Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

Let me know the following details:
Do you have acidic belching/ abdominal heaviness/ excessive flatulence?
Do you yellow discoloration of sclera/ urine?
Why was Ilaprazole prescribed?
Ilaprazole is a newer proton pump inhibitor (PPI), is associated with the same side effects of other PPI.
As such no specific side effects of Ilaprazole have been defined.
Nausea and loss of appetite may be due to side effects of ilaprazole.
As you have past history of GERD, there may be chances of persistence of same disease.
Liver disease may also cause the same symptoms.

You should consult with your treating doctor and let him know the above mentioned symptoms.
You should also go for liver function test, endoscopy and ultrasound imaging.
You should take appetizer along with prokinetics (medicine which improve intestinal motility) for relief of your symptoms.

Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Dear Doctor, I last had a bone density scan a year ago which showed Osteopenia in my spine although hips were normal. I have an 8 history of eating disorders (mostly bulimia and only slightly underweight although irregular periods, until the past 19 months when things became more anorexic and BMI has been between 12.5-15 with no menstruation). My current concern is that following a fall a month ago I have pain in my coccyx which shows no sign of improving and I worry it may have 'crumbled' and that this is the beginning of me losing height. Is this likely? Many thanks for your help.

I like to eat a lot of food, but I never really get the time to anymore. My weight is also considered "anorexic" based on my BMI, but I have never been anorexic. And when I eat, even eat a lot, nothing happens. I don't gain any weight. So what I'm worried about is this actually turning into anorexia. What do I do?

I am anorexic and abuse laxatives. Lately I have been waking up in the middle of the night, and my heart is racing, I'm sweating and I'm shaking. I feel faint and can barely see. Because I am restricting food so severely, my first instinct is to eat something. I eat and eventually fall asleep, then wake up feeling nauseas and vomitting. What could be causing this? What can I do to reverse this.

Doctor, My name is Kristin Crofford and I am conducting a research paper for my English 102 class. An interview is required for a final draft in my research paper. My topic is based on the effects photoshopped images have on consumers. If you have time to answer a few questions it would be greatly appreciated! Are any of your patients males suffering from disorders such as Anorexia nervosa, Bulimia nervosa, etc.? Are any of your patients models struggling for approval from companies demanding a certain image? Have any of your patients specifically mentioned any magazine images, clothing catalogues, models in the fashion industry, that have contributed to their idea of what their body should look like? Do you believe photoshop is an issue in today s society that needs to be dealt with, and why? Any examples that contribute to your decision would be helpful, and understandably anonymous. Do you believe there has been an increasing rate of patients struggling from eating disorders, or self-image inferiority in the past few years? Thank you for your time, I hope to hear back from you soon!
