My son (7.5 years) complains about vomitting feeling and thereafter prefers to sleep for couple of hours. Note, he does not vomit though. Our concern is vomitting sensation and him going to sleep there after. Please suggest and confirm, what should we do. Note, he is on Valporine Chrono 200 for last 18 months.

Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
According to what you have written your son is suffering from epilepsy and is on medicines for that.Any medicine causes acidity in stomach in elders as well as children and that may be one of the cause of feeling of vomiting so consult his doctor and he may start on an antacid if needed.Drugs like Valparine can cause altered liver enzymes giving rise to drug induced jaundice.The best thing to do is to consult the treating physician and get examined by him and he will give treatment accordingly.
Thanks

Your description lacks many vital details like the duration of the said problem, past medical history including the reason for him being on valparin and other medications, if any, taken in the past. Also, the family history may be relevant, for eg. does anyone in the family has recurrent headaches, i.e. Migrane? To begin with, I suggest a blood test - SGPT, to rule out liver toxicity due to valparin which can cause the vomiting sensation.Since he must be already under regular treatment of someone from where he is receiving Valparin, I suggest you bring this problem immediately to that physician's notice and let him perform a thorough physical examination.

Now tobight this happens. Does he need to go to the doctor?

I have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?

I am a 37 yr old woman. 5 4 in height and 143lbs. I have started waking up to dizzy spells. They don t happen while I am wide awake, but seem to wake me up out of a twilight sleep. The most severe dizziness happens when I roll over onto my back. I am also slighty nauseaus and have a mild headache. I went to lay back down a few hours later and the same thing happened. This same issue occurred a few weeks ago. Can you help?

I have had cold hands all my life, and in general have been always on the cold side. I have had had back and sciatic related leg/foot pain issues for the last four years involving L4 region. I have been diagnosed with epilepsy 12 plus years ago - coinciding, time wise, with a stressful marital divorce. I question stress and or sleep apnea as a trigger, since the University of Cincinnati is studying a possible link to the apnea and epilepsy. I have been totally controlled for over 10 years with dilantin and Keppra (generic) and would love to get off medication, if not needed. Recently, I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea and wear an oral appliance which is working very well. Now recently, I am experiencing an increase in numbness and tingling in my hands and feet. Also, about six/seven years ago, I started having a series of skin eruptions - small, itchy, and crusty - occurring anywhere on my body, mostly on my trunk. They are more intense initially then subside yet leaving a small, permanent and crusty eruption which may flare up on occasions. A dermatologist diagnosed this as Grover s disease. My last blood tests were mostly normal except for a high good cholesterol reading, which my M.D. stated out weighed the overall high cholesterol reading. First, what is your opinion on the skin eruptions, and secondly, how might my other issues be perceived. My blood sugar levels have been fine over the years, yet I do wonder about type two diabetes particularly with the tingling extremities. I also wonder about a possible thyroid involvement, since the blood tests have revealed a borderline reading. No history in the family of either issue. My back issue has improved recently - curiously, as the tingling became more apparent. Connection? With the present state of hurry-up office visits, my questions are superfluously addressed. - frustration. Thank you for your opinion!
