Can umbilical hernia cause nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, weightloss, strained bowel movemnt (even with loose stools)? Surgeon app. End of month.

Can umbilical hernia cause nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, weightloss, strained bowel movemnt (even with loose stools)? Surgeon app. End of month.

Probably not all: Probably not all of those symptoms are related to an umbilical hernia. Most umbilical hernias are small and do not cause that much discomfort, naseua, fatigue, weight loss, etc. If it is really large, it can start having some of those symptoms. But in general, I doubt the unbilical hernia is causing all those symptoms. Good luck at the appt. ...Read more

Possibly: You may be having an adverse reaction to the pen v or you may be taking pen vk which contains potassium to which some are very sensitive. Or you may be experiencing changes in intestinal flora secondary to antibiotics. Since you are not likely to be taking this for more than 10 days, if it continues see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more

For 5 days I have been experiencing intermittent stomach pain, slight chills and loose stools mainly after eating, constant nausea, some burping.

See a doctor soon: You should see a gastrointestinal doctor very soon or even be cleared in the er. Stomach ulcers, gastritis, esophagitis, kidney stones with or without infection and appendicitis should all be ruled out. With the chills, one would wonder about a fever or blood infection. Diarrhea makes an intestinal infection a possibility. Get the necessary blood work, exam, x-rays and stool and urine cultures. ...Read more

I belch a lot these days specially after food since 4 days. Now I have diarrhea what it could be from btw belching like 3times/5 to 10 mins thanks?

Gastric reflux: You are probably having reflux (backing up) of stomach acid into your food pipe (esophagus) which is causing the belching. It is happening right after eating because stomach acid production starts with food entering the stomach. You need to try medications like Maalox, Mylanta, Pepcid (famotidine) AC, Prilosec OTC which can help symptoms. You also need to stay upright at least 45 minutes after eating. ...Read more

Nausea, dizziness, slight headache and loose stools for the past week.

Seek help: The concerning part of your history is the dizziness. If you are having significant amounts of loose stool/diarrhea and limited oral intake, it's possible that your are dehydrated with low blood pressure.

Gastroenteritis?: Assuming you haven't left the country or been eating raw meats, it is likely you have food poisoning or perhaps a viral gastroenteritis. I would go to your GP or GI doctor if choice and have your stool checked. For this acute if a presentation, food or virus seems most likely. Start yourself on the BRAT diet - bananas, rice, Apple, tea. To improve your loose stools and avoid dairy for a few days ...Read more

I've been very bloated and gassy for days, nausea for 2 weeks and loose stools for about 3 days. Stools are now bright green. Is sometging going on?

GI: There are a multitude of diseases that could be causing your symptoms. Some of the more common include a viral/bacterial enteritis, gallbladder disease, inflammatory bowel disease or others. I would suggest you visit your primary care provider so they can begin by doing a diagnostic work-up as some of these diseases can be serious and require more than symptomatic treatment. ...Read more

Recently, I had two occasions where after eating beans I either had loose stools and/or vomiting. Is this an allergic reaction or food poisoning?

Aller allerg: The title wouldn't let me type in allergic. You are likely having an anaphylactic reaction to beans and need to avoid them. One need to rule out peanut allergy as well and you need to consider having epinephrine autoinjector at all times in case of accidental exposure to beans. Consult an allergist since you likely have nasal and/or respiratory allergies as well. ...Read more

Fever: Your fevers are nonspecific and not clearly related to the barretts or malabsorption syndrome as neither of these conditions are usually accompanied by post prandial fever. Are other symptoms like abdominal pain, sweats and chills or cough also occurring then? Infection or noninfectious inflammation are to be considered. See your MD for further evaluation and testing. ...Read more
