Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.
Good evening, Dr. Thank you for being available. I had a stroke about 2 weeks ago...no residual damage but fatigue and loss of appetitie. I am 65 but am in excellent shape, which is why I am still alive for sure! In doing followup tests, my PCP has discovered I am anemic, low on iron and have a uriniary tract infection. I have a couple of questions...are these conditions related in any way to the stroke and what foods can I eat that are iron rich (I just started taking a TBSP of molasses every day) in addition to iron drops my doctor will prescribe. I know abut leafy greens, liver, etc....any other thoughts? My dr. is great but he doesn t give me much information about nutrition. thank you
every time i eat fatty foods my chest hurts, i used to eat a lot of fatty foods and fried foods, i also smoke. when i exercise and eat fatty foods, it don t hurt or when i m working, which is physical work, can any one give me some insight on this? is it a heart problem or anything related to it? i m slowing up on fried and fatty foods, i eat a lot of boiled foods and cut down on pork also. i will be going to the doctor monday. i hope its not anything serious, i have a four month old grandson and i would like to be around to see him grow up, among other things. so if someone could give me tips on how to eat healthier and tell me any kind of oils if any, that has less fats, i ll be grateful.
Hello I am 16 and lately I have been having stomach ach, mainly at the bottom and both sides of the lower abdominals . On top of that, I ve been sweating a lot during the day, right until the night and cannot sleep at all. When do I try to sleep, I feel a bit of pressure on the side of my lower abdominal. Lastly, I have a black stool each time I take the trip to the loo. I think this might be due to sitting on the coach all day and the lack of sleep. Also the late heavy snacks which I eat during the night. Although perhaps knowing what the causes are due to my problems, I just like to make sure. So could you help me. Thanks

Hello, I have high blood pressure, and am a 21-year-old female. I have been prescribed a low-dose high blood pressure medication, and haven t had any complications with it. However, lately, I have been feeling like my chest is heavy and have had a hard time sleeping for quite some time. I wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air, and no matter how much sleep I get, I m exhausted when I wake up. I am starting to think it s Sleep Apnea, but am wondering if there are any other heart-associated links? There is S.A in my family - my father has it. Ideas?
