Not clear : there are many structures in your abdomen that we have to consider more.. It could be your gallbladder, it could be your pancreas and could be stomach, could be the duodenum, it could be many of these structures. Need to see a gastroenterologist and clarify these issues. Muscle pain can be a cause of abdominal pain but that has to be evaluated. You can discuss this with your physician and a gastr ...Read more

Cut down on eating: Best way to lose weight is to eat less and keep going down steadily and you will see your weight come down slowly. But you have to persist with this effort for a long time. It is not a short term thing. Continue to increase walking and stay active all day. Then you will see the results in one or two months. Also record and write down your weight every week, so you can see the progress you are maki. ...Read more
My daughter is extremely obese how can she lose weight when she is too fat to walk so she has to go in a wheel chair because she is fat?
Change her diet: The most important part of weight management is developing healthy eating habits. The stop light diet is a good start. Kids have the advantage of still growing so sometimes maintaining their weight as they grow is sufficient. If you are able use water aerobics, swimming or water therapy to start her on an exercise routine that's suitable for her abilities. Be a good example for your daughter. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am 38f obese. Wt285. Fatty liver with borderline heptomegly. I am losing 4 lbs a wk. I am dieting and walking how do I slow it down?
You are right: Ideally when losing weight with fatty liver disease you want to avoid excessively fast weight loss - there is evidence to keep weight loss at a rate less than 3.5lbs/week; as too rapid weight loss can make things worse. This means you may need to back off a bit on your caloric restriction and/ or be mindful of the vigorousness of your exercise. Though it sounds like you are making great strides. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Needs evaluation: Impossible to say just from your symptoms. At 26, unless you are a very heavy smoker, have been smoking for a very long time, or have unusual sensitivity, it would be uncommon to have significant lung problems, but it is possible. Something else may be causing it as well. Only a health care provider, taking a history and doing an examination, plus getting necessary tests, can give you answers. ...Read more

I have lost 55 lbs since march because i found out I have a fatty liver from obesity. My question is it possible to lose weight without exercise? I started new job and haven't been able to walk in several days
Break up exercise: To help lose weight, you still need 150minutes per week of exercise. You can break up this time as 15 minute intervals (everyone can do that) to help accomplish this goal. I usually recommend about 1200cal/day with one 500cal meal at night and three 200cal snacks for the day. Drink alot of water (0.5oz per pound you weigh) to help with the positive results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Needs evaluation: This could be any number of things - and should be properly evaluated by a doctor with questioning (history), physical exam, labs and studies. The list of possible diseases is long, but hopefully as you point out relatively mild in presentation. If you can't get an appointment with your primary doctor right away, you might want to connect with a Health Tap doc here for a virtual consult. ...Read more
I am an obese person, i get burning rashes between the legs due to friction when i walk more. It continues paining. Kindly suggest anasthatic cream.
Zinc oxide: An anesthetic cream is not the answer. You have to treat the problem. The best remedy is obviously to try to lose some weight but i'm sure you are doing this. Try to rub zinc oxide paste on the part of the thighs that are rubbing. This is a great skin lubricant that will stay on your skin and continue to help all day. When the rash is bad, try rubbing 1% Hydrocortisone cream under the zinc. ...Read more

Exercise: It appears that all of your cardiac tests are normal, and that is very good. I do not see that you listed any lung evaluations, such as pulmonary function tests. This is a suggestion if you continue to have air hunger, as PFT can diagnose asthma or other lung conditions. This may be a matter of being out of shape because of your being overweight. See your doctor for an individualized exercise RX ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
WHY?: Lorazapam is used to treat stress mainly, so it is odd you can not walk without it.
