What could be wrong, worms or ulcer?

What are signs of diabetes? (sorry if i spelled that wrong. )?
i have signs of diabetes but im not sure if i have it or not. i have a physical in 2 weeks and im going to get blood taken and tested, im scared, my friend has it and shes perfectly fine, but yet again shes not me…and if i do have it how do i know if its type 1, or 2? what are the symptoms?
Answer by Thomas
Not everybody has the same symptoms but with diabetes type 1 you can:
* Be very thirsty
* Have to pee very often
* Have lost a lot of weight in little time
* Not see very well
The first two are very common.
You get diabetes type 2 when you are overweight.

Diabetes Type 1: Symtoms of type 2
In type 1, the pancreas stop producing insulin, due to autuimmune response or possibly viral attack on pancreas. In absence of insulin, body cells does not get glucose for producing ATP (Adenosin Triphosphate) units which results into primary symptom in the form of nausea and vomiting. In latter stage which leads to ketoacidosis in which body starts breaking down muscle tissue and fat for energy, there is consequently fast weight loss. Dehydration is also usually observed due to electrolyte disturbance. In advance stages even coma and death, are being witnessed.
Diabetes Type 2:
* Increased fatigue : Due to inefficiency of cell to metabolise glucose, reserve fat of body is metabolised to gain energy. When fat is broken down in the body, it uses more energy as compared to glucose, hence body goes in negative calorie effect, which results in fatigue.
* Polydipsia : As the concentration of glucose increases in the blood, brain receives signal for diluting it and in its counteraction we feel thirsty.
* Polyuria: Increase in urine production is the result seen when excess of glucose is present in body. Body tries to get rid of the extra sugar in the blood by excreting it through the urine. This can also lead to dehydration because excreting the sugar which carries a large amount of water out of the body along with it.
* Polyphegia : The hormone insulin is also responsible for stimulating hunger. In order to cope up with high sugar levels in blood, body produces insulin which leads to increased hunger.
* Weight flactuation : Factors like loss of water (polyuria), glucosuria , metabolism of body fat and protein may lead to loss of weight. Few cases may show weight gain due to increased appetite.
* Blurry vision : Hyperosmolar hyperglycemia nonketotic syndrome is the condition when body fluid is pulled out of tissues including lenses of eye, which affects the ability of lenses to focus resulting in blurry vision.
* Irritability : It is one of the sign of high blood sugar because of the inefficient supply of glucose to brain and other body organs, which makes us feel tired and uneasy.
* Infections : Certain signals from the body is given whenever there is fluctuation of blood sugar (due to suppression of immune system) by frequent infections of fungal or bacterial like skin infection or UTI (urinary tract infection).
* Poor wound healing : High blood sugar resists the flourishing of WBC, (white blood cell) which are responsible for body immune system. When these cells do not function accordingly, wound healing is not at good pace. Secondly, long standing diabetes leads to thickening of blood vessels which may affect proper circulation of blood in different body part
Information that you read on answers may be more accurate than what your doctor may tell you !!!
Answer by dan
The classical symptoms are polyuria and polydipsia which are, respectively, frequent urination and increased thirst and consequent increased fluid intake.
Symptoms may develop quite rapidly (weeks or months) in type 1 diabetes, particularly in children. However, in type 2 diabetes symptoms usually develop much more slowly and may be subtle or completely absent.
Type 1 diabetes may also cause a rapid yet significant weight loss (despite normal or even increased eating) and irreducible mental fatigue.
All of these symptoms except weight loss can also manifest in type 2 diabetes in patients whose diabetes is poorly controlled, although unexplained weight loss may be experienced at the onset of the disease.
Final diagnosis is made by measuring the blood glucose concentration.
Blurred vision is a common complaint leading to a diabetes diagnosis; type 1 should always be suspected in cases of rapid vision change, whereas with type 2 change is generally more gradual, but should still be suspected.
Patients (usually with type 1 diabetes) may also initially present with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), an extreme state of metabolic dysregulation characterized by the smell of acetone on the patient’s breath; a rapid, deep breathing known as Kussmaul breathing; polyuria; nausea; vomiting and abdominal pain; and any of many altered states of consciousness or arousal (such as hostility and mania or, equally, confusion and lethargy).
In severe DKA, coma may follow, progressing to death. Diabetic ketoacidosis is a medical emergency and requires immediate hospitalization.

