What causes stomach ache when suffering from pulmoary arterial hypertension? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
My partner suffering with PAH
is suffering from stomach ache since last night
Pulmoary Arterial Hypertension?
its not subsiding and the urge to eat or drink anything has also gone
has he vomited?
What medications is he on?
Bosentas and pulmo pres doctor
No fever doctor
Feverish feeling is there though docotr
and body ache
Ok, it sounds like a viral fever
but he is going to need to be tested
you will need to take him to the ER for blood tests and IV fluids to rehydrate him
What about the pain doctor?
at the same time, give him tablet PAN 40mg to prevent the dolo or other medications from making his stomach worse
Not in the position to currently take to the ER doctor
well, see thats the safest thing to do
It would allow for him to get rehydrated and tested for an infection
but if you can't you can't
try and make sure he drinks plenty of fluid
Any immediate steps dooctor
make sure he keeps taking his regular meds
to reduce pain
and to give some energy
and give him dolo for the pain and PAN for the stomach
ORS solution is very useful for these things, even stuff like gatorade will help
Should we try gatorade doctor?
Yhea, that will be fine
let him sip it through the night
If he starts getting short of breath then i don't care what position you guys are in, you need to take him to the hospital
can take that up to 4 times a day
Will do that doctor
anything that can be eaten doctor?
Try and stick to soft foods, there is no real restriction as such
But please try and get him to the doc as soon as you can. I want him to get a CBC to check for an infection
Do you have any more queries?
Thats it for now doctor
will follow these steps doctor
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
Thank you doctor
