Fasting & vomiting: MAYBE you have a stomach virus or food poisoning. Be careful of dehydration. After not eating your may have eaten too much at once. Please see your doc to understand why you were not eating and to diagnose your situation. He/she may ask you to stay hydrated and eat lightly at first. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I think I ate a few expired famous amos cookies. They tasted fine, but the bag said "M10314 B6", so I didn't know what that meant. Will it make me sick?

I think I ate a few expired famous amos cookies. They tasted fine, but the bag said "M10314 B6", so I didn't know what that meant. Will it make me sick?

If you feel sick: Go to your doc. The cookies have an expiration date somewhere but it appears you didn't find it. There are so many preservatives and chemicals in packaged foods that they last for a long time but do not have much nutrition. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I drank more than 30 pills 3 days ago. My brother said nothing will happen to me since I weigh 165. But I havnt aten normally. Help?

You should: Have your Acetaminophen level checked at least twice 8 hours apart. You didn't specify what dose you took so it is hard to estimate the potential risk. Acetaminophen has a delayed effect which can be life threatening. Lastly, if this was intentional you need some professional assistance and I would recommend you seek help from a skilled psychologist very soon. Good luck. ...Read more

On sunday, I ate a lot of things. 4am on monday I woke up and vommit. The same morning I had diarrhea about 3 times and temperature. What could it be?

Viral gastro: Probably an ingested food toxin or a viral gastroenteritis. If you are still having symptoms, check in with your doc. Try a bland diet of toast and chicken broth. Avoid dairy and spicy/fatty foods. Peptobismol can be helpful as well. ...Read more

2 year post gallbladder op, I ate a bag of crisps earlier and now getting pain inbetween ribs same sort of pain I had before just not full on attack?

Postop gallbladder: Gallbladder disease has similar symptoms to other upper GI conditions. Most likely symptoms are dyspepsia. In very rare cases when a very long cystic duct is left behind there can be symptoms of colic although some expert argue this long cystic duct syndrome does not exist. ...Read more

I have a drug test tomorrow morning. I am 5'2 125 pounds. I'm 33 days weed free. I drank and excessive amount of water over the 33 days, and ate right, for the most part, and stayed semi active. I smoked maybe 2 to 3 times a week, less than a gram (normal

I have a drug test tomorrow morning. I am 5'2 125 pounds. I'm 33 days weed free. I drank and excessive amount of water over the 33 days, and ate right, for the most part, and stayed semi active. I smoked maybe 2 to 3 times a week, less than a gram (normal

Hard to say: My best guess is that it is likely to be negative, since only very heavy smokers (usually daily or 5X/week) who have smoked for months/years stay positive for over 30 days. However, it depends on the quality of the marijuana used (how much THC) and for how long you were smoking it. Congrats on quitting. Stop excessive water use since a dilute urine specimen will be considered adulterated. ...Read more

I'm taking Flagyl and ate cookies with maltitol will this have the same effect as alcohol?

I'm taking Flagyl and ate cookies with maltitol will this have the same effect as alcohol?

No: You should be fine, the side effect of abdominal distress, nausea/vomiting, flushing or headache is associated with intake of alcoholic beverages while on flagyl. Depending on how many cookies you ate, the maltitol content may cause diarrhea. Increase water intake to prevent dehydration and reduce side effect of flagyl. Be sure to finish this antibiotic course. Take care. ...Read more

Can food poisoning affect one person and not another? My sister and I ate the same dish but she's sick and I'm fine.

Can food poisoning affect one person and not another? My sister and I ate the same dish but she's sick and I'm fine.

Most likely it isn't: Food poisoning. Rather I suspect she caught a stomach virus & started having symptoms when you had dinner. Hopefully you practice good handwashing & didn't do anything to acquire it (although individual immunity to viruses can vary). ...Read more

Why do I get skinnier and lighter even though I ate the same amount of food everyday? Is exercise the reason as I rarely does it?

Why do I get skinnier and lighter even though I ate the same amount of food everyday? Is exercise the reason as I rarely does it?

See Dr., then eat...: If one is truly underweight (based on height, family background, and body type), a Dr. Can evaluate for a hormonal, digestive, or other disorder. If no medical cause is found, then one can add weight by eating more calories of nutritious foods, while also doing weight-training to increase muscle. Proteins: egg white, chicken breast, salmon, . .. Better fats: olive oil, peanuts, almonds, tofu, . ... ...Read more

I ate 900 calories of food at 2am. Then went to sleep 2 hours later that same day. I woke up at 2pm. Do those 900 calories count for my day over all?

I ate 900 calories of food at 2am. Then went to sleep 2 hours later that same day. I woke up at 2pm. Do those 900 calories count for my day over all?

Yes: It makes no difference when the calories were taken in. The calories will always count, and be added to the daily total. Of course, one gets to decide for himself when his daily totals start each day (at midnight, at 6 a.m., etc...). ...Read more

At sisters 1 1/2wks ago. My 2 yo found disc battery. Gave to me. Sis said it was only one. Dark brwn stool today. Other symptoms if he ate one by now?

At sisters 1 1/2wks ago. My 2 yo found disc battery. Gave to me. Sis said it was only one. Dark brwn stool today. Other symptoms if he ate one by now?

Battery: Common problem. We are always concerned that this could result in aspiration into the lung and cause a breathing problem. However, if it occurred 1 1/2 weeks ago, chances are he has already passed it. I'd keep an eye on his bowel movements to make sure it's not a persistent occurrance. If it is, you can always discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

I ate a spicy shrimp roll, not realizing that there were fish eggs on it, until the end. I asked if the roll was cooked and they said yes. Is my baby?

I ate a spicy shrimp roll, not realizing that there were fish eggs on it, until the end. I asked if the roll was cooked and they said yes. Is my baby?

Likely no problem: As best as I can tell there is no strict reason to avoid raw fish eggs during pregnancy. Here is a discussion I found of several women who ate fish eggs when pregnant and had no problems. See
http://community. Babycenter. Com/post/a33101464/anyone_know_if_its_okay_to_eat_fish_eggs_while_pregnant
So it seems highly unlikely this will cause any problems for your baby. ...Read more

Nausea: 1st - get a pregnancy test. If negative then wait a few days and check another one. In meantime no tobacco not alcohol until you are sure she isn't pregnant! I would even have her take a prenatal vitamin every day. Other possibilities - vertigo or low blood sugar. ...Read more

I ate an avocado which had grey bits in and tasted smoky. Will I get food poisoning? It said it was still in date.

No: Take it easy. Grey bits in an avocado are not a cause for concern.

What ate the consequences of using 2 times in the same cycle the norlevo emergency contraception? Is it harmful? Thank you

What ate the consequences of using 2 times in the same cycle the norlevo emergency contraception? Is it harmful? Thank you

For emergencies: Emergency contraception is for emergencies only and not to be used as regular method, it contains very high level of hormones that is generally not good for your body or your health and have a very high probability of side effects, if you need to use emergency contraception that often, maybe it is time to find a regular method that would be better for you. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Can you develop an allergy to cooked carrots after years of eating them? This is 2nd time my son lips swelled & same thing he's ate both times!

Can you develop an allergy to cooked carrots after years of eating them? This is 2nd time my son lips swelled & same thing he's ate both times!

Yes: A sensitivity and/or allergy can indeed develop at any time. It is not unusual for a person to take an antibiotic several times and not have a reaction, and then all of a sudden they do. While this is not as common with food allergies, it can happen. You may want to be double sure it's not an additive - are these fresh carrots not done anything to except cook in water, or canned with preservatives? ...Read more
