Something is causing my heart to hurt, kindly help me

I ve been crying and crying nonstop for the past four weeks or so, every day, often in public though I keep it very discreet. In the past twelve hours or so, I ve felt my heart , definitely my heart, actually hurting. A small, dull though almost sharp pain happens every minute or so, though sometimes subsequently twice or thrice within ten seconds. What is this? I am 21, though I look 18. I just want to make sure it s not permanent. No, I haven t been crying over the pain of my heart, literally, but I believe my feelings and the physical effects may have begun to take their toll. I m not randomly depressed. I m crying because my closest friend of many years and girlfriend, now ex-, is no longer in love with me.

I am 27 years old. the NP in my drs office told me a couple of years ago that I had a heart murmur. nothing was done about it. My dr. never noticed even tho I wore a holter monitor one night until the np said something about it. He gave me adipex last thurs. the past couple of days ive been really tired, kind of lightheaded, and a little bit of pain in my chest. when i just walk say to the kitchen at a normal pace my legs hurt kind of like ive been walking on them all day nonstop...I guess they just feel tired. I have been walking a mile a day since last friday..I didnt walk today tho cause I have felt so bad. Could it be from the adipex?

Hello, I ve been suffering from dizziness (all day), constricted pupils, nausea, heart palpitations, & shortness of breath. Recently I had some kind of event that I can scarcely described. It felt like my heart was fibrillating for about ten seconds & I almost lost consciousness. Could this be stress & anxiety? Or something more serious I should get checked out? I have a history of depression, anxiety, & mental illness in my family. Thank you for your help.

Hi, I have EXTREME pain during BM and for several hours thereafter. It is affecting all I do. I'm taking stool softeners and putting lanacane on the anus in hopes this helps. I also take warm baths after a BM to try to quickly sooth the pain.

My questions are: how long will this heal if it is a fissure? I am a teacher and will be returning to work in 2 short weeks. I can't see me functioning as a teacher w/ this pain that lasts all day.

How soon should I see any improvement?

As you likely hear often...this pain is INSANE!

other misc info: does seem to be some throbbing/spasming, some blood in stool (nothing I would call 'a lot'), I was working outside in 100degree weather for a few days, drank lots of water and thought maybe the bending over while working caused the fissure.

The pain started 4 days ago so I got prep-H but that didn't help. On the 2nd day I had a BM that came out quickly and maybe harshly, then while still sitting had another that was very loose 'creamy' (texture, not color). After that, I was in incredible pain, up all night walking around the house trying to relax...slept from about 5am to 7am. Went to walk in clinic, they couldn't see any external hemerroids. Did digital exam but I couldn't take the pain, so they pulled out. He tested for blood and there was some.

can't take the pain any longer. will it subside in the next 5-10 days so I can prepare for teaching? should I let my district know I'll likely be out the first few weeks?

Looking forward to relief!!!

thank you
