Hi,
you may have diabetes and high blood pressure.
you have not mentioned your age and sex and weight so it is difficult to conclude any thing.
Go for blood sugar,lipid profile.
This may be signs of manopausal syndrome if you are female around 50 years,
At this stage I only can say take less fat and carbohydrate in diet.
Avoid fried food and do exercise daily.
Ok and bye.

Hello
Welcome to health care magic.

As you have not mentioned your age and gender my answer might not be complete.

I would suggest you to get an evaluatiion done by a physician for blood pressure and also for hormonal assay. Thyroid functions test and pituitary hormone assay and FSH and LH ( in c/o females).
Disturbances in body fluid levels (blood) could be one reason or your hormonal imbalance could be the other.
Practice mild yoga exercises and also Pranayama for 20 minutes to restore the balance. Also concentrate on good and healthy eating. More of liquids and fruits and nuts. POtassium rich food will give you stregth..

I keep getting frequent, very painful headaches. I have had one off and on for the past 3 days. Most recently when having the headaches I have felt sharp pain on the left side of my head and I feel dizzy, and almost feel like I could pass out. What could be causing this?

Hi, I am 16, female. I have been very light headed and dizzy the past few days, to the point where things go black and I have to hold on to something or someone so I don t fall flat on my face or bottom. For the prior 2 1/2 months I have had bloating which has gotten worse overtime, but no significant weight gain, not to explain the difference in the size of my lower abdomen, I also eat the same, if not less cause I often feel sick, and extremely tired. Along with sharp shooting pains, and an irregular period. I thought I may be pregnant, so I took two hpt s both negative. So I went to the gynecologist where she had me take another, it came back positive in my urine, the same day no more then an hour later I went for blood work which came back negative. I went for a follow up which was also negative. What is wrong, am I pregnant?

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,
