Avatar m tn Funny thing is that symptoms of low acid vs too much acid are similar...and when one works one day and then the other works the next day, it makes it kinda hard to figure out which one is the problem! Thanks again for your help, just nice to have a response and know that other people are going to similar things (though I'm sorry for others' suffering as well).
Avatar n tn About a year ago, I suffered my first attack of very severe pain just beneath my breatbone. Hurt so much I thought I might be having a heart attack. It was just after a high fat, spicy meal. Another happened a few weeks later and my MD prescribed a trial of Nexium. 3 months later, I go off the nexium, and the attacks come back within a few days. Same thing--sudden severe pain just under my breatbone, deep inside.
Avatar f tn While there are no absolute guarantees in this life, it sounds like you've been check-out sufficiently to make a heart attack unlikely. Have you had any emotional analysis, i.e., panic/anxiety/depression.. whatever? Emotions can cause rhythm problems, and likely bowel problems too. I am not aware of any other connection between the two physical conditions.
Avatar n tn and that's all it took to get rid of the out of control panic attacks. It took them a LONG time to rehydrate me, my heart would not slow.. Yes, I am deep in the heart of bronchitus now, but it's much more bearable than the later. *this* is why they should not just try and treat the panic attack and ignore anything further..they could be happening for a reason. The first 2 ER visits made this mistake and thr bronchitus finally showed itself. They said it's been working on me a long time...
Avatar n tn I had my first panic attack at 26, couldn't breathe, heart racing, tingling in hands, so I went to the ER, checked myself in as "I am having a heart attack" -- diagnosis was anxiety and I have been on meds ever since (now 42). Through meds and seeing a psychologist to get to the root of the problem which was a loss at the age of nine (my dad), I am now able to control the hyperventilation, racing heart, etc. The meds in combination with therapy have both helped.
Avatar f tn Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
Avatar f tn And I mean heart attack, not valve surgery, not congestive heart failure, not stroke. A diagnosed heart attack prematurely. Age 80 doesnt count. Are you a smoker? Are you diabetic? Are you a guy? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have a poor lipid profile? Meaning high bad cholesterol and/or low good choelsterol?
1129774 tn?1279835362 Did they do any blood testing to be sure you haven't suffered a heart attack? In women, sometimes a heart attack can present something like heartburn. You might ask about getting a nuclear medicine test- which can show how your heart functions when it is beating faster (like with exercise). They might use thallium or a newer substance (don't recall the name) that they inject once your heart rate is high enough on the treadmill.
Avatar n tn I only value them in determining that I haven't had a heart attack. But I wouldn't trust one to help prevent a heart attack. I don't think they can accurately determine if you have building placque that can lead to a future heart attack. And I am a huge proponent of preventing heart attacks rather than focusing on treating them after they occur. God Bless!
405614 tn?1329147714 Kathy, Do you have any lesions in your T-spine? I get chest pain and arm pain that feels like a heart attack and have been told that the nerves where my lesion is in the T-spine wrap around the ribs over the heart. I do have Tachycardia but that's another issue, lol. Don't mess around because I have grown fond of you and we only have one heart. When you go to the hospital/doctor you can add the T-spine issue to your list of concerns.
Avatar n tn small vessel disease is that you cannot tell whether the event is a small vessel attack (which typically doesn't do damage unless it goes on untreated) or a heart attack. The only way is to go the ER and have have studies done. The patient cannot tell and the cardios cannot tell unless the tests are done. No one's at blame for this. Once a person is on a treatment plan, things can get better.
Avatar m tn as well as performing less well than a simple diuretic to lowering the blood pressure... I think some of the beta-blockers are still very good to prevent heart attack and heart damage especially the newer ones like the Bystolic, Bisoprolol, Carvedilol and the metoprolol XL... I did a full day on the Metoprolol yesterday...
