ALL STUPID PEOPLE LISTEN!! The rest of you read for entertainment purposes. Ummm, okay. I was not going to write anything but apparently my grandma was right, the internet is evil. It allows any knucklehead to prescribe vasodilating medication to any neurotic female anywhere on Earth. Yes, it is true that females do tend to have weird cardiac symptoms. Yes, it is possible for a 29 year old to have one. Should this person take aspirin? Well, she could if she knew how much to take. Do you? I am a licensed EMT in the state of Indiana. If I was called to your house for the symptoms you're having I would give you ASA and suggest you go to the ER to get checked out. Do you know WHY I would give it to you? Not gonna tell you how much because your protocols for treatment may be different in the state you're in. Are you allergic to aspirin? No? What if you developed an allergy to it from the last time taking it? Would you be able to recognize the symptoms of an allergic reaction? What do you do? Secondly, DO NOT EVER TAKE NITRO THAT IS NOT PRESCRIBED TO YOU. You could die. Nitroglycerin is a potent vasodilator. You would have to be a bigger retard than that guy who tried to rob a bank with his hand in the shape of a gun. If you are taking certain medications already, taking nitro with them could kill you in MINUTES. What is it indicated for? Do you know what an indication is? What is it contraindicated for? Do you know what that is? If you don't know, that's fine. What's not fine is listening to advice from people who don't know either. Now I applaud those of us who take an aggressive stance against disease but let's do it responsibly. Or let me put is this way, if you don't have a medical certification: SHUT UP!

He was released from hospital monday but since he has been home he has had loss of vision in right eye cannot feel his right leg at most times and when he can he says it feels like it is bursting.

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination.
I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
