I have had a tingling feeling in my right side of my chest

I am a 22 y/o female I am obese. For about a week, I have had a tingling feeling in my right side of my chest (between my breasts and under my right breast). Today I started to have some tingling in my right arm and hand. I know I am at high risk for a stroke or heart attack, but I am so scared to go to the ER to see what is wrong. Someone please help me... Heart attacks, Strokes Cancer. both run in my family....my grandfather has had plenty them, and my uncle has had 2 strokes. My Grandmother had breast cancer, my grandfather had prostate cancer, and my 2nd uncle died of brain cancer. It doesn t matter which side your heart is one! My grandfather had a stroke and is paralyzed on his right side, my uncle had a stroke and he is paralyzed on his left side!

I am so sorry to hear that but I think you should go to the doctors if your not wanting to go to the ER. The tingling sensation is a mild sign of a stroke, the alarming part is when it starts trickling down to other areas of your body. If it was just between your breast, under your breast, then I would advise you to check for lumps but also get a mammogram (my mom had breast cancer). It's a sign of your bloodstream not getting enough oxygen (clogging your airflow in your natural blood flow in your blood arteries). People don't even realize that they are having a stroke (especially when it's mild) but it will get worse if you don't get that checked out. You might also take an aspirin to help thin your blood and really need to focus on getting healthy (in terms of your weight, I'm sure it's hard but you have to have the will to live a healthier life). If you need more advice, just let me know and I will do what I can. Take care of yourself, your life is worth living.

I ve been having this sharp pain in my chest right on my sternum, just a little bit to the right side. It started this morning and hasn t stopped all day. It s worse when I lay down and exhale, and comes and goes depending on how I m sitting/moving, or when I move my arms around. When I lay on my side it also gets worse. I ve also just started to feel a slight tingling in my left hand and arm. I m only 24 and in good health, not overweight but haven t been very active lately. My heartbeat seems normal, but I m worried that something s wrong.

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.
