Hello! I am a 16 year old girl who has had my hernia for about 3 years now. My doctor did say that my hernia should have healed itself by now, but it hasn't. I've been waiting for it to heal because I have belly fat that I would love to lose. You know the pressures that women have to deal with. Besides that, I want to be slimmer, everytime I exercise, all I do is lose the fat and gain muscles in my arms and legs! Is there anything I can do about my stomach fat without making my hernia worse?

doctor1 MD

Hi.Greetings from Hcm.Since you have noticed a swelling in the groin and disappearing with lying down probably you may be suffering from inguinal hernia.If would have been due to lymphadenitis in the groin the swelling will persist Since you have taken treatment the swelling is not due to STD

Hi my name is Steve, I am 25 years , male. I have been suffering for the last year and a bit (since i stopped smoking) with the following symptoms : Belching , bloated stomach , fatigue , shortness of breath at times ,bloating makes it hard to breath, symptoms get worse when in moving vehicles. I don t get heartburn or any burning sensation at all in my esophagus. I had a gastroscopy about 3 months a go and was told that i have a Hiatus Hernia. I was put on nexium for a few months...it hasnt helped at all. im convinced that the hiatus hernia has nothing to do with the problem causing my symptoms. I went back to the doctor and was put on treatment for IBS and told to not eat certain foods..... its now 2 months later and i feel like im at the beginning again....feel just as i did the first time i went to the doctor. It is highly frustrating as it is effecting my daily life. Please Please help me understand what is going on.

Hello, for the last week, I have experienced sharp drops in my blood sugar, I have pretty severe hypoglycemia, but somewhat controlled with diet, however lately it seems like I am dropping much more often than before. I am experiencing constipation, but suffer more from diarrhea most of the time. My magnesium, potassium and calcium are all low, as well as some of the B vitamins and vitamin D that I know of. I have muscle weakness, fatigue, a hiatal hernia and acid reflux. But, it seems that there should be some underlying cause that I am missing to cause a vast array of symptoms and sensations. Can constipation cause weird sensations throughout the body like a heavy and full feeling in the head, pressure on the sides of my head, burning legs from the knees down, burning and tingling down the right side of my face that comes and goes and almost like electrical zips or zaps in the mid-center of my body along with a feeling of being hollow or empty even after eating? It is getting to the point that it is debilitating, and yet my doctor wants to blow it off as in my head. I live in a very rural area and he is the only one for almost fifty miles that takes my insurance.
