44 y.o. F, nausea w/o vomiting for 3 wks, some aching glands, flatulence approx. 1 mo., history of ovarian cysts, abdom. pain past 3 mo. - related?

44 y.o. F, nausea w/o vomiting for 3 wks, some aching glands, flatulence approx. 1 mo., history of ovarian cysts, abdom. pain past 3 mo. - related?

Maybe maybe not: This sounds more like a gastrointestinal issue than an ovarian issue especially with the increase flatulence. A lot of women have IBS in addition to GYN problems. Excessive bowel activity (lower) can also increase nausea. Of course if its possible for you to be pregnant, please check a pregnancy test. A large cyst with torsion would cause pain and vomitting. ...Read more

Passing gas: since apr/13, my volume is up 200-400%. High fiber diet. Lithium toxicity undiagnosed 5 yrs. Dosage lowered to 450mg 6 mo's ago.Related?

Passing gas: since apr/13, my volume is up 200-400%.  High fiber diet. Lithium toxicity undiagnosed 5 yrs. Dosage lowered to 450mg 6 mo's ago.Related?

Not from Lithium: Your increase in flatus is more likely due to your high fiber diet, rather than lithium. Lithium can cause diarrhea ; loose stools in 20% of patients. That said, high fiber is healthy for your bowels. As long as it's coming out, the gas will not harm you. You could avoid gas-forming foods like broccoli, beans, onions, fermentable fiber, lactose, etc, for a couple of weeks ; then test 1 by 1. ...Read more

Burned back of throat with only a few sips of gas station hot chocolate they were pretty big gulps because I had not had hot chocolate for about 2 mo.

Burned back of throat with only a few sips of gas station hot chocolate they were pretty big gulps because I had not had hot chocolate for about 2 mo.

Bummer, I: hate it when that happens... avoid hot (temp and spicy) foods for next 3-5 days and it should heal without incident. The lining of the mouth and throat regenerate new tissue very quickly. Best of luck. ...Read more

22 mo old daughter with sudden fever of 102. No symptoms other than body aches and excessive gas. Fever lasted less than 24hrs. Still has gas. ?

Fever and flatus: Flatus (gas) is caused by all kinds of things the most likely of which is swallowed air due to excessive crying. Give this time and as long as she is having no other issues, let this resolve on its own. There is really not much else that can and needs to be done unless there is something else going on that you have not mentioned. ...Read more

1 mo. Postfundoplication I hiccup 50x day. Tx is gas-x, ativan, (lorazepam) full liquid diet. Soft food sticks at wrap. What can I do? When will hiccups stop?

1 mo. Postfundoplication I hiccup 50x day. Tx is gas-x, ativan, (lorazepam) full liquid diet. Soft food sticks at wrap. What can I do? When will hiccups stop?

Less-sticky foods?: Many websites describe having hiccups as one of the expected side effects of weight-loss surgeries. The exact cause is uncertain, but some say it is a "new" sign being full (of food in the "tummy"), and might by helped by eating/swallowing slowly. One can talk with the surgeon to see what his experience is with his patients, whether their hiccups last one month or one year, etc... ...Read more

Is it safe to give my 4.5 mo daughter diluted chamomile tea to ease upset tummy/gas pains?

Is it safe to give my 4.5 mo daughter diluted chamomile tea to ease upset tummy/gas pains?

Safe-yes: Recommend-no. I find teas and other potions have little effect on infants, ant the air they swallow while drinking the tea may bloat them more. Simethacone drops is the one agent that seems to provide some relief. ...Read more

I am 6 weeks postpartum with my 3rd child. I  am experiencing vaginal flatulence that feels like air bubbling out. No sound or odor. Normal or fistula?

Not normal: Would be concerned for possible fistula. Did you have a significant perineal tear, large episiotomy, difficult delivery (forceps, foot or arm presentation)? Please call and speak with your OB. Need good vaginal and rectal exam. Best of luck with this and congratulations on your newest member of your family. Dr R ...Read more
