Gastroenteritis: This could be food poisoning or a "stomach flu" such as viral gastroenteritis. Get rest, stay hydrated, and eat a bland diet. This should pass in a few days. Should you develop fevers, severe diarrhea or blood in the stool, severe vomiting, inability to tolerate oral intake and feeling dehydrated (dry mouth, dizzy, lightheaded), then I would advise going to the emergency department immediately. ...Read more

Lightheadedness, loss of appetite, weakness since afternoon. What is the provisional diagnosis?

Lightheaded: Probably dehydrated. Drink at least 2 liters of water and see if this resolves. You will be surprised how you will feel. If that does not work, you could be coming down with a virus in which case the treatment is the same with some Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for any ache or pains. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

Have headaches left temple, loss of appetite, occasional weakness on left side. I have been stressed and have a lot of anxiety. Can tht be the cause?

Having pain in right upper side of my abdomen for 6 hours now, started out dull and felt stabbing pain when I moved around, now it's persistent. Loss of appetite and some flatulence. What can it be?

Right upper: Right upper abdominal pain occurs with gall stones, liver disorders and muscular inflammation.

Since symptoms are persisting, you should be examined in the emergency room where prompt testing is available. ...Read more

Recently, I had lots of gas, and a loss of appetite. Anything I ate, would cause me to vomit, what might cause this?

58year w bloatedness, feel full of gas, hear gases in tummy, discomfort feel like unable to empty gases, loss of appetite? Had mucus for 2 weeks then stop

Gas: If your abdomen is distended with gas, drinking warm water and applying heat to the abdomen helps break down the gas and moves it down the intestinal tract which is better than belching which causes you to swallow more air. Take simethicone 1/2hour after meals to prevent gas build-up. Learn what gives you so much gas. ...Read more
