Constantly light-headed, lightly thumping, dizzy spells, right arm numb, heartburn and nausea. Heart problem ?

am a femal that is 5 ft 2 in and 280 lbs. This morning I woke up to dizzyness. I still have dizzy spells from time to time, but am constantly light-headed and lightly thumping. Last night and today my right arm stays in a constant state inbetween normal and numb. Once and a while I have a pain in it but it is not often. I have been in and out of nausea or heartburn all day long. I was wondering if I should go to the ER for a heart problem?

Hello,

No, probably is not a heart problem. But my advice to you to see a neurologist, as there may be you need an MRI of your spines.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,

I am 18 year old, fit, execising female. I had been having palpitations and dizziness ( vertigo like sensations) after meals (especially dinners) One night I woke up with strong beats and there were also some really strong beats like thumps that left me breathless for a moment. (I still have them) There were also indigestion/ heartburn (burning and making gas/burping) I went to a cardiologist , made ECG, Echo, Holter and Blood test and he said it was all normal. Yesterday,again after dinner my head started spinning more and continued till morning. I was concerned so I went to the health facility of my university. After some tests, (urinal test) I have been diagnosed with urinal tract infection. I haven t taken any medicines yet but right now I have coming-going pain-like sensations in the middle of my chest, in addition to the faint uncomfortable sensation under my left arm (rib area) (before and after dinner) Also my left arm is kind of numb around my elbow and forearm (but i think this could be related to the blood test) The doctor at the health facility said there could be a problem with a vulva , but I don t understand how since echo was said to be okay. He also said my dizziness could be related with my ears. I don t know what is wrong but I am really concerned. Is there a possibility of a heart attack or a blocked artery? Or are these all because of the infection going on in my body?

Hi, for the past week I have been extremely dizzy and had diaorrhoea. Yesterday I had a sudden, Sharp, throbbing pain in the left side of my head which immobilised me and lasted for about 10 minutes. I had a short spell of numbness in my left arm afterwards and my head now feels strange and numb. I also have to pass a bowel motion immediately after eating and although this is now not diaorrhoea it is still quite loose and bright yellow in colour.

Hi, my bf and I had dry humping couple of times yesterday. He had 2 boxers on and shorts and I had my panties. We tried to make sure nothing came on me. The next day evening I started feeling nauseous and tired. After a day, I still felt slight nausea but whenever I ate something, it stopped. I urinate a lot too and feel tired. I belch a lot too. My breasts feel a little tender and nipples hurt(i think they hurt because of bf making out on them too much yesterday). Am I pergnant?
