gastroenteritis

693811 tn?1245875306 The hospital I work in has had a very slow moving gastroenteritis going through patients and staff. I thought I had that already and it was just gut pain and was relieved with much yogurt. This virus seems to have a long incubation period. It's nothing like Norwalk.
Avatar m tn I'm a 22-year-old male, with a history of stress-induced Irritable Bowel Syndrome and GERD (when I'm feeling psychologically well, they go away!), and moderately hypochondriac. A long-time phobia of mine is, of course, appendicitis and the subsequent appendectomy that appears to be the necessary course of action in most such cases.

Avatar f tn as i have lost about 32 pounds in the past 5-6 weeks.. not on purpose!!! i just woke up one day.. and had no appetite.. and even when i force myself to eat.. which by the way is VERY healthy.. i just keep losing weight. i have been anemic before.. but.. not with my other labs being so normal. I am confused.. why would my iron be that low.. but the HGB and HCT be so normal? I thought that i had stopped losing weight at around 120... but then one night i started having stomach cramps...
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with gerd about 2 years ago. I have lost weight and elevated my bed. I only have coffee at breakfast and have limited my alcohol intake to only weekends and in moderation then. I do not have heartburn, but have had a continuing chest congestion which is normally only a bother. I have taken omeprazole twice aday which seems to control every symptom except the chest congestion.
Avatar f tn Worst times seem to be in the morning and at bedtime. So, he throws up in his bed quite a bit too. He has GERD. He has been tested for gastroenteritis, had done an upper GI, a CT and also endoscopy with normal results. Sometimes he can eat yogurt no problem - but other times he throws it up alot (now). We dont see any patterns with food. We tried him on Pediasure and he did not do well. It did not seem to digest. He is also on Prevacid once a day (am). Any ideas?
Avatar n tn He is diangnosed with GERD and eosinophilic gastroenteritis. he has severe chest pain, backwash of stomach contents into his throat, nausea, and severe diarrhea. We have followed all the tips for living with GERD but has been geting increasingly worse. He was taking Prilosec 3 times a day for 8 weeks with no help. Now taking Nexium 2 times a day.
Avatar f tn they did an endoscopy, cat scan, barium swallow, ultra sound and blood tests and nothing showed and the doctors are lost.. other then Gerd(which I was dianoised with years ago) they have no idea and with my meds and eatting properly my gerd should be well under control. I am still waiting on test results from a hydro-scan to see if it may be my gallbladder but they said it was unlikely because it should have showed in my ultrasound. I am completely physically and emotionally wiped.

Avatar f tn I felt very nauseous for about a week even though i slowly began to start eating it always felt as though something was stuck in my throat, and I'd experience a pain in my chest (I have never been a suffer or heartburn) Now, i must add I had a major surgery a few years ago, and since then i have slowly developed issues with my digestive system and have IBS. I am gluten free, and i don't eat diary. I have been this way for a year now..
96108 tn?1197694930 Hi, I am 36 years old. I was diagnosed with Gerd and IBS approx 6 years ago. My gerd and IBS has been acting up for the past 3-4 months pretty badly. Worse than I ever remember. I have been having episodes where I have been having alot of tenderness in my stomach. It hurts to the touch. I feel like I have to have a bowel movement. When I go it is just a small,soft amount. I still feel like I have to go however I can't. I have heartburn stomach aches, terrible bloating and gas.
6465663 tn?1382973090 I have an upset stomach and pain that comes and goes that hurts kinda like contractions going on for 3 days and for two days my chest hurts and when I feel like iam about to vomit nothing happens I tried helping my self but nothing it feels like having something stock in my throat and not letting me vomit. I feel so miserable iam scared because of my right hand hurting a bit and headache and my left foot burning please someone help.
Avatar n tn I had it in 1996 and a few weeks of meds called a Prev Pak cleared it up. I also have erosive GERD but it does not cause nausea and pain, H Pylori can. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn Irritable bowel disease, gastroenteritis, and colitis can all lead to bloating. Imaging with a CT scan can evaluate for colitis. If there are changes in bowel habits, a colonoscopy can be performed for a more thorough evaluation. If the discomfort is in the upper abdomen, you can consider an upper endoscopy to exclude GERD, inflammation or an ulcer. These options can be discussed with your personal physician, or in conjunction with a GI physician.
Avatar f tn If the foods that are making it worse correspond to those found to cause problems in persons with GERD recheck with your doc that H. pylori is not present and that you may not be experiencing symtpoms of GERD.
168348 tn?1379360675 It beats writing it down with pencil and paper and trying to communicate the details to your GI, etc. I am just putting in all the info and then will have it to bring or e-mail my doc right before my son's next appt. This is amazing ---to use for GERD, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, Crohn's & IBS fabulous as well as for your own issues .... I'm using it for Gastroenteritis type symptoms.