I am 17 and I have been having headaches daily. Could there be something wrong?
I have been having headaches since I was little and I always took pills. I have become immune to the pills and they don’t even work anymore. Now my head has been hurting daily. And it is a huge pain. What could be going on?
Answer by Anna
it sounds like you suffer from migraines , i suffer from migraines and i can have them everyday for a week at the worst , there is medication available from the chemist / drug store what are relief pain for people who suffer from migraines / severe headaches
other symptoms you may experience :
spots / patterns in eyes
you may faint / pass out
and tension on the back of neck which feels like your heads heavy !
try the tablets out and if they work then carry on taking them .
They come in a packet , different coloured tablets , you start of with the smallest dose if it doesn’t work you take the higher dose with it and if you have a full blown headache then you take all 3 , it sounds complicated but read the back of box/leaflet and you will understand hope you feel better soon
Answer by Robzilla
If you suffer(ed) from migraines you would associate the pain with the auras, light and sound sensitivity, and nausea that are commonly associated with them. They are much more intense than you can imagine without having one; but are commonly misidentified as sinus headaches, allergies, or cluster headaches; the latter of which implies the most concern. It may be worth having a neurologist examine the headache if it is life-altering. In my experience, my migraine put me out of commission for 48-72 hours at a time, but in of themselves did not represent anything beyond typical “idiosyncratic” migraine. This is what Lewis Carrol experienced while writing Alice’s Adventures Through the Looking Glass…

What is wrong with me? Do I have a parasite? Or maybe an Ulcer?
It started a month ago, I had diarrhea with blood in it once every morning that would take me about 30-40 minutes in the bathroom. Then it progressed to twice a day. and now over a month later i have the urge to go to the bathroom every 15-25 minutes sometimes only having a small amount come out. Went to the hospital twice, they ran blood tests and did a rectal exam and said i need a colonoscopy or some form of it. but they cant do it til may first. i am nauseaous sometimes and dont really have an appetite. i have been drinking coconut water and eating as healthy as i can manage. i also started taking a multi vitamin for anything i may not be getting or losing going to the bathroom so often. my feces looks like whatever i ate only turned into what looks like pulp. anyone know what it could be? i suspect a bleeding ulcer or a parasite
Answer by John
Hi K Bronze,
Do you have any of the following Symptoms ? if yes then it could be bleding ulcer.
* A gnawing or burning pain in the abdomen
* Blood in vomit or stool
* Loss of appetite
* Loss of weight
Your doctor may be able to determine if you have an ulcer just by talking with you about your symptoms. However, to confirm the diagnosis one of several tests should be taken. Also eat a diet rich in fiber, especially from fruits and vegetables,Rest and relax a few minutes before and after each meal, as well as remaining relaxed during meals.

