Question: I had an episode yesterday after near aspiration - I was able to cough up the piece of hash browns (small little piece). I was coughing so hard I could not continue standing due to a severe burning just under the skin from my neck down my upper chest and across my shoulders. The pain was intense. I don't take pain meds. Not even after hysterectomy, carpal tunnel release, wisdom teeth extraction. I have a very high tolerance. This was debilitating. It has not been as severe, but the pain has occurred each time I've coughed, sneezed, bent over, or with Valsalva when having BM. Last night after going to bathroom I was actually nauseated and had to lie down. I am a nurse, but I honestly don't know what this is or don't remember. It's like the pain is just under my skin. Not quite as bad today, but still somewhat of a problem.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
