I do not have any of the items you have listed as far as symptoms, but I have felt nauseous and hot alot today - like I can' get cooled off as well as a little bit dizzy and weak. I also know when I tried to pee at work earlier tonight, I had trouble going at first but I eventually was able to go. But my right side keeps hurting and throbbing some. Please Help
Doctor: Dr. Salar, Doctor replied 8 years ago
there qare several possibilities here. this can be either gastritis, acid reflux, gall bladder related issue or urinary tract infection. you should start taking prilosec otc. eat soft diet and avoid fizzy soda. drink plenty of water. take tylenol for it. if symptoms persist you should see your doctor for liver function tests and ultrasound of abdomen.

I know that I felt the same way a couple of years ago, and they thought it was my appendix but it was not. Also, when you say soft diet, what would you reccommend ?

Doctor: Dr. Salar, Doctor replied 8 years ago
soft diet means rice, bread, milk, soups,

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.
