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..

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?

Hi! I have been using Claratin D for years and am now past menopause. I stopped taking it a couple of weeks ago because it was drying up all of my orafices and I was finding it more difficult to lose weight. I am allergic to sulfamides, but no doctor I have ever used ever pointed out that this could be a problem. I am also having trouble with my retina.

I have been on HRT for about 7 years and I have had a great experience until last year. My provider upped my estrogen. I gained 10 -15 pounds in 8 weeks. After a year of getting it out of my system I am finally returning to my old body. Two weeks ago I went for my HRT. He upped my estrogen level despite me stating I wasnt having hot flashes, mood swings, etc. Within a day or two my hands started being cold all of the time, and they are hard to get warm. Now, two weeks out my nipples are getting extremely sore. I have never experienced the cold hand before. I did experience the tender nipples last year for the first time after he upped my estrogen and I gained weight. Could the weight gain, sore nipples, and cold hands be from having too much estrogen?
