I have been constipated lately. Can constipation also cause acid reflux symptoms? If so, why?

Generally not: If your usually regular, and now constipated, number of causes. Drink more fluids--water, fruit juices, do more physical activity, if there remains a change in your lower bowel activity for a month, see your pcp, who will likely refer you to a GI doc. By age 50, should have colonscopy anyway.. Acid reflux involves the upper GI tract, and likely the 2 problems are unrelated. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of constipation for 2 mnt old baby?and how does constipated stool look like for baby?skipping 2 days in a week is constipation?

Constipation: is defined as less than 1 stool every 5 days. I can tell you from father as well as doctor experience that pooping is a skill that babies have to learn. At first, it will seem that they strain and struggle, but eventually they will figure it out. Breast fed babies usually get it sooner, but eventually, they all do. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Have a sharp on off pain in the lower middle abdomen and sometimes it's in my right side I just finished a period I'm not constipated no other symptom?

Check it out: I would want in this case to check your urine to assure there was no infection or evidence for irritation in your urinary tract. Also an exam might give a hint. Sharp pain is a good indicator though to get it checked out. Lot's of possibilities exist. ...Read more

Could be : Could be constipation. Inrease fiber in your diet, try to have bowel movement on a regular basis, once daily or every other day. If still constipated with high- fibe diet you can try miralax (polyethylene glycol). See your doctor for a complete evaluation and treatment of this problem. ...Read more

My wife had vomiting and diarrhea, but I only have nausea and seem to be constipated. Could this be a symptom of being dehydrated?

My wife had vomiting and diarrhea, but I only have nausea and seem to be constipated. Could this be a symptom of being dehydrated?

Dehydration: Yes, constipation is a sign of dehydration. Even if you are not vomiting, you are probably eating less due to nausea, and that can cause mild dehydration. You can survive without food much longer than you can survive without water, so it is very important to drink first, before you eat anything. Intolerance of fluids and food can rapidly cause severe dehydration, so monitor intake carefully. ...Read more

New symptom. No periods for 6mths feel constipated (I'm not) tummy pain leg pain all getting worse over last 4days now sickness. Neg preg test.

Amenorrhea: Sounds like you haven't ovulated the last few months. You may be getting ready to have a really heavy bleed. I usually tell my patients don't go more than three months without a period. I would suggest you see a GYN for a work up and a provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawal. If you can't get into a GYN, see if your family physician can prescribe the provera (medroxyprogesterone). You may be in for heavy and/or prolonged bleeding. ...Read more

I am trying to conceive. Haven't tested yet. I had constipation and loose stool in one trip. Now im just constipated and have sore nipples. Good sign?

Difficult to tell: Gastrointestinal symptoms like constipation or diarrhea, or sore nipples are not good predictors of pregnancy. Actually there are no really good symptoms signs that point to pregnancy. The only really good sign is when you don't have your period when it is due. The best course of action is to take a pregnancy test one week after the first day you miss your period to help determine if your preg. ...Read more

Constipation and nausea can occur as well as feeling tired, urinating more often, loss of period, vomiting, headaches, insomnia, swollen or tender breasts, increased gas etc. If you believe you are pregnant you can take a standard home pregnancy test as soon as you miss your period. Take care. ...Read more

Bowel movements: It is not unusual for it to take a while for the bowel movements to return to normal after a stretch of diarrhea. As you transition off of the brat diet, you should add more and more fiber to your diet until your stools are normal. Good luck. ...Read more

Constipation happens: Unless you have been sexually active, using no protection, and have not been having regular periods this is likely just constipation. Eating something bad in of itself is not the cause of constipation alone. Good luck! ...Read more
