When I looked down it looked like the snap to a boat cover ...... Then my mind starts playing tricks on me .... and I start thinking.... maybe its the part of the syringe that you put your thumb on and push the fluid out of the syringe ( the top of plunger) .... Then my mind goes further and I have a panic attack .... My question is .... Is there ever a time when the end of the plunger the round end of a syringe that you use your finger to push the fluid out ..... Is that round piece Ever and I mean EVER Directly connected to the needle part of a syringe that inserts or goes into a persons arm ????

Brief Answer:
Round part directly attach to syringe

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

Syringe has two part. One tube with plunger and second needle. Plunger helps to get blood inside tube. It is directly attached to syringe, but whenever blood get entered into tube, it get stain of it. Chances of getting inside vein while taking blood or transferring blood is very less, almost possible, so there is nothing to worry about it.

In case, you have more query, you can ask.

I keep feeling my heart beat multiple times, too fast. It only happens for a minute or so, then it comes back again. And it usually leaves my out of breath. I went to the doctor last month for anxiety attacks because i also have sharp pains in my wrist, fingers, toes, back, and just about everywhere else. Do you think my heart is beating to fast over anxiety? Or is it something else?

Dear Dr.

I am a healthy 25 year old male, 180cm, about 90kgs. Non-smoker. I have suffered from panic attacks in the past and was treated with anafranil and therapy for about 2 years. My dosage was high, 200mg a day. I weaned myself off the meds 3 months ago, everything went fine - I feel great. the only problem is that my libido, which died completely during the course of the treatment, has not returned. Even if I do get an erection, I am just not really interested. I am worried about the effects on my relationship, I am crazy about my girlfriend. How long should I wait for it to return before I should start to worry? Thank you

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)

My heart feels strange sometimes. Sometimes it beats to hard it feels like its going to beat out of my chest. It sometimes has an uneven beat or it skips a beat. I also have anxiety attacks for no reason sometimes. I am a 32 year old male and of a healthy weight. I am very active. I do have neurofibromitosis.
