2nd time to have very heavy chest pain after climbing stairs to 3rd floor. I am 40yrs old,over weight but have never had this problem before. I take blood pressure meds but it is under control. This pain is like a ball blowing up in my chest. Should I try to get in to see my cardiologist or go to the er if it gets worse?

8 months ago I did something to my back/thigh area that I noticed after an airplane flight..I had an x-ray and have been to physio..also did intra-muscular needles..it just not seem to releive the pain for walking..I can only walk a little and then the pain in the lower back up the left thigh feels like a pinched type nerve..also my right foot seems to swell up when I am in more pain ......I am also overweight and trying to lose weight but can only exercise on a bike for about 10 minutes(according to my phsiotherapist) I do not have any access to a pool which I know would be good..could I do any type of exercise in the tub? I have always been very active even though I am overweight and it is really hard for me not to be able to move a lot...and of course I seem to be gaining even more weight because I cannot exercise as I should be..A bout 10 years ago I herniated the disc on the right side and the physio did traction etc..that really helped..any ideas ..please..for me ..I am just so tired of not being able to walk and stand any length of time.thank-you so much!

I am having acute right upper quadrant pain. It woke me up about an hour and a half ago. I am trying to decide if I need to go to the ER or not. I had gastric banding in July of this year but have never had any problems. Feel just slightly queasy.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
