Hi Cesar,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The symptoms you have described seems to be of Migraine with aura. The CTs done twice was negative, that means there is no brain tumor, so relax do not think much about it. I would advice you to consult a good neurologist and discuss your problems with him.

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Nothing has stopped the vomiting and I m looking for other options to relieve it as well as some advice re: dehydration. I m very tired, weak, dizzy, get light headed and things go black when I stand.

I suffered from a spontaneous pneumothorax that healed after 4 days 2 weeks ago. My doctor said it had to do with smoking. I quit smoking, but an hour ago I took 2 hits out of a vaporizer, my back around the site of the collapsed lung started hurting, the pain has disipated for the most part. But when i move around it sounds like bubbling in the area. I had an x-ray yesterday and my doctors said my chest was fine, my lungs were 100% a ok. I also spoke to my doctor about my anxiety disorder and that i haven t been taking my meds, she told me that my pain was all in my head and due to my anxiety disorder. I am considering going to the emergency room, but if i go and it turns out my lung is collapsed again, they might put a chest tube in, which would completely ruin my life. i m 19 just started living on my own have a job and take summer classes

I have A Fib. I had a cardiac ablation. The procedure should have taken 4 hours. It took my Dr. 7 and 1/2 hours and he told me he could only do 3, as one part was too close to my wind pipe and he did not want to chance nicking it. I am currently taking Metoprolol, Tikosin, and Digoxin. I am experiencing A Fib off and on, dizziness, tingling in my left thumb and forefinger, and occasional heartburn. What could be causing these symptoms?
