Hi,for the last two days I have been experiencing a little numbness and tingling in my left hand. Also, I think maybe I have a bit of a heart flutter. There is no real pain in my chest just a little discomfort. I have been quite stressed and unable to sleep throughout the night. I am starting to worry as I dont want to have a heart attack or anything of that nature. Is this something I should see a doctor for?

I have seen two doctors for chest pain. I have had stress test tilt table test and angiogram done. One doctor says that it is coronary artery spasms and the other says its angina. I quit my stressful job, and haven t had an attack in awhile. But in the last week I have had two attack. They seem to be getting worse. I went to the ER for this last one and they said everything looked ok. Can you have a mini heart attack and not know? I am still experiencing chest pain, but don t want to go back to the ER.

Hi Doctor Samuel, I went through menopause with no sweating. It happened maybe two times, that is all. And I never sweat after that. Now since a year ago suddenly I started to sweat profusely with every move I make. I sweat so much that I am ashamed to go anywhere because my cloths are wet on me and sweat is dripping from my body and hair. I have had three heart attacks and implanted four stents. I also have severe spine degeneration and spine stenosis so I am not able to walk so much without pain. On top of that I also have fibromyalgia which flairs up with every change of the weather and air pressure. The arthritis took over almost all my body. I should also mention the nerves pain in my legs , hands , and the back, and diabetes. I am overweight I not able to lose. So I am a very complex a patient. My doctors cannot diagnose me at all. Please help! Anna Gromek

hello. was wondering if i should be concerned. my mother has atrial fibrillation as was given digoxin and metroprolol a few weeks ago. a cardiologist that checked her two days ago said that her heart rate is to slow & that those drugs weren t helping (she was feeling dizzy upon exertion...i.e walking 2-3 mins). now her heart is racing (approx 100-105 bpm and i m concerned. she says she feels fine but does this mean she s at increased risk of heart attack or stroke?
