Hello, i am Emily from Finland. Last year i lost 8 months baby boy who died a few hours after we checked in emergency ward of the university hospital of Turku. The cause of the death was not known till now...I got pregnant again and i got a baby boy 5 months and he died 3 weeks ago with the same symptoms like my first baby and upto now we are waiting for any answer from the same hospital. The symptoms were a week before fever about 39 degrees centigrade and vomited twice...i took him to the hospital, they took all the necessary blood tests and urine tests and the results were OK...the baby was eating normal and playing normal in short healthy. A week later it was vaccination time the baby got 5 months normal vaccination and i explain to the nurse what had happened a week ago and she said it is normal with babies to get fever. The next after vaccination the baby had slight fever i gave panadol suppository and fever went down but he started breathing with difficulties...mostly using muscles for breathing. I took him to emergency ward and the doctor just told after examing the baby with stethoscope all is ok but i asked why is the baby using muscles for breathing which is not a good sign...The doctor asked me if it is because of fever or vaccination...I just looked at the doctor with no answer! hours later my baby died the same like the other and now we buried Sami on 4.8.2012 and still waiting for any answer why he died...PLEASE would you after reading the symptoms have an idea what could it be? I will appreciate and be at peace when i know. Thank you. Emily

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.

I had a herpetic whitlow - sp? which caused lymphangitis, or red streaking up my hand and arm - about the same time, my heart started beating irregularly and I went on a 7 day course of Keflex. While on the Keflex, my heart was fine. The minute I went off the Keflex, the palpitations came back. I ve worn a heart monitor and was told that 2% of my heartbeats are extra but what I feel is that there is some sort of infection at play here even though my bloodwork has come back normal. Thoughts?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer
