Brief Answer:
Tongue Tie

Detailed Answer:
Hello. I just read through your question. Tongue is not typically related to reflux issues. We should first concentrate on the reflux. There are several formulas out there that can be tried. Sometimes we have to try more than one before ww find the one that works. Most are just thicker formulas meant to stay in the stomach better instead of refluxing. If these don't work, there are anti-reflux medications (ie: zantac, prevacid, etc...) that can be used. Its always better to try and find the non- medicinal answer though.
The tongue tie may or may not need to be addressed at some point. If the tongue tie interferes with proper feeding, or inhibits appropriate speech development in the months ahead, it will have to be addressed. If not, we can leave it be.

Had hernia surgery on monday, put in mesh, right side only. Today feeling very good, very little pain, mostly from sitting to standing or vice-versa. The question is about the swelling around the scrotum. the right scrotum is swollen, 3 times bigger than left, a little bruising, but no pain. A little swelling on penis also. My surgeon says its normal, but put me on a antibiotic, cephalexin. I'm 51 yrs. old, 180lbs.

Take prevacid, toprol, flomax, daily vitamin. Taking x-strength tylenol for soreness. thank you

I am a 27 year old male that has suffered from some sort of chronic heartburn issues. A little over a year ago I felt like i was having a heart attack; my hands were tingly, was very dizzy, and my heart was pounding. I saw a physician and they performed an EKG on me and everything came back fine but did suggest that it could be a panic attack. I later saw my family physician and they did some blood work and prescribed me prevacid for the heart burn and paxil for the anxiety. As it turns out they discovered some antibodies of the h pylori bacteria so they prescribed me the triple therapy. During this time I have suffered from several symptoms on a daily basis, fatigue, bloated, gas, irregular bowel movements, head tension, thrush, bad breath, stomach discomfort right around the sternum, dizziness, confusion, etc. The symptoms have subsided somewhat but have not been erradicated
