Dear Yolanda
You havnot mentioned your age. It is likely you have such problem due to menopause, neuromuscular disorder, aneamia or calcium deficiency. From Ayurvedic view - Avoid sour, packed, fermented food.Please take sufficient green vegetables, fruits.dasmul quath, sunthi , evecare & palsinuron may be useful to you.
OBGYN Dr. Minoo Bhagia's  Response
Hi Yolanda , what is your age ? I think you should get an ECG done , it can be due to hypertension or any nervous disorder so it is better to see a physician.

For the last 5 months, I have had severe pain. I went to the ER in March and they said I had DDD of 3 discs and sciatica. My left leg hurts from the hip to knee and is numb from knee to toes. There is occasional shooting pain all the way down. My left arm goes numb. My right hip hurts. I get burning between my shoulder blades. And I get a pain behind my right ear that goes down my neck. All this also gives me headaches. I have tried a chiropractor but feel it isn t helping. I work at a desk all day. I get up and walk/stretch as much as I can during the day. It hurts to sit, stand, and lay. I feel like it s getting worse and don t really know why or what I should do.

My 7 y/o daughter keeps c/o her arms and legs hurting and she wants me to pull them to make them feel better. This has been going on for months. She is c/o headaches as well. Sometimes it does not seem to bother her as she will run and play but at least once or twice a day she complains.

My parents brought me to the emergency room because I was having chest pains, shortness of breath, I was getting tired very easily (after taken a couple steps), and having severe body sensitivity to touch. They made me go through the triage center and when they saw my heart rate was reaching up to 146 they admitted me. While in the ER my heart rate was maximum 186 and the doctors there could not find anything through the EKG, X-rays, and all the other tests they had administrered to help them find something to explain my rapid heart rate and tiredness. Well, I was admitted as an impatient the next day after going home and having diarrhea and vomiting all night. I stayed in the hospital a total of 3 1/2 days and they could not find anything wrong with me internally, from what they could see.

My general doctor who is also a cardiologist has already done a 2D echo-cardiogram and has put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours, hoping something would show up. the holter monitor showed that my heart rate goes up to 190 and he is so puzzled as to what it could be. He is thinking I have had this my whole life but only started noticing these symptoms now. He now wants to admit me in a hospital that specializes in cardio issues and is already consulting with anther doctor but they have not made a final decision yet as to what tests they want me to do and where they want to send me.

What could this be?

Hello Dr. Recent days I am feeling that during early mornings some days, my heart beat goes little high and due to that i feel any of the body part ( hand, or leg ) vibrating kind of sense. After i feel such changes, i wake up immediately and as soon as I sat on the bed, the heart beat becomes normal. I have consulted a Cardiologist and he has taken ECG and told me that I am normal, but he suggested couple of tablets in the morning and night to be taken. But still some time I feel this symptoms again. I have high BP taking tablets regularly. most of the time the BP is around 130/90. I am going for morning walk/exercise once in three days regularly. Please suggest what Should I do more to reduce my BP and get rid of fast hear beat? regards Ram
