Consider seeing a Dr: A person with diarrhea can consider seeing a doctor if his symptoms are not mild and temporary. Usually, one can expect 2-3 days of watery diarrhea, and then recovery over another 2-3 days. If there is a lot of pain, or blood or mucus in the diarrhea, a doctor should evaluate.

Fatigue: The symptoms which you describe are quite consistent with many diagnoses. Pregnancy is one of many possible things that could be going on.

Norovirus and mono got me. Gastritis for the last 2 months. Some stomach tenderness. Found a little IM in stomach on scope. Take Prilosec. Thoughts?

Sorry about yr GI: If you really have a gastritis (inflamed stomach) the antacid Prilosec that should help. About your viral infections with Norovirus and Infectious Mono virus we have no antiviral drugs for those and you will just have to endure. The people who do worst are the very young (infants) and the very old (over 75). You will do fine. ...Read more

30 weeks preg. Alot of stomach tenderness npain. Cervix feel low n very soft. Feels like one finger could slide through. Feel baby hitting through cerv?

???: I don't know where this "checking cervix " fad has come from but it has absolutely no usefulness. It's very difficult to check your own cervix. Visualizing it would be better than blindly poking around. Most women do not know what it is they are feeling when they try. They often misinterpret what they are feeling. I think it worries women more than it enlightens. Go to your Dr for a proper exam ...Read more

Why is the stomach so tender and numb after csection? 14 days PP

Why is the stomach so tender and numb after csection? 14 days PP

It is healing: The healing process is not an overnight "sensation", rather a proliferation of complex events involving white blood cells, and collagen building proteins. A C/section scar needs time to complete the process over several weeks, in addition to regeneration of the abdominal surface nerves that were cut at that time. Don't forget to go back to your OB MD at the 4 to 6 week post partum check up. ...Read more

Why are my boobs sore and I urinate more than usual and my lower stomach feels tender and sensitive & I'm hungry in the morning but on Depo-Provera shot?

Pregnancy test: I would recommend taking a home pregnancy test or seeing your doctor. No birth control method is 100% effective. These may be normal symptoms of someone on Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) but I would say you should rule out pregnancy. Many women do experience the things you are describing while on Depo-Provera provera. If you are not pregnant you may still need to see your doctor to discuss your symptoms. ...Read more
