Work up in the middle of the night with a headache and feeling like throwing up. I went to the restroom and threw up acidic and have dark stool. ?

Get checked: Dark black melena stools are signs of a stomach bleed. Acid reflux can cause nausea and sour taste in mouth mostly when lying flat, but more concerning is that the stomach ulcer may be bleeding if the dark stools continue. ...Read more

Can you die from waking up with a racing heart in panic mode ? Ex: from a nightmare, or a noise making you wake up scared?

Can you die from waking up with a racing heart in panic mode ? Ex: from a nightmare, or a noise making you wake up scared?

Sleep issues: I agree w dr. Ali. However need to ask if you find that you wake up gasping for breath. Do you snore? Does your partner ever witness your breathing stop. It does sound like you are developing panic in response to nightmares (which will not kill you) but if you have sleep apnea that would need evaluation by a sleep specialist. The two issues sometimes co-occur. Take care. ...Read more

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy?

Normal to vomit a lot of acid with morning sickness?

Normal to vomit a lot of acid with morning sickness?

Yes: Morning sickness is the reaction your body has to Hcg (pregnancy hormone). Some ppl get the same reaction to TSH if they're hyperthyroid. You can start getting nauseous at 4 wks, w/ peak symptoms at 6wks, usually stopping by mid-2nd trimester. Natural remedies are ginger (tea/candy), vit B6. Rx: Metoclopramide/Reglan, hydroxyzine, benadryl, phenergan, (promethazine) and zofran are all good methods to try. ...Read more

Awoke feeling like throwing up. Tried, but couldn't-Was dry heaving/coughing up small bits of blood.Blew nose-reddish color.Have Bad  GERD. Thoughts?

GERD//red emesis: Limited information. Would seek medical attention today. It could be some irritation from the acid of GERD as it refluxes upward with sleep into the nasopharynx ,or a major GI bleed,which causes nausea when the stomach fills with blood . Seek medical attention today as soon as possible. ...Read more

I wake up coughing .  The air feels cold on my lungs  difficult to puss through.  I end up throwing up mucus.  Also, heartburn is out of control?

coughing: You may be having stomach secretions and acid regurgitating into your throat at night when you sleep. Called gerd. Make appt. For check up. Meanwhile try to elevate head of bed six inches, avoid alcohol, do not eat or drink much after eating dinner. Do not eat late. Stop smoking. Try antacid e.g. Tums (calcium carbonate) for coughing and heartburn. ...Read more

At night while sleeping, i wake up with a racing heart&tons of drainage down throat.I cough after.The fluid&racing heart go handinhand, for months now?

Postnasal drip: Postnasal dripping of mucus while you are recumbent in bed may be caused by excessive dryness or dust collection in your bedroom. I believe that the rapid heart beat is secondary to the nasal dripping and not due to cardiac pathology. Taking an antihistamine like benadryl (diphenhydramine) at bedtime may prevent symptoms but avoid decongestants like Sudafed or neosynephrine nasal spray which accelerate the heart ...Read more

22m old fell from chair&hit back of head yesterday.Woke up threw up 2xthis morning&now has101.2fever.Acting normal, vomit normal.Related2fall or flu?

See doctor: The vomiting could be from something structurally wrong in the brain--a blood clot, etc. However, fever would be unusual with head trauma in an acute setting. Also, acting normal would probably not go along with head trauma. However, you probably ought to play it safe and get baby checked out. ...Read more

I've always been able to handle decent amounts of alcohol. All of a sudden, having just a few drinks makes me throw up all night?

I've always been able to handle decent amounts of alcohol. All of a sudden, having just a few drinks makes me throw up all night?

See answer: You probably have gastritis - I would advise you to hold off the alcohol for at least a few weeks and avoid any NSAIDs (i.e., ibuprofen, naproxen, etc). If still having nausea/vomiting, you should see your doctor. Consider taking a 14 day course of prilosec to speed up the healing. In the future, reduce your alcohol consumption so this doesn't happen! ...Read more

Woke up with overwhelming intrusive thoughts and anxiety. Followed by an episode of confusion and mind went blank for a couple sec. Anything serious?

No can tell from inf: No way to tell the direct relevance of your description of how you woke up. This seems to have been a 1 time event. If it becomes regular in any way or more intense so that it terribly interferes with your life then, you need to talk to a doctor to see if you could use a consultation with a person who can put you through the workup. ...Read more
