HI XXXXXXX .. this is Mahee
I used to work in Bangalore .. right now .. moved to US for like 3 months ..
please go ahead
This is happening since how many days now?
I get this .. occassionally .
but this week .. it is too much ..
Okay, do you remember when it first started?
this faint like feeling is more in this week ...
Okay, what kind of information are you looking for?
and I went to gym on monday .. was unable to breathe
I want to know y n symptoms ..
okay... I will answer your question, first I would like to know more about it.. so, please if you don't mind answer a few questions of mine
When did this all begin?
it was there in the first few weeks of the trip
it was all fine till last week
Okay, when was that?
how many days back was that?
During the last 2 weeks of December
Okay, that was the first time ever in your life that started having these symptoms?
Ok, how long do these symptoms last each time?
You feel faint, then in what time do you feel fine again?
2-3 days ..
I dont see these .. If I sleep like more than 9 hrs
Okay, that means, you get these symptoms while you are awake and walking around
no .. I mean with proper sleep .. I feel active ..
now wat i m scared of my symptoms is short of breath .. while working out ..
this is something i never faced n this faint like feeling
When you feel faint, does it get better if lie down
u mean .. a short nap ?
When was the last time you checked your blood pressure?
5 months ago
do you remember how much it was?
no .. but it was normal
I did not mean short nap, I meant, just laying down, just till you feel better
okay, have you noticed any particular food or smell that makes these symptoms appear?
yeah .. yeah .. if I sleep
how old are you?
no .. nothing as such till now ..
Okay, have you put on weight recently, that is after going to Aerica?
I work out 4 days in a week
Do you have any pain in your tummy?
yes .. it goes off .. when I eat something n I have burning sensation ..
Okay, do you get burping often?
yes I do
The nausea and faint feeling seems to due to gastritis
sometimes I feel heavy just right under ribs..
and breathing difficulty needs to be evaluated further to find the exact reason
do you have any cough?
I have been taking ginger n ginger tablets for gastritis
Ginger tablets will not help
ohh ok ok
It will make the gastritis worse
do u want to me take tablets ?
For now, I would suggest you to make an appointment with a internal medicine specialist
and get yourself examined to find the reason for breathing difficulty
it is unusual to develop breathing difficulty all of a sudden
yeah ... breathing is what scared me most
And a complete physical examination will give us clues to what might be going on
ohh ok ok ..
but we need to be sure about it
you mean sort of blood n urine report or something else ?
hence, it is recommended to visit a doctor
No, a physical examination is checking for signs in your body by examination
I did it last year .. complete body check up ..
we call it ausculation, inspection and palpation
we need to look, feel and hear your body
any good hospital in bangalore .. that you recommend
that is physical examination
There are plenty of good hospitals in Bangalore
where do you live?
Okay, in that case you can visit Manipal Hospital
opposite XXXXXXX Palace
Blood and urine tests you referred to are investigations
we will be able to ask for those only after a physical examination
how abt SRL diagnostics or Apollo in bannergatta road
SRL diagnostics is just a lab
you will not get a doctor to look at you and examine you
Apollo is also fine
do I have to ask to do 'ausculation, inspection and palpation ' ?
No, if you consult an internal medicine specialist, that is MD general medicine, he/she will ask you about your symptoms
and then they will examine you
you don't need to ask
that is a part of consultation
generally no one suggests manipal ..
but i will go check .. for sure
Why is that?
dnt knw ..
Manipal hospital is okay
tell me which is good ..
they have plenty of patients
good is a matter of perspective
In my opinion, St John's hospital is good
XXXXXXX Hospital is good
Bowring Hospital is good
They are all teaching hospitals
Jayadeva is only for heart related problems
ohh ok ok
Where is St.Johns ?
it is a super-specialty hospital
St John's hospital is in Koramangala
ohh ok ok ..
Is there anything else I can help you with?\
No.. I am good ..
thank you for using the chat service
