You : You should see your primary care doctor as well as your ob/gyn. You may simply be dealing with heartburn as a result of your pregnancy, however more serious issues need to be ruled out. An ekg (electrocardiogram) and possibly an ultrasound of your heart will rule out a cardiac cause. Lastly, the Prilosec may take about a week or so to work. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Congratulations on your pregnancy. You may be feeling your baby kicking. Quickening is when you first feel the baby kicking. It is not uncommon to feel your baby between 16 to 22 weeks. Sometimes it is hard to tell what is going on. Was that gas or was that the baby? You should be able to feel the baby's movements more vigorously as your pregnancy progresses. The baby is moving well before your third trimester. It can be moving around by the 7th to 8th week, but you would not be able to feel it that early. Take care. ...Read more

The back of my throat is yellow and I have huge difficulties swallowing to the point where I do not want to eat. What is this?

Pharyngitis: It sounds like you have some type of infection in your throat. With severe pain upon swallowing and pus, this could be any number of types of infection, though. It could be a standard strep throat, but there are much worse possibilities like chlamydia or other microbes causing this. You most likely are going to need to see your FP for a look, maybe a culture, and certainly, treatment! ...Read more

I have a sharp pain in both the ovaries during the 1st week I have my period and sometimes, the week before. It hurts to do anything that involves moving. Why is this?

I have a sharp pain in both the ovaries during the 1st week I have my period and sometimes, the week before. It hurts to do anything that involves moving. Why is this?

Pelvic pain: It's hard for someone to localize where the pain originates... Ovary, tube, uterus, bowel, bladder, etc... Ovarian pain from ovulation is usually earlier (2 wks before period starts) depending on the length of your cycle. Yours sounds more like premenstrual symptoms. If u have no medical issues and can take ibuprofen, u can try taking it prophylactically before the pain begins. ...Read more

What is the reason for feeling I guess vessels in my left and right breast in the same position? I do not have any children.

What is the reason for feeling I guess vessels in my left and right breast in the same position? I do not have any children.

Breast "feeling": Breast "feeling" composition is 'tricky" as there are milk ducts, fat, fibrous tissue and sometimes nodules. I can't answer whether those are vessels or not without a physical exam, but you should see a MD and get an accurate breast exam done if you are unsure. Breast cancer knows no age limit. ...Read more

I am just entering my third trimester of pregnancy and have been experienceing shortness of breath especially while laying down to sleep, is thete anything I can do to make this better? Is it common?

Cannot self diagnose: There are simple reasons for this (like big uterus pushing on nearby structures). And there are complex conditions that can cause shortness of breath and can affect mom and baby. Obs want to know if a pregnant woman is having problems so they can check on the wellbeing of her and the baby. Most likely everything is ok, but why wait? Calling an OB could lead to relief of worry and symptoms. ...Read more
