I've been to the ER twice since the end of

I've been to the ER twice since the end of August. The first time I had arm tingling, elevated heart rate, high blood pressure. They ran an EKG and my heart was fine. I was stable within a few hours so was sent home. I had more tingling so began setting a neurologist. I've had various tests including an MRI of my brain. I had another separate episode of elevated heart rate and some chest pain(not severe), which caused new to go to the WE a second time. Once again EKG was fine along with other blood tests including troponin. Things seemed too settle down, but I still don't feel 100% my usual self. I'm having chest pain again, which started the other day. I've been giving it time because it always turns out to be nothing. It isn't going away and my upper back is sore. I also feel like I'm starting to get a chest cold. Should I take myself to the ER again? I feel like I'm eating their time because all of my tests turn up normal.

Ive had diarrhea for the last 3 days now, it hasnt gotten better, and i woke up in the middle of the night to have stuff coming out of both ends. I NEVER vomit, and I havent since I was a child, im 18 now, but I have already thrown up twice in the past 45 minutes. I have tingling and numb hands and fingers, and my stomach keeps making gurgling noises. should I be concerned? should I go to emergency? I havent been getting better.

So, I ve been having hearing problems for a while. I have gotten my ears looked at by a doctor at least twice since it started but somehow nothing was discovered. You see, I obsessively clean my ears with a Q-tip, even though I m aware it s bad. Another piece of history is that I ve had ear infections since I was a child. Now, lately I ve been feeling like my head is underwater, my head was making the sounds of a ripe watermelon when I tapped it, and the hearing in my left ear has gotten worse, but I hadn t gotten around to making a doctor s appointment. I was assuming this was a result of cleaning with a Q-tip, and a buildup of wax. As an exercise in self-control I tried stopping for long periods of time, but every time after a while simply couldn t take it (it was itching) and went back to it. Just today I ended a several-week long period of not picking and cleaning... Doing so, I managed to pull out something that must have been stuck in there for a long time: A spruce needle! (Half an inch in length.) Last time I was sleeping in the woods was a year ago March, and the needle has actually gone black, but it still smells quite nice. :P At the moment I m experiencing some mild pain and I m assuming some inflammation since I m having a little trouble hearing and the gland on my neck that is directly under my ear feels like a tight little ball. I know I won t be able to go in to see the doctor for a few days at least, but in the meantime, should I be worried? After all, who knows what else might be in there? :S Frightened and amazed, M.P.

My daughter is anemic, and recently discovered she has a high factor viii blood level. She s been short of breath and has had a few episodes where she said it feels like someone is squeezing her heart. She had an EKG and a chest X-ray about a week ago that we re normal. But she just felt the squeezing sensation again. Should she go to the er?
