I forgot to mention that they do provide pain management at this hospital in drug form ( there is a list you can chose from - <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> being one option but not sure about the rest.. think another was morphine. Just something to take the edge off ) well before they would even come close to giving someone epidural. 1 of my friends just had her son 3 weeks ago and she said she was only in labour 3 hours and had no drugs at all.
I dring about 8 glasses of water a day, but still have alot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> pain. Is this normal? Also, since I take fish oil every day (GNC brand - 900 mg), should I still put flax seeds in my diet? Do I need both? If not, which is better to fight cholesterol? Your help will be greatly appreciated! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/630844'>Cholesterol numbers – different for women?</a>.
I am not sure whether the A/Fib is causing the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>/bloating and the asthma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>attack</span> or the other way around. Another interesting symptom that happened to me was when I went to the ER with an A/Fib event. It took them 14 hours to gain control of my heart rythym. I had to urinate a lot. I'm talking quarts. I found it surprising to me that the doctors did not know why, for I know it was related to the A/Fib event. Most Doctors are not scientists, nor do they have the time to be.
I lost 20 lbs which is great but now it seems like I'm more sensitive to certain foods causing stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>. I just recently linked my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> palps to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>/indigestion! I can predict when they are coming just by what I feel or hear from my stomach. I had a really scary episode last week that landed me back in the ER. I felt like my heart stopped- scared me to death so we went in. They hooked me up to the EKG for an hour or so and the heart palps happened while I was being monitored.
My chest pain is subsiding throat is sore still. I too was on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> monitor/blackberry ACT sensor for 21 days prior to procedure. It would be nice to have it on for a few weeks post surgery to see what is going on. FYI I was on the flourescope for 99 minutes during the 11 hour ablation and ep study and my ep stated that I will have a radiation burn on my back in approx 4-6 weeks. Oh well. During 11 hours, I am certain he ablated everything that he felt was a problem.
I have constant chest pains accompanied with arm pain and left breast pain. I am afraid that I am having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>attack</span> at times. I am so afraid that I even put 911 on my quick dial key from my cellphone. I get stressed out a lot. I have been stressed even more lately especially considering that I just lost my grandmother to lung cancer. She passed away August 2, 2010. I was very close to her and I feel a lot of sadness because she is gone. I often wonder if that sadness has intensified my pain.
over the past few months i have been having pain and swelling from the knees down. my ankles and the top of my feet ache & swell. it started with numbness & tingling in my right calf. then the swelling & pain started. has anyone had this problem? and do you think its due to tx? thank you so much.
However, every 3-5 weeks I will have intense pain in my stomach while playing, which becomes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, which can sometimes even become diarrhea. The pain quickly disappears when I sit down as long as it has not reached the gas or diarrhea stage, and the stomach pain is more sever the more strenuous my movements. I doubt doubt its dehydration since I make sure to drink plenty of water. The pain feels more like my stomach is empty than that I am still digesting food I recently ate.
I am so sorry to hear about your attacks of sudden severe chest pain. The obvious first thought is cardiac. The pain doesn't have to be exactly over your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> or on the left side.....however drinking cold water should not relieve cardiac symptoms. If anything it should make it worse. But I am far from an expert. So I cannot say for certain that it is not cardiac. It's possible it is a gastrointestinal problem.
Since the removal of the stent, I have had waves of severe back pain similar to the initial pain I had when I discovered the stone. I heard the ureter can spasm as it heals and this blocks the urine flow in the kidney causing the pain. How long should this last? What is the best way of managing the pain?
I just can't believe this. I was thinking how in the world can I have a THREE year old with back pain? MY first thought was urinary tract infections...since as a child I had them myself. Since I was alarmed, I went to the doc soon after complaints..again in CAR SEAT ..I do not have the one you all have in common..its just a Graco..but mu poor son screams every time he get in there "my back hurts!' It breaks my heart to see him in pain that I can do nothing about.
Perscribed Nitroglycerin for the pain and told me to take 2 Nexium vs. 1 for 30 days. He told me he would get back to me if anything else showed up in the tests. Blood tests 5/1 MTI 5/6. To date I have not heard a word from my gastro. Doc. However; my GP(also received copies of all tests) called yesterday and asked if I was taking any kind of iron pill or suppliment; I am not.What's that about?
