Customer Question
My husband is 70...

My husband is 70 years old. For the past few weeks he has had periodic nausea and weakness. This week salty saliva has been added to the nausea. He also has a lot of indigestion during the night that wakes him up, He just passed a an EKG during a pre-op exam. The surgery was minor!

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I took him in once for the nausea in ER. They found nothing wrong. But the salty saliva is new. These are his medications: Tamsulosin .04mg HCL, amloditine besylate, 10 mg, Finasteride, 5mg, hydrochlorothiazide, 12.5mg, Atorvastatin,20mg, Bupropion Hcl close, 150 mg. Waiting for your answer. Thanks!

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Just sent his medications. Not allergic to any medications.

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

He just had surgery for a deviated septum and some tissue removal. Has high blood pressure, high cholesterol, emmlarged prostate.

Not sure what question you are asking. Of course, we can not diagnose him and that is not what we do. We answer specific questions.

I am sure you are concerned but it appears he has had no work up for the nausea. An EKG does not exclude a heart problem.

GI problems require other tests.

Has his doctor seen him?

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.
