What does burning sensation in abdomen and tiredness indicate ?

Burning sensation in my abdomen and more tired than normal. Should I be concerned and go to the doctor? I am a 28 year old female. Never been preganant but trying to concieve. Have food intolerences to dairy and eggs and try to keep them out of my diet. For the past 2-3 days I have been abnormally tired and my abdomen has felt full, bloated, and has kind of a burning sensation. i have my fair share of stomach fullness, bloating , and pain when I was still eating a lot of dairy..but since watching my diary intake, it hasn t been that way for awhile. I have not lost my appetite, have not vomited, and have not had a fever that I know of. I did have a mild sore throat as well but it seems to be quite better today. Is this something I should be worried about and how long should I wait to see if it passes or go to the doctor? Thanks for your time.

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Firstly there could be a chance you had some diary product by mistake.Secondly all these symptoms suit with with Gastroesophageal reflux.You could be having dyspepsia.I advise you to take timed food avoiding spicy items.take lots of water .You can take an antacid like Pantoprazole or Ranitidine to reduce the symptoms.
If you have missed your period there could be chances of pregnancy and these symptoms associated.
It is always advisable to visit your Doctor and get these drugs prescribed after examination.

Take care.

Hello, I am a 22 year-old male (weight 73kg, height 167cms). I ve been feeling quite tired for the last few months and only a couple of days ago and on three occasions I ve felt this clammy cold sensation, anxiety and I started sweating slightly, especially on the arms and face; it was very scary because for a moment I really thought I was going to pass out or something. I also felt a bit nauseous. I ve also had this abdominal pain for some months now: it starts a couple of hours after I ve eaten, and the more hours pass, the worse it gets; it s almost always right below my breastbone but sometimes I also feel it in my lower abdomen. I already took omeprazol, milk of magnesia and antihelmintics for that last symptom but didn t get any better. What is wrong with me? I m really scared. Thank you.

Hello. I am inquiring for a friend. He is 67 and became officially diabetic in 2008 (began taking Metformin). In 2011, he had a CABG (4 coronary arteries blocked 60/70/80 & 90%), plus an 80% left carotid artery (surgery in Feb 2012 endarterectomy). March 2012, non-medicated stent placed in LAD (the 90% artery went to 99%, and scar tissue in one of the new bypasses was opened with balloon angioplasty). June 2012 total knee replacement (3rd revision since orig. in 1996). Spring 2013, complaining of chest pain, fatigue and tiredness in legs during cardiac rehab exercises (Nov 2012-Feb 2013). June 2013 more stents in LAD and other coronary arteries (2-3?). Follow-up to this surgery, still having pain in legs. Saw a vascular surgeon. Aug 30 2013 stent in abdominal aorta 80% on left, 56% on right blocked (artery to legs/kidneys, etc). Mid August 2013 started complaining about pain in shoulders, upper arms, forearm, wrist, predominantly left side. Did not seem to be heart-related since stents were added in June 2013. Currently trying to determine cause of pain. Diagnosed with carpal tunnel in both wrists in 2006, but only had surgery on the right arm. Pain in the left shoulders and arm is the worst at night, waking him up, during the day has trouble raising arms above his head without pain in shoulder joints. Pain is described as stiffness, soreness, cannot put weight on wrists to get out of chair, numbness, no burning sensations, some tingling. Most severe during the night when trying to sleep. Was also diagnosed with PMR (polymyalgia rheumatica) in Sept. 2006 and was treated with prednisone. Symptoms were relieved within one year. In the last 4-5 weeks, he has had the following tests: CT scan of abdomen (for the aorta to legs) (Mid Aug), balloon angioplasty with dye to place stent in abdominal aorta (Aug 30), X-ray of left arm/wrist, EMG on left hand (Aug 28), MRI of left hand w and w/o contrast (Sep 11)--these tests confirmed CTS of left wrist, and MRI revealed an unidentified (small) mass on palm side of left hand between ring and little finger (which he has had since at least 2011, but causes him no pain). He has had a CRP test, but I do not know the results. How high do the numbers have to be to confirm PMR? My specific questions: 1. Should he have one of his doctors (cardiologist, endocrinologist, rheumatologist or neurologist) perform an ESR test ? Would it be that helpful since the CRP has been done? 2. How can he determine whether the pain is muscular inflammation, diabetic nerve damage/ CTS nerve stenosis, or blood vessel blockages/ inflamation in the shoulder, arm or wrist? 3. What is the saturation point for the dye tests? 4. What about peripheral neuropathy? He is diabetic. How soon can nerve damage occur in diabetics? (# of years before it occurs) What is diabetic nerve pain like? Is is sharp, numb, tingly, dull and throbbing, achey, what? 5. How can I help him understand that it is the highs and lows that cause damage on a cellular level-that it is critical to manage the highs and lows-to try to keep the glucose level in the blood as constant as possible, when his diabetic doctor wants him to keep a log (doesn t), take the blood sugar readings more than just am and pm (sometimes skips taking a blood sugar reading AT ALL), eat healthy foods, etc., and he is doing just barely the bare minimum, thinking he is doing a lot and all of it the right things- (It s never over 120 in the am or pm-HOW ABOUT DURING THE DAY WHEN YOU NEVER CHECK IT?!!!) 6. The hand surgeon wants to correct the CTS, but can t because my friend is taking CRESTOR or PLAVIX (not sure which, and neither is he), and will not operate on him without the cardiologist releasing him from the blood thinners, and he just had the new stents put in in June, so he says he can t operate on the CTS until June 2014. So, if the CTS is causing the pain in the left arm, he can t get that fixed because of the blood thinner problem. The cardiologist says that he is so high risk of a heart attack or stroke if he were to take him off of them, that he is reluctant to do so, but he did June 2013 so that my friend could have an infected molar pulled by a dental surgeon. My friend tends to rely on the medications to manage his conditions, and does not incorporate the 30 minutes, 3 x a day exercise (other than the work he does at his job, which is physical) that we re supposed to do every week, or eat balanced, healthy meals to help reduce the plaques in his heart and arteries, or try to change his high-stress lifestyle. He is 3 weeks out from the abdominal aorta stent tomorrow 09/20, so has been feeling better on the leg tiredness. 7. We don t feel that the arm and shoulder pain is heart-related. How do we narrow it down? What other tests might be effective in finding out? What about a Nerve Conduction velocity (NCV) test? Could he have a partial blood clot in the brachial artery? Getting desperate for answers at this point. He has had the arm pain for at least 6-8 weeks. Also very concerned about contrast media. He has had a lot of dye in his system within the last 4 weeks, and is concerned about his kidneys (he had kidney stones in 2009/2010). How many times can you inject that medium safely? I know it builds up in the kidneys. I m sorry for the length of this query, but I cannot ask his doctors since I am not family and do not have all the specifics of where stents are located, or prescription drugs being taken, etc., and because of the HIPPA regs. My friend is frustrated, and tired of talking to doctors, and being questioned, but I don t want him to give up trying to get back to a more normal life, where a discussion of his health isn t part of our every day conversations. Thank you for listening. What should he do next? He is seeing his diabetic doctor tomorrow morning. He wants to take steroids to see if they will relieve the arm pain ( a possible indicator of PMR if they relieve the pain), but the hand surgeon can t prescribe them without the cardiologist and the diabetic doctor approving them. So, that s where we are. Please help me SAVE HIS LIFE. Getting information for him is the only way I can contribute--whether he chooses to read or listen to that information is up to him. Once again, THANK YOU.

