Avatar f tn I am 35 and I have been experiencing a rapid heart rate after I eat. I also get a warm sensation in my stomach and I feel like I have to go to sleep immediately after I eat. My heart begins to race and while I'm sleeping my arm goes is not "prickly" like it is asleep it is just numb. When I get up and walk around after I wake up the numbness goes away. I just feel terrible after I eat. Otherwise, I feel fine. What could be causing this?????
Avatar n tn I always have worse heart symptoms in the spring and fall, and I just recently noticed that the days that my husband complained most about his allergies were also the days that my heart seemed to be acting worse. Has anyone else here noticed that connection too? I don't get the typical watery eyes, etc that you would expect from an allergy. But it does seem strange that my symptoms seem to be worse on high pollen days.
Avatar f tn I just want to be normal again, and be active with my family. It breaks my heart my kids are seeing me like this, because I have always been active and on the go. Now, I don't even want to leave the house, and I don't want my kids to come home and ask me if I am ok to go outside so they can play. Thanks for allowing me to vent!
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Meniere's but the medicine Meclizine does not hep me at all, when I am having major vertigo I have to take valuim. This is the only medicine that will work for my vertigo. Thank God I have not had to take any for over a year now because I have found that I have allergies. I get 3 shots a week and this has helped (along with prayer) to take away my vertigo. Have you been checked for allergies? I would have never knew I was that bad with allergies until I was tested.
Avatar n tn Can heart problems be the cause of other health issues? I’ve suffered from all sorts of nuisance problems with my heart, SVT’s, PVC's, Heart murmur, pericarditis and so on and every since I was diagnosed with these over 13 yrs ago, I’ve had nothing but health problems. Any late nights cause me to get flu-like symptoms, I get tonsillitis and sore throats every other month and it doesn’t mater how many vitamins I take, I still suffer from poor health.
865758 tn?1285952904 I have severe allergies requiring 9 allergy shots weekly and I noticed that on the days when my allergies are really bad my heart rate increases. I have had all the cardiac workup and other than showing periods of sinus tachycardia my heart is fine. Could allergies be doing this?
483397 tn?1208458504 I do have PVC's and allergies. Every year May and June I have PVC's, Making me feel light headed and Short of Breath at times.I hate the feeling of PVC's. I do not take allergy medication until I can't take it any more. I do take a beta Blocker 2 times a day. I am also a nurse so I know not to take any antihistimines because of the PVC's and PACs Mine is usually triggered by fire ant bites. Knowing this I try to avoid them but this year I have had a couple of bites.
Avatar f tn In addition to allergies, eosinophil can be a sign of inflammation and/or infection. Were you sick just before or when you had your blood tested? Do you have allergies? High inflammation levels? I've had high eos levels for a decade now, although the percentage varies depending on what else is going on in my life. None of my docs has been intensely concerned about it, although my immunologist was most curious about it.
Avatar m tn My daugher is 13 years old and has had the following bloodwork and symptoms: Low WBC 2.8 (for over 4 months); Positive ANA 1:1280; Positive Chromatin 1.8; rashes; fatigue; aching, allergies and acne. I've been told by one doctor that she has some sort of auto immune disease, but doesn't think it's SLE because she tested negative for anti-DNA test, an anti-SM test and an anti-RNP. While another said it could possibly be SLE.
231441 tn?1333892766 Lately I have been having frequent violent sneezing (many times a day), with intermittent running nose and itchy face and trunk. The sneezing and running nose also wake me in the middle of the night, and I have to keep blowing my nose for a while before it settles and I can sleep again. I haven't yet been able to identify clear cause or food trigger (other than peanuts, which recently have started to clearly cause an itch and burning/flushing reaction).
Avatar f tn Does Hashimoto's put me at risk for gluten sensitivity and other food allergies?
Avatar m tn My mother is 81 and she has them occasionally along with some other type of problem such as WPW, bundle branch block, rapaid heart beat, and one other that I can't remember. She is still physically active so I guess we will all be ok too.
Avatar f tn t know if I should push for heart related help(heart disease??) or if I should just attribute it to COPD/ashthma/daily allergies from pets/dirt in my house/dander. Or should I just continue on my thyroid medicine and also get help for my allergies/asthma? My daily inhaler doses are not working and I feel just miserable with all this coughing. I want to live my life and not worry about my health anymore.
Avatar f tn Are Graves Disease and allergy shots compatible? I've had RAI and am on Synthroid. My seasonal allergies (as well as dust mitea, etc.) are very bad. I understand that allergies are also a type of autoimmune disease in itself. Elaine Moore tends to believe that immunotherapy (allergy shots) makes Graves Disease worse, and can possibly bring on the Graves Eye Disease.
Avatar n tn Nut and milk allergy are very common. The protein component is very similar and hence the two allergies are often found together. Many a times an allergy starts in reaction to heat or cold. You probably also have cholinergic urticaria. Exercise, hot baths, tight clothes, spicy food, emotional stress and fever can all cause this. Once this is identified, avoiding the reason can take care of the problem. Sometimes rapid cooling of the body can prevent an attack. Antihistamines also help.
Avatar f tn Your cat may be on the wrong diet, be very obese, may have food allergies, or an endocrine disorder, kidney disease or more. When a cat stops grooming it can be almost anything even heart disease, since it is a very subtle sign of something that is not quite right. What kind of diet is your cat on? Before going to the vet you can try the following: Please place her on an all canned diet such as Evo/Innovo, Wellness grain free, Natures Wellness-Instinct, and others.
Avatar f tn Other possibilities are collapsing trachea, heart disease and allergies. Benadryl can be tried at 1 mg per pound. The average Shih Tzu would require a 12.5 mg. tablet up to 4 times per day. Kennel cough may require antibiotics and cough medicine, if severe. Evaluation of heart disease requires chest X-Rays, ECG, and echocardiogram; and once diagnosed, may require cardiac medications, co-enzyme Q-10, and Hawthorne berry supplements.
Avatar m tn I do not suspect heart disease, and certainly not heart failure at your age and in this case. With your old EF at 65, even with PACs, your EF is probably still within perfect range for you. Right now what I am thinking is if you have ever had a pulmonary workup done. Have you ever had a test for asthma? You may have a mild case. This is a simple test that can be done at a regular doctor visit. Allergies can also affect breathing.
