indigestion for a month islong time and you should consult physician and get check up and investigations to find out the cause
upper gi endoscopyand usg for gall bladder function is needed primarily
for the time being take regular nonspicy meals,some enzyme like digiplex t after meals
bowel should be regular

My throat has been hurting for the past couple of days, and I went to the doctors because I thought I had strep throat but they tested a culture which said I didn t. I don t know what it could be because I have white patches on my left tonsil and it is all red and swollen. I also have bumps on the back (near my throat) of my tongue, and some on the left side near the back as well. The left side of my whole mouth has been hurting the most, and everything has just seemed to be swollen and irritated. It hurts to swallow almost everything and it prevents me from going outside and doing anything. I would really like to know what it is.

I am a 29 year old female, 5 9, 142lbs. I had spinal fusion surgery december 2010 with instrumentation from T4 to L4. I have had increasing back pain since late July which has gotten progressively worse in August. For the past 3-4 weeks I had noticed in an increase in needing to urinate but I just thought I was drinking more. I also was having stomach pain/cramping and a lot of back pain but I attributed the stomach pain to IBS and the back pain to just worse back pain since I ve had surgery. Since this past week my back is swollen in spots. Friday night pain got worse, I had chills and muscle spasms. Then by Monday my entire spine felt like it was on fire with a lot of pain and stiffness particulary in my mid-upper back and neck. I went to see my general pracitioner Monday this week who found bacteria, white blood cells, nitrites and blood in my urine. She prescribed sulfameth trimethoprim to take with aleve. I have been on this since Monday. The burning sensation along my spine has decreased however there is alot of pressure in my back...just feels huge. I am having more pain in the mid-lower left side and there is swelling there and am very fatigued. I may have had a slight fever if any but my regular body temps always 96-97. Yesterday I developed more abdominal pain that wasn t there before and I am still having muscle spasms. My question is whether or not I need to seek additional medical treatment or if this is a normal response to antibiotic treatment and just wait it out . I have called my surgeons office and dr office but still haven t been called back and I don t know what to do. I am fearing a kidney infection and of course I m very concerned about any infection settling in my hardware along my spine. How do they check for a kidney and or spinal infection? Can you please recommend a course of action. I really don t want to go to an ER because I always feel like that s for trauma stuff but I don t know what other options I have at the moment. Please give me some guidance. Thank you.

I have large whitle bumps on the back of my tongue that feels like I burnt it. I didn t drink anything too hot either to cause the burning feeling.. My throat is sore. I do have ear pain which I have very often, way before I discovered the white bumps on my tongue. I m concerned that they may lead down further into my throat since they are in the back of my tongue. Could it be cancer?

I am female age 45...in perimenopause-recently had a period after two and half months. Daily experience of feeling bloated and look like I m pregnant(I am not), bowel changes include urgent need to move bowels several times during the day yet urgency doesn t match quantity-stools are soft to loose, often feel indigestion, bloat, occasional heartburn. My diet is relatively healthy, exercise 1-3 X s wk. Can t seem to beat the bloated, gassy feelings I experience daily. Have had gastritis in the past but didn t last this long, but I m not ruling it out either. Concerned symptoms may be a gastritis, food allergy/sensitivity, or perhaps a diverticulosis. Suzane

hello, Last night my husband had an episode that included pain and bloating in his chest, below the breasts, indigestion, pain in his left shoulder and jaw, and cold sweats. I was not with him and didn t find out till now. He had eaten a small salad and bowl of soup and had 1 alcoholic drink. This is the second or third time, but never this severe and never got jaw pain or sweating. He didn t seek medical attention, went home and eventually felt better. He was active and fine today. Should we seek medical attention tonight at a hospital or call for an appointment tomorrow with a cardiologist? We live in the New Orleans area and those appointments can take a few weeks to get. I realize that some of these symptoms could also be gastric. What do you think? Thanks Julie