What do my symptoms indicate? --I am 18 years old. I am frequently tired (though admittedly do not go to bed very early), I ve had a couple of viruses over the past two months: the first causing headaches and sinus pain, and the second, tonsillitis-like symptoms that went away after about a week. Today my right arm has been aching a lot for no apparent reason, and for the past month or so, I ve been spitting blood when I brush my teeth! I am quite concerned after googling my symptoms and leukaemia coming up in the search results!

Hi, I've been suffering with extreme stomach and abdominal pain for over a year now, I had a camera down my throat and was told I had gastritis which I started pantoprezole 40mg twice daily and ranitidine 300mg before bed. Over a year later I'm still getting these pains from my my stomach and all down my abdomen (upon waking my whole abdomen feels bruised like pain similar to being winded) along with constipation, nausea and general feeling of being unwell. Any help appreciated as this has lead to me now having anxiety :/ I've also had a ultrasound to rule out gallstones

I traveled internationally two days back and the same night had a bout of vomiting (with lot of nausea and sweating) and loose motions. It was a one off event and no temperature. The nausea persisted in the morning. Doctor prescribed Ciprolaxacin (500 mg OD) plus dompeirdon and Zantac. This seems to give me palpitations (tachycardia). The doctor has now stopped Cipro and Zantac and gone for Cefixime. I looked up the net for adverse reactions of Cefixime and do not like them. I still have some nausea and dizziness. Also I have a history of very sensitive stomach (IBS). What to do?

My wife is diabetic and has chronic gastritis. She has this acute pain on the upper abdomen and the pain can only be relieved by pathidine. The doctors have prescribed Hyoscine,omeprazole,amoxycilline,ranitidine and promethazine but nothing seems to help as the pain keeps on coming back. Endoscopy was done and it came out negative, no inflammation of the stomach lining, no ulcer. Please help as we have spent a lot of money on medical bills and nothing seems to improve.
