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.

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.

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I have chronic a-fib, 24/7. It was previously controlled with different meds following a cardio version, but that is no longer effective. I now live at 60 of altitude in Houston, and take yearly trips, or more often, to New Mexico, Colorado and/or Wyoming, where I grew up. The altitudes vary from 8500 or 9000 to 7200 and down to about 6000 . I am a 73 yr old female, overweight and fairly sedentary due to exercise fatigue from the a-fib. I am contemplating a vacation of 2 weeks or less at an altitude of 7000 or 8000 . We would be making the ascent by automobile, and I don t anticipate any hiking or climbing. My blood pressure is well-controlled at about 120/70 but my heart rate is obviously erratic and usually rapid at 80-90. My question is whether this is something I can safely do? I had an echocardiogram, an ECG and a semiannual checkup with my cardiologist about 3 weeks ago.

I am having constant thudding heartbeats with irregular or skipped beats.
This has been going on for the last five hours . I can't sleep. It has been bad for the last two days but not constant as it is now . I'm worried. I can't fall asleep . I seem to lurch awake even as I drift off with another powerful rushing feeling of thudding in my chest and more skipped beats.
I have been complaining to my doctor for 12 years of irregular beats. I have had several ECG and scans and they always tell me there's nothing wrong with the functioning of my heart but I can't ignore these symptoms that don't go away. I believe my stressing over them makes them worse but it's a vicious circle. I am meant to be on Citalopram but took one tablet and woke up in the middle of the night clenching my jaw with skipping beats . Looking up the side effects/contra indications it says should not take if suffer any heart rhythms problems. Why is my doctor giving me these ? So I daren't take them for fear of making things worse but I do need an anxiolytic as prescribed.
