I am under the cardio unit due to missed heart beats, ectopic and series heart beats, the heart rate is often functioning at twice the speed when it should be a resting heart rate. I have been off work for about for months, exhausted. Symptoms are worse lying down at night, particularly on the left hand side. I have solid chest pain for a few days at a time. This week has been the worst with hardly any let up in the symptoms and tonight lying in bed I got two short but severe electric shock sensations in the heart which I haven t experienced before. I have coaliac disease and struggle to absorb iron (regularly borderline anemic) and am on iron tablets. For a period of time the chest pain was accompanied by a severe pain in the right ear canal. My GP thinks that this could be connected to what is happening in the heart, but no answers yet. Awaiting the outcome of the second holter. Structurally an echo showed the structure of the heart to be sound. The latest development of the shocks being so strong (although extremely short in length is disturbing me - hence looking for answers). Are you able to assist. Thanks. A very tired Trace.
For about three months now I have been experiencing an increasing irritation in my left upper eyelid accompanied by a periodic sharp stabbing pain, the frequency of which has been increasing until it has become almost constant. The eyelid does not appear red or inflamed either on the surface or underside. The sharp stabbing pain occurred only two or three times a day when I first noticed it. My opthamologist looked at it one week ago but couldn t see anything wrong so dismissed it, but it is becoming almost constant and unbearable. It is causing my eye to start to become sensitive to light. Over the last fifteen years, I have had two cataract surgeries, a vitrectomy and about a month ago I had surgery to repair a hole in the retina of my left eye, followed be the 10 day facedown recovery period. My eye does not seem sore, only the eyelid which twitches frequently. I wondered if the eyelid was becoming irritated by the three types of drops I was using twice a day: except that this irritated eyelid started occurring long before I started using the drops. What are your thoughts concerning this problem?
Hello, I m an 18 year old female living in Canada. I m 5 5 and 145 pounds. I ve been experiencing a sharp pain in my left breast for over 3 months now. For the first 3 weeks the pain felt more on the surface of the breast, like in the skin; But after that the pain has transferred what feels to be deeper and deeper into my breast. For the past month it has felt very deep in my chest. Sometimes, I even experience it across my whole chest, and sometimes, right in the middle of my chest. I haven t been really active lately, so I am highly doubtful of some sort of muscle strain. I also have been on birth control for 2 years now, and have been smoking for those 2 years, up until a month into when the chest pain began. The pain comes and goes. It can last from under a minute, to 5 minutes, occurring anywhere from 1-10 times a day. It happens at least once a day. Nothing seems to trigger it, it comes randomly, though the pain does becomes stronger when breathing deeply. I m wanting to know what possible things it could be. I ve been doing some research, and thankfully, it appears that sharp pain in a breast is not associated with breast cancer. Though I am worried about the fact that I ve been smoking cigarettes while on my birth control pill (Brand: Apri 28). I ve heard that has some nasty consequences. I ve been smoking for about 3 years, smoking about 1/2 a pack per day. I would also like to mention that there is a coarse hair that grows out of my areola on that breast, that I pluck whenever I notice it. It doesn t grow out from the skin around my areola, it grows from my areola. On the pink part. Just thought I should add that as well since I thought that was a bit unusual. It grows from the same place every time, and that has been the ONLY hair. Please get back to me ASAP. thank you for your time.
My dad had a kidney removed because of cancer, while recovering in hospital he had a heart attack, they diagnosed him with heart disease and arteriosclerosis. He was released from hospital monday but since he has been home he has had loss of vision in right eye cannot feel his right leg at most times and when he can he says it feels like it is bursting. Today he kind of passed out and twitched a little out of nowhere for a few seconds. What should we do? in regards to diet any home remedies that relieve pain or should we call an ambulance? I need help!!!
Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?
The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination. I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
