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.

General Surgeon 's  Response
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 frequently need to wee, have sharp pains regularly in my upper abdomen, and have had a headache for months. I have had two separate doses of antibiotics for a sinus infection but they haven t worked. I have had a blood test for diabetes and helicobacter bacteria and both tests were clear. Waiting to get an appointment for an ultrasound. I am 53 and still have the odd period. I am worried that I have ovarian cancer. Would there be other symptoms apart from the two I have mentioned?

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?

Hello. My husband is in post pancreatitis stage and is home leading a normal life . The cause of this illness remains a mystery to the doctors that attended to him as he does not drink alcohol and gall stones were also ruled out. My question is, what kind of foods shld he be eating? I don t want to know about diets that help lose your belly, I want to know about nutrition. What my husband does is if he gets an ache and upset tummy, he reviews what he ate over the last few meals and assumes a certain food caused and just says he wont eat it again, and this goes on til the next tummy ache. He does still take creon and he is not a diabetic at this stage based on tests that have been done. We are based in Cairns Aussie. Any advice or education on these issues wld be most appreciated.

My 98 year old mother was diagnosed with mitral valve regurgitation. She was placed on lasix and after 4 weeks became dehydrated as evidenced by an unexplained rash and itchiness on scalp and chest. Went to a dermatologist and the physician did not find any bug source, being that my mother resides in a nursing home. My mother s BUN rate was 90 but after being hospitalized for the past 2 days and hydrated with an IV is lowering now to 50. Her creatine level is normal as well as her glucose leves. Blood pressure is normal -146/72. They discovered a UTI for which the doctors are administering rocephin until they specify the exact bacterium. Results should be back today. She is on Celexa for mood elevation - which is questionable as to its efficacy (40mg daily for the past 2 years). A catscan yesterday revealed an enlarged liver which is pressing on the pancreas. They want to do an ercp scope to rule out gall stones - which she has no history of - what other tests should we run.

For the past week and a half now I ve been experiencing a growing level of nausea. Shortly after eating it is the worst, but then the nausea generally subsides about 30 minutes to an hour after. It doesn t matter what food type, it s anything I eat. At first when I started having this problem I figured I was getting sick. But I have no other symptoms. No sore throat, coughing, sneezing, or anything like that. I have acid reflux disease, but keep it under control with medication. I ve never had this problem before, and don t understand what it could be. It s really annoying because I have to force myself to eat now, and I ve lost my appetite for almost all foods because I know how I ll feel after eating. It s really stressing me out, and I know I would have to go to a doctor to get a 100% answer, but I can t afford it. I don t eat a lot of junk food, and have actually started eating a lot healthier because I figured it would combat the problem, but it s not doing much. I ve been drinking a lot of fluids also to try and help. When I do drink fluids I don t get nauseas, only when I eat solid food. A couple of months ago I had an ultra sound for gall stones for a completely unrelated problem but there weren t any. Any idea what this might be?
