Irregular heart beat, palpitations,some mild chest pain, extreme dizziness, loss of appetite, vomiting, insomnia. What does it indicate?

Help! I am 37, always been reasonably healthy except for a bad migraine condition In the past 2 weeks I have suddenly begin to have the following symptoms: Irregular heart beat, palpitations,some mild chest pain , extreme dizziness , loss of appetite , vomiting, insomnia , intense pain on the lower side of my back (almost in the hip/buttocks area, right side only) This has continued almost continuos for about 2 weeks. However the last 48 hours I am having even worse symptoms..................the veins in my hands, wrists and feets seem to have shrunken to invisible, I have intermittent numbness and tingling in the hands, feet, face and scalp. I thought maybe i was dehydrated and drank a huge amount of Gatorade last night which seemed to help for a bit. But now I feel about the same..not the numness, but chest pain and have added a hacking cough! I know go to the doctor is the best answer. But I am hoping someone can give me an idea of what this might BE so I can be prepared. HELP!!

your problem can be a wide range of things! it could be something as simple as stress- it can cause your body to go haywire like that, or if could go to something as serious as a tumor or cancer! you definately need to go to the doctor and get some tests run!

My brother in law has been to the er twice now and has been sick for two months. Nobody can seem to figure out what is wrong with him. His chest hurts, he feels like his heart is beating irregular and he is very dizzy and his hand even keeps getting numb. He had a heart attack about 5 years ago. Do you know what might be the problem?

I am a 51 y.o. white female, slightly overweight. No real health problems. My question: I have had NO sexual intercourse with my husband for several years due to very low libido and disinterest. If I were to have sex again with him, could it be dangerous, as I wonder if I m dried up and I get irregular heart beats if I get sexually stimulated. My heart rate flies and I sometimes get mild chest pain in orgasm. It frightens me. Please help! I m afraid to have sex!Thank you. Mrs. Beaver

I am a 57 year old woman. I have hypertension well controlled with prescription meds for 2 years. recently I went for routine exam, doc asked me whether I had shortness of breath, irregular heart beats, lightheadedness, or left arm tingling. No to all of the above. Why did doc recommend echo stress? BTW: my results came back normal (Thank goodness!), yet now I have a $9,000 bill for a test that was normal. Could any other test have been done as a heart function screen before the echo stress?

I have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?
