How old are you? Does your chest hurt all the time, or only when you breathe deep? Do you have any swelling in your legs, or anywhere else? Either symptom you gave could be serious, and need to be checked out by your Dr. You could have bronchitis, pneumonia, or even more serious problems such as Congestive Heart Failure-which doesn't mean you have had a heart attack, neccesarily. GO TO THE DR!

I am 16 years old and it has been about 2 years or more since I have a short breath. I always feel like I don t get enough oxygen in my lungs when I am breathing. Therefore, I have to take a very deep breath every time i breath and sometimes I have to do it over and over again. I also get tired very easily. Although I only do a little bit of work or exercise, I can lose my breath easily. And it ends up making me inhale and exhale in a fast timing (if you know what I mean). Sometimes my chest can feels hurt a little but it s rarely happen so I never talk about it. I went to a heart doctor and he said it was perfectly fine and he said I don t have asthma. So what could it be?

Hi. I am a 31 y.o. female, 50 lbs overweight. I have hypothyroidism and high cholesterol. I have been havign mild chest pain on and off for a month or so, but didn t think anything of it until a week ago (on a Monday). It was severe enough that I couldn t concentrate and accompanied by nausea. It starts at my breast bone and curves upward towards my right shoulder. It feels like a tube of pain and also radiates into my back between my spine and rt shoulder blade. It also feels as if something is pushing on my windpipe at the bottom of my neck. I went to the Dr. same day and he was sure it was a gallstone attack. I went in on friday for an Upper GI and Ultrasound. The Upper GI was normal and the ultrasound showed no gallstones, though they did see a few benign spots on my liver that they are recommending that I have looked at via MRI. I am assuming this means that it is not my gallbladder causing the problem then. However from Thursday through Saturday I had yellow diarrhea (it s now Monday again) and thought the chest pain has lessened it is still there. It doesn t get worse or better with position, exercise or eating, though it is a little more uncomfortable with deep breaths. I am feeling increasingly tired. My Dr s appt is tomorrow for follow-up, but the fatigue has me a little worried. I also belch excessively but have read that this may be a side-effect of the Lovaza I am on for my cholesterol. What do you think could be causing the chest pain?

Hello Doctor, My name is Careyanne Johnson I am a 21 year old female. I am growing concerned with my well being because I have been experiencing some foreign symptoms. Starting with today the right side of my mouth has been partially numb for going on several hours now & I am having throbbing headache that comes and goes behind the back of my lower head & temples. Just a couple days ago my toes (on the right side again) were numb as well. I have also been having sharp, deep chest pains for a few months now. At first I thought it could maybe be heart burn but realized it is a much different ache. I think its safe to say the chest pains have grown more frequent because I m counting them every day now instead of once or twice a week. The only other symptoms I can think of is my ears will ring every now and then but still more so then I would think is normal. & I feel like I have poor circulation to my legs cause sometimes they feel stiff, however I also have a job where I stand without sitting for up to 8 hours a day. I have had Health issues in the past where I would become very light headed, my vision would go black, and I sometimes would faint. the fainting spells never lasted more then 5 mins. I was only unconscious for 30 seconds to 1 min. I have seen a neurologist and he conducted many tests, an MRI or brain scan being one of them. My results were all negative. The dr. did refer me to a cardiologist that I never went to. My fear is I may have a stroke or heart attack please help!

Sent to cardio EP, who states that condition is due to low sodium levels and advised to up sodium. Sodium levels taken 3xs over this period have been between 133 -135.
