If: If after eating something these symptoms went away, the diagnosis could be hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Some elderly individuals can develop what is called post prandial hypoglycemia, that is their blood sugar start to fall after few hours of having a meal to the point that they start to have symptoms. This can be confirmed by a 5 hour or 6 hour glucose tolerance test. If this diagnosis is confirmed, he should be given small frequent meals to prevent symptomatic hypoglycemia. ...Read more

YouGotYourHeartInIt: Glad I saw this. It worries me a little. Of course, any doctor would need to know more but, a lot of other possibilities aside for now, at your age it could be related to your heart.

I'd also consider what I've been eating and how much. Lighten-up for now. ...Read more

2 months old is very fussy after eating. He passes tons of very smelly gas and sweats a lot while crying/gassy, throws up 1-2/ day. Mylicon doesn't work?

2 months old is very fussy after eating. He passes tons of very smelly gas and sweats a lot while crying/gassy, throws up 1-2/ day. Mylicon doesn't work?

Doctor's exam needed: A 2 month old baby normally does not have bad-smelling poop nor smelly gas. If that is happening, the doctor can examine the baby and look for infectious causes such as viral or bacteria causes. Also, a few babies have trouble digesting what they eat, thus leading to bad-smelling poop and gas. Two months is still very young, so a parent should not wait. ...Read more

Sweat: The "why" is a because your son does not appear to listen to you about the effects of cupcakes and sweets. Regrettably he is unlikely to change.

The Insulin spikes in and it causes blood sugar to drop and you crave for sweets. To prevent it cut down the carbs in your meal.

I was feeling nauseous after eating something from school and haven't been able to eat sweets in general. Now I'm just randomly nauseous. Why?

CafeWorkerGoneWild: Find out what it was that you ate. Patent the formula and get a government contract to distribute it country-wide, in line with the FDA's recent policy about people eating less sweets. Of course a country full of nauseated people wouldn't look too pretty, would it? So, get some Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) at the drugstore to help your nausea and see how you feel tomorrow. If not better, see the school nurse. ...Read more
