Brief Answer:
likely intestine pathology.do not panic till further examination or results

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the details .

* Seems more likely from intestine pathology rather than hemorrhoids .

* Doctor will confirm the diagnosis with ano proctoscopy evaluation and if
necessary colonoscopy to find out the source of bleeding & further
management in accordance to that .

Gentle request to
- Make her calm because stress will increase her problems .
- Maintain her hydration with plenty of liquids .

Wishing her fine recovery .
Regards dear take care .

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?
