Question: Hello Doctor. I am looking for ways to help reduce anxiety that has suddenly over come me. I have been through a lot of late and most recently went into vasovagal shock when a blood draining procedure was incorrectly done on me. I wqs diagnosed with an iron overload and recommended that i remove one pint every 8 weeks. However at the first session i was in the seated position and the blood was drained at a very fast rate which i could bot handle. Since then i have had trouble with anxiety and sometimes have little panic attacks. I had a warm sensation over my left chest yesterday and immediately thought i was having a heart attack and went to the clinic to see the doctors. Even thiugh the specialist cardiologist siad i have the heart of a 16 year old at my last examination which was after the vasovagal shock. Pls sir, how can i overcome this terrible feeling that i keep having, my left eye even started twiching and when i look at my hands they are not steady at times. I have problems with my acidity levels and have seen an gastroentologist who conducted a g scope and i was treated for h pylori prior to the incident of the vasovagal shock, so im not surr if this shock has contributed to elevated acid levels because of additional factors like stress and anxiety. I am a very aftive person and have been out of the gym and havnt been for my regular runs in over 9 weeks. The sensation over my chest came thiis week after i had returned to the gym and done some slight workouts to try and get back into my normal routine. Please advise if its still to early for me to exercise or the acidity could be a contributing factor to the sensation in my chest. I know my heart is in good health but the sensation is what is crameating added worry. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely. XXXXXX

Brief Answer:
You may have generalized anxiety disorder

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

I think, you have generalized anxiety disorder with panic disorder and that why, you have anxiety symptoms throughout the day. In your case, gastric symptoms could be due to anxiety symptoms. In anxiety disorder, gastric symptoms like increase acidity, chest pain etc increase. I think, you need few antidepressant like paroxetine with low dose benzodiazepine. That would help you to come out of the anxiety symptoms. You can also try some relaxation exercise. There is nothing harm in going to gym or on regular exercise. Better to consult a psychiatrist for proper management and diagnosis.

In case, you need further help, you can ask.

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.

I am writing about my 14 year old son, who has been ill repeatedly 4 times for the past 7 weeks. He s been on antibiotics all 4 times, struggles to recover until his antibiotics are nearly gone, finally feels better for a few days and then gets it again. We are wondering if it is valley fever. Can that come with congestion/sinus symptoms? He s been diagnosed with sinus infections each time, but develops not only significant congestion/sinus symtpoms, but also chest pain, horrible coughing, fatigue, sore throat, and is miserable. He has faithfully taken not only strong antibiotics, but prescription strength cough syrup/decongestant, Flonase nasal spray, Zyrtec once a day, and breathing treatments up to 4 times a day, along with vitamin C and lots of fluids. He is otherwise very healthy, but his doctor is concerned that perhaps it is not really sinus infections he has had. I cannot find on the internet where there is a connection between congestion/sinus symptoms and Valley Fever - curious about that as others have asked if he has been tested for it. We live in Phoenix. As a young child he had repeated ear infections, but 4 years ago at age 10 he had his tonsils and adenoids removed, tubes in his ears, and a major sinus surgery. He has been very healthy ever since until now. Any ideas? Thank you verey much!

I had a legion on my face and after a month it began to cause me chest pain that increased as the sore grew. I was concerned about the chest pain and its size so i went to a clinic. i thought it was a spider bite. he said it clearly wasn t so gave me an ointment for acne. he told me the sore had absolutely nothing to do with my chest pain. I took the ointment for 3 weeks and the chest pain and sore grew. By then i knew it was causing me pain the got more severe. I went to the hospital 3 weeks later and he also told my it wasn t causing chest pain. he gave me a antibiotic for infection and when i was a week into the bottle a pain ripped through my chest which didn t last just one second, but about 3 or 4. When it happened i thought i was having a heart attack. i went home and lanced it myself, which they didn t offer to do. it grew outward in a circle and was slightly smaller than a quarter. not far above the skin, it grew deep into my cheek. it took a week to fight the infection out. the pain subsided from a 8 and some intense 10 to about a 3 with occasional 10 stabbings. its comes and goes throughout the day. I didn t get blood test for the sore from either doctor. now the sore is gone but over the past 2 years ive been to the doctor for my chest pain and they have taken blood samples related to checking my heart. i havent told them about that infection because those first 2 doctors said the sore wasn t causing the pain, but how would they know since they never took a blood test. i know it caused the pain then and the aftermath now. Should i tell the heart doctor about the infection? Will he shrug me off like the other 2? and is it possible the infection is still there or gone but damaged something? what was the infection?
