Breakfast is not related to heart attacks or the like. It just gives you energy to keep going during the day after a spell of m about 12 hours which is longest in the 24 hour cycle during which you don't eat anything. I t may be possible for a person, if he exerts too much without a breakfast, to get a stroke due to exhaustion on empty stomach. It is like you want to run your mixer grinder without electricity.

doctor1 MD

Hi there! I am a 60yr old female and for the past 4-5 weeks I have been experiencing fast heartbeats especially when I am lying in bed at night I can hear it beating like heavy drumbeats - and I notice I have been getting tired aas well- e.g. I can t stay up as late as I used to and feel really sleepy all of a sudden at times I can t keep my eyes open - apart from this I am healthy -blood pressure and sugar levels fine but cholesterol just a bit on the high side. I weigh 65 kgs(lost about 5 kgs recently) -an reasonably active as I work in the garden and walk a lot. Should I be worried about getting a heart attack/ what treatment should I be looking at?? Thank you for your time. Patrice

Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

I am 63, weight around 13stones 12, and usually have normal or slightly low blood pressure but my partner who has diabetes and other problems, used his blood pressure monitor on me earlier and it showed 165/89 and a pulse rate of 66

I will make an appointment with my doctor early next week but am concerned, as I haven't felt well for a long time, I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and due to personal set up here, sleep during the day and am up all night. I am under a lot of stress both personally and financially and have ocd, I hoard. I cannot get the right help for this but currently having counselling. There is a lot of heart disease in both sides of my family, at least three people on my dad's side have/had pacemakers and my mother died from her third heart attack, and had angina. She became diabetic in her 60s and I am just the same body shape as her, apple shaped. Because of my constant tiredness I can't walk far or exercise but try to eat fairly well with lots of veg and fruit. I do eat the wrong things too but never much salt and I don't smoke or drink. I have been given vit d jabs twice in the last 18 months and have Adcal for the vit d too altho I don't take them every day now as I was concerned about heart problems connected with taking too much calcium.

Should I be worried? Could this be diabetes causing problems?



thanks

I have had migraine headaches since I was 12 years old; I am now 65 years old. Everyone in my family has them, both maternal and paternal sides. We can trace them back to my great-grandmother. I have been using Imitrex since it came on the market....
