Migraines for example can affect both head and gut ("intestinal migraine"). Please however don't contribute to your stomach upset by taking excessive nsaid's aimed at alleviating head ache.

Abdominal pain, bloating and acid indigestion thought to be GERD now followed by constipation/fatigue/nausea - high fibre+omep/ran no effect, causes?

Abdominal pain, bloating and acid indigestion thought to be GERD now followed by constipation/fatigue/nausea - high fibre+omep/ran no effect, causes?

GI: Most common cause is often diet related, however once it gets to this point it is usually dysbiosis. Abnormal bacterial function. I often find patients with candida overgrowth, parasites, helicobacter or other infections when tested. Often when tested the patient has too little acid rather than too much acid in the stomach and digestive enzymes may help. Make sure you see a GI doctor to dx. ...Read more

What could cause rapid weight gain if I recently increased my physical activity? I am also having issues with heartburn and mild fatigue. Related?

Heartburn or angina?: There may be a relationship. The increased activity may be straining your heart---heart burn can be mistaken for heart pain called angina. The weight gain may be fluid retention because of strain on your heart, which also causes fatigue.
Or it could be several unrelated conditions. You need to call your doctor for a check up ---and do it soon. ...Read more

I've got severe, persistent bloating for 3 months with upper left tummy pain, with a loss of appetite, indigestion, general tiredness, constipation??

Food intolerance: Intolerance to lactose or gluten may be the cause of your symptoms. Irritable bowel with constipation rather than diarrhea is a possibility. Try to note whether dairy products are a problem. Take simethicone or mylanta 1/2 hour after meals to prevent gas buildup. Drinking hot (not boiling) water helps break down gas. A gastroenterologist can evaluate and advise you best if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Can do preg. Test: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

Diarrhea vomiting indigestion and fatigue after painting boxes with spray paint and 4 hours with boxes in my car. Do not feel well Can't think clear-?

Diarrhea vomiting indigestion and fatigue after painting boxes with spray paint and 4 hours with boxes in my car. Do not feel well Can't think clear-?

UNLIKELY: Due to paint....did you spray in an "enclosed" area. Once dried the pain may "smell" but it cannot itself make you ill! If you sprayed in an enclosed area this was NOT a "good idea" and you could have a temporary reaction (Nausea etc) INDIGESTION and FATIGUE are NOT due to the painting job!

Hope this helps!

Indigestion N severe fatigue n leg weak. No pain/ulcer. D2 biopsy-villi normal/increase in epithilial lymphocyte/Mild eosinophil infilterate/no organism?

Correlation required: Increased epithelial lymphocytes is suspicious but not diagnostic of gluten enteropathy and your physician will continue testing. That you're vitamin B12 deficient is serious; I'm glad you're supplementing and if you're not a vegetarian, a cause needs to be sought. Leg weakness may be secondary to lack of B12 or some other cause. Continue the workup and maybe get with a dietician & fit-trainer. ...Read more
