My daughter was diagnosed with the flu, and no pharmacy seemed to have the medicine she needed. The staff called around until they found a pharmacy with Tamiflu. Thank you so much!!! I really really appreciate the extra mile and will recommend Paramount to all my friends.

Could Your Nausea Be a Sign of Pregnancy?

If you’re actively trying to become pregnant, you’re probably monitoring yourself very carefully for the earlysigns of pregnancy. Nausea, often called morning sickness during pregnancy, is one of the most recognizable and common signs of pregnancy. If you think you could be pregnant, you can go to an urgent care center that has an onsite lab. A urine test can confirm your status, and the doctor can review your medications to ensure they are safe for use during pregnancy.

The Onset of Pregnancy Symptoms

Every woman is a little different. Some feel different within a couple of weeks of conception, while others are a few months into gestation before they experience any of the classic pregnancy symptoms. In most cases, nausea will first develop between two and eight weeks after conceiving. Throughout a woman’s pregnancy, some symptoms may resolve and new symptoms can develop because of the various changes the body goes through. For instance, nausea often resolves after the first trimester, although some women experience it for nine months.

Types of Pregnancy Symptoms

Because nausea during pregnancy is often referred to as morning sickness, women might not always recognize it as being indicative of pregnancy if it occurs at other times. But actually,morning sickness can occur any time of the day. In addition to nausea and missed periods, pregnancy often results in these symptoms:

  • Fatigue

  • Swollen or tender breasts

  • Headaches

  • Backaches

  • Frequent urination

  • Mood swings

  • Food cravings

  • Food aversions

Management of Nausea During Pregnancy

Nausea during pregnancy won’t necessarily result in vomiting. But if you do find it difficult to keep fluids down, you may need urgent care to prevent or treat dehydration. Avoid taking any medications during pregnancy unless they have been approved by your doctor. The following tips may help you manage nausea.

  • Eat smaller, but more frequent meals

  • Choose bland foods that lack odors

  • Eat a couple of soda crackers when nausea occurs

  • Get some fresh air

What Is a Complete Metabolic Panel?

A comprehensive or complete metabolic panel (CMP) is a group of 14 lab tests. Urgent care doctors may request a CMP when they suspect a patient has a particular medical condition, such as one that affects the liver or kidneys. It can also be performed as part of a yearly physical exam. CMPs help the doctor evaluate many factors of a person’s health, such as electrolyte balance, blood glucose level, and blood protein level.

Complete metabolic panels are blood tests. Some patients are asked to fast for 12 hours prior to having their blood drawn. However, this isn’t possible when a CMP is being done at an urgent care visit. If any of the results on the CMP is abnormal, this could potentially indicate problems like diabetes complications, liver disease, kidney failure, or breathing problems.

Complete metabolic panels are one of the manyonsite tests we can perform here at Paramount Urgent Care. For more information about our medical services in Orlando, please visitwww.paramounturgentcare.com.

When to Seek Urgent Care for Digestive Issues

Manydigestive issues are mild and temporary, such as fleeting indigestion or stomach cramps. But if your symptoms are severe or don’t resolve quickly, it’s a good idea to seek urgent care. At the clinic, tell the doctor exactly what type of symptoms you’re having, how long they’ve lasted, and whether they might have been brought on by anything in particular, such as eating undercooked food. Your detailed answers will help the urgent care doctor get to the bottom of the problem quickly.

When You Can’t Keep Fluids Down

Diarrhea and vomiting can potentially lead to dehydration, especially if the patient is elderly or a young child. If you’re experiencing these problems, and you can’t seem to keep fluids in your stomach, it’s time to seek urgent care. Some of the potential signs of dehydration can include the following:

  • Dry mouth
  • Sleepiness or tiredness
  • Little to no urine output
  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Headache
  • Dry skin

When Your Stomach Pain Is Severe

A little mild cramping is usually not a red flag, but the sudden onset of severe stomach pain is. Have someone take you to urgent care. Severe stomach pain can be caused by:

  • Food poisoning
  • Gallstones
  • Cholecystitis
  • Diverticulitis
  • Kidney stones

Kidney stones are particularly common in people who live in warm climates, like Florida. Dehydration and obesity can increase the risk. The pain of kidney stones is often described as more intense than childbirth. In addition to abdominal pain, patients with kidney stones may have nausea, vomiting, pink or red urine, and painful urination.

When It Might Be a Bowel Obstruction

An intestinal obstruction is another reason to seek emergency care for abdominal pain. Patients with this condition are unable to pass any solids or liquids through the colon. If left untreated,bowel obstructions can result in tissue death, perforation of the intestinal wall, and severe, life-threatening infection. In addition to abdominal pain, a bowel obstruction can result in:

  • Constipation
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Abdominal swelling
