I have been excessively burping. I am worried because I do have symptoms of ovarian cancer.

I have been excessively burping for past week. I thought it was because of over eating or eating spicy food or eating meat. But i stopped eating all of them, even rice, but still burping din t stop. I have read many posts regarding the burping, some say it is heartburn , some say it is ovarian cancer and etc. I am worried because i do have symptoms of ovarian cancer. I am not hungry, but still feel like eating. Though i went on pure fruit diet , my burping did not stop. I am not loosing weight. I have been tested for t3,t4, tsh , and antibodies, antibodies turned out to be 15 more than normal (75). Does this have anything to do with burping ? I have been on thyronorm 75MG for past month. Is this a side affect of this medication? I am really confused and worried too! Please help.

your symptoms suggest you are having dyspepsia; it may be due to reflux disorder or gall stones; the latter is more common in the forties. i suggest that you get an ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis and also consult a gen surgeon.

Hello,

Yes, it may be the side effect of the medication. You may try Lycopodium 200, three times a day. This is a Homeopathic medication and does not have any side effects. You may get it from a Homeopathic store. You may take it along with your regular medication.

Thanks

I am a 38 year old female. I ve been vegan for 4 years. I eat a whole foods diet of fruits, vegetables, fresh juices, legumes and some grains. I recently cut out all sugar and have cut down on carbs from pasta and bread. Still, I am 35 pounds overweight and almost all of it is in my lower and now upper abdomen. I m worried that I have some fluid build up in my stomach that is causing such severe bloating and weight problems. My mother had breast cancer at age 37. Should I be checked for ovarian cancer?

I do eat a lot, too much, I do exercise, but not very good workouts as I have two bad knees I do have urgencies to urinate and can t hold it when the feeling comes on I cannot have intercourse as it is painful I don t have bloating I do have lower back pain, but I was diagnosed with bulging disks So my hope is that my symptoms are just normal menopause and aging symptoms. I am so scared to hear the doctor tomorrow

Received pelvic/transvaginal us, results are in however, I ve only been able to view because of employment through the hospital. I am concerned with the findings, i am 38 yo., 3 live births(2 by c-sec), and one ectopic preg.

Ovaries each with blood flow and small follicles?? I dont have follow up till Tuesday? And I am so worried thus could be cancer?

I am 51 years old male. one year back one day I suffered at my work place a moment of giddiness with a little loss of memory like forgetting the day and it s date and computer password etc. After 15 minutes of taking an antacid it came to normal. After that through investigations I was diagnosed with gall stone and spondilytes. I took medicines but not of much help. Now I feel pain in the neck muscles and with a little giddiness. Is it really a mere spondilytes or any thing related to nerve or brain ?
