on diet does not mean fasting
take balanced low calori diet in regular intervals
you are tired and fatigued and feel it while standing and thinking that your knee is week
perhaps you are dieting too much

Well, this all started about 7-8 weeks ago. The first thing that happened was vomiting one Monday evening. It was the worst vomiting I had ever experienced. The next day, I woke up with horrible pain in my upper right flank. I went to my PCP, and she thought that it had to something with my gallbladder, so she sent me for an ultrasound of my gallbladder, right kidney, liver and pancreas. That came back fine, so she sent me to a GI to figure out why I was vomiting(about once a week) and diarrhea(three to four times daily). I had an upper and lower scope performed. I was diagnosed with Barrett s, hiatal hernia and IBS. Also, when they did the ultrasound they did find swollen lymph nodes in my colon(mesenteric adenitis). Meanwhile, this whole time I am experiencing horrible fatigue, heated face, elevated body temperature(99.5-100), pain all over my right side and back. When my GI told me that what he diagnosed me with did not explain the fatigue and low grade fever, I once again had to go back to my PCP. Let me tell you; I have been so emotional since this all started. I am crying for no reason, I feel like I have constant brain fog. So, when my PCP came into the room(she is also an OBGYN), and I begged her to make me feel better, and she pretty much told me there was nothing wrong with me, I started crying. How dare she! Anyway, back to the story. She decided to run some more blood tests and do a urine analysis. So, she said all of the blood tests came back okay. Then, today, I get a call saying there was bacteria growing in my urine, and she wanted to know what my symptoms were so she could just diagnose me with a UTI. Here s my concern: I have had several UTI s in my life, most of which traveled to my kidney. I have had Gonorrhea and Clymadia when I was 21 and naieve, but I took antibiotics and tested negative for it a later date. So, now she just wants to throw antibiotics at me, and I have been sick for almost two months. Could this just have been a UTI this whole time? Also, I do have the pain in my upper right flank as well in the pelvic area. Thank you.

Hello Dr. I have been experiencing some sob, tachacardia & feel like something is sitting on my chest . I don t perceive this as angina, no radiation to neck nor arm . I seem to have no energy, get tired & sob after doing tasks that used to be so easy. I don t seem to be able to lose any weight & have been trying to eat a more healthy diet. Father died of AMI near his 60th birthday. I am guessing I need to do in for cardiac work up & I m afraid the protocol will be a cath & stent placement.

My mother an 80-year-old, weighs around 58 kg, had some numbness in her right lower extremities. Our PCP checked her BP and it was 190/90. My mother does not have any history of hypertension or diabetes, does not have any chest pain or shortness of breath. No fever or chills. She is very active and involve in all daily routine activities normally. Our PCP suggested to take amlodipine besylate 5 mg once daily. After she took her first dose of 5 mg, she feels little fatigue. Just what I want to know is, whether mild lower-extremity numbness is due to high systolic 190 though diastolic reading is 90. Is it safe to continue with calcium channel blocker or should go to some other medication. What are the risk factors? I will take her to my PCP in 3-4 days and get her BP checked. My mother is purely vegetarian, drinks 2-3 coffee per day, otherwise, normal with vitals and physical. Cataract operation two years back with lens. She does not take any other medications. Please suggest whether she should continue with this medication.

I was diagnosed with a mild to moderate leaky mitral valve in 2009. I was told I have nothing to worry about and i was sent on my way. However i have always felt the symptoms, Fatigue, shortness of breath, pressure in chest, numbing on my left side to name a few. However when they take my blood pressure its always normal or a little low and when they listen to my heart they say they don't hear anything. I am scared because these symptoms have not gone away and I have had every other test done. Do you think that the doctors need to hear what I am telling them and do more test? I have had a battery of testing done in 2009, that is when the found the leaky valve.
