Vomiting blood medical terminology

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting blood medical terminology


357965 tn?1197306864 I have been told a few times, but medical terminology doesn't register in my mind. I know I can't afford to be careless, but at the same time, I guess I am just scared by those big words. I keep getting major, major numbness in my hands and feet/ toes and fingers. Diabetes is HHUUGGEEE in my family and I am wondering if that is what's going on with me in that respect? For years now, I have had major, major abdominal pains. Nausea and vomiting usually comes with that chronic abdominal pain.
Avatar n tn I had some blood work done and my results came back today. I checked them online. Four of them showed positive/abnormal and I'm waiting to see if they are going to call me. But based on the component name of the tests done, I've been going online to find the what the terminology means. I showed a positive on "SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS". Who knows what that is. I looked this up in yahoo and it shows so many things and it really starts to freak me out.
Avatar f tn com/article/1186872-overview I know it sounds like a bunch of medical terminology but it was the best i could find. I put the meanings of the terms in parentheses for you. Hope this helps some for your symptoms. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I will try my best to find an answer for you. I would like to mention I am not a doctor and this is just info from research online. I'm sorry to hear what you are going through, it must be frightening.
1438638 tn?1304950057 Hi Forum Friends :) I have noticed that some of you have talked about nausea. I went to lunch with my sisters today and enjoyed my seafood teryaki but then promptly threw it up. Sorry but this discussion's a little messy-gross but I think you guys can handle it. Anyway, since my second weight loss surgery, my stomach is pretty small. I'm glad about that but sometimes if I eat a little too much or I eat and drink too soon together, it comes up.
Avatar n tn A number of times a gastroenterologist is able to diagnose these conditions by clinical examination and detailed medical history. At other times a few tests are conducted. Blood tests to rule out anemia and stool test to look for white blood cells. Braium meal and follow through, endoscopy etc are done to rule out GERD, Crohn’s disease etc. Irritable bowel syndrome is diagnosed by elimination of other causes. Gluten is a complex protein present in four main grains---wheat, rye, barley and oats.
Avatar n tn Sorry for not clarifying better, I've always had generalized headaches with nausea growing up, but last year they changed to pain in back of head, and pressure/pain behind eyes. I would rate some of the headaches 8-10, VERY INTENSE. I often have nausea and vomiting with them, Neuro gave me Midrin, but it doesn't really help.
1422615 tn?1334067834 If you spot for two days and are pregnant, then doc may say that isn't a period and have some medical terminology for it. The medical world has to take everything else in your life at that time into consideration as well (like on/off birth control, health problems, etc.) to properly diagnose what the bleeding actually is. I had a period (vaginal bleeding) for 3 weeks and went to the doctor to find out I'm 6 weeks pregnant.
Avatar m tn Normal day, at night attack began resulting in vomiting (not out of stomach pain, but out of the sensations) Felt as if needed to go to hospital, but shook it off. Continued happening and has not ceased. No symptoms present before onset (or at least no awareness of symptoms). In general, very difficult to describe.
Avatar n tn Progestrone is supposed to decrease your changes of a miscarriage by creating (sorry for the lack of medical terminology)a better environment for the fertilized egg. The only side affects I was having is that I was extremely sleepy. I was only taking 50 mg of Prometrium. But taking it at night right before bed is the way to go. I also tried the cream... was a little less tired... but perfer taking a pill. If the doctor is recommending for you to take it to prevent a miscarriage...
Avatar n tn Good luck let me know the outcome. What symptoms are you experiencing? (if any). Wonder what the difference is between "enlarged" and "narrowing" medical terminology is awful. They just expect us to KNOW what they are talking about and then they tell us "don't worry" yea right....
Avatar n tn My friend is a 35 year old female with the following medical condition: -recently diagnosed with a prolactin level of 255 -has suffered from diverticulitis for many years and is unable to find a physician with any solution -daily and chronic nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting -severe headaches and blurred vision Her inability to locate a physician that can help her is not for lack of trying.
Avatar n tn Ask the doctor to prescribe you Allegra, or non-drowsy anti-histamine. I can't give you the medical terminology, but it has something to do with "drying up" the area in the head (inner ear) that causes this. I have been hospitalized with vertigo before (until I knew what the problem was). Dizziness, nausea, hyperventilating etc... the whole thing. Taking Allegra during the "vertigo season" (late summer) totally prevents them from coming on at all.
931217 tn?1283484935 The American Veterinary Medical Association and the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association, including the vast majority of their individual members, recommend that pet owners do not feed such diets, as the risks are just too high. I emphasize, that while a small minority of veterinarians may disagree, the vast majority of mainstream veterinary doctors do not recommend raw meat diets for animals.
Avatar n tn When he went in for his checkup this week, the doctor detected a significant heart murmur (which the doc said was a grade or type 3). As I work in the medical field, I do know that heart murmurs are just a symptom of a problem, not the problem itself. Is developing a heart murmur during or at the completion of combination therapy a common/uncommon occurrence? Could it be that just coming off all the meds could be causing it or could damage have been done to his heart by the meds?
335728 tn?1331418012 Tanks for the medical terminology lesson... ha ha! Well I figure I will just wait and see what happens...doesn't look like I have much choice. I think I will send a note to my "Good" Neuro (he he) and see what he has to say. I will drop you a line if there is any change and here's hoping I don't have any disasters! Thanks for your help Mama Quix...feels so good to know you are always there when we really need you!
Avatar n tn It was then I went to see my doctor who ran blood tests and an ekg which all came out fine. however, these bouts continued and i began to take sudafed because i had a cold and something seemed to work because after a few weeks i had no more spells and i even cancelled the appointment with the neurologist. These spells stopped for around a month but have restarted and are worse than before.
1913232 tn?1361457689 I go to transplant support meetings and see a therapist and talk about my fears, worries, death and all the emotions this disease will makes you feel and think about. I looked up medical college froedert in Milwaukee. That is where you need to be. So I am glad you got connected with them! Finding a transplant center is the first and most important step. Congratulations! They will do a full evaluation of your liver disease and general health and get you on their transplant list.

