    Coughing because of nausea

    Hello! Sometimes my girlfriend tends to cough when nauseated. Also sometimes she is nauseated because she coughs too intensely. We just ate, she is nauseated, she feels like the coughing is helping her not to throw up. Is this normal? Can coughing help with nausea?

    Proton pump inhibitor comparison: 30mgs of Lansoprazole vs 20mgs of Nexium

    I've been taking 30mgs of Lansoprazole for the past few months as directed by a doctor. Unfortunately, the prescription got messed up and it looks like I'm going to be without it for the foreseeable future. If I take over the counter Nexium will that function basically the same? On all the packaging it says to "Not take more than 14 days unless directed by a doctor." I'm not sure if that's something specific to this medication or if it's just a warning they need to put....

    Heartburn with severe pain

    I am 52 and very overweight. In the last month I have had heartburn every day sometimes twice a day. I get severe pain in my chest, abdomen, right side and sometimes into my back. I had my gallbladder out years ago so that's not it. I wonder if it is due to the influx in my weight. Antacids help for a while, but it comes back. I seem to get it after I eat and when I have not eaten and am completely empty of food. Any suggestions?

I have a endoscopy scheduled for Feb but I was just wondering....

    I’m a 24 year old male who has had some stomach issues for the past month. I have had a lot of gas and I always feel bloated... I don’t have any severe pain in my stomach but I can always “feel” my stomach if that makes sense. For the most part I go normally once or twice a day and it is rarely diarrhea.

The main concern is when I wipe there appears to be small blackish spots....

    Could it be anxiety or gastrointeritis?

    Hello. I am a person that generally suffers from obsessive fears about specific things and currently I am worried about anxiety or some new illness ruining an upcoming dream trip. Well last night I was out with a few colleagues of mine from university. A bit before that I started to feel sick and experienced hot flashes and extreme thirst, but thought it would eventually go away. Then I had one drink and all of a sudden my obsessive fears increased and eventually I had an anxiety attack. This resulted....
