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.

X- RAY REPORT 9-11-2009 Chest Radiograph ( PA View ) Revealed :- Both lung fields show multiple reticulonodular infiltration Giving honey comb appearance with tendency to cystic changes for correlation with clinical data end previous films. Pathology Report Material: C.T. guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of a lung nodule & liver focal lesions. Date of aspiration: 24/11/2009 CLINICAL PICTURE: C.T. guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of a lung nodule & liver focal lesion smeared over eight slides. MICROSCOPY: Cellular lung smears formed of many groups of epitheloid cells having large nuclei and abundant esinphilic cytoplasm. Many groups of hyperplastic bronchial cells exhibiting mild-moderate atypia were detected. The background was infiltrated with chronic inflammatory ceels mainly lymphocytes with moderate number of uniuncleated histiocytes. Few multinucleated giant cells were observed. The liver aspirate showed many groups of liver cells having bland cntral nuclei over background having infiltrated with lymphocytes. DIAGNOSIS: LUNG NODULE & LIVER FOCAL LESION: C.T. guided Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) Lymphoroliferative disorder suggestive for granulomatous inflammation for immunophenotyping confirmation. PATHOLOGY REPORT Microscopic: Examination of the films received many red cells, many scattered small, intermediate and large lymphoid cells with very few polmonuclear leucocytes. Diagnosis: Lung nodule and liver focal lesions, FINDING ARE IN FAVOUR OF MALIGNANT LYMPHOMA. -CASE FOR TISSUE BIOPSY FOR IMMUNOPHENOTYPING. PATHOLOGY REPORT GROSS: - Referred 8 FNAC smear slides, labeled by patient s name. four of the slides are labeled for site as liver and the other 4 as lung. All slides are examined and re-enclosed. - Three of the slides are de-stained after routine examination, then immunostained for LCA. CK & NSE. MICROSCOPY: - Liver and lung FNAC smears show blood and scattered groups of small, medium and large round cells. The FNAC smears also rich in neutrophils. - The immunostained smears show negative staining for CK & NSE and positive staining for LCA. Conclusion: Cytology slides ; re-staining for immunophenotyping: FINDINGS ARE CONSISTENT WITH NON-HODGKIN S LYMPHOMA ; MIXED SMALL AND LARGE CELL. PATHOLOGY REPORT One of the referred FNAC smear slides is de-stained after routine Examination, then immunostained for CD 20 as requested MICROSCOPY The immunostained smear shows a majority of CD 20 â??megative cells and few â?? likely reactive- positively stained small lymphocytes. CONCLUSION: Cytology slides ; restining for CD 20 Most cells are CD 20 negative. Scattered positive (likely reactive) small lymphocytes. Complete Blood Count Ref.
