I have been baving on and off stomach pains since december 25th and I got cold symptoms about 3 days later. Still having both. What could it be?

Vague: Your question asks about very vague symptoms; they could be related to each other, or not, and could have the same cause, or not. The answer depends on having a lot more information, and on what your doctor sees when he examines you. The best advice I can give is to see your doctor if the symptoms persist. ...Read more

My sixteen year old son has had cold symptoms. His headache and stomach ache have gone away but he gets tons of mucus in morning and night.?

Not uncommon: It's not unusual to have more congestion and mucus at night, as a result of laying flat. This could be related to the common cold or other upper respiratory viral infection or drainage from the sinuses. Most viral infections, including sinus infections, resolve within 5-7 days and don't require antibiotics. If it's been longer than that, your son should see his doctor. ...Read more

Had cold symptoms 2 days. Yesterday was dizzy and had headcold, including chesty cough. Felt acid in chest. Now no voice + bad top stomach pain. Fever?

Sounds viral: Cold symptoms followed by loss of voice is almost always viral in nature. The thing that bothers me a bit more is the emphasis you put on "bad pain" in upper abdomen. Any time you have severe pain, it warrants evaluation by a doctor. You could have a viral process such as mono that has caused irritation/enlargement of your liver and/or spleen and that can be quite painful. ...Read more

Systemic viral: Your symptoms have the features of a systemic viral illness. We tend to call this "the flu" though it may well be caused by another virus besides the influenza virus.

Can you please describe the differences in symptoms between appendicitis and upset stomach for kids?

Can you please describe the differences in symptoms between appendicitis and upset stomach for kids?

Intensity/location: Most kids with a soft but tender tummy will not have something bad happening. The appendix is usually sitting next to the upper part of the right thigh muscle, so often a kid that won't walk (from pain in belly or rt leg) or can't hop up/dn may be an appi. The worse the kid looks the more likely he needs to be seen. Even with new tech, half of kids today are ruptured by the time of surgery. ...Read more

Got a headache, feeling sick all the time, upset stomach. Just withdrawn from Tapentadol. Does this sound like withdrawal symptoms?

Got a headache, feeling sick all the time, upset stomach. Just withdrawn from Tapentadol. Does this sound like withdrawal symptoms?

Possibly: Really depends on the dose and how long you were on the drug. During studies less than 5% of the participants had ANY withdrawal signs on stopping from 300 mg daily. Your symptoms are non specific enough to have other causes. Get rest, drink lots of water, eat healthy, become active, and if you can take 2 aspirin (seriously) and you should do fine. ...Read more

Do you know how to stop my symptoms I have vomiting and face rash and upset stomach. And I want some answers on it?

See a doctor: You ask how to stop your symptoms. There are medicines that can decrease vomiting, but it's really more important to find the cause and treat it rather than your symptoms. You need someone to do a good physical exam and possibly order some tests to diagnose and treat you properly. It's not possible to do this over the internet. There are many possible causes. Good luck! ...Read more

Masturbation causing upset stomach, abdominal cramps. These symptoms appear only after masturbating otherwise not. I'm male?

Havin' A Dank Wank?: Man, you must be a lousy masturbater. Or maybe the stuff that comes out turns your stomach. Or you are too vigorous and then have a so-called"vagal" reaction. Or you are fantasizing the end of the Earth. Actually, some men do have rather hefty abdominal contractions during a particularly intense experience but getting sick to the stomach?

Remember to get sleep, drink water and eat healthy (limit fats ; sugars). ...Read more
