I smell congestion making very sick to my stomach a can't stop coughig?

Sinus Infection: The fact you smell your "congestion" suggests the mucous coming from your sinus is infected because your sinus/sinuses are infected. The cough may come from the lung getting its own infection from the infecting agent or it may come the infected mucous coming down to your lung area or a combo of both. You should go to your doctor and be evaluated and treated as soon as possible. ...Read more

I got an egd today and waiting on the biopsy results. What does congestion in the stomach body and antrum compatible with gastritis?  & normal mucosa?

Patchy inflammation: Congestion is synonymous with hyperemia, which literally means redness. Based on the your description of the endoscopic appearance of your stomach lining it sounds like you have a patchy mild inflammation there. Biopsies will tell more, and may help point to cause of said inflammation (e.g. H. Pylori, nsaid, etc.). ...Read more

People who take a lot of inflammation meds like aspirin, goody, advil (ibuprofen) or steroids can get this. There is also a syndrome called zollinber ellison. ...Read more

I've been blowing my nose all the time (due to allergies, reflux, congestion, etc.) I'm worried because it causes my stomach to tighten up every time I have to blow it. Could this harm the fetus?

Toddler has fever 100.2 congestion, headache lasted a few min and stomach pain last night. Was running around today but still has fever, take to ER?

Toddler has fever 100.2 congestion, headache lasted a few min and stomach pain last night. Was running around today but still has fever, take to ER?

Not today: If your child is running around today, perks up with a dose of ibuprofen, it doesn't sound like ER visit material. It's not the fever itself that we worry about in a child, rather how the child is acting and how their behavior responds to the fever medicine. Fever itself isn't damaging in and of itself. We just want to learn where the fever is "coming from" so to speak. Outpatient visit soon ...Read more
