4 days I ve a cold with headache. Now it s better and it hurts just when I breathe (left side + eye), a sharpen pain, like when I drink cold. What is?

Viral Infection? Hurt: You had a common cold for 4 days, the cold is better but it hurts to breathe on left side and eye when you drink cold. In my opinion pain on breathing if it is in chest, should be checked by your doctor. Do you have cough or fever Your question is not very clear. It hurts (Where) and eye when you breathe. Get it checked if it hurts in chest, if no pain in Chest, then it may be all due to cold. ...Read more

I was drinking alcohol and I blacked out and fell backwards and hit the back on my head. I have a slight headache, should I go see a doc?

Potentially: How long did you black out for? Is the headache becoming worse and do you have other symptoms? Do you have any nausea or vomiting and has there been any change in your behavior. Alcohol may mask some of these symptoms, so I would say yes...see your doctor. ...Read more

Alcohol = poison: Alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever. So stay away from it.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Got hit in the head at a party sunday have a nagging headache since not sure if mild concussion or seasonal allergies or from drinking too much?

Concussion Diagnosis: Concussion is caused by trauma to the brain. Concussion causes a constellation of symptoms including headache, confusion, nausea, dizziness, mood changes and sleepiness. You can have a loss of consciousness as part of the initial injury but this does not happen in all concussions. Treatment is rest and gradual return to activity. Contact your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I regular drink 2 peg but from last 2 days after drinking I got tight head, red eyes & headache is it because of acidity or something else?

Can I still drink alcohol after bumping my head? CT scan came back normal, only have a slight headache.

Can I still drink alcohol after bumping my head? CT scan came back normal, only have a slight headache.

Possibly: The correct answer depends of several questions, was there a loss of consciousness? Was a concussion diagnosed? We are realizing more and more that" head bumps" especially bad enough to warrent a CT scan, are not without problems. The brain is a fragile organ, trauma and alcohol are both stressors to good function. Best to consult your treating physician. ...Read more

Friend carried 9 foot inflatable pool float in front of me up stairs. Got hit right on top of head from tail end of float. Didn't hurt. Later developed nausea/headache. Was drinking champagne in sun outside w/o much water. Chance of concussion?

Friend carried 9 foot inflatable pool float in front of me up stairs. Got hit right on top of head from tail end of float. Didn't hurt. Later developed nausea/headache. Was drinking champagne in sun outside w/o much water. Chance of concussion?

Low: The inflatable pool float could NOT have been so heavy as to cause any visible bleeding, loss of consciousness, or serious injury, could it? I HIGHLY doubt you had a concussion unless you fell down the stairs & injured yourself some other way. More likely, that champagne & heat dehydrated you. Drink plenty of water & fluids, not alcohol.

Bad stomach pains after eating or drinking any thing, head aches, light headed, feeling weak any ideals what it could be?

Ulcers/gallstones: Abdominal pain associated with food is concerning for gastric/duodenal ulcers and/or gallstone trouble. Panreatitis is also a possibility. If u have not been able to eat/drink, u could be dehydrated and thus headaches/dizziness etc. Significant irritable bowel syndrome can do same, but usually this is a long-persistent issue. Pepcid/prilosec may help. I would consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