416285 tn?1207175516 When I stopped drinking milk, the vomiting subsided. We've steered him toward lactose free milk ever since, but he still can tolerate, to some degree, dairy products. His bouts have been so bad lately, though, I think I'm going to only get soy ice cream and cheese products. So, Hasbro told us IBS and didn't offer a whole lot of solutions except to eat fiber. I was fed up by last Christmas and took him to Boston Children's Hospital.
3172665 tn?1344192835 I am a national certified medical assistant so not only do i know most medical terminology I can also identify a lot of issues she might face during treatment. (not that that is a huge help from 2000 miles away... but i do what i can from talking to her and after a while from talking to her doc as well.) Pooh I have not read your post yet because i just got it while i was typing. Thanks to all of you...
Avatar n tn that's why the blood the next day freaked me out, b/c it was blood on or from my penis, and i'm not sure if it was his blood or not. i believe in order for him to pass HIV to me, there would have to be blood present, to pass into my urethra, correct? i know the chance is somewhat remote, but since i did spot blood the next morning, of course i'm freaked, especially given my symptoms.
Avatar n tn There is a medical name for this but I forget the exact terminology. I did obviously have a concussion with more severe nuerological injuries. I should have sought other medical advice but at the time he seemed to know the answers. His answer to everything over the years prior to this incident was to persrcibe antibiotics.
9088869 tn?1401643539 I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism a few weeks ago and the doc put me on Methimazole. I went back today for blood work and an ultrasound. The results were that my TSH was even lower than last time it was checked a few weeks back. Then it was .037 and today .014. The statement he made was "Overall, the thyroid appears symmetrical and heterogeneous in appearance. No distinct nodules or cysts are noted right or left thyroid lobe at this time.
Avatar m tn This troubled my husband and me that she wasn't familiar with some medical terminology as well. My husband says he was completely fooled from the 1st appt, he thought she was going to be great. He went away from the 2nd appt very upset (for me) and angry (he never showed her this). I'm happy my husband was with me because he was able to see this a bit more objectively than I. We'll go back to her when the cortisol tests come back to see what they say.
282234 tn?1193448242 I'm sure all of your questions will be answered. unfortunately not by me. I'm the class dummy when it comes to medical terminology. But, I'm a good listener.
282524 tn?1348492612 I go to the Dr monthly for iron and vitamin B12 shots, and about once or twice a year I have to have a blood transfusion. Other than that, I live a pretty much normal life. It takes a long time for the body to adjust to short gut, but many patiients to and can adapt and live long, healthy lives. In fact, I am now a sophomore in college. If you ever need to talk I am here for you...
Avatar n tn Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders. Finally, you can always seek a second opinion.
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with hep c, weird thing is that for months now my blood work had been showing really high liver enzymes and my doc screened me for hep a,b,and c three times and they ALL came back negative. Finally I was feeling soo sick and in so much pain that they admitted me to the hospital, and did an ultra sound and more blood work, when they got the results they decided to fly me to another hospital in a city two hours away, I was too sick to even be scared.