Avatar f tn I did the test which showed GERD and a hiatal hernia (a small one). During all this time, I was always feeling sick and was prescribed different anti-emetics. I could barley eat much do to not feeling hungry. I would get shooting pain in my upper abdomen but not in my chest. Fast forward to beginning of December. I went to an Immediate Care place and they took my blood. Blood showed a bit of increase in liver enzymes and they suggested I get my gall bladder looked at.
Avatar n tn There are many listervs with migraine sufferers and epileptics mourning hair loss and topomax---and their neurologists' denial of the relationship. I located a PDR, and it does list alopecia as a "less common side effect". I decided to pursue expert neurologists at a research university 3 hours away from me for help---and a medication switch. They denied my hair loss could be due to the topomax, flatly, and recommended I use Head and Shoulders.
1788584 tn?1315110118 The just gave me Zofran (I got the generic version because I'm uninsured). On thursday and friday I never threw up and ate a decent amount but the symptoms never totally went away. It is now saturday and I threw up this morning, but since have been able to hold down food, however the numbness did come back but not at it's worse. I'm pretty sure I have acid reflux or gerd on top of that but occurring previously.
Avatar f tn First I was feeling nauseas, gassy and tender stomach. Went to my Dr and she said it was Gastritis and put me on Kapidex 2x a day for 3 days and then once a day thereafter. The next day my lower back has starting hurting. I went in on Tuesday for pain in the back and she prescribed naxoprene and a muscle relaxer. The pain went away once from the pain medicine and now does nothing. I've been having bouts of diarrhea and then constipation also.
Avatar n tn 16 months ago I went to the emergency room due to severe abdominal pain and vomiting, and several days ago, out of the blue and to my horror, it happened again. Both times it was sudden, beginning with something like heartburn and gas pains, then very rapidly becoming so extreme, extending from my chest to my pelvic region, that I could barely withstand the pain...truly just short of making me lose consciousness.
Avatar n tn First and foremost is the possibility of gastroenteritis. Gastroenteritis is an irritation and infection of the digestive tract. It can often cause sudden and sometimes violent upsets and may be confused with spastic colitis.
Avatar n tn There could be many causes for this, the most common are gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastroenteritis. You should see a physician or gastroenterologist.
Avatar n tn I can't imagine living with this pain and nausea like this and for it to only get worse. Has anyone else had any similar symptoms or any advise please??? Thank you!!!
Avatar m tn for the past 3 weeks i have had severe stomach pains which progress to nausea and vomiting. my dad is a doctor and suggested zantac. i used that with brioschi for a couple days and it was not very helpful. he then said to use prilosec. i am on my 8th day and it helped for a few days but has stopped working. the severe stomach pain continues to evolve into vomiting. i am not eating foods that should trigger problems. my dad suspects an ulcer from h pylori, but the treatment has not helped.

Avatar n tn I spent 4 days in the hospital with electrolytes out of balance due to dehydration from uncontrollable diahrrea and vomiting; diagnosed as Acute Gastroenteritis. A year ago I began having intermittent bouts of vomiting bile every few months. Have been on all PPI's and Acid Reflux controlled pretty well but still have vomiting episodes. What's your recommendation? This leaves me wiped out for a couple of days with tenderness in stomach and right abdomen.
Avatar n tn Hello, The bowel problems of diarrhea,dizziness and nausea may be due to GERD(gastro esophageal reflux disease), acute non-GI infections (pyelonephritis, pneumonia),gastroenteritis,liver diseases, pancreatic disorder,peptic disease of upper GI tract,gastric carcinoma,CNS diseases like infections, tumors, multiple sclerosis and metabolic disturbances like diabetes and adrenal insufficiency. Gastroenteritis can be a strong possibility as you were also having it prior to your wife.
Avatar f tn I answed a post with causes today, look for it. Gastroenteritis can be very close minded and do not look for the cause, just push drugs.
