Question: Hello,

I 'm 40 yr house wife. I have two kids, youngest one being 1 yrs and 5 months, still drinks my milk.
Lately from last two days...I'm having vomiting with body pains and headaches, bitterness in my mouth.

To provide some details, I hadn't slept properly past 2 days as my kid was unwell.

I do have Thyroid and Diabetes since my pregnancy days. However, last week report shows is Doctor has reduced by dose to Thyronorm 25 Mg once a day and reclide 20 Mg..once a day.

Blood Pressure during Last Saturday visit was : 70/100

TSH - 0.001
Diabetes Fasting 107 and Post Fasting 127.

Vomited a couple of times today.

Please advise?

Regards, XXXXXXX

Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, your symptoms indicate indigestion, increased acid secretion in stomach due to excessive tension. It may also be due to migraine. Your reports are quite satisfactory.

Now, what you have to do is to take pantoprazole group of drug along with an ondansetron for the vomiting and hyperacidity. If you feel any headache or vertigo, you can take paracetamol group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent and prochlorperazine group of drug to prevent any possible attack of migraine.

Take light but nutritious diet. In night sleep is very necessary.

Consult a general physician for clinical examination, ordering any investigation and for dosing of the drugs mentioned above and for further management.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Thanks for your reply doctor.

To add to my symptoms, I do have burning Sensation in my eyes and feel very drowsy with Heavy Head.

Also, I do feel very weak and no strength like.

Is it due to Lack of Sleep and indigestion? Is it anyway related to Diabetes or Thyroid as even my doctor a week ago told ...that my health issue of Giddiness and heavy head is not due to Thyroid or Diabetes.

Is there a specific food or a fluid that you recommend in order to improve my health?

Also, can you specify the exact name of Medicines to be taken and its dosage like how many times a day I should take or is it after meals?

The reason I have asked name of the medicine is that you have mentioned a medicine from a particular group like a Pantoprazole group. If I don't get that medicine, I can get a suitable drug for the same from a drug Store. Hoping that they would give it without prescription from a doctor as I dont have one now.

As you must be aware that certain type of medicines are not available in some states. I reside in Mumbai.

Thanks & Regards, XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

Thank you for writing back.

The symptoms you described now, are most probably due to the lack of sleep.

I think it does not have any relation with thyroid and diabetes. Rather, i think the giddiness, heavy head are due to migraine. You should consult with a neurologist about it.

You can take fresh fruits and protein XXXXXXX diet like eggs, for health improvement.

Here, i cannot give you any prescription. But you should take pantoprazole 40 mg in empty stomach. Ondansetron 4mg should be taken at any time when you feel nauseous. If you feel giddiness, then you can take paracetamol 650 mg and prochlorperazine irrespective of meal. Yes, you can have all the medicines except the prochlorperazine without prescription. For a full prescription you need to visit a general physician.

Hope you have your answers.

Hi my father is taking ((Lithosun SR 400mg (1 Night))) , ((Chlorpromazine 200mg (1Night))) since last 25 years now. In middle he changed the medicines but that didn t suit him and thus he shifted back to this medicine. Now after change of medicines i think these medicines are taking time to settle again. He was having a bit of restlessness and anxiety so he was suggested by doctor to take ((Sizodon plus 1 tablet)) in the morning. Also he is having side effects now like Trembling of Hands for which he visited a Neurologist also and he told to take Betacap TR 40 and Epitril 0.5mg , which are again some heavy medicines. He has not started taking it yet as he has to discuss this with his psychiatrist. Could you tell wat are the side effects of all these and whether the prescription is right. Age : 60 Other Medicines taken for : Diabetes and Thyroid

My daughter is 14 years old, she weighs about 105 pounds and is around 5'2. Over this past week my daughter has been complaining of intense stomach pain that doesn't have any particular side radiation to it. It passed quickly but was recurring. This afternoon, she began to feel nauseated along with the pain. She began throwing up at 3:30 am and
has thrown up pretty much every hour since them. I gave her a 25mg phenergan suppository at 5:30 am after she complained of increased nausea and pain in the right side of her belly button. After the suppository, she made it about 10 minutes and then had to go to the bathroom where she said that poop came out but was not diarrhea. Does this sound like just regular tummy bug or something more?
