Posted on Tue, 11 Apr 2017 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: Hello, I am a 43 yo female and nurse practitioner. I am normal weight 140 lbs 5 ft 5 in exercise and eat healthy but have constant heartburn. I also itch all over at times. Maybe two separate things. I have really been trying to improve my gut health with probiotics and drinking kombucha regularly. Not sure if that has any thing to do with it. Lately, I have also noted petechia on my abdomen and sometimes neck and chest. I have atributed it to yoga.

Hi,

Thanks for your post on HealthcareMagic,

I do understand your pain and discomfort

As per your clinical history is concerned please provide me some more details:

1) Do you feel early fullness during a meal without eating much ?

2) Do you have any history of bloating and nausea ?

3) Do you have any pain in your right shoulder ?

4) Have you recently checked your stool examination [RE/ME], if done, please upload the report along with image of skin red spots. You can simply upload/attach them at the reports section of this web-page.

Awaiting....

Thanks

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your follow up question on HCM

As per your answer I checked every aspect clearly and found that your problem has no relation with what you are taking right now and it also has no relation with major pathological causes. So do a full blood count with differential and take medications as per findings.

[If you can provide the image it will be much better]

Hope that helps
