Your: Your appetite can vary during pregnancy. A feeling of fullness is common as well, but usually much later in the pregnancy. This issue should be brought to your doctor's attention. The bloating is typical but all your symptoms combined could be something more than pregnancy related symptoms. Things such as reflux, gallstones, fibroids, etc need to be ruled out.
Good luck. ...Read more

What is the optimal serum ferritin level for hair health? Can heavy periods and/or a vegetarian diet w/inadequate iron intake cause low ferritin level

Possible GI 'bug': You may have a gastrointestinal 'bug' such as a viral infection leading to the vomiting. This is often accompanied by dizzy/lightheadedness because of fluid loss, so be sure to drink extra fluids to keep hydrated! Dizziness and vomiting can also be caused by other problems, so if you do not start to feel better within another day or so, you should be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more

Plan B effect: Plan b is essentially taking a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns in your body to delay or present ovulation. An abnormal period afterwards is not surprising. A pregnancy test should be done 14 days after plan b. The test is accurate at that point. Start birth control to prevent another scare. ...Read more

I have taken 4500mg of ampiclox within the last two days to avoid getting pregnant. I had unprotected sex a week earlier and used the postinor single pill twice the next day after sex. I am yet to see my period. Pls am I pregnant and will the intake of su

Probably not: If you took postinor the day after having unprotected sex, then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. Stop taking the ampiclox, you have taken too much already, and it is doubtful that you need this medication. Try to relax. If you are very concerned about the possibility of pregnancy then protect yourself in the future by using a reliable birth control method to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more

5/10 Headache at mid left back of head. Bp 130/80, normal stress echo, agatston 0.5, period in 5 days; due to lack of sleep and water intake?

Mixed up Issues: Comments are on many separate issues from an organ system viewpoint. Stress tests, all methods, totally miss arterial disease until complications of advanced disease (plaque ruptures, clots, heart damage) have already occurred, thus very low value. Does Agatston 0.5 refer to coronary calcium by CT (better, earlier indicator of disease; optimal Zero & less)? Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body issues complex. ...Read more

Both knees start to red-din/blotch and get very warm with alcohol ingestion and long periods of standing. Is this normal? No pain, full rom, no injur

Not sure: Alcohol causes dilation of the capillaries in our skin, and reddened or blotchy skin is not uncommon. Why it would particularly effect your knees, I have no clue, and do not recall having a patient with this particular complaint.
Long periods of standing certainly can cause strain on the knees, sometimes with a little swelling, but one would expect a little pain with this. Suggest seeing your md. ...Read more
