Avatar m tn I check my symptoms in the internet and found that are related to an abdominal aorta aneurysm or a peripheral arterial disease in the legs and I was very worried. However I exclude the second since i can run and exercise quite intensely without any annoyance in my legs.

Avatar m tn Please do a search under the following : "Πρόγραμμα ελέγχου και εκρίζωσης της βρουκέλλωσης των αιγών και των προβάτων" Underground commerce is prevalent in most parts of the country (I'm in Greece presently), so programs such as the one in the above article, can be implemented satisfactorily only on "legitimate" cattle operations. This may leave a small number of consumers of dairy and meat products (goat and sheep) vulnerable to Brucellosis.
Avatar m tn I am thinking of going to another cardiologist (there are loads in Greece, easier to find than a plumber) - who speaks English instead of me speaking Greek. Doing the tests again and asking if there's any way they can allow me a few months to get my act together (if I don't have anything life threatening) and then take meds if still needed. Please any opinions, advice greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn 180) with good ration of good/bad cholesterol, absence of any heart disease in both paternal and maternal parents and grandparents and very good results especially in the stress echo reassured him that I DID NOT NEED a treadmill test for now. He also told me that, with hypertensive patients, one is more likely to receive a false positive result, that would subject me to unnecessary extra tests. I would appreciate your experienced take on my case.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone..I am from Greece but i've moved to America for work about 2 years ago. I've had a girlfriend for about 8 months and she is 21 years old, from Lebanon and is still a virgin..We both want to have sex. She knows i have HEP C.
Avatar m tn As this site is based in the US and so am I, it is hard for me to know doctors in Greece, but some of the lists have doctors in many countries and I know at least an endo in Greece - who used to work at the NIH here. Cushing's at this time is treated with surgery so Minakashi, you have a prolactinoma which will respond nicely to medication - Cushing's does not respond to medications very well currently. They had a few in trial here but most are temporary.
Avatar f tn I am in Greece and I am helping a friend whos mother has been diagnosed with probable ALS. There is absolutely no help for this disease in this country and unfortunately you are diagnosed and sent on your way to wait for the inevitable. The only advice is ''Get physical therapy and phsychiatric help''..
Avatar f tn The dentist drives me nuts. I am probably sensitive to everything that goes in my mouth, but it has to get done. I am totally afraid of him, but have had almost every procedure done sad to say, so I shouldn't worry about it, but I still do.
Avatar n tn I just wonder if a clinical biochemist can conduct HIV tests, because in Greece the vast majority of blood tests in private Labs are done by microbiologists.

5948831 tn?1377198400 Hi, your symptoms of dizziness could be due to postural hypotension, a condition in which the peripheral arteries dilate, leading to pooling of blood in the peripheries. This in effect causes decreased circulation of blood resulting in dizziness/lightheadedness. This is more pronounced if the person stands up from a lying down position. This is detected by recording the blood pressure recordings in the sitting, standing and lying down positions.
Avatar f tn Normal pulmonary pressure is 15-30. So in theory, you could be classed as hypertensive in the pulmonary system, but not by much at all. Leaks that are trivial and mild are of no real concern. From the report stating that your right atrium and ventricle have reduced in size, I am thinking that they are just back to normal due to past higher hypertension. Yes they can return to a normal size again. Hearts are good at adapting in either direction, so long as the source of the problem is removed.
Avatar n tn I had just visited to a cordiologist for my heart problems..He assured me that i dont have any problem in my heart..then what about those eco test i had done six months back..how can i believe n to whom i should belive..i still feel the pain in chest n breathing problem is reduced but it happens sumtime when i get tired while doing minor household works..
2086874 tn?1332686494 I ws watching TV one evening and without any warning or symptoms I lost the vision in my right eye. It was plaque in the artery and is not reversible. A few months later though I had some flashes of light and lost the peripheral vision in that eye. (In the beginning it was just the vision in the top portion of my eye. I know it sounds weird, but different areas of the retina see different angles.) Did your vision return?
Avatar f tn Take care, Ken arrhythmias, especially when heart disease is present. In some patients, VEBs are triggered by the same mechanism that gives rise to ventricular tachycardia which can be cured with catheter ablation. In addition, there are recent reports on the use of catheter Ventricular ectopic beats (VEBs) are commonly seen in daily clinical practice. They are largely asymptomatic but can cause upsetting symptoms in some patients. .
Avatar m tn Well, tomorrow the day and we will find out if I have some severely narrowed or obstructed heart arteries/vessels which did not appear in a Heart Cath back in June 2009. The worst narrowing found back then was an 80% occlusion or narrowing in a diagonal. Stenting was deferred.
Avatar f tn t ever know we have heart disease. When his small vessel blocks, which can take many years, or months (nobody can estimate it) then 2 things could happen. He could develop collaterals, but unlikely if they aren't forming already with chest pain. The other outcome will be that heart muscle be suffocated and die in that area and will be unable to give pain.
Avatar n tn Did he attend any cardiac rehab classes? Those can be quite helpful in helping a heart patient (whether heart attack or surgery) regain the confidence they need to live life fully again. Some people have a lingering fear that if they do too much activity, even sexual, that they may damage their heart. Or they feel some depression that they're not "whole" any more and they somehow lose value as a person.
Avatar f tn t present you with any symptoms. The valve between the two right chambers in your heart has a slight leak. However, some of the newer breed of Cardiologists are starting to investigate Mild leaks. The reason is, if an ongoing infection for example is the cause, it can quite quickly turn to moderate, and then severe. Valves are best dealt with at the earliest possible stage.
Avatar n tn There s very mild reversible ischemia in the anterior wall in the LAD terrtory.The left ventricular ejection fraction was calculatedor visually estimated to be 71percent.the docter will do my angiogram.This report shows ok.