Avatar n tn i am only 23 and I have suffered from left sided chest, arm, and pain between my shoulder blade and my spine for two years thinking everyday is my last fearing i am going to have a heart attack but i've had blood work ups for my heart and for cancer i have also had EKG's, ECG's, and a stress test but all come back fine just really having a hard time beleiving that anxiety can cause this everyday for two years the only thing that seems to help are muscle relaxers and exercise my dr.
Avatar n tn dad has RBBB and SVT with successful ablation just recently, grand-father 3 heart attacks and died age 48, uncle heart attack age 35 still living. Funny too, since my Internal dr. I originally saw when this first happened told me to ignore my heart rate of 180 and accompanying symptoms and relax. She was so helpful, NOT! Thanks for your reply. I am very sorry to hear about your mom though.
1554262 tn?1374243601 I even had to get a cup out of the trash once since there were none around during an attack! I don’t think it’s a heart issue but I just don’t know. I do drink coffee in the mornings, don’t exercise much as I should, but I don’t know if that’s it.
Avatar m tn sweaty at the same time, weak with a flushing through my body feeling and then I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack (squeezing crushing sternum pains for hours) Whats wrong with me and my heart's electrical system they have no clue yet, the ep didn't think to seem it was "environmental" more my brain/heart system so I have to have a tilt table test done to see if there's a connection.
Avatar n tn There is no increased risk of cancer in Graves patients treated with RAI vs other treatments. There may be some mild nausea or heartburn, but this is transient. In rare cases (< 1%) there may be a painful inflammation of the thyroid after RAI which is sometimes associated with severe hyperthyroidism -- this is transient and can be treated medically. WOMEN WHO MAY BE PREGNANT MAY NOT TAKE RAI AND WOMEN SHOULD NOT BECOME PREGNANT FOR 6 MONTHS AFTER RAI.
Avatar f tn Went to a x-mas party and two other women had thyroid problems, fibromyalgia type symptoms also. Any others out there with similar scenarios???
Avatar n tn I saw another post about atrial fibrillation and stomach gas possible association or connection. I too have the same thing so it may not be all in your head if your suspect this to be the case. Most dr.'s think your crazy or never heard of this when you even suggest it. Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned.
221122 tn?1323014865 There is a forum I look at where a neurologist answers questions and he says that he has never known benign ectopics to lead to a cardiac event (I guess he means heart attack etc) when the heart is structurally sound and not diseased. It's hard to accept but if you've had all the tests you are very probably okay, horrible as these things are.
Avatar f tn What is your HR and BP when sitting and standing upright at 30 sec, 2 min, and 5 min (only do all of those if you can sit and/or stand for those lengths of time safely ... leave out anything that causes excessive symptoms but do tell what symptoms are preventing you from doing which measurements)? What treatment regimen are you on? What medications do you take, if any (I see you say Florinef ... anything else)? What non-pharmaceutical treatments do you use (e.g.
Avatar n tn Last night I watched an advertisment for an alergy medicine. It helped you catch your breath and your eyes would not be red, But...you could have a heart attack, excessive bowel movements, you might throw up all of the time, and sometimes it causes death....but, other than that..it was great! You know, I really think that a switch over to using olive oil and cutting out the bad fats would produce results for many people. Think about Crisco...It DOES NOT MELT IN YOUR HAND...
640719 tn?1277143630 if it occurs every single time you eat something, that's quite different than an attack. when I hear the word attack I think of Gall Bladder. of course, that may just be due to my own family history and experiences. although I had a problem with it, I barely had any "attacks" compared to others in the family. overall, I'm thinking something other than Thyroid with this specific problem. food allergy or celiac pops into my mind.
Avatar f tn The only significant indicator I have when I first turn Hyper is heart symptoms. Not racing heart. Pressure on the heart. A dull ache. Skipped beats and once in a while a little rev up for two seconds. A feeling that the heart is way past tired, and ready to just stop. Normal blood pressure and heart rate. The depression is worse, and eventually I get shakey, am hungry a lot and need to sleep a lot. I am tired and can't stand heat or cold whether I'm Hyper or Hypo.
