Hi well come to HCM.
Any chest pain does not mean it is always related to heart. usually in coronary pain
pts face usually becomes pale not flushing, second she had back injury to three weeks
ago, So chaces of injuring chest with back to be ruled out, but if at all you are sure
of heart problem along with aspirin, you can give higher dose of clopidogril 75mg 6 tablets along with ranitidine can be given, you can continue sorbitrate 5mg tablets subligually every 5 minuites till pain sub sides provided BP is good. thanks

call a relative or family, her parents, or the ambulance if you think she is very sick. Call quickly, don´t worry about her resistance, she has a very good daugter who wories about her. Dr. Ungar.

Yes, I am a 47 year old woman who is concerned lately about my overall health. I have been seeing a urologist for the past 4 years regarding gross hematuria or blood in my urine. He has run all sorts of tests to rule things out and cannot determine where the blood is coming from. Upon a recent ultrasound of my kidneys, they found that I also have hemangiomas on my liver. The blood in my urine was originally found by my primary care doctor during a physical. I had been feeling overly tired and still do. I am also hypothyroid. During an MRI of my neck for an unrelated injury, they found I had tumor on my left thyroid gland. It was removed and I was placed on Levoxyl. About a 8 months later and having neck surgery for 3 ruptured discs I began having swallowing problems, a larger tumor was found on my right thyroid. A gastroenterologist removed the gland and said everything was contained and other than trying to regulate my thyroid medicine I am doing well. I then developed a rash on my face. I have been tested 3 times for lupus each time the results are negative thank goodness. My primary care doctor is in the process of checking my thyroid levels again to see if my medicine needs adjusting which seems to happen quite frequently. I am a very active and busy lady and attribute my aches and pains to getting older however lately, I am totally exhausted even after sleeping 7- 8 hours. I have been having chest pains that come and almost feels like a charlie horse in the middle of my chest. My hair is falling out, my bones hurt if that is possible, I am cold all the time, I ve been getting night sweats, my color is pale. I am waiting to be seen this next week by my doctor. I was just curious if a lupus test can show up negative and a patient actually has it or signs of it. Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
