Common Questions and Answers about Allergies or heart attack


676912 tn?1332816151 Sodium chloride can lead to high blood pressure, kidney failure, stroke and heart attack. Such problems are why some doctors are now saying it is better to have a soda with sugar than a diet soda with additives. It is being increasingly recognized that for the best long-term health and minimal risks of developing health issues from food additives and preservatives, you should eat as little as possible of such foods. Look at the ingredients and try to buy those that are the most natural.
Avatar n tn 8. These back to normal @ 24 hr. I realize I still had a heart attack regardless and I am pursing all that entails, taking meds, changing lifestyle & eating habits and starting cardiac rehab. Please see my comment post following for my questions, sorry just couldn't get it all in!
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if allergies can cause an irregular heart beat? I have been having an irregular heart beat for several months. It usually happens in the evening after dinner. Many nights I go to bed with a heart beat that keeps me awake. When I wake up it has stopped and I feel fine. I have been to the doctor and had an ekg and an electrocardiogram and everything looks normal. I have noticed in the past if I am exposed to a strong perfume or strong candle my heart will pound.
404138 tn?1308945256 Another thing to consider is congestive heart failure or any other condition that might lead to fluid retention and restrict breathing. If your dog exhibits symptoms intermittently, do you have a digital camera capable of taking short videos? That will help your vet determine a proper diagnosis. There's no point in self-medicating until the underlying problem is diagnosed.
1481758 tn?1287642243 Hello the problem can be with your digestive system, your liver-cirrhosis or hepatitis, heart disease, or kidney problems. Ammonia forms when protein is broken down naturally by bacteria in the body. It can be treated with diuretics-fluid pills, but the easiest way to lower the levels is to start drinking more water. The more water in, the more urine made, and the more ammonia excreted out-unless you have kidney issues. Recommended amount of water per day is 8- 8 ounces glasses.
Avatar n tn While on it I can eat anything and not get any indigestion or heart burn or reflux in my throat. However, occasionally I would still get the feeling of something in my throat at the base of it. Well, it would usually go away and I would forget about it. However, about three weeks ago this feeling came back and for the last few weeks I have also had chest pains associated with it. The feeling in my throat is like someone is pushing in on the base of my throat under my adam's apple.
Avatar n tn I was on crack for a while but stopped when it made me feel like i was dyin after the smallest amounts. 1 hit would make me think i was havin a heart attack. i was dumb then tho and would just keep smokin. it started gettin worst so finally i just stopped. now i think it was probably panic attacks tho. Anyway cocaine in any form is the crappiest drug out there.
Avatar f tn Hello, Panic attack can be triggered by difficulty in breathing caused by allergies in your case. During a panic attack, breathe slowly through the nose using the diaphragm and abdomen. Do not breathe through the mouth. Talk with a supportive person if you are feeling stressed or anxious. Also get yourself evaluated for diabetes, thyroid disorders and heart valve disorders. Also take vit B supplements for some days. It might help. If the symptoms persist then please consult a physician.
716924 tn?1235873079 ) All these things started about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks ago. I had a family member die of a heart attack at the age of 48. He was pushing the limits of the body with depression and smokes way to much. So I know this was a time bomb waiting to happen. So when these things started to happen to me i tryed to just rub it off as a Panic or Anxity disorder of some sort. Well as the above symptoms continued I looked into it a bit further. I went to the doctor and he ran a EKG and saw nothing out of place.
784382 tn?1376934640 it can be due to high blood pressure, low blood pressure including bleeding disorders causing anemia, heart diseases like arrhythmias, attack, cardiomyopathy, medications like blood pressure drugs , antidepressants, metabolic disorders like hypoxia, hypoglycemia, dehydration. in women, internal bleeding or hemorrhage, anemia, infections, endocrine disease like thyroid, pituitary gland and adrenals, allergies may cause wheezing, low blood pressure, can trigger sinusitis and resulting dizziness.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if this could be related to allergies, asthma, or lung disease?
Avatar n tn The main component of Plavix is Clopidogrel, usually used in prevention of atherothrombotic events in stroke, heart attack, or peripheral arterial diseases. The usual dose is 75 mg daily with or without food. This is rapidly absorbed and concentrations in the blood are very low beyond 2 hrs and is extensively metabolized by the liver . The usual allergic reactions are found in the Gastrointestinal system such as diarrhea, abdominal pain or dyspepsia.
Avatar f tn My husband is in the military, and we might have to request to move back to the southwest so the Allergies I have will hopefully minimize. My fear now is this is permanent no matter where I go. I just feel I need to get out of South Carolina. It feels like no one understands what I am going through, and it has caused me to have anxiety. My husband is frustrated, because when I have the anaphylactic shocks, or severe allergy attacks I can't seem to function.
