Doctor :   k first the sore throat started then?
Doctor :   oh! k.. did you touch your deep tongue that will be hanging out?uvula? or back of the throat
Doctor :   if you are not able to find the vomiting reflex it is abnormal
Doctor :   but before that try to drink some hot and cold water alternatively and then try the reflex
Doctor :   or else get salt gargle and try for the reflex
Doctor :   are you there?
User :   what would you recommend??????.... There's no way for me to induce myself to vomit.... THAT is what worries me... I really dont even feel the finger or anything there for that matter...
User :   I tried that already
Doctor :   did you try alternative cold and hot water and salt water
User :   I'm coughing really really hard because of stuck flem and not even THAT is causing me any reflex even though I'm really nauseous...
User :   yupo tried it all...

Doctor :   k sure we will help you out
Doctor :   just tell me did you have any injury in the past
User :   like for example¿¿¿
User :   ??
Doctor :   like any fall or accident
User :   well not really, the only accident i had was when i was like 8 y old and i broke my wrist
Doctor :   k
User :   but since i can remember i've never really been able to induce my vomit...
User :   i just thought it was normal
Doctor :   moza press this is a prokinetic
Doctor :   you can try this
Doctor :   once and get back to me
User :   what??
Doctor :   tablet moza press
Doctor :   We need to check whether there is a sysfunction of vomiting centre in brain r the pathway or the receptor muscles
User :   it doesnt even show up on google... the pharmacy will have it?
Doctor :   ya
Doctor :   do you have any other weakness
Doctor :   like weakness in legs or hands
User :   arms
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   can you describe it
Doctor :   do you get headache also?do you have stiff neck?
User :   no headache really or stiff neck...and i can't hold my arms up for long before they start hurting a little...
Doctor :   does any of your parents had stroke or major illness related to brain or other
User :   not really
Doctor :   do you have heart problems
User :   just let me put this clear, i have the flu, i´ve lost my feel nausea and i believe that if i vomit i´ll make me feel better, but the issue is that i cannot induce myself into you´re saying that is abnormal
Doctor :   it is like 1/3 of healthy people will have the absent gag reflex
User :   i dont have heart problems
Doctor :   the reflex used to induce vomiting
User :   so it´s a little bit common?
User :   well, also i cannot feel when someone or something is touching deep in my trhoat
Doctor :   in other 2/3 of the cases the cause is due to the cranial nerves that carry sensation to the brain 9 and 10th nerve
User :   ok i have another it normal to feel like the blood making presure from the forehead to the center of the brain?
Doctor :   if these neves are severed or when the pathway is damaged or interrupted or when the brain has some lesions this absence of reflex occcurs
User :   i can be related to the fact that i´m photosensitive
Doctor :   When do you feel blood making pressure
User :   well...normally i can feel it once a day with a 3 time per day maximun
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   i reccomend you to get an complete neurological physical examination done by an neurologist
User :   and i cannot open my eyes out side when is day...i have to wear sun glases other wise my eyes will hurt
Doctor :   Before that i would like to tell you that at your age the other casues are uncommon
Doctor :   and the only probable cause i can think of is unknown that is it is normal in 1/3
User :   hmmm, so i´ll need to get with an specialist...
Doctor :   Ya you need to get a CT Scan and go to a neurologist for examination of other reflexes
Doctor :   and also muscle power testing
User :   do you think is possible that the blodd pressure and the vomiting reflex and the light senitivity are related with each other?
Doctor :   you can get back to us with the report so that we will help you in further proceeding
User :   hmmm, k...i'll do that then...
Doctor :   Ya photophobia and gag reflex are related to each other in the view of Brain disorder symptoms
User :   i thought so too...but i tried to say that to my previous doctor, but he said i was crazy and paranoid
Doctor :   No my dear nothing of that sort
User :   even thought i dont get sick that easily
Doctor :   u are absolutely normal
User :   thanks :D
Doctor :   Health issues will make a person worried
Doctor :   that soesn't mean he /she is a paranoid

User :   what about the blood presurre i feel in my head?
Doctor :   is there anything else that i can help you with/
User :   yup you're excellent
Doctor :   that is like a rush of blood na
Doctor :   it happens when you stand up from a lying down position or sitting position

Doctor :   i think it is probably normal
Doctor :   where does it hurt?
User :   happens anytime
User :   from my forehead to the center of my head
Doctor :   k
User : in the middle of the brain
