Avatar f tn I tried to feed him a liquid diet but he refused to take it. A day before he died, he had a seizure and rushed him to the emergency clinic.

Avatar m tn This is called CO2 narcosis and it is a serious problem in treating respiratory failure in folks with chronic lung disease. Once you've gone past certain amount of CO2 in your blood, it stops stimulating you to breathe and you just fall asleep and stop breathing altogether. Deeper, faster breaths will remove CO2 from the blood faster than slow, shallow breaths. What are the best ways to increase CO2 levels in the blood?

Avatar n tn And when she has these spells, she's not lethargic or exhibitng any signs of respiratory destress. It's just blue lips on a very fair, blonde little girl and it's disturbing to see.

The problem is, her lips are never blue anymore by the time I take her to the doctor.

724734 tn?1230944872 Is this all in my head or are there physical disorders that can result in these feelings? My only other lead is that I started feeling this way shortly after I moved in to my new apartment, so it's possible there's some sort of mold that's making me have problems. I also feel somewhat better when I visit my parents out of state for a week, but that could very well just be in my head or a result of lessened anxiety...Who knows. I just need help and I honestly don't know what else to ask.

Neuro's latest thoughts are leber's hereditary optic neuropathy plus syndrome. This is because of my dad's history and the plus syndrome is like an ms syndrome.

604197 tn?1292308636 I cannot tell if something is burning, and cleaning chemicals/sprays are a nightmare as I learned to be very careful when cleaning and inhaling the fumes after I got a few respiratory infections. I did a great deal of research after the head injury and there was not much info out there. However, that was 10 years ago and a lot has changed. I can taste sweet, sour and definitely salt which can seem overwhelming if I feel something is too salty..I don't eat it.
Avatar n tn It started out with an upper respiratory infection that I found out from the doctor. Now my daughter around 2 every morning will wake up screaming and crying and throwing up everything in her stomach. She will either throw up 2 or 3 times or for more than an hour.

Avatar n tn Before the second stroke my mother asked not to be resuscitated in the event of a heart attack or respiratory failure. The reason for not resuscitating is because of the condition she would be in if she were to survive. She certainly did not want to be in a state of health like she currently is in. The difficult part in all of this is when I had to decide to let her die. Now we are waiting for the 'death call' from the hospital.
Avatar n tn You may not even know that you are having a heart palpitation or racing heart rate. My symptoms I thought were respiratory related but come to find out that they were not. These were my symptoms: While standing still for more than a few minutes, I would get irritable, short of breath, yawned,restless, nervous, and sometimes feel my heart going fast. While exercising, my heart rate would sky rocket and I would feel faint and dizzy and really short of breath.
Avatar n tn The only thing I've found that makes sense online (I googled Caffeine intolerance - which was how I found you) was that people with anxiety disorders seem more susceptible to caffeine intolerance, something about it causing over-stimulation. Anxiety disorders run in my family, and my mother, who has both an anxiety disorder and a heart condition, can also not drink caffeine. She just goes spastic if she does. I haven't really tried to do very much research into the issue.
