Hello,

As per the narrated symptoms, the issue sounds to be in relation with disturbances of the gall bladder, bile drainage system or stomach.

Primary care with diet care, antacids, digestive enzymes and secondary definite care with radiology evaluation via ultrasound with or without CT abdomen & pelvis.

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

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon

My very healthy seven year old son went to school this morning, started complaining of a sudden severe headache and then began to vomit. I brought him home where he hasn t vomited since, no fever but still has a mild headache and slight dizziness. He ate a great breakfast this morning and didn t have any complaints. He seems to be doing better now and is even saying he is hungry. I was concerned about the stomach bug but since he is feeling better so quickly, I m worried there might be something else going on. He never has headaches.

Hi my symptoms started on thursday last week when i felt dizzy and headache. It then turned into a fever with chills. Friday Morning my stomach began hurting and I started a period of diarrhoea which has seen me go to the toilet around 3 times a day on average with loose watery orange coloured deposit. My stomach hurts across the top of the amdomem area and now its shifted down towards the bottom. My most recent visit to the bathroom showed small black stools (around 5-6). My fever has gone but still have a tension headache and mild stomach pain. What do you recommend?
