Abdominal Pain, Bloodshot Eyes, Pounding Headache

Even when you’re feeling better, be kind to your stomach when reintroducing foods after gastroenteritis. When trying a solid food, have a tiny portion to see how you do. If you keep it in/down it’s ok. Eat and drink small, frequent portions even after you’re well enough to feel hungry.

The sweating just before vomiting was so unpleasant. I soaked my shirt and my hair in sweat.

Heart Disease Guide

“It’s concerning because the problem can be missed. It doesn’t show up on a traditional angiogram, which can lead to delayed diagnosis if physicians dismiss the chest pain as nothing,” says Erin Michos, M.D., associate director of preventive cardiology at the Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease. Microvascular angina is an especially worrisome source of cardiac chest pain, and it’s often misdiagnosed because it doesn’t show up as a blockage in the larger heart arteries during testing. This fact can cause doctors to miss the underlying cause.

Many people have leg swelling from causes other than heart disease. However, the collection of fluid in your legs can be a warning sign of heart problems. This is especially true if you have other symptoms, such as shortness of breath, especially with activity. You may have swelling in your abdomen, too. Tell your healthcare provider if your legs, ankles, or feet have become swollen.

I could not believe I could get something like this in the summer. I have some kind of stomach flu for a month now. I have been in and out of hospital and they haven’t found anything as of yet.

I have had nausea and vomiting and diarrhea for over three weeks. I had gastroenteritis for three days.

Heart attack

I can’t begin to remember the last time I had a full nights sleep. I have had symptoms like this for several years and within the last year I feel like I am in constant pain. I found out 3 weeks ago that I have Barrett’s Esophagus, my mother and 4 of her sisters/brother have Barrett’s or GERD, my grandfather died of esophageal cancer. Currently I’m still fighting the stomach flu which started 2 days ago.

my two-year-old daughter. The husband and baby got better, but my daughter and I are still having bouts of vomiting and diarrhea that come and go unexpectedly. After an internal and external ultrasound, full body CT scan and an entire blood work-up I was admitted to the hospital. IV pain meds (morphine and Vicodin), IV antibiotics (3 different antibiotics at different times of the day), fluids and 3 days later they still weren’t sure what was wrong. My symptoms were stomach cramping, pain, sore muscles and bones, pain in my mid-back and at base of my skull.

I am into day 9 of the gastroenteritis with not much relief in sight. I thought I might be able to return to work this morning and as such was taking a shower when I became so weak and woozy I could have fallen in the shower. I called my boss immediately and slept 4 more hours. The first couple days I had vomiting; after that no more retching but the feeling of nausea remains. When I have diarrhea it is in bouts.

My legs and shoulders began to ache rather badly. That’s when I decided to go home. Once home I immediately went to the bathroom and became rather nauseous. That night I went to bed with a high fever, sweating profusely, and cramping in my abdomen.

I’m 36 years old now and I’ve only had to be on meds twice since I was 22. Even if I have a ‘cheat’ day I don’t suffer any set backs like I did when I was younger and on meds. Never underestimate the power of a good workout. It’ll help you digest your food faster and keep you feeling much better than most medications. I found a doctor in the hospital who was doing a clinical trial on people with untreated GERD.

She put me on a proton pump inhibitor and I can’t tell you how amazing it was – I took the first pill, and that night for the first time in years I didn’t have heartburn! She told me I’d probably need to be on PPIs the rest of my life if I didn’t want the heartburn to come back.

This is also another indicator that the pain is because of acid reflux over a cardiac issues, as cardiac pain doesn’t subside even when you shift or straighten your position. Symptoms caused by problems digesting food include feeling full quickly when eating, bloating, lots of wind, and burping. But these symptoms are common problems and aren’t usually due to cancer.

How much do the symptoms of heartburn and heart attack overlap?

So, waiting so much without the proper medication, I also got Barrett’s esophagus. I’m 14, and I think that this is something I should not have to go through or worry about. I mean I’m not saying I’m the only one, but sometimes it worries me, like I wonder if it’s gonna hurt me somehow, and not a lot of people understand what it is. They say “oh ya, GERD is just heartburn, no big deal” but to me, it is. It was a Monday, and I felt uncomfortable in class.

My whole day yesterday was in the bathroom or asleep. I feel I should return to the doctor for IV fluids, I have had Gatorade, water, flat Coke, orange juice and very little to eat at a time.
