I am 68 years old, fit and healthy although can not put on weight and have lost about 3 kg over last 2 months. Yesterday I had a short approx 12 hour session as follows: Woke up feeling well althogh missed my usual early morning bowel movement. Then 1 hour after usual breakfast of oats and yoghurt, I started to feel vague stomach pain (or from region roughly under and around the lower part of my sternum), then slowly a slight nausea which after ~1 hour gave way to feeling of impending diahorrea which soon passed without incident. I ate a small lunch and did not have my usual good appetite. Then I started to feel flu like muscle and joint pains, also headache and some chest pain and then cold shivers. The cold shivers got very strong over the next 6 hours or so - stronger than I ever recall before and I was actually shaking. After a somewhat relieving hot bath I went to bed at 6pm and felt very hot but not unpleasant and not sweaty. I felt a bit better at about 8pm and had a spicy soup for dinner, took an antacid (qikeze) before sleeping reasonably well all night and woke up with the hot fever abated and only a slight headache, had breakfast and felt back to normal by about lunch time. Over the last few weeks and continuing now I have had indigestion/burning much more than usual.

last night i fell down about 10 carpeted stairs. I landed on my bottom, but when i tried to stand up i felt sick to my stomach and dizzy. I remember sitting back down, but then i woke up on the floor. I think i was out for only a few seconds. today, my butt obviously hurts, but i also have a headache and my neck hurts. Is this whiplash? My feet went fully out from under me and i briefly saw them in the air

Hi - I have a strong but dull pain at the bottom of my breast bone. The pain is greater after I eat. It causes a lot of burps, though not a lot of intestinal gas. I am a 70 year old female, type 2 diabetes controlled with insulin, my last A1C was 6.2. I also have Multiple Myeloma (diagnosed in late 2012) and am on Darzalex, Velcade and dexamethasone. Thanks for your help.