Avatar n tn The comforting thing is that I'm not alone but the sad thing is that I haven't found an allergist, GP or GYN who seems to know anything about this or have had other patients with the same thing so you get the attitude of "I don't know what to do with you. Take this pill and see if it helps." Best of luck to you and I hope you are able to find a way to control these episodes.
Avatar f tn So, yes, you would panic if you can't get your breath, your heart rate soars (or drops) etc. Makes sense. But what you need to do here is spend some time with the allergist, if you haven't already, to deinitely pin down pork -and anything else- that could be the issue. For example, because nitrates are often used to process pork, THEY may be the culprit. Point is, pin it down.
Avatar n tn All my tests came back negative. No heart attack, no stroke, no other reason for the heart palps so they diagnosed me with A-fib & gave me a prescription for flecainide. I don't like the meds as they make me feel disoriented and depressed. I told the doctor I felt it was allergies but he said that was unlikely. Yet he has no clear reason why I'm having these PVCs. I have difficulty breathing when it's humid or right after a rain.
Avatar f tn Then 2 yrs later pain started so much so I thought I was having a heart attack - then was diagnosed with gallstones and consequestly had my gall bladder removed. The pathologist said it was the worse case he had ever seen in someone of my age. My skin condition continued until I got so depressed I was sent to the allergy clinic. I had 'floating stools' (sorry for the detail) and have always suffered with IBS and bloating ans occasional episodes of diarrhea.
Avatar n tn The bacteria responsible for GERD, heart burn, acid reflux etc called Helocobacter Pylori or H pylori can also cause hives. Antibiotics given to clear up the bacteria also take care of the hives. I would strongly recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system). A number of times autoimmune components are associated like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hence you must get your thyroid function too tested along with the thyroid antibody test.
Avatar n tn I have not given her any treatment b/c I found that if I can get her to calm her breathing during an attack, she can begin breathing on her own. She had an attack while at the drs. Could this be VCD or severe asthma?
Avatar n tn One which triggered the attack. It was a flushing feeling in my head asthough i was shy or embarresed(i get these often as flushing is a common anxiety symptom) it then dramatically increased and felt like my head was going to explode. The pressure was immesne and it felt asthough my temples we`re holding in litres of blood trying their upmost not to explode, then it calmed down and the usual pani attack symptoms follwed i.e sweating, dizziness, breathing difficulties etc.
Avatar f tn With all that being said, I have had something happen twice in the last month that I would not consider to be a regular panic attack or anything I've ever experienced. The first time, I was running late for a funeral and did not eat breakfast. I ended up missing lunch as well, then I went to run errands. It was around 4pm. I stepped out of my car and got the most excruciating pain in my abdomen (more in the upper region just below my chest).
737752 tn?1238257272 Man I had a horrible anxiety attack this morning. I woke up at 8AM and the second I opened my eyes I felt extremely anxious. Butt cheek and leg twitching, cold and hot flashes, disoriented, everything. I sat up and went into my bathroom and took an Advil because I also had a headache. Long story short I couldn't talk myself out of the attack and it was horrible.
Avatar m tn It's funny you mention having too low HCL as sometimes when I'm suffering stomach problems and tums isn't working, I'll drink some OJ and it seems to do the trick, staving off a panic attack. So it seems to be too much acid one day and not enough the other...or it's just something all together different that I don't know about. Before I had my first 'break down' I lifted weights 5 times a day and rode my bicycle up to 80miles a day.
11226342 tn?1416361698 Sometimes I feel as if I am unable to inhale enough air, but only slightly, and this does not happen to often anymore. Also, often I feel as if my heart is beating fast or very erratically, but when feeling the pulse from my wrist, it seems slower and steady. This is really disturbing my life. It has been going on for months, and I still don't know what it is.
Avatar f tn he had some foam in mouth. Could this possibly be asthma or allergies...They keep reoccuring during certain times.
Avatar n tn They have lowered his dose of blood thinner and just keep an eye on him to make sure no more clots form (which over the last two years they form again in his legs and they get rid of them only to return). Now he just had a massive heart attack in the last 2 months. He's only 48, no cholesteral problems, but I guess he had plaque build up in an artery. If these two medical problems can be linked it would be interesting to know.
Avatar m tn No regurgitation or stuck food or inability to pass food or liquids. This was accompanied with chest pain, back pain, abdominal pain and slow digestion (occasional constipation) I had a few episodes that felt like I was having a heart attack (chest pain, difficulty swallowing, feeling of intense fullness and anxiety) - on one occasion I went to the 24hr emergency care.
Avatar n tn On some anxiety forums I went to, I saw a LOT of people who said their anxiety started with sinus infections and allergies. Doctors apparently either don't understand it enough or don't think it's very serious, while those of us who are living with it KNOW how bad it is. The prednisone sounds like a good idea, I think I'm going to try and find an ENT and skip my GP for now.
