Hey Debbie, I would advise you take him in ASAP. Tell him that I took my 26 year old boyfriend in on Friday and now he has been admitted to the cardiac ward for further testing. It may be that he has a viral infection that is causing the fluid to build up around his heart. It can lead to death if not treated promptly. This is what they suspect with my boyfriend but they haven't confirmed it as of yet. Heart disease and conditions are not selective based on age. Wishing you all the best!

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
