What could this be? It only tends to happen when I have alot of stress on my heart. For example : I hardly got any sleep today, my dad got rushed to the hospital, my mom caused my anxiety to sky rocket etc. I went to lay down after talking to my dad in the hospital, and my heart started racing really fast, but I wasn t breathing hard or anything. Is this serious? Or only because of Anxiety? Please help, I m really worried.

I used to smoke weed everyday for about 2 years straight with no problems then i tried that k-2 shit and i started freaking out and my heart was racing so fast i couldent control it. after about 8 months of not doing anything (because i scared myself so bad i tried weed again and felt exactly how i did when i smoke that k-2 stuff my heart was racing and i felt like i was going to have a heart attack. My arms were going numb and then i went for a walk which calmed me a bit (after pacing up and down my friends driveway taking in deep breaths with my heart on my chest for a half hour), but the thought juts kept creeping in my mind about my heart and i couldent get rid of it. This now happens even when im sober ( I really think that i have just scared myself so bad and that its all psychological) but any advice would be great!

I m sixteen years old. and about a year ago, this thing happened to me that was so wierd. I was sitting down, with a couple of friends when my heart started racing as though i just ran a mile! like it was beating super fast. it lasted about maybe less than a minute. That was the first time i experienced it. After that Ill get it sometimes out of the blue, usually when I laugh, then my heart just starts going. I panic, and probably that just makes it beat faster but idk, i dont feel dizzy, or anything. theres no pain. i just put my hand to my heart and its beatingggg suppeerrrr fastt. im scared. its happened about 5 times already? in about a year or a lil more. But sometimes ill hold my breath and then my heart rate goes back to its normal way, doesnt always work tho. Any idea what it might be???

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.
