Question: Hi, I am a 49 year old woman and I've been having nausea, off and on vomiting for 2 1/2 months now. My primary care doctor thinks it's too much acid in my stomach so I was asked to take omeprazole. I've been taking this for 5 days now but it doesn't seem to be helping. I also have tingling in the middle of my back and slight discomfort on my right side. I can't function like this.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Right abdominal discomfort, tingling in the back and nausea makes gallstones very possible. Chills can be the symptom of some inflammation.
In my opinion you definitelly need some diagnostic. Abdominal ultrasound, blood work, urine analysis, liver tests, pancreas tests should be done. If there will be gallstones detected, laparoscopic surgery should be considered.
If nothing will be found in mentioned tests, gastroscopy should be next.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

I also forgot to mention that I have a feeling of numbness around my jaw and a slight feeling of dizziness here and there. Not sure if I should wait to see a doctor or go to Urgent Care today.

I think that you should not wait. Dizziness seems to be caused by dehydration. Please go to ER and do not risk.

I had a hysterectomy (laparoscopic) 13 days ago. I was instructed to take milk of magnesia for constipation and straining after surgery. I felt great after surgery and was up and about after no time. 9 days post-op felt very constipated, so I took 2 T. of Milk of Magnesia. Since then, I have not been able to keep anything in my stomach. The diarrhea was ridiculous on Friday evening through Saturday afternoon, then I ate some soup on Saturday night, and I had to get up 4 times in the night with diarrhea. Is this a stomach bug or something normal from the surgery?
