I think so: Sounds like a viral infection. Viruses also have an effect on brain metabolism. See your pediatrician. An appropriate dose of melatonin might help.

Am sure its later: Now. You know, if you really have these kinds of questions, there are pharmacists available at 24 hour pharmacies who can answer your questions in real time. Hydrocodone is a short-acting drug and if you took it at 7 PM it was mainly gone by 10-11 PM. The alcohol would be too. I strongly suggest that next time, you don't drink without thinking. It's a bad combo all around.

I worked 9PM to 5AM & got two hours of sleep. I haven't ever worked a midnight shift before. All day I felt like vomiting. Can the two be connected?

Yep: A lot of people report symptoms like those when acutely sleep deprived. It can be overcome by most with a nap, but the duration of the nap varies person to person. So, you may need a 3hr nap to avoid. Pepcid (famotidine) and Dramamine help others to overcome the GI distress, but can cause sleepiness...like staying awake all night can!

Cough: Absolutely worth checking with your physician. There is a multitude of possible causes for your cough from infectious diseases to asthma/ bronchospatic diseases. GERD and drug induced cough will have to be ruled out. Usually a steroid inhaler or a short oral steroid taper are used in case a cause is not apparent after a thorough history and physical exam.

Stomach Flu: Gastroenteritis, Food poisoning, usually resolves in 24-48 hrs. Try to take small portions of water every 15-30 minutes. If you are able to hold liquids down you will likely be fine. If you keep vomiting and having diarrhea time to go to the ED. I did this mistake once, was not pretty... If you start feeling worse go don't hessitate. Hope you feel better Cheers C

8 month old vomited over 90 mins. When lie on back, she attempts to vomit again...even in sleep. What to do?

8 month old vomited over 90 mins. When lie on back, she attempts to vomit again...even in sleep. What to do?

Keeps vomiting: Best is not to give your baby anything at all to drink after vomiting for at least one hour. This gives her tommy a chance to settle down. Then if she is awake offer very small amounts of pedialyte. If she is asleep, let her sleep. In 90 minutes she will not get dehydrated. If the vomiting continues over 12 hours, have her seen by her pediatrician. Hope this helps.

Call Pediatrician: This is a question we can't answer online. Your doctor will have to ask you questions for more details so he can better asses whether it is an urgent problem or if you can wait until the next office hours.

Yesterday if went to sleep after vomiting with the fan on. I woke up during the middle of the night with my butt cheeks hurting. What do I do?

Yesterday if went to sleep after vomiting with the fan on. I woke up during the middle of the night with my butt cheeks hurting. What do I do?

More details of pain: It is difficult to make an suggestions based on non-specific complaint of "butt cheeks hurting". Did you fall? Is there any swelling, insect bites, rash? There is no connection I can make between vomiting, sleeping with fan on and pain in the buttocks.
