I agree that you should see a doctor. Pain in the heart should be going from the centre of your chest and radiating outwards and to your left side. I recently experienced chest pains, and they did not match these symptoms. They felt like pressure in the chest and pain in the general area of heart or stomach. The 3 different diagnoses from three different doctors were; - Stomach problem- I took pills for stomach and pancreas (don't know why)- nothing happened; - Muscle "contracture"( not sure of the english word) in the chest- the theory was that I had a pulled muscle in my chest(?) and it was causing pressure- muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory were useless; - Anxiety attack- took anxiety pills for 10 days- problem solved, probably issues regarding my about to be born Baby- everything turned out fine thank you-it's a girl. Bottom line is, they all checked the heart first and then tried to find other solutions. You should check it too. It might not be anything, but the heart is just too important not to check.

I have a consistent pain mostly on my left side. It becomes more severe cramping and pulsing pains almost like somebody taking their fists and twisting it into my left side as hard as they can. It feels like I have a rock in my back. I tried to see a doctor about it is and she treated me like a hypochondriac because I told her it felt like a severe kidney infection. Which I have had, so I know how it feels. I feel on the ice 2 1/2 months back, tore muscles in my left shoulder and broke my right wrist. I also have a labour intensive job. The thing is, this pain just popped up this morning, and I have been having the chills. I mentioned that it could be a kidney infection. She said, does it hurt when you pee I was like, no, but I know what feels like and it really hurts She did and abdominal examination ... No pain But the throbbing rock like pain still persists in my left side of my mid back Over the course of the day the pain got worse and the painful Attacks are more persistent. She is a student doctor... Did take my temperature or nothing just began saying, oh well... You could have an std... That would cause it.. Anyways... Do you think it s just muscle tension when it just popped up over the course of the day? I also had a migraine for three days prior to my back pain. Normally I don t take medication for pain because I have a very high pain tolerance. And this is my doctors treat me like a hypochondriac Because I have sit there with a broken are calm and nonchalant.

I have pain that feels like a fist pushing and turning my left kidney. I did have 2 stones removed surgically from the left kidney 7 years ago, but the pain isn t shooting down, it s just the horrible knotting burning feeling. Could a stone be caught in it?

doctor1 MD

at first I wasn t too concerned about just the pain ive been having on the left because I have had kidney stones several times in my life. The pain is on my side I quess you could say as low as the waist area but more toward the side and and sorter toward my back. I use icy hot and that does help with the pain. What has me worried because with kidney stones I never did this or didn t notice, but for almost two weeks now when I urinate it has a brownish look to it and its usually a light yellow or very clean looking. it doesn t look like bloody urine. Its a brownish, like a dirty water look kinda. I guess that s the best way of describing it. I don t know if one has to do with the other but I have also notice that sometimes when I move a certain way or sit down I find myself saying oh, my back hurts. It not unbearable just unconfortable and like I said I didn t think much first couple of times but its every time I go to use the bathroom. It doesn t hurt to urinate at all. I just feel a uncomfortable feeling on my left side a little above my waist area toward the back just a little. I know it has something to do with my kidneys and im getting a little worried. Can you help with what I explained to you. I hope I made since explaining it to you

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

doctor1 MD

My resting heart rate is unusually fast and even if i just walk up the stairs my heart is racing like ive just ran a mile. When i exercise i can feel my heartbeat in my chin and other strange places aswell as having red, blotchy skin all over my body, mostly my face and arms. Also, after exercise, if i open my mouth i can hear my heartbeat, its like a ticking noise. My mouth goes very very dry too. Finally ive noticed that if i lie down and place something across my chest for example a book or ipad, i can see my ipad wobble alot from my heartbeat, is any of this normal??

doctor1 MD

My rest heart rate is typically around 100 and my blood pressure is typically very good. I am now taking Bisoprol 5mg for atrial tachycardia. My last read had my rest heart rate at 94 but my blood pressure has dropped to 101/57. Should I be concerned?

I am a 23 year old female, studying medicine. For past 8 months, i have been having some episodes of heart 'dysfunctions' that now have turned constant. I need help in knowing what is the condition.
It started last may when one day i started feeling so weak that i just could not get up and was having a splitting headache, when i measured my BP was 90/55mmHg ( before it was always 120/80mmHg). I was having palpitations, bradycardia at times, tachycardia at times, extreme weakness, sweating ( especially on scalp) after sleeping after headache. I was also having light sleep.
Slowly, these episodes became constant. Now I am feeling weak all times, light headed if sitting or standing for long, headache (thumping with constant heaviness), inability to sleep, tightness in chest, chest pain sometimes, tachycardia at any normal activity (walking, doing some tidy up), BP is still low. I also get dry cough on breathing sometimes.
So i got a holter done for 24 hours, got following:
- sinus tachycardia( 110- 120) almost all day with some normal rate in between, my heart rate dropped to 50 in middle of night ( reason causing me to wake up from sleep and not to sleep again) and it remained like that for 3 hours
- average pulse -81
- my heart rate jumped to 179 per min when i climbed stairs ( 9 floors, easily climbed by others), breathing became laboured, headache with blacking out sensations ( i did not faint though)
- I have some abnormalities in lead I, II and III ( looks like left axis deviation as lead I is showing highest peaks and is moving away from III ) even the avL and avF looks weird, QTc>450ms is 47%, no ST deviation, no T wave abnormalities
I also have tachypnea (26-28 per min) and accentuation of Pulmonary part of second heart sound. I also have slight edema on my feet ( bluish tinge)
I also did a blood work up, I do not have thyroid problems or anemia
I need some advice on what i might be having, so as to proceed further on treatment.
