Hi,

It seems to be indigestion and may not be anything dangerous. It is not even celiac disease. The only part of worry is the infection, which needs to be ruled out. This condition can be managed on a tentative basis. I would advise for a diet change. Try to follow a very light type of diet. Avoid taking fried food, spicy food and junk food. Consume clean drinking water, and stop worrying.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Husain, General & Family Physician

I was recently diagnosed with goiter. 3 tiny nodules were found in my thyroid (ultrasound). Im still gonna undergo a nuclear medicine (FT4, TSH IRMA). Im bothered with my palpitations and especially the rapid weight loss. Will these symptoms stop when i ll start my meds? And is the meds for life or for a certain duration?

Last night I experienced heart palpitations for what seemed like hours. I am anemic (thalassemia trait), diabetic have a history of panic attacks. I thought the issue was my blood glucose so I ate. But every time I laid down the palpitations began again. I am on my menstrual cycle and thought maybe my hormones are somehow involved. I took an Aleve for cramps and the situation seemed to worsen. It took almost two hours for the pain from my cramps to subside and I experienced palpitations the whole time. I have been experiencing very bad gas and stomach upset which I think is related to metformin (2000mg) a day. I was on 500 mg but the dose was increased hoping it would aid weight loss. However, since the increase my panic attacks are more frequent and severe and I am worried if this could be straining my heart. But could there be something wrong with my heart. I am obese, 5 5, 261 pounds. 33 years old. I am starting to become winded from exercise and simply activities. What should I do the panic episodes seem to occur most frequently at night and I usually awakened from my sleep.

I am a 45 year old white female, standing 5 4 and weigh 128 lbs. I was diagnosed and treated for graves disease six years ago and no longer take medication for this. The past 3 weeks I have been experiencing heart palpitations and a feeling of not being able to get a good breath. I had my thyroid levels checked and they came back at the low end of normal. I have had routine blood work, d diamer, chest x-ray, ekg all came back normal. I have recently worn a holter monitor which came back showing PVC s. The Dr prescribed Metoprolol 1/2 tab at night and this isn t really helping with either the palpitations or the breathing and now I am feeling light headed. I am scheduled for an echo stress test tomorrow but I am wandering where this may be going or if you have any other thoughts as to what can be going on. I have always been healthy and have only missed maybe 2 days work in the past 20 years for any type of illness.

My daughter has been diagnosed with Tropical Sprue. She recently told us she was Gay - surprising as she is and identical twin DNA 99.99996 identical.and twin is happilly married. I just read that Tropical Sprue can interfere with testosterone. Could it interfere with oestrogen? Could this disease have an influence on her sexuality? Or is it totally unrelated?

Hi, I have coeliac disease and have been adhering to a gluten free diet for about a year now since I was diagnosed. I ve always had a problem with fatigue and had attributed it to the coeliac disease; however, now that I m on a gluten free diet I had thought that might alleviate it - it hasn t. I can sleep anywhere from 5 to 15 hours a night and always have the same lethargy, despite trying different sleeping patterns, drowning myself in coffee, having B12 injections , and doing awake things like getting out and about. Is there anything you could recommend to make me less sleepy all the time?

My son aged 15 was I believe misdiagnosed with ulceraive colitis in February. His dioreahha episode began after sitting in a unventilated room for long hours next to a window with black mould and putting on the airconditioning.The reason i disagree with this diagnosis is that after a while in hospital recieving blood transplant and medication he did not recover and had another episode in July when again he used airconditioning to cool down, He then went to a specialist in Ankara Turkey where they discovered his medication was causing problems with his pancreas and kidneys and immediatly stopped it. there he did not adhere to any kind of diet he just began to eat and walk as much as his strength would allow. After 10 days hte diarehha disappeared and the doctor gave him Iron supplements to help his anemia . A few weeks ago the weather turned cold. Again he used the airconditioning. Again he began to get dioreahha began geting slight pains in his stomach and going to the lavatory about once every hour and was running a slight temperature . He became afraid to eat has got a few red patched on his legs maybe due to dehydration and malnutrition . He is currently in hospital where a specialist who helped a friend in a similar condition has given him antibiotics along with vitamins for a stomach infection. So could my son be a victim of black mould? it looks that way to me
