Every few days, I get this... spiralling numb pain on the left side of my back, just around my shoulder blade . It feels like someone is taking their hand and digging their fingernails into my back in a circular pattern, and it also feels like pins and needles. Today, at work, it started doing that, and it started hurting a lot. Then, I started sweating and I felt really hot, and the pain got so bad that my vision started going a bit blurry and I couldn t focus on what I was doing. It started feeling like there was something wrapped around my body, pushing on my chest from all directions, and restricting my ability to breathe. I tried to ignore it and concentrate on what I was supposed to be doing, and it went away after about twenty minutes, although the pain/ numbness in my back keeps coming back. Is there something wrong with my heart or my back? I wasn t stressing myself at work, or doing anything strenuous. I was counting stock.
I've had many CAT scans and heart moniters in the past to find out if there are any coronary issues. All thats been found is SVT. Sometimes it's better than others but on a more frequent basis my heart seems to pound pretty hard. The actual lub beat feels like it's going to pound out of my chest and I'm just sitting down. Many times this leads to panic and shortness of breath. I've been told there is nothing I can do about it. Does this mean I have a higher probability of heart failure? How can I control my heart pace? Are there any techniques other than breath control?
My daughter was in the hospital this week with blood pressure 200/148. she was there for two days and they sent her home with 148/98. She was taking 10 mg lisinopril and said to take two. She has monitored her blood pressure and the lower number keeps going up. It is now 148/119. She has no chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. They said the high pressure was due to a combination of meds particularly with phenylephrine. She also takes Keppra and Flonaise.
Does she need to go to emergency or can she wait to see if her blood pressure stablizes. thank you.
My daughter is 32 weeks pregnant. For the past couple of weeks, she has been experiencing shortness of breath, chest/rib pain and feeling really tired. Yesterday it was discovered she has a heart murmur. She has never had cardiac problems up to now. She was told to go home and "just lay around and do nothing" until an echo can be done next week to determine how strong her heart is at this time. How dangerous is this condition to her and the baby?
I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
My pulmonologist said tests he did indicated need for echo stress test to rule out ischemic heart disease and referred me to a cardiology practice who scheduled the test. They even got approval from ins. co. I'm having symptoms and anxious (but...
