I have been feeling heart pain, what am i supposed to do?

I have been feeling heart pain, what am i supposed to do? PLEASE HELP!!?
over the past month i have been experiencing heart pain and it skips beats alot to, for the past four nights it's done it everytime around the same time, and it's always the worst then. during the day it does it sometimes but not as much as i've noticed at night when i'm trying to go to sleep, i smoke pot but not a whole lot, also i've had pain on the left side of my head and the upper left side of my neck( i don't know if that has anything to do with it), i have read about heart palpitations but i'm not sure thats whats happening because that usually only happens once a day and this is happening pretty rapidly, my dad has heart burn and anxiety crap which is gay and i've always hoped to avoid both of those things, btu i don't if i have anxiety or not and i'm not sure if that could contribute to whats happening or not, and i think i do have mild heart burn which could just be a combination with my heart skipping beats, i'm 16 and really not sure what to do. please help!!

It's nothing to worry about probably. If you're really concerned, than you have to go to the doctors, but I doubt it's anything other than some mild heartburn. It probably happens at the same time every day because you most likely eat at the same time every day. The neck pain could be caused from anxiety. As for the head pain, it's most likely the pot screwing around with your memory a little.

Every few days, I get this... spiralling numb pain on the left side of my back, just around my shoulder blade . It feels like someone is taking their hand and digging their fingernails into my back in a circular pattern, and it also feels like pins and needles. Today, at work, it started doing that, and it started hurting a lot. Then, I started sweating and I felt really hot, and the pain got so bad that my vision started going a bit blurry and I couldn t focus on what I was doing. It started feeling like there was something wrapped around my body, pushing on my chest from all directions, and restricting my ability to breathe. I tried to ignore it and concentrate on what I was supposed to be doing, and it went away after about twenty minutes, although the pain/ numbness in my back keeps coming back. Is there something wrong with my heart or my back? I wasn t stressing myself at work, or doing anything strenuous. I was counting stock.

hi. i ve just woke up from the most terrifying experience of my life. It was only a dream, but I feel overly confiident that I could ve died during this experience. In my dream I was hanging with my friends smoking when all of a sudden I felt a very real, and painful numbness I suppose in my head. This came and went in my dream and caused a lot of alarm. Everytime this happened, maybe a total of 4, I couldn t speak,and I went partially blind. and my thoughts felt very fuzzy so it was impossible for me to communicate this issue with my dream buddies. Anyway on the 4th time this happened my heart began to beat completely out of control, I would estimate 200 bpm. It was incredibly intense. This is when I woke up. my heart was still beating way out of control.I looked at the clock to see that i d only been sleeping for 30 mins, but it d felt like days. I am still shakey from this scary experience, as i ve never encountered so much pain or had such a fast heart beat. My heart still hurts. Could I have died of heart failure? what happened?

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

i m a clinical social worker. 14 year old client has micradenoma on or near pituitary gland. Some hormone levels were elevated but she was examined by neurologist and no surgery necessary they say. Has all kinds of symptoms -- racing thoughts, visual hallucinations at times, out of control anxiety, rage outbursts, trouble reasoning and little access to insight, preoccupied about her body and somatic complaints, defiance. However she doesn t really seem bipolar or schizophrenic, though she was Dx d bipolar. I don t think it looks psychiatric, it seems so odd and doesn t add up to any one Dx. Neurologists told parents the tumor had nothing to do wiht any of this, what do you think??
