I am a 67 yr. old female with RA. I am having some lung breathing problems, shortness of breath, the last digit of my fingers on both hands filled with blood where they felt like they would burst open. I put them in a pale of very warm water. It has helped considerably. Is this a problem with my heart or what else could ite? Ms. wallace

My mother who is 58 yrs old, 5-5 120 lbs is having tightness in her chest, numbness in legs sometimes, and shortness of breath, she thinks she has a pinched nerve also. Her doctors said it could be a result of general anxiety, and she has been diagnosed with the early stages of osteoporosis and they suggested ischemia to her heart, lack of oxygen I gather. What tests can be done so that she can find out once and for all what it actually is? She had EKG tests, came back regular in terms of her not having a heart attack after she had an episode where she had to pull the car over and EMT had to come and take her to the hospital. She had blood tests, cholesterol is fine; EKG was fine; but they said she was experiencing signs of ischemia at the hospital, which from my research seems very serious, but only told her to take asperin, and xanax for the anxiety. Does anyone else have a take on these symptoms? Could the tightness, or heaviness in chest be related to a pinched nerve more than a heart disease, or build up in the artery? Any help or suggestions for tests would be appreciated.

I have a leg ache on my right side that goes up and down from the hip. I had MRI and it was determined that I may have a slight blockage that causes the pain. Could it be Factor 5 lite as this is in our family...(my brother, niece and maybe more). Please give some opinions. Changed my mind....I do not need the answer as it is going to cost me ...and I do not have money. Thanks anyway.
