Fatigue = Not enough or No oxygen being supplied. Heart attack = blockage of blood (that carries Oxygen) to the heart SO Yes it def. sufferes from "fatigue" Not the kind of fatigue you'd want though.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I am 59 years old and generally in good health. I have been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid for the third time, first in 2001 then 2006 and now 2011. This time my symptoms are completely different. I went to my GP thinking my thyroid had become underactive. I am desperately fatigued and constantly cold. I have the tremor and fast heart beat as before but this time my hair is like straw and my skin itches. I have been referred to the Consultant at the hospital and I have been on 20mg Carbimazole for a week. I am confused by the symptoms. Does this happen sometimes? If so - why?

hello, I m kirsty and I am 19 years old, around 5 months ago i woke up feeling this out of it/none existent feeling that has since never gone away I ve been to doctor after doctor in that time to a&e twice and put on a various amount of meds to no prevail I am at my wits end, my symptoms make me sound crazy and a lot of my doctors are passing it off, I am currently waiting to see a neurologist and a jaw specialist my symptoms are Fatigue/weakness brain fog/feeling de-realized loss of hearing eye sight deterioration/ floaters light sensitivity loss of emotional feeling memory fog unprovoked eye movement twitching muscles migraines/headaches stiff jaw/grinding noises in jaw/sometimes pain feeling sick after eating racing heart pounding threw out whole body(more in my head) occasional facial numbness sleeping all day and night confusion I am at my wits end, I am very scared every day is such a struggle and i spend most of them crying, i feel lost in my own home, I feel like I ve been drugged 24/7 and I feel lost and dazzed, like I m in a constant stare Previouse to my symptoms I suffered an eating disorder (anorexia binge and purge subtype) but as soon as I recovered became weight restored and eat like any other person all of this happened, I have read up on a lot of different things trying to fiqure out what s going on, I understand de realization and depersonalization, but my physical symptoms especially my hearing loss and jaw seem indicate other wise, Could it possibly be lymes disease as I do have two young cats? I don t know what my next step would be I ve tried to be put in hospital but due to my vital signs being ok it s not possible I have had blood tests which came out ok, but the first set I had done in A&E indicated higher white blood cells, and they didn t really know what to do so they diagnosed me with labrynthitis and prescribed me a weeks dosage of 500mg of amoxcillin, which made no difference, No one knows what to do with me, they seem to be putting it all down to anxiety which is driving me mad, I ve suffered depression and anxiety my entire life and I ve never had any health issues before my eating disorder. Someone please give me some sort of indication as to what I should do I feel helpless and hopeless. I m very scared and very suicidal due to this mystery illness I seem to be suffering.

Good Evening, Im a very frustrated 29 year old. Recently I am struggling with chest pain . It started just over 2 weeks ago, it radiates into my shoulder and left arm. I have experienced light headedness and fatigue . A great deal of fatigue actually. I even sleep in the afternoons sometimes now and that is not normal for me. I am a healthy weight 136lbs, 5 2 . I get breathless sometimes during conversation, its very strange - it just comes over me. 6 months ago, at my fitted, i went to the gym everyday. I had a very uncomfortable situation on a treadmill where my heart beated very fast and into my throat, causing it difficult for me to swallow with chest pain so bad I had to go bathroom to vomit . My partner assumed i pulled a muscle in my chest but I knew that was not the case. It got left and kind of subsided and now it is back with vengeance. I mainly notice this pain whilst resting in front of the tv. My heart beats irratically sometimes for no good reason and then sometimes I find it difficult even finding a pulse. It even clicks sometimes - I thought I was going nuts! ha! After this pain had started happening I was getting curious of my blood pressure so started checking it regularly at drug store. I am a vegetarian and have been for over a year. However even before this my blood pressure has always been no lower than 90/70, no higher than 120/70. I checked it the other day and it was 90/70, by chance I was shopping the day after and thought id check it again just for the hell of it and it was 120/108. I didn;t quite know what to think - I have never seen my Diastolic this high. So when I went to the doctor and he took my blood pressure and he said it was good - I mentioned that it is sneaky and going up andy down irratically for no good reason. I eat well and at the time of me taking my pressure, i was calm and relaxed both times. Very confusing. The chest pain is the absolute worry for me. I can feel it is not right. It started a few weeks back as a pressure as if someone was pushing their fist into my chest very hard. Now it swings between that and sharp pain you cant pinpoint. My arm radiates and hurts when my chest does. The doctor did an EKG and chest x-ray. My chest x-ray cam back normal and so did blood tests, including negative pregnancy test. However he did find a heart murmur in which was not found by another doctor during a routine physical 6 months ago. The EKG came back borderline abnormal. The doctor took it very seriously which eased me. He said with the chest pain and the EKG I should see a Cardiologist for additional tests. I have gone as far as to look online at normal EKG graphs and compare my results to them. It looks as though my highs are pretty low in comparison and I believe he mentioned either a T wave inversion or P wave in parts. :/ Ok so I have seen the cardiologist, they could only do an echo that day - the echo came back good. However I do have excess tissue on one of my valves which he explained is causing the clicking sound I feel (so I m not crazy after all :/). He didn t seem concerned after this and almost shrugged off additional tests in a sense of hinting that maybe I wait a while. Its strange but the kind of impression I got was come back if things get worse. Never the less I was not happy with this Cardiologist anyway and I am booked to have a Holter monitor and Stress test on the 19th. My question is - if at all you can give me advice into what you think is wrong I would really appreciate it. I do not suffer from anxiety, nor am I dramatic by any means. All I know is everyday is different and I have been brought to tears by the chest pain today. Its actually beginning to affect my life and really need an answer to why I am feeling this way. If you could give me any advice at all - I would really appreciate it. Thank you - Crystal

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
Regards,