What could be wrong with me (headaches, nausea, diarrhea)?
For the past few days I been getting nausea quite frequently. I’ve also been “pooing” after ever single meal or drink (not water). However, the stool are not loose. I’ve also experience the occasional light nausea and headaches.
Answer by RogerFederer
Hope you feel better!
Answer by Ileana
Stomach Virus maybe
Answer by Courtney
You could be experiencing, a stomach virus. I’ve had this before and passed out multiple times once it got worse. I think if you do not feel better within 24 hours you need to go see the doctor. You should try to keep a lot of fluids in you. Anything could help, Try to drink Gatorade or powerade. You may not want to try to eat anything as it may make things worse, If you feel that you need to eat a little something try crackers, or a little soup. Nothing Heavy.Good luck, and Hope you get well real soon!
nausea headaches: What could be wrong with me (headaches, nausea, diarrhea)?
Is there something seriously wrong with my health?
Im a 15 year old female. I was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) and Vitamin D deficiency.
For the last month and a half I have had severe Nausea, Fatigue, Headaches, and Heartburn. Also have have had a few vomiting episodes. Dry mouth and cough. I’ve been choking on my food which probably has to do with the EoE. Abdominal Cramps, easy bruising and swollen lymph nodes. Two days ago I woke up in the night 7-8 times with SEVERE joint pain. From my hip bones all the way to my toes. It was a sharp stabbing, throbbing feeling. The next day the pain began in my shoulders, elbows, wrists and fingers. Muscle weakness and weakness in general. I havent really gotten out of bed because my joints are killing me. Is there something seriously wrong here? what could it be?
I also want to add I have had a loss of appetite,, and have lost about 5-10 pounds.
I forgot to include dizziness and shortness of breath. Also I limp on one leg because my other leg in in a lot of pain and is very weak.
Answer by Cindy in Texas
I would recommend a low carb way of eating to help identify the food that is triggering Eosinophilic Esophagitis. Just optimizing your vitD levels may resolve this issue.
I believe that if you optimize your vitD levels to the highest range of normal (80 ng/ml) many issues will be resolved or minimized.
83% of people with low back pain were vitamin D deficient
95% of people with chronic pain had the pain go away with vitamin D
My theory is that since vitD is a mucolytic agent, it keeps lymph fluid thin & flowing. When the lymph fluids get thick &the fluids pool around nerves putting pressure on the nerves & triggering pain. Lymph fluids have no “pump” like the heart & works on gravity & movement to flow & fluids drain away relieving pressure on the nerves.
Symptoms of acute vitD deficiency can include -
Weakness, Sadness, Listlessness, Tiredness, Muscle-Pain,
Twitching, (Eyelid, Arm, or Legs)
fingernails have small white spots,
Standing causes back, hip, groin, and/or leg pain.
Vitamin D3 deficiency has become an epidemic, probably because people are washing daily. If you wash skin exposed to the sun within 48 hours, you wash off the oils where the vitamin D production starts. In northern latitudes (above that of Atlanta, Georgia) the sun is at too low an angle for half the year to provide sufficient UV radiation. If even available, UVB rays are only accessible while the sun is directly overhead. Most people need to take vitamin D, especially seniors, as the ability to synthesize vitamin D in the skin declines with age.
With exposure to sunlight in the summer, the body can generate up to 20,000iu of vitamin D per hour with no ill effects. In addition, no adverse effects have been seen with supplemental vitamin D intakes up to 10,000 IU daily.
Vitamin D3 is not a vitamin at all but a necessary hormone that effects the immune system, bones & nearly every aspect of health. Having low Vitamin D levels greatly increases risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, MS & being deficient can create or greatly exacerbate health problems. Many researchers claim that optimized vitamin D levels are more effective than a flu shot in preventing viral infections.
Always take your vitamin D with a fat-containing meal to ensure absorption.
Some prescription vitamin D supplements are the wrong type (ergocalciferol – vitamin D2). As warned by the National Institute of Health -
Luckily you can buy vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) over the counter and the upper limits are extremely high. U.S. RDA are much too low. Current recommendations from researchers are for 35iu per pound – a 143# person needs minimum of 5000iu per day (which is for minimal needs and does not replenish depleted stores) & the rda is 600iu.
