PROLONG ILLNESS:: She needs thorough evaluation and treatment. High WBC count with increased neutrophil count goes in favor of bacterial infection or something more serious. Does she have sickle cell disease? Take her back to the pediatrician for re-evaluation and further testing and proper management. ...Read more

Heartburn?: Hard to say without an exam but if heartburn is the issue- try taking an OTC PPI such as omeprazole- sometimes it works better than Nexium (for certain ppl). I would like if you saw a gastroenterologist to arrange a possible endoscopy. ...Read more

Bad pain under ribs on both sides, spreads into my back, nausea some vomiting, chest pain and increased heart rate. What's wrong?

See a doctor!: Your medical and pregnancy history warrants you being seen by a physician ASAP, or go to an urgent care clinic for work up. If you've been vomiting for a few days, you need to go to an ER to prevent against dehydration, and make sure to check for possible pregnancy too. In any case, nothing can be assumed until you've been seen and evaluated in person. All symptoms are not normal, and need help. ...Read more

Chest Pains: You didn't state your age or mention any other symptoms like breathing discomfort, indigestion, weight loss, fever, etc. Without more details, it is hard to say. Is the pain sharp, or dull? On a scale of 1-10, how bad is it? Does anything bring it on, or, make it better? Does it bother you at night? Make an appointment with your doctor and be prepared to answer these and other questions. ...Read more
