Question: I fell down and landed hard but not on my head. I landed so hard that my foot was skinned up in my shoe. I have since had nausea. What could cause this? Also with the nausea comes extreme tiredness. Then I will feel better for a bit. I have also lost my appetite.

Brief Answer:
Need detailed history

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic .

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

In case of head injury nausea wouldn't be there, so no need to worry about head injury.

Your injury and nausea could be incidental,not related.

I need few more details to help you a better way.
Since how many days you are having nausea?
Is there any history of sweating ?
is your symptoms associated with activity?
Any history of tightness in chest ?
What over the counter medication did you use?

With your symptoms first I would like to rule out cardiac problem with ECG and cardiac enzyme test, which do presents with tiredness and nausea.
Other possibilitie will be gastric problem.

Get back to me with above asked details.

Wish you a good health

I have had the nausea for about 4 days. I have also felt a little dizzy a few times but not severe. Pepto-bismol is what I have tried for my stomach. No tightness in chest and no sweating. I also take glyburide and metformin.

Brief Answer:
Gastric problem

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for follow up query.

Your symptoms are in more favour of gastric problem, which do responds well for acid reducing medications like pantoprazole 40 mg to be taken 30 min before breakfast for 5 days. Mean while better to get a ECG done

my husband was prescribed invokana on December 22, along with metformin, januvia, glyburide, and levemir for control of diabetes, along with xarelto, atnenolol, pravastatin, and synthroid. He just never seemed right after that. He experienced many very low blood sugar episodes, had trouble sleeping and was very irritable. He did not seem depressed, indeed he had many short and long term plans. However, he took his life on March 11 and wrote a note saying we all would be better off without him (unthinkable). All his doctors and family were completely shocked. Have there been any links with suicide and invokana?

i have gestational diabetes. I m taking glyburide and i noticed that ever since I ve been getting this rash that won t go away. At first they looked papule like. My dermatologist prescribed me some sarna cream and now i am getting a blotchy rash with irregular borders all over both of my arms spreading now to my upper thighs. Is this a pregnancy related rash that will go away after I deliver or is this due to the glyburide? i read that one of glyburides side effects is hive like rashes. Help....i ve never had a rash this itchy before and it is impossible to get a good night sleep. What do you recommend? I have one more week before I deliver. Thanks
