Julie, I want to say first, what a very strong young woman you are! I am so happy that you were able to beat the anorexic disorder! I commend you on this! Hun, I want you to make an appointment with a good cardiologist. There are many reasons for a person to have chest pains; however, we are NOT to ignore them! I have had chest pains and when they ran one simple test, they saw it was my mitral valve. I only take medication for this as it does not threaten anything. In as much, I am not going to even try to guess why your heart is hurting. I just wanted to point out that some heart pains can be simple problems. Even so, you need to know! Julie, your life has turned around now and for the better! I am thrilled for you. Do you believe in God and the power of prayer? I do. Please allow me to pray for you as you seek an answer to your medical situation. I ask God to guide you as you seek a good cardiologist and to give you wisdom, in this search. May our Lord God be with you and surround you with His peace as you continue to heal. I pray you know His love as Julie, noone can love you like God does as He created your very soul! Remember this and always lean on Him as He will never leave you. God bless you, If ever you want to talk, e-mail me, gail

Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.

Tightening the Tummy Iam 51 years old and weigh 77kgs.Recently I have lost 6 kgs and my weight stabilized at 77 kgs which works out to a BMI of 25 as my height is 5’10”.I maintain regular exercise -aerobics,strength training,abdominal exercises and evening walk of 4 kms.I eat selectively without oil,less Non veg,less sweets,more fruit and water ,steamed vegetables,sprouts,Almonds(4 nos) and 1 egg white.When I go to gym I take whey protein of 30 gms. My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
