I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

My heart rate is 35. I am scared. I have also had amenorrhea for the past 3 years.

I arrived home today from the hospital after spending a day in the ER and the night in the hospital. I was discharged this afternoon. I was sent to the ER after going to my school clinic because of fatigue and dizziness . My resting heart rate is 35-38. When I get up and move around, it goes up normally. I was seen by a cardiologist who said that I could go home because I was healthy, my blood and urine tests showed no abnormalities. except a low count in platelets and white blood cells. Now I am getting really scared. I think I m imagining chest pains. I have also had amenorrhea for the past 3 years. I am athletic, but nowhere near an Olympic level. I m a 21-year-old woman, 5 3 and weigh 128 lbs. Thanks for any advice/suggestions! Yikes. Some people say it s totally normal, others that I should be dead. HELP

This is NOT normal to have a heart rate that low and you should DEFINITELY see another cardiologist. You need a complete cardiac workup. If possible go to a teaching hospital where there are residents and medical students who are more inclined to help you find out what is wrong. Have you had a holter monitor on for 24 hours? Did you have an EKG? Amenorrhea is also not normal, either is a low platelet and white blood cells. Get another doctor or go to a holistic health practitioner..........Good Luck...............

I had irregular periods since my puberty which happened when I was 14. Now I am 26, weight: 50, height:5 2 and got married last year. I went to consult a doctor months back because of my severe menstrual pain and thus diagonised with Poly-cystic ovaries. I was asked to take ovral-l for 3 months and wait to see whether my periods get regular the 4th month without any medication & if not then I have to consult with a Gynecologist again. As my periods didnt appear the 4th month, I was prescribed again with Diane 35 & Metformin since I had severe acne problem and sugar as a hereditary (even though I wasn t diagonized with sugar). I am taking these pills for the first month. It had been 5 days after I stopped taking Diane 35, but still I havent got my periods. What will be the cause? What should I do? since I started Diane 35, I am having a heavy hair fall.

I currently have amenorrhea. I am 16 years old, almost 5'5", and around 115-116 pounds. At one time, I reached a weight of around 147 pounds and then began to rapidly lose weight over a period of 5 months, sometimes not using the healthiest methods. I don't think I had developed an ED, but my caloric intake was too low. After reaching a low of 112-113 pounds, I increased my caloric intake and I hope to gain some more. I get enough protein (50-60 g per day), enough calcium (1300 mg or more per day) and I have significantly increased my fat intake, although I should probably increase it more. I have not ruled out other causes for my amenorrhea. Plus, I was an active tennis player, but now that I'm on off-season, I'm pretty much sedentary. When, at what weight, do you think my period should return?
