hi, there,I think there is not reason to worry.As your doctor after examination says that it is indigestion,it is fine.There could be some additional complaints like heaviness after food,burning sensation in food pipe,vomiting sensation after heavy foods etc.which might have help your doctor to arrive at conclusion.Please do not worry and keep contact with your doctor.

I m having some pain in the middle of my chest area, that feels like it might be indigestion, however, it s been happening for months, and gradually getting worse. I m taking ameprosole, to ward off any indigestion, and I still get the dull pain. Any idea what that might be.

How do you know when chest pain (squeezing pain) is not indigestion? I m 64 year old female, not overweight, active and otherwise healthy. I ve asked my primary about this, but she says it s probably nothing. There s heart disease in the family - would like to know if there are some tests I could ask for, or if there are specific symptoms I should know to tell the difference.

My daughter is nine years old. She complains that her heart hurts or that it flutters or feels weird. Sometimes this is accompanied with vomiting and the shakes. Sometimes she says she feels like she can’t breathe right. She sweats a lot in her sleep or if she is active always seems to be a lot more than other kids. She is constantly thirsty. She has been to see a gastro, pulmonologist, and a cardiologist. She has been checked for asthma and was fine; they put her on an inhaler for when she is active. She had an EEG which was normal. She may have a mild reflux but not severe. She was also checked for Diabetes and came back negative. I feel like we are missing something help.

I have a 10 year old son that is very athletic, but is having terrible problems with constipation. After a rigorous ordeal with regards to his constipation, he lost 4-5 lbs of stool. Our pediatrician recommended Miralax BID, which causes him to have small stools, but he feels his stomach is fat or bloated and he just doesn t feel good. No nausea or vomiting. We have a friend that deals in homeopathic, kinesiology medicine and he thinks he has an overgrowth of yeast. He has a crack in his lower lip that has been very difficult to heal. We are getting very frustrated.

Hello. I have 9 yr old with no chronic/significant medical problems. He was nauseous earlier this evening. He began vomiting about 2 hours ago. He has vomited 3 times, approx. 1L. Each time, the emesis smells & looks like diarrhea; very thin, watery & brown. I m an RN & in my 11 yrs of experience I have NEVER seen or smelled such foul vomit. He is not complaining of abd pain (some superpubic tenderness), intermittent nausea. Afebrile. No diarrhea. Regular BM this morning. I ve given him 5mg zofran liquid, however, he s still vomiting. Any suggestions? (Im using my phone to type this, please give me some time to reply. Thanks)
