Question: Hi, this morning I started taking a diet pill. About am hour later I had diarrhea,which I expected, however shortly after I began vomiting. I started getting chest pains, and my arm went numb. I sat and relaxed a few hours later felt better. I took a look at the pills and realized i took too many. I didn't drink any caffeine and have only had water. It is now 6 hours later. My arm is still tingly and fingers and tongue feel off, I also feel like I have acid reflux. I am wondering if this is residual? Thank you for your time.

Brief Answer:
Symptoms will gradually subside

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am.

I can certainly understand your concern

I have worked through your attached query in detail

These are residual side effects of the pills which you took.

The symptoms will gradually improve over hours.

Addition of antireflex medications like Pantoprazole will help.
