3 days ago, I had a bad spell of light-headedness, dizziness, naseau and heart-area discomfort. My doc did an ekg, that was norm, but why after 3 days is my heart still not feeling right? I don t have pain, but it is still a heavy,dull feeling. I m 31 and female, what could this be?

That doctor is taking, you lightly sometimes there is a heart attack without any change in EKG called NSTEMI (Non ST elevation myocardial infarction). Report to a nearest heart care/ER, and get blood work done for heart attack.

Hi I have been very light headed and dizzy for about a week i have not felt myself extremely tired and out of it, my period started yesturday but i dont think it has anything to do with it because it has been happening for a while. I have a constant pain right under my belly button to the left, I also have severe chest pains all on my left side and in my back to the left, I feel very faint and like i have a lot of gas bubbles near my heart as well as in my stomache. I have also been having really bad diahrrea and feel like I am going to pass out every time I have a bowel movement. PLEASE HELP!!

I smoked marijuana with some meth over the weekend and didn t sleep saturday night. From sunday night I have been suffering bad anxiety , struggling to calm down, light headed & dizzy spells. I has my heart rate & blood pressure checked today & they were fine. When will this go away or what can I do? It seems to have eased tonight but am hoping I will be better tomorrow. It has been a scary & horrible experience - no drugs, never again.

Hello, I don t have health insurance so I can t see a doctor for random stuff like this. For the past 4 months I ve been getting really weird dizzy spells and lightheadedness... I m almost always tired no matter how much sleep I get And just recently I ve been having a weird metallic flavor in my mouth and I ve been shaky. Do you have any ideas on what might be wrong with me? Anytime I mention any of these things to a doctor they look at me like I m an idiot... they don t give me any answers and they don t ask me any questions.. they just change the subject. Maybe its due to the fact that I don t have any insurance? Any suggestions or information would help! Thank you :)
