Question: the other evening I got an upset stomach, my nose became stuff up and runny, I got very sleepy, and weak. this has happened before and usually will last an hour; always in the evening between 5 and 8. If tried logging what I eat but there's nothing unusual. I'm not over weight; 5'5" and 120 lbs. This has been going on for several years but happening more often now. At least 2 times in the last 4 weeks.

Brief Answer:
Clarifications please

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for your query.
I'm Dr. Shuba Hariprasad and will be answering your query today.

Would you clarify a few things for me, please?
*do you have may other medical issues or take any medications?
*do you smoke or consume alcohol?
*could you send the log of the foods you are on the days you had these symptoms? Include everything (drinks, snacks)
*did you check your blood pressure during these times?
*also try and note down the activities surrounding the flare up.
*do you have a garden or a pet?

I believe it is something you are doing or eating as it has happening over several years and settles by itself.

Please get back to me with the above requested clarifications so I can advice you better.

Warm regards,
Dr. Shuba Hariprasad

I take Claritin D12 everyday in the morning and propranolol 80mg once daily
I do not smoke, and I am a lite social drinker. At the time it happened I was not drinking alcohol. I have not checked my blood pressure during those times. I do not have a log for that day but as I recall there was nothing out of the ordinary. I will need to keep a better daily log.

Brief Answer:
Check blood pressure and heart rate daily and during symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for the follow up and clarifications.

*why do take Claritin d and propranolol?

Yes please do keep a daily log and monitor your blood pressure daily and specifically during these episodes. You can use a self upper arm blood pressure monitoring system. Don't use the wrist cuff.

Please get back to me with the log.
Wish you good health.
Warm regards,

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

doctor1 MD

My resting heart rate is unusually fast and even if i just walk up the stairs my heart is racing like ive just ran a mile. When i exercise i can feel my heartbeat in my chin and other strange places aswell as having red, blotchy skin all over my body, mostly my face and arms. Also, after exercise, if i open my mouth i can hear my heartbeat, its like a ticking noise. My mouth goes very very dry too. Finally ive noticed that if i lie down and place something across my chest for example a book or ipad, i can see my ipad wobble alot from my heartbeat, is any of this normal??

doctor1 MD

My rest heart rate is typically around 100 and my blood pressure is typically very good. I am now taking Bisoprol 5mg for atrial tachycardia. My last read had my rest heart rate at 94 but my blood pressure has dropped to 101/57. Should I be concerned?

I am a 23 year old female, studying medicine. For past 8 months, i have been having some episodes of heart 'dysfunctions' that now have turned constant. I need help in knowing what is the condition.
It started last may when one day i started feeling so weak that i just could not get up and was having a splitting headache, when i measured my BP was 90/55mmHg ( before it was always 120/80mmHg). I was having palpitations, bradycardia at times, tachycardia at times, extreme weakness, sweating ( especially on scalp) after sleeping after headache. I was also having light sleep.
Slowly, these episodes became constant. Now I am feeling weak all times, light headed if sitting or standing for long, headache (thumping with constant heaviness), inability to sleep, tightness in chest, chest pain sometimes, tachycardia at any normal activity (walking, doing some tidy up), BP is still low. I also get dry cough on breathing sometimes.
So i got a holter done for 24 hours, got following:
- sinus tachycardia( 110- 120) almost all day with some normal rate in between, my heart rate dropped to 50 in middle of night ( reason causing me to wake up from sleep and not to sleep again) and it remained like that for 3 hours
- average pulse -81
- my heart rate jumped to 179 per min when i climbed stairs ( 9 floors, easily climbed by others), breathing became laboured, headache with blacking out sensations ( i did not faint though)
- I have some abnormalities in lead I, II and III ( looks like left axis deviation as lead I is showing highest peaks and is moving away from III ) even the avL and avF looks weird, QTc>450ms is 47%, no ST deviation, no T wave abnormalities
I also have tachypnea (26-28 per min) and accentuation of Pulmonary part of second heart sound. I also have slight edema on my feet ( bluish tinge)
I also did a blood work up, I do not have thyroid problems or anemia
I need some advice on what i might be having, so as to proceed further on treatment.
