Q. Has anyone have any experience with this?

I’m 15 years old male and having acid reflux. I have tried lot of meds but nothing is effective and I did not get any remedy. I came across something which says Chinese herbalists can help or even cure it. Has anyone have any experience with this? If you think it is a good idea? Please answer and I will be really grateful!
A1hey, waylon. if you want to try chinese medicine, go for it, as long as you understand clearly how does that medication treat you.
in acid reflux condition, some notes you need to remember are:
- you need to eat regularly
- you need to reduce your stress
- avoid some foods like: acid foods, coffee, spicy foods

and maybe you can try -if you want- consume daily yogurt with apple cider vinegar. apple cider vinegar is believed to be able to help gastric problem.
A2Hi there. I would suggest you try digestive enzymes BEFORE you eat. You can get multiple enzymes practically at any drug or health food store, just be sure betaine is included. I believe acid reflux is caused by NOT enough acid in your stomach, so food just sits there instead of being broken down and passed on through your body. The enzymes definitely helped my husband...he's no longer on Zantac and really enjoys eating again. No side effects, either....
A3hello WAYLON,your problem,is what you eat/and what time you eat/most kids your age eat just about anything,like petula said,OH i forgot how much you eat---cut out the fast food(YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS)--dont eat before you lay down/4hrs before you go to bed/eat small meals,enstead of one or two large ones during the day(PUT THE CANDY DOWN).I dont know where you live,but here in the united states,all schools have changed there minu to cut out the bad things that affect young people like you/fat and sugar for one.---IN SIMPLE TERMS,ACID REFLUX IS YOUR STROMACH,MAKING TO MUCH ACID,and it come out of you like,when you shake up a bottle of soda.ACID BREAKS DOWN THE FOOD THAT YOU EAT/the more food you eat/the more acid you make---mrfoot56

Q. Can anyone here share with me your experiences….?

hey, hi to all…..Very recently I came to know about amniocentesis. With this we can see the baby`s gender..Can anyone here share with me your experiences….?
ANo my dear amniocentesis is not used to find baby`s gender rather its ultrasound for it. Amniocentesis is used to detect any genetic problems such as Down’s syndrome or any other chromosomal abnormalities but not gender of the child. Even infection of the amniotic fluid is checked during amniocentesis. They are also used to check the maturity of the baby`s lungs. Yes it is done under the guidance of an ultrasound. If anyone wants to check for gender they have to go for an ultrasound.

Q. Could anyone share your experience here?

your attention here please…..One of my friend is pregnant and after a long and multiple diagnosis she has been confirmed positive for breast cancer. She is badly depressed and is much worried about the child and the effect it will have during pre/post birth. She wants the child to be healthy and normal. Could anyone share your experience here?
AA) It shows the love and affection the mother has towards the expectant baby. It is good that her breast cancer is diagnosed because it is difficult when one is pregnant. Breast cancer will not harm baby at all, what harms the baby are some of the treatments for breast cancer - and these depend on how advanced the cancer may be. If at early stage her lump will be removed or have surgery for the affected area. The chemotherapy treatment or the medications will be carried after your 1st trimester. This will reduce the harm a baby can get. On advanced stages of cancer, due to radiation treatment and chemotherapy involved with surgery makes the situation tough and makes the survival difficult for mother and baby or even both. So it depends on the stage of your cancer, which you must ask the treating doctor. In early stage of cancer the survival of both mother and baby is possible.Better check her cancer stage. I wish her speedy recovery and safe delivery.

Q. Does anyone have similar experience or advice for me please?

Hi everyone, I am new to this site, and am desperate for some advice to suit my situation. I was tested positive on December 14th. I started bleeding moderately on December 19th for 5 days. I went for a sonogram on 29 th and the tech saw absolutely nothing. She doubted my pregnancy and she found a cyst on one ovary, no gestational sac. Does anyone have similar experience or advice for me please? Can anyone offer some insight? I am yet to meet my doctor with reports.
AI am sorry… had a sac on ovary, which may be an ectopic pregnancy. I am sorry to say you may even have to lose this pregnancy. But if they find something else then it may be possible that you may have to undergo a minor surgery now as you told of no gestational sacks which again reminds of ectopic. Please be calm, till you meet your doctor and have the full view, this is just my understanding as my friend faced similar situation and we read a lot about ectopic.

Q. does anyone have experience switching from metformin to janumet?

Janumet is metformin... it's a generic name for it. metformin is a substance name and there's all kind of drug companies that manufacture it (all in different names and little formula differences).

Q. Has anyone had any luck with this? If so, can you share with me your experience?

Am questioning from my hubby user name,For the past 4 days the nausea tied me to bathroom. I didn’t vomit but the nausea is so awful that it gave me a permanent headache. I did struggle for the whole day. I tried everything right from ginger tea to eating high protein, fasting and resting a lot as my doc told. I have now decided to move onto vitamin B6. Has anyone had any luck with this? If so, can you share with me your experience?
AI tried during my days, it didn’t help much. But when I took with doxylamine, it was effective and it was in 2 days the nausea controlled to my bearable levels. My colleagues were benefited by only B6. One of my friends was even not benefited with doxylamine. She had very high nausea and became completely hopeless. Soon she was put on zofran with B6, and it worked. You know it’s difficult to prescribe meds in the forum as you may have to consult a physician to ensure safe medication.

Q. Can anyone tell the symptoms of and any information and experiences?

My granddaughter is freaky from her childhood. Very recently she tried a hair style by cutting 90% of her hair, which apparently didn’t suit her. She gets so annoyed and frustrated for minor issues and does all sorts of bullshit. When she gets anger she uses all kinds of bad words which no one in this earth could tolerate. We are keeping a high vigilance on her. Diagnosis is going on and not sure but only suspected to be bipolar. Can anyone tell the symptoms of and any information and experiences?
AMy sister had beautiful dark hair down to butt. She suddenly cut it to about an inch. She just started growing it back after medication. For your information here are Signs and symptoms of bipolar with mania: Extreme irritability, restlessness, Fast in talking and frequent change in thinking, Distractibility, less need for sleep, Unrealistic, grandiose beliefs in one's abilities and powers, lack of judgment, high on spending , A lasting period of a single behavior, over use of drugs, aggressive behavior, never feels wrong for anything.
