Urine pregnancy test advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Delayed periods can be due to pregnancy, stress or hormonal disturbances.
Back pain, abdominal cramps and white discharge can be present in pregnancy or in premenstrual period.
I will suggest you to get a urine pregnancy test tomorrow.
If negative, then you can for a week for the periods.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

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
