Customer Question
Hi. My 22...

Hi. My 22 yo son has been getting over a stomach cold which has also caused him to vomit. This evening, it appears his ears were clogged and when he was able to pop them, one ear brought about pain and made him vomit to now at the point of dry heaves. After a couple of hours rest, the ear pain subsided but the nausea and dry heaves continue to include dizziness. Any thoughts/remedies?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?

Nothing noticed

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of

Hi

Welcome to just answer

I am Dr Gupta, board certified and practicing since last 18 years

Could you give some more information regarding your son's condition -

- since when has he been unwell?

- Besides vomitting and dry heaves, is he having any other symptoms like fever, cold, cough, diarrhea?

- what medicine is he taking?

- is he able to eat or drink anything?

Regards

He has had the stomach flu and cold for about a week. Medications had been treated for. Over th counter flu medicine, pain relievers and rest. That also ncluded nausea, vomiting and body aches. It had appeared he was over it and getting better, the day before yesterday and then today, or last night, the ear clogging and then pain, dry heaves and very little sleep. He has no fever noticed, no diarrhea but there is coughing which may be also related to his dry heaves. He is drying to drink water and soda, like 7up

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
