Instructions: Read the next situations and pay attention to the words in red. Good morning doctor!, I have a terrible back pain. Let me see. It may be indicative of a back strain or Probably your spinal could be damaged cause a big effort.
It may be indicative of lack of enzymes and such as HCL ( hydrochloric acid) Yesterday I started with vomiting and indigestion I feel so terrible, doctor. I feel so bad. I have a terrible abdominal pain. Probably, you have appendicitis or It could be food poisoning. What did you eat yesterday?
Illnesses and Symptoms IllnessesSigns and Symptoms AppendicitisPain first, vomiting next and fever last has been described as the classic presentation of acute appendicitis. Pain starts mid-abdomen, and except in children below 3 years, tends to localize in the right iliac fossa in a few hours. This pain can be elicited through various signs and can be severe. Signs include localized findings in the right iliac fossa. The abdominal wall becomes very sensitive to gentle pressure (palpation). Also, there is severe pain on sudden release of deep pressure in the lower abdomen (rebound tenderness). In case of a retrocecal appendix, however, even deep pressure in the right lower quadrant may fail to elicit tenderness (silent appendix), the reason being that the cecum, distended with gas, prevents the pressure exerted by the palpating hand from reaching the inflamed appendix. Similarly, if the appendix lies entirely within the pelvis, there is usually complete absence of abdominal rigidity. In such cases, a digital rectal examination elicits tenderness in the rectovesical pouch. Coughing causes point tenderness in this area and this is the least painful way to localize the inflamed appendix. If the abdomen on palpation is also involuntarily guarded (rigid), there should be a strong suspicion of peritonitis, requiring urgent surgical intervention.
IllnessesSigns and Symptoms Food AllergiesClassic immunoglobulin-E -mediated food allergies are classified as type-I immediate Hypersensitivity reaction. These allergic reactions have an acute onset (from seconds to one hour) and may include: Hives, Itching of mouth, lips, tongue, throat, eyes, skin, or else areas, Swelling (angioedema) of lips, tongue, eyelids, or the whole face, Difficulty swallowing, Runny or congested nose, Hoarse voice, Wheezing and/or shortness of breath, Nausea, Vomiting, Abdominal pain and/or stomach cramps, Lightheadedness, Fainting, Symptoms of allergies vary from person to person. The amount of food needed to trigger a reaction also varies from person to person. PneumoniaPeople with infectious pneumonia often have a productive cough, fever accompanied by shaking chills, shortness of breath, sharp or stabbing chest pain during deep breaths, confusion, and an increased respiratory rate. In the elderly, confusion may be the most prominent symptom. The typical symptoms in children under five are fever, cough, and fast or difficult breathing. Fever, however, is not very specific, as it occurs in many other common illnesses, and may be absent in those with severe disease or malnutrition. In addition, a cough is frequently absent in children less than 2 months old. More severe symptoms may include: central cyanosis, decreased thirst, convulsions, persistent vomiting, or a decreased level of consciousness.
