Question: Can you help with a bad toothache?
Answered by Dr. Mahesh Kumar T S 35 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Tooth / gum infection, medication, radiograph

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
As far as the tooth pain is concerned, it can be because of the tooth infection or gum infection. Nothing to be panic, you can consult an oral physician and get it evaluated. mean while you can take a course of antibiotics like amoxicillin and metronidazole combination(if you are not allergic) along with a pain killers like diclofenac(if you are not allergic). You need to get a radiograph like Intra oral periapical radiographs done to confirm the diagnosis. once the diagnosis is confirmed we can treat the tooth accordingly.
I hope I have answered your query. If you have any queries reply me back. Take care.

I have been diagnosed with helicobacter pylorii infection and endoscopy shows erethyma and linear erosions in the duodenum . I also have widespread colonic diverticulitar disease and am recovering from a recent period of inflammation/infection. The medications for the helicobacter p infection like flagyll or the alternative antibiotic (begins with c) have made me nauseated and vomiting in the past. Are there alternatives. can I be prescribed an antinausea drug to take with the meds so I dont feel so ill?

I had a c-section 10 months ago. About three months ago I was having weak, fatigue , constipation, severe bloating , nausea, and urge to urinate. Had cat scan and all blood work came back fine. However they took my gallbladder out just cause they saw stones. I was then sent to my OB and she did exam and ultra sound of uterus and all was fine. At that time I was put on Metronidazole and began to feel normal. Now two months later after my period ended a few days later I had they symptoms appear again. Some days are worse than others.This time I also formed thrush in my mouth, and I have had brown stringy discharge for 8 days. It may help to know that in the last 28 months I have had 2 c sections and a gallbladder removed. I am at a total loss. I have been healthy my entire life. I am also 41 years old. Thank you for your time.

Hi i had a stomach infection with IBS symptoms in May for a couple of weeks, then i went on Probiotics for 4 wks and the symptoms got better. I was fine for the next 4 months back on usual diet , until when i travelled to Egypt , got another mild IBS like symptom. This time i was cautious and immediately after being on conscious diet for a couple of weeks and with Probiotics things are back on track. I consulted a GI specialist last time and he gave me Ciprofloxacin along with Flagyl and advised me to take them only if get extreme diarrhea . I am fine now, soon will be out of Probiotics in a couple of days and continue with normal diet, do you think i need to do the course in case i get any other mild attacks in the next 2 months ? I have also become a little sensitive to certain foods like cheese, mushrooms, very high fiber ?
