heartburn

Avatar f tn Again i dony say this to scare you but i wish i had known the symptoms of a gallstone are similiar to heartburn and gallstones are more common in pregnant women who have had previous pregnancies as your organs shift to make room for baby.
198627 tn?1203057607 Tagamet or Cimetidine are 2 over the counter meds that work well for heartburn. Only you know how much pain your in. If you can't stand it, get to the ER.
Avatar n tn People who have heartburn in their families will have heartburn as a major issue. See - the body works like a machine --- and the liver cures or cleans the oil that lubes that machine.
Avatar n tn Do Not drink a lot of water when you are having heartburn. Water dilutes the acid and makes it rise closer to the esophagus. Milk is great. It is the calcium that controls the heartburn. Think about it, what are tums - calcium. Def try milk. I have Gastro Esophogeal Reflux Disease and am 17 weeks pg with #2. I have erosions in my esophagus from heartburn, its horrible.
Avatar n tn symptoms can include frequent urinating, or the feeling of it, burning while urinating, drink lots of water, cranberry juice, Pregnant women are more prone to it also.. As for heartburn, thats common too in pregnancy. You tend not to be comfortable as the pregnancy progresses due to added weight what ever posititon is comfortable take it!.Usually they say sleeping on the left side is best for baby when your further along. Ask a question any time!
Avatar n tn The worst heartburn I've ever had in my life was in my first 4-7 weeks of pregnancy. It would wake me up at night and I would have to sit and wait for it to calm down. Sometimes eating helped, sometimes drinking a lot of water helped. Once, using a thumper-type massager on my back helped! I took liquid Mylanta (original formula) once, -- even though it is not highly recommended during pregnancy, it is not absolutely forbidden -- and it did help.
Avatar n tn NBCT, Thanks for the post. Q1:" ...if something like an event recorder can detect changes in a rythmn strip if someone uses it during an episode of subtle symptoms like back pain, shoulder pain, lightheadedness, or palpitations?" Event recorders are good at detecting changes in rhythm, but bad at detecting changes that might indicate ischemia (def: inadequate blood flow). Q2:"Would changes related to ischemia be obvious at that time, or is a twelve lead the best method?
Avatar f tn Heartburn, Fatigue, Nausea, Back Pain, Sciatic Pain, And Pelvic/ Vaginal Pain. I.e. MISERABLE!
Avatar n tn nausea, pain in right and left uppr abdomen and sharp pain the middle of my back-right side thankyou!!
Avatar f tn Hi Riley, I'm just 5 wks along and have similar symptoms- sore nips and heavy sore bb- especially when I'm in bed and turn over! I get period like cramps every few hours...come and go in a couple of mins. Also, if I stand up too quickly, I get light headed.. Just waiting for the morning (more like all day) sickness to hit! I had it last time I was pregnant when I attended my 7wks scan so I'm expecting it next week! Uurrggh!
216278 tn?1308864682 but I have gotten BFP twice before and both times, I had a very noticeable increase in thirst. The last time, I also had mild but very consistent heartburn that ended up lasting the entire pg and got more intense as it went along.
Avatar n tn So of course (and I KNOW not to do this!!) I google unexplained heartburn and BAM...it's shows women and heart disease. I have had this burning more often than not lately but not for this long without a break. Last night I had I think "mini" panic attacks as the crazy feeling came in waves until I fell asleep praying that it would stop. Anyway, this burning is so bad it is distracting. I can't concentrate on anything.
Avatar n tn I recently questioned if hormones were connected to heartburn. I googled "hormones heartburn" and this was the general result: Pregnancy hormones, estrogen and progesterone, can cause the lower esophageal sphincter (the muscular valve between the stomach and esophagus, or LES) to relax, allowing stomach acids to splash back up into the esophagus. In addition, the enlarged uterus can crowd the abdomen, pushing stomach acids upward.

299260 tn?1304219705 ) Having very little to no symptoms, kinda makes me think it didn't work, but we'll see. I'm trying to still think positive. Well I better get ready for work. Keep your fingers crossed for me :) Hope you all have a wonderful Monday...
299260 tn?1304219705 For instance, a number of essential oils aren't good for pregnant women. Also, too much vitamin A, even in over-the-counter preparations (usually called retinyl or some version of that word), should be avoided. Even witch hazel, according to a seemingly well-versed woman in the health food store, should be used with restraint. I am currently using Weleda's rose soap and rose eye cream, both approved by the database.
Avatar m tn FEMALE HEART ATTACKS I was aware that female heart attacks are different, but this is the best description I've ever read. Women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms that men have ... you know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest & dropping to the floor that we see in movies. Here is the story of one woman's experience with a heart attack.
192291 tn?1345403735 He didn't even need a haircut until he was 18 months old! I've had more heartburn this time and earlier on, it started in the second trimester. I don't know what we're having....but I"m pretty sure that heartburn, like many other pregnancy symptoms, doesn't indicate one gender over the other.
Avatar n tn I have had anxiety that seemed associated with heartburn too. I treated the heartburn with 1/2 tsp of baking soda in 1/2 glass warm water,(it will cause you to burp because it is neutralizing the acid) and the anxiety seemed to lessen.
299260 tn?1304219705 my heartburn was awful. then once i got rid of the heartburn the pregnancy carpel tunnel kicked in which was extremely painful. but its all worth it in the long run. i hope you glucose test went well.
299260 tn?1304219705 ) I hope it's a BFP in the making, that would be awesome! But hopefully you get other symptoms everyday, b/c I don't know about you, but I HATE throwing up! :) There's been times with this little one that I've wanted to, but I stick it out and suffer with the nausea! I only got sick a couple times with Kayln, so hopefully it'll be the same with this one! :) Come on BFP!!
299260 tn?1304219705 was told last wednesday that they saw twin sacs but no heartbeats...also in the last 2 days my pregnancy symptoms are fading and Im getting more nervous and upset by the minute. I had a beautiful day yesterday as we celebrated out wedding anniversary and today I woke up already thinking about tomorrow. I have to have another beta at 7am then the u/s at 9am.
299260 tn?1304219705 But normally all my AF pain is in my lower back. It's a trait in my family. All the women have 100% back labor and we all have back cramps during AF. Weird. But this time my lower back is sore... but not cramping. All my cramps are just little twinge cramps in my abdomen. Way low, so I know it's not my stomach. So I don't know what that's about yet. We'll see in a few days. We're supposed to test on Sunday. Not much longer to wait now!

299260 tn?1304219705 The only thing that worries me are the symptoms I'm having. Bad headaches/migraines, heartburn, gettings sick in the mid morning afternoon almost every day (for the last 3 days), weird appetite. When I'm hungry I'm HUNGRY. When I'm not hungry, I don't want to even think about food. Plus I'm still having bad O pain and hot flashes. So I feel all over the place right now. I've been documenting everything in my journal so I can talk to the doctor about it when we go in.
