, back to you.
kristen, thanks so much. kerry peterer son is an internist and contributor to women's health magazine. good morning.
. we don't have an explanation. we also have a statement by
saying i'm exhausted, just tired. a lot of things together including the bad news of the world. these are specific symptoms.
they are. i don't think exhaustion or fatigue will be the contributing factor to what she was experiencing or the etiology of her symptoms. nausea and
aren't related to fatigue.
the other tests seem to have ruled out other factors.
you have to think about life threatening things. was she having a
, an aortic rupture,
, infected gallbladder? these things can be ruled out quickly in the
. for women, intestinal discomfort and nausea can be a symptom of
. the classic
isn't necessarily one of the presenting factors for women. it was very important that she got care urgently.
that's an important point to make. most women don't realize that. her producer did confirm she had gone to the dentist for a
the day before. that wouldn't cause any sort of -- is there a reason to look at that as a potential cause?
not that i'm aware of. with certain oral procedures you can receive antibiotics and they can cause in some people
like intestinal upset, gas, bloating. if she received antibiotics that may have been the reason she was experiencing the symptoms. if it was just a
you usually don't reformation, so unlikely.
it sounds like a lot of the tests, probably not all of them have come back. it sounds like an ongoing story in terms of her effort to find out what caused her to feel so badly.
they did an ekg,
, chest x-ray. they can rule out many of the life threatening things that could have occurred. if it showed nothing some things you think about is could it have been a run of the mill stomach bug and now she may have symptoms down the road but more mild.
we wish her the best. thank you for helping us this morning.
