I have this feeling of constant pressure in “glabella region” ?

Hi, for the last couple of months i have this feeling of constant pressure in “glabella region”, its not painful just the feeling of constant pressure, at times i get this odd sensation of feeling high.

How to get rid of a bad headache and nausea?

I have had a constant headache for about 2 weeks now. This morning I stood up with a huge headache, cant even handle the pain anymore. I ate a piece of chocolate cake (Which I Love) I felt nausea since now. Yesterday my breasts were so sore I could not even wear a tight shirt. Been having tummy aches now and then, but nothing serious since now. Also I have very bad backache, but it could be a result of my chair I sit on at work, not quite sure what the reason is for it.

Can someone please advise on what I can do to get rid of this bad aches and this nausea.

THANK YOU

Suffering from magnesium supplements overdose?

My husband has been taking magnesium supplements as a pre-workout regimen for approximately 2 months. He is 43 years old, healthily, and active. He told me yesterday, he has been taking 2000mg of magnesium daily, without realizing this is above the daily recommended value of 350mg. He began experiencing loose stool/diarrhea symptoms this weekend, not severe, but noticeable. He has not shown any other symptoms. Is this something that he should have checked or will his body naturally flush the magnesium from his system? Is there something we can do to reverse the effects of the magnesium more quickly? Thank you!

Is spider spray dangerous for my health?

So I recently moved to Texas, and as the saying goes “Everything is bigger in Texas,” including spiders. I moved into a house in Kyle in a development that is kind of in the country. I am terrified of spiders, especially the brown recluse, given all the horror stories about their bite and biting people in their sleep. Wolf spiders are a problem in this house, and yesterday, I killed the biggest spider I have ever seen in my life (not sure what it was, but it was terrifying!) in the garage. Prior to all of this, I sprayed the perimeter of the house twice with Ortho Home Defense, and my bedroom at least 5, if not 6 times. (Not all in the same day, but over the coarse of several days). While spraying the small, carpeted room, I had the door closed and no windows open because I didn’t want to let spiders in. I didn’t even give it any thought that I may be breathing it in because my anxiety completely took over. I slept in there for a week then I went on vacation for 3 weeks. When I came back, there were at least 4 or 5 dead little spiders on the carpet. I feel safe that the poison is doing it’s job at killing at least the small spiders, but now I am freaking out that I may have given myself cancer or the risk of cancer because I sprayed so much and didn’t ventilate the room properly, even though I left after spraying. I am a healthy (as far as I know), active 31 year old female. Should I be concerned or how concerned should I be? And is it still safe to sleep in the room because even though I feel a little more protected from the spiders, I’m afraid of breathing in the poison anymore. What should I do? Thank you so much for your help.

Is it bad to always take antibiotics?

Hi Doc,
Is it bad to always take antibiotics? This year I have taken 3 courses of Augmentin. Ever since I did my radiotherapy 4 years ago on my nose, I seem to catch bacteria flu quite easily. It will start with lots and lots of greenish mucus coming out from my nostril and then I will get a very cough soon enough. It is the same every time.I always needed Augmentin to recover fully. But after 3 months or so I will get the same thing over again . . I am worried that Augmentin will not be able to work one day as the bacteria may become more resistant. I am currently down with the same thing but have not gone to see a doctor yet.. I am 100% positive that it is another bacteria attack, Should I go for another course of Augmentin? I have taken so many courses and I am getting worried. I am thinking of doing a yearly flu jab once I recover. Will the flu jab protects me from further attacks

For almost one month now I have been dealing with stomach problems?

For almost one month now I have been dealing with stomach problems. It started when I was away on holidays. My travelling companion fell ill for 2 days with a stomach bug (presumably) and felt okay. She got sick once, rested in bed and was okay soon after. I fell ill approximately 2 days after her. Symptoms of nausea, fever, light-headedness – however I did not get sick. The symptoms improved over time, but I still find that I have not completely recovered. I don’t have much of an appetite, I feel a type of bulge or tightness is my throat/oesophagus and I am unable to eat large amounts. I would describe my symptoms similar to acid reflux, but I don’t feel that burning sensation.