Research published by Grassroots Health from the D*Action study shows that 97.5% of the adult population needs to take 14,100iu’s of vitamin D per day in order to elevate their levels above 50ng/ml, which they believe is the best for disease prevention. Universal intake of up to 40,000 IU vitamin D per day is unlikely to result in vitamin D toxicity.
Your vitamin D level should never be below 32 ng/ml, and any levels below 20 ng/ml are considered serious deficiency states, increasing your risk of as many as 16 different cancers and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, just to name a few.
They found that the body does not reliably begin storing cholecalciferol in fat and muscle tissue until 25(OH)D levels get above 50 ng/ml (125 nmol/L). That is, at levels below 50 ng/ml (125 nmol/L), the body uses up vitamin D as fast as you can make it, or take it, indicating chronic substrate starvation—not a good thing. 25(OH)D levels should be between 50–80 ng/ml (125–200 nmol/L), year-round.
nausea headaches: Is there something seriously wrong with my health?
I have been feeling nauseous for the past five days. What could be wrong?
There has been a bug going around my school but it is where the kids get sick for a day, throw up tons and then they are better. I haven’t thrown up but for the past five days I have felt extremely nauseous like I’m going to throw up. The worst is at night and after I eat. What could be wrong? What can i do to fix it?
Answer by Thelooloobites
One possibility is that, your are skipping meals or not eating at the proper time and by proper time I mean the regular time you eat usually, So, if you have been skipping meals(not eating in the afternoon, then eating at night), one possibility is that the acid in your stomach tends to be more concentrated and when it does the pepsinogen would produce more pepsin, devouring your stomach causing you to feel nauseous and the taste of acid.
on the other hand if your not eating on time (skipping afternoon meals, then eating at night); that would cause acid reflux otherwise know as flatulence, more acid more hydrogen released, making you feel nauseous, momentarily. Then would soon fade.
Answer by Jillian Duncan
I have to ask (as Taylor is a unisex name); don’t take this the wrong way but could you be pregnant? i am really sorry if you are a fourteen year old guy or something but in case you are a girl, grinding nausea which is worse at a particular time of day (it doesn’t need to be the morning) can mean you are pregnant and should take a test. That out of the way, sickness bugs can affect people in different ways; I tend to spew over and over but my husband only once or twice, so you may have the bug although it seems unlikely. Also, some other viruses have an incubation period when the affected individual feels bad for a week or so before full-blown symptoms develop- for example chicken pox. Personally, I suffer from nausea because I have an ulcer and eating makes it worse as does lying down in bed. Do you have alot of heartburn/ indigestion, or a gnawing pain in the middle of your chest? Are you easily stressed out or under alot of pressure? if so the symptoms could be triggered by stress and although you may not necessarily have an ulcer you could simply have a nervous stomach. Finally, the mind plays weird tricks sometimes and when I was fifteen my mum had a baby and for the whole time she was in labor I felt sick and couldn’t eat, and this ceased as soon as the baby was born (even though I didn’t know the exact time as I was at home and only found out later), I am not suggesting this is happening to you or that you are nuts, just that if people around you are being sick maybe your symptoms are partly psychosomatic. At any rate, only a doctor can tell you. treatment for too much acid is alkaline liquids like Gaviscon or chalk tablets to be chewed. Alternatively, medicines are available that stop the stomach lining producing too much acid (‘proton-pump inhibitors’)- i don’t know if these are available over the counter where you come from. There are tablets available to treat nausea that a doctor can prescribe to you or you could try some travel sickness tablets as these contain anti-sickness drugs, but make sure you ask the pharmacist if they are safe for you. Good luck I know feeling sick is horrible, if you don’t want to take medicine, my doctor recommended ginger- so maybe ginger ale or ginger tea could relieve your symptoms.

