Doctor, these three days I found my stools becoming too watery. What problem is that? I don’t have any stomachache though. This condition makes me weak.
I have had gastric pain for a long time. Now sometimes in the morning I feel cold and weak. The back of my neck aches and the pain radiates to my left shoulder. I am a 70 year old female whose weight is 35kg and blood pressure is 137/70. Is my problem related to my gastric pain?
Doctor, I have a history of gastric acid. The last time I checked, I was diagnosed with gallstones. Now it feels like the gallstones recurred because my upper right stomach, near the ribs, radiates with pain through my back. I feel my gastric acid acting up again as well and my body is cold. What medicine should I take? The doctor usually gives me a vitamin for the liver, gastric medicine and painkillers.
I am 49 years old. I am always burping and have had gastric acid for a long time now. What medicine works for this?
Doctor, I had a test and the result shows my SGPT score was high at 98. Does high SGPT indicate a problem in the liver? How do I decrease it?
Doctor, I feel dizzy everyday and my body feels weak as if I will faint. I also feel nauseous, and sometimes my stomach hurts and feels full. My hands and feet are weak. My sight is dim and my breath is short, Doctor. Please give me your advice.
Doctor, I am a 64 year old female who had a stroke 6 months ago. Now I can walk. I saw a neurologist and was prescribed hypertension medicines - himfastatin, amilodipin, clopidogrel. But I feel my gut is burning and it is hard for me to breathe. I grew thinner (my weight before the stroke was 46kg and I am now 36.5kg). I also have gastric acid reflux. Please give me the solution, Doc. Thank you.
Doctor, my USG showed that my liver fat is within the normal limit. Sgot and sgpt are normal too. What medicine should I take? I have also been doing regular exercises everyday when I consulted an internist.
