I have had two severe chest pain and it seemed the heart would burst in my chest. Doctors here in Mo tested me with nuclear stress test and the heart showed good . Could colon have anything to effect the heart, I have lost a good deal of weight and perhaps could I be low in Potassium ? In 2003 I was hospitalized with a possible heart attack and the doctor did not determiner it was a heart attack or not. Then I was sent to do the tread mill stress nothing showed.

I have been having alot of stress lately and also trying to get over this kill cold. I have been taking tylenol allergy and sinus each day, the liquid, but haven't gone over the directed amount. Now I am having a slightly irregular heart beat, like, 1, 2, 345, 6, 7, 8, 91011, 12, 13. Something like that. It's kind of scary but isn't producing any symptoms like tired, dizzy, nothing. Should I worry? The heartbeat thing has been going on for about a day, the cold is almost gone now so I stopped with the meds. Thanks, Matthew

Hello, I am 34 and I would like to ask you if higher cortisol level and higher progesterone level can be sign of some medical problem - maybe connected with adrenal glands? In the morning my blood cortisol was ok - 558,5 nmol/L, but in the evening it was high - 670,1 nmol/L, while ACTH was ok. Cortisol during ACTH test was also ok before infusion - 352,2 nmol/L and high after infusion - 588,1 nmol/L. My progesterone was higher - 100,7 nmol/L - and I am not pregnant. All thyroid hormons are all right. My health problems includes higher blood pulse (heart pressure is ok), chronical fatigue (I sleep a lot), shortness of breath during little walk, frequent urination and occassional blood and slime in urine (all bacterial tests of urinal tract are negative), reduced bleeding during menstruation with a lot of slime. Should I check other hormons to exclude hormonal problems? Thank You. Alex

I have low body temperature, and am concerned that my thyroid may be not working optimally. My TSH is 4.13. If I reduce the stress in my life, will my thyroid bounce back ?