Is prescription glasses made with the wrong prescription if they make you feel sick?
I’ve had my prescription glasses for over a year now, but they STILL keep making me feel motion sick and sometimes gives me headaches. They have a sort of wavy look as I turn my head left and right. Sure, they make the tv and computer screen clear, but they also cause me to feel nauseous. How the heck do people wear glasses 24/7 when I can barely handle wearing them while I’m on the computer?
Answer by Rellim
This is unhealthy. Your glasses could have been prescribed wrong or accidentally switched out at the eye doctor. Have you tried going back? Go see you doctor again, having wrongly prescribed glasses could harm your vision. Also, if you harmed your vision it could change your prescription(looking into extremely bright lights). Usually headaches are a result from strained vision.
Answer by Michael
You should have gone back after a week of this. Do you have a progressive lens? I also see this with people with a lot of astigmatism. They usually describe things as choppy.
Answer by CURIOUS
See *another* optician. Tell him your problems. Bring along the prescription glasses which make you nauseous and sometimes give you headaches. Don’t wear them.

Whats wrong with my insides, I’m desperate for advice, please?
For the last three months I have been going through this wierd “sickness”….it starts with quite a bit of gas, then I notice my bowel movements are looser and more frequent (2-3 times a day) and I usually get a little bit of nausea, mostly in the afternoon. My body feels like it has a cold, have aches and just feeling “off” a little. Then these “symptoms” taper off within a few days, bowel movements get pretty normal and I go about once a day and have less gas. I noticed all this started about three months ago when I was on antibiotics, clindaymycin, for an abscess tooth. The tooth was pulled and I didn’t end up finishing the antibiotics because I started feeling very ill. Now three months later, four doc and ER visits to be sure, I am told nothing is wrong with me. I have been able to go about my daily job and such but my body tells me its not 100% right like it used to be. Is it my insides or a re-ocurring viral infection?…Any advice or help would be a godsend, Thank you much

if you are under great stress it could be colitis, which is difficult to detect since it is of a nervous nature
Answer by Kate R
Sounds like bowel spasms or mild IBD. I found that having one of those “friendly bacteria” yoghurt drinks every morning really helped me in a similar condition. The antibiotics may have killed off your friendly bacteria, so if you take a probiotic it might put things right.
Answer by angel baby
you need more anti biotic just go to doctor and tell him/her to prescribe you there might be some of them that was still there inside you.
Answer by Robin B
Perhaps a referral from your regular doctor to a Gastrointestinal physician is in order. It sounds like irritable bowel.
Answer by mandaroc8806
i think you need to see your doctor….. Good luck!!
Answer by sharon
go for a second opiniun to another doctor after all if you dont bother no one else will . i think you should incase it is serious
Answer by Antonio V
Maybe you got irritable bowel syndrome now.
The antibiotics probably killed your good bacteria in your intestinal tract. There are some foods that help get that back. Like that one yogurt you eat for a certain number of weeks to get your system back to normal.
Reading a little bit more I think this would fit you better in relation to IBS.
Dientamoeba fragilis is a single-celled organism which produces abdominal pain and diarrhea. Studies have reported a high incidence of infection in developed countries, and symptoms of patients resolve following antibiotic treatment. One study reported on a large group of patients with IBS-like symptoms who were found to be infected with Dientamoeba fragilis, and experienced resolution of symptoms following treatment. Researchers have noted that methods used clinically may fail to detect some Dientamoeba fragilis infections.
Answer by wcanoodle
antibiotics can cause loose stools or even diarrhea…
Have you ever been tested for HIV/AIDs? Could also be irritable bowel syndome which runs in families and is linked to diet and stress. Or something else. Go to a gastroenterologist if it is bothering you that much.

It kinda sounds like meningitis get to the dr asap
Answer by Unknown
Coughin alot really upsets the chest muscles & ligaments and makes them sore.
Remember too that medications can irritate the stomach and intestines and cause it to produce gas; gas makes horrible chest pains quite often
If you have a sore throat, you may also experience a number of other symptoms that are associated with common infectious conditions, such as:
a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or over
a runny nose
Aching muscles could cause your leg pains the Dr will just look in your mouth and determine the problem.
Answer by Bill
It could also be pneumonia, if is is meningitis, here is a good link with info:
