Question: I have had several occasions when I sweat excessively but feel cold and cannot control shivering. I also have a sharp pain in between my shoulder blades that persists for days but varies in severity. The two don't always occur together

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your query there can be many reasons for these kind of symptoms , but still firstly cardiac examination should be done as angina may give rise to such symptoms .An ECG and 2D echo should be done.

Secondly Diabetes and any kind of thyroid abnormality should be seen , since you dont give any history regarding these diseases so RBS , HbA1c and Serum TSH , T3 and T4 needs to be done .

Shoulder blade pain seems to be unrelated and can be mechanical so it will be difficult to say anything without examination.

Take care.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