I went to see a doctor one week after being ill while I was still on my holidays. He diagnosed it as a stomach virus. I have a family history of gallstones and h pylori infections. I have been putting off going for a second appointment as I feel my symptoms aren’t that severe, plus I feel as though I am anxious about the whole situation and that could be making my symptoms worse than they actually are. Could you recommend what course of action I should take? Is a second appointment justified, or is it likely a lingering stomach virus? Is there a need for urgency?

Thanking you in advance,

I may have autoimmune hepatitis, please advise, need second doctor opinion?

Hello, I went to a gastro to talk about gallstones, he said I have fatty liver (nafld) and ran bloodwork. Everything ok, EXCEPT:
positive ANA speckled 1:80
F-ACTIN IgG 22.5
SMOOTH MUSCLE IgG TITER: 1:20
he sent me back to my primary, who sent me to rheumatologist, who said it was not autoimmune, and of no concern to him, he sent me back to gastro. Redid ASMA and it came back Weak Positive at “20”. Is what they told me. Now, nothing, he does not seem concerned. I have googled all this, and it shows hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis, and horrible diseases. I am at a loss and do not know what to do. I know my Hepatitis came back all non reactive, and I donate blood every year. I am so confused. Thank you for any insight

Is working the Night Shift bad for your health?

hi Doc. Since May 10, 2017, I’ve started working on a night shift, sitting all the day long, from 8-5. I don’t smoke nor drink. I also sleep at least 8 hrs a day. My friends keep on telling me my kind of work could give me several health complications. They say that the body repairs itself (including the vital organs) during the wee hours of the day and I’m supposed to be resting during those hours, and not working. Is there any truth to this? What should I do to keep myself healthy while working on a night shift?

Both of my feet and ankles swelled up really bad and were very painful, also red?

So about 12 days ago, at night, both of my feet and ankles swelled up really bad and were very painful, also red. It was mostly gone the next morning but later that night it happened again only significantly worse, to the point where I could barely walk. The next few days it was seemingly on the mend and was going good until 2 nights ago now but only the top of the left foot now this time. It feels like I broke it pretty much but I haven’t had any injuries as to where that would happen….I guess I’m just wondering if anyone knows what this is…..?? Please help

I have had a very odd migraine?

I’ve been having a very odd migraine today full of countless new symptoms.
Headache on left front side with a crazy visual aura, took zomig, hour later took ibuprofen 600, albuterol sulfate and Ritalin. Cold and hot feeling across skin, mostly on right side, nausea, joint pain, burning pain in abdomen and chest, dizzy, tired and short of breath. Migrating sharp pains across body. Ringing ears. Vision is unnaturally blurry. Chest and stomach symptoms worsen when laying down, head symptoms worsen when standing up. Symptoms quickly come and go except for vision, coldness, nausea and burning, which are constant. Zomig tasted so bad as it eventually dripped my neck that I hacked a few times and a little blood came up.

I have asthma, adhd, insomnia and depression. Two months ago I experienced an overdose on excedrin, clonidine and benadryl and recovered. At the time, I was informed of a potential heart murmur. Lymph nodes have been tender and large for years but one has become hard in the last month. I occasionally have moments where I loose a couple seconds and get startled. I get random, painless muscle spasms quite regularly. I normally have lower blood pressure floating around 120/55. I take lexapro at 10 mg, claritin 24 hour, folonase, concerta( just moved from 27 mg to 36 mg). Just added seroquel at 25 mg and ritalin in the afternoons. I was prescribed albuterol sulfate, ibuprofen 600 mg and zomig nasal as needed.
Cold spells arent new and randomly come and go, normally lasting several hours and spreading along right side from face down. Feet and hands are normally cold, sometimes blotchy purple.
Two weeks ago I had a clean MRI without contrast.
I do not drink, use drugs or smoke.
My appetite has been haywire lately and over a week I lost 16 pounds. Accidentally binging this week when the concerta wears off has gotten me half way back up to old weight.
