop too low, also a potential cause for syncope. Heart rhythm problems and adrenal problems can also cause these. ...Read more
