Question: I have been having painful headaches on the right side of my head that leave with an ear discomfort. Tonight I felt a palpitation in my head on the opposite side. No nausea, or any other symptoms. The palpitations lasted a few seconds. Also I just started taking naproxen for them.


Also I had a urine culture that indicated a strain of strep but have been on an antibiotic for five days and just finished it.

Brief Answer:
symptoms can all be due to the same bacteria that caused urine infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX welcome to Health care magic,

the headache, pain in ears, 'palpitations' in head can all be due to the same infection that also caused your urine infection.

I will advise you to take simple paracetamol/Tylenol with Omeprazole twice a day(even without nausea or apparent stomach symptoms there could be acidity due to the antibiotic course).

You can take Naproxen single dose, only if the headache is very severe and not responding to Tylenol.
I think you will settle down in a couple of days.
You can revert back.
Regards

Hello, beginning 4 days ago I began to have hiccups, and they are still with me today. Im unable to sleep. Then theres the acid reflux and burning pain when I swallow food as im swallowing corrosive battery acid. Was some nausea earlier. Are these two related? And what should be done firstly to address the hiccups and sleep deprivation. I am taking prilosec and mylanta and little food. Thank so much and have a great day.

yes, I had a colonoscopy followed up by a barium and was diagnosed with dirvirtulosis . I believe this is a pouch in the colon. At present I have had diahrea for 5 days and my family doctor said it was dirvirticulosis. However I have not had any pain or vomiting. I have reflux to which I take Losec , which I know can cause some diahrea. He put me on antibiotics . what should my next step be?. I watch my diet and in the past have had regular bms sometimes 3 a day