Due to surgery, I was not sure of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> pain or ??? At my post op doc said pain was not related to surgery, too high, etc. I had an abdominal/gall bladder ultrasound yesterday and do not yet know the results... except the technician said "no gallstones". I should have been happy.. but I need an answer! Everyone thinks the timing is odd and related to surgery....
i tried taking Tylenol at first thinking i may have pulled a muscle or worse maybe it could have been my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span>. i tried laying down the pain seem to get worse so i ended up sleeping in a Recliner. i wasn't Evan able to obtain a long amounts of sleep maybe 30mins to 1hr at a time, once 8am came around i couldn't take the pain any longer, and decided it would all get dealt with faster in the Er than at a Dr office.
Pain under the left shoulder blade can be a signal that there is a problem with the stomach or other abdominal structures (ulcers, pancreatitis, ectopic pregnancy) or in the chest (myocardial infarction [<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>attack</span>], pericarditis, pleuritis, pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, aortic dissection)." Has anyone been given a diagnosis related to internal organs are opposed to muscular pain?
He had a childhood injury to this knee, then another operation 13 years ago but is crying with the pain most of the time and has gone from ordinary pain killers to needing morphine. He has physiotherapy 3 times per week, also hydrotherapy and acupuncture, they all say he is making some progress but very slowly and keep telling him exercising will relieve the pain.
I am unable to find out whether the pain is due to blockage or due to some other reason (acidity, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, low bp). But this pain worries me since my MI in 2007 which left me with EF of 30-35%, an ICD, LAD stented, LCx 100% blocked and some other blocks in minor arteries. The reason for my MI was also throat pain but in different area of throat. Because of this throat pain I live in fear of next heart attack. I think I may not survive it due to my low EF.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnea can lead to chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>attack</span> and stroke. Knowing all these benefits of breathing through your nose, however, doesn’t help much if you don’t know why you’re not able to do so. To stop mouth breathing, the first thing you must do is to figure out what’s blocking up your nose. What Can Stop Up Your Nose Nasal congestion is something everyone experiences now and again.

Be cautious but don't label yourself until you understand addiction vs dependant and uncontrolled pain. There is a big difference. But again be cautious. You've learned a valuable lesson. Taking more does not usually mean better pain control, especially if you are not on the right pain medication. You can be addicted and still be a chronic pain sufferer. Unfortunately it can happen on occasion. Good luck to you and please keep in touch.
Then the person goes to the ER with continuous pain. Is this continuous angina pain then a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>attack</span>? What are mortality expectations due to fatal heart attacks for a group of angina sufferers vs a similar aged group of non-sufferers? How do angina patients manage what for some must be enormous difficulty with panic/anxiety attacks? Just curious.
Severe anemia can cause fainting, dizziness, angina, chest pain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>attack</span>. All these conditions are treatable if caught early enough, but all can be very detrimental, if left untreated. So PLEASE DON'T WAIT any longer to SEE YOUR DOCTOR. I Hope This Helps. Please Keep Me Posted. Good Luck and God Bless.
I have never heard of any conditions that have the symptoms of pauses, skips and thuds. For example. chest pain. It could be from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span>, muscles pulls, Or in the worst case scenario it can be angina . But what is the worse case scenario for feeling skipped heartbeats? MVP? enlarged heart? Are people with these heart conditions more prone to "feel" pvcs? So then is there a difference between feeling and not feeling them? I hope these questions dont sound absurd.
I have had SVTs & PVCs since the 80's, I am 29 yr old F, have gone to ER many times for SVT/ doc put me on Toprol XL 50 mg., I started meds 1/30/04 (I waited so long because I was more afraid of the meds than condition until recently when 1) I learned SVT can lead to clotting & 2) I started suffering horrible chest pain w/them). (Noraml echo.) I've had more problems ever w/the meds, I am very sensative to meds.
No food for me - just water so I don't get dehydrated. Even that isn't going down too well. I've got plenty of pain and nausea meds on hand, but when I get this bad nothing helps. I know exactly what is going on. Some section of small intestine is twisted around scar tissue and I've got a partial small bowel obstruction. Before someone jumps all over me that I need to be in a hospital, let me say that I'm doing exactly what they would do.
Jeez - who wouldn't be anxious when it feels as close as they can tell that they are having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>attack</span>!! Please remember that these things are not fatal - I know that it is hard, but I have been there and I am able to participate in this forum now...another thing that occurred to me - it might be a mistake to think that you can taper by decreasing doses by 1/2 the amount........ that is probably too much of a drop to not notice physiologically.
It is too early to tell, but it did relieve the symptoms that time at released some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gas</span> pressure from between the diaphragm and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span>. I suspect that somehow this pressure starts a spasm in the vascular system that carries up to the heart resulting in a-fib. Once it starts, it takes 18 to 24 hours to stop. It seems that most cardiology experts dismiss this as anecdotal. From a lay person with a 10 year history, this seem like tunnel vision.
