Be careful taking so much Apirin each day..it is not just a pain reliever..it is also what is termed..anti-coagulant. It thins the blood and makes you suceptible to bleeding and easily bruising. My advice as a registered nurse is to go to your doctor and explain what has been going on. They can then order the appropriate blood work up and talk to you about the results and things to do regarding your health. Tell them about your familial history too, it is important. Stay safe and get cracking to the doctor ok..:)

For some reason, I feel tired all the time. I get full nights rest, I m a homemaker with no worries, I m happy. I have had my blood tested for hormones, thyroid, anemia , you name it. I am not pumped after I exercise, I m exhausted. I breath fine and have no chest pains, but could it STILL be my heart, may be? If not, then what the HELL is wrong with me!

Last night, my heart started beating irregularly, maybe fast and it was slightly painful. The pain was in my right chest and my right shoulder blade. I also had a heart burn feeling for a few minutes in my chest and between my shoulder blades. I was shaking, I had chills like I had a fever. My hands and feet were hurting as if they were really swelled but they were not. I felt weak. There were a few times I felt like I needed to cough. Now this morning, I feel okay, in comparison to last night. I feel sore, my chest, my upper back and my neck. My hands and feet still have the painful, swelled feeling even tho, they look normal. And I have a little headache. I ve been having and irregular heartbeat on and off for a while. I was hoping it was anxiety. But it s never been this bad. Thank you, Krista.(31)

My father, age 78, is in excellent health and only takes medication for hypercholesterolemia (low 200 s). He recently started Erythromycin for head and chest congestion and sore throat. After taking this for a few days he had blood blisters erupt in his scalp and ears. His head felt a lot of pressure and he was worried he might be having a stroke. His neck and head were stiff with some numbness in his right arm. He DC d the antibiotic and went to his doctor, who placed him on Prednisone. Now he is a little groggy and isn t feeling well so he stopped the Prednisone. He sounds weak and we aren t sure why he was put on the Prednisone. My question is - why take Prednisone if the blisters are drying up? What is the benefit versus the risks?

Have mild chest pains after walkng for 20 minutes. They last about 15 minutes and when I slow down they go away. The rest of the day I just feel somewhat tired. Had echo,stress test on tread mill and angiogram CT scan. They said my heart is fine but I have some indictation of blocked arteries. One of them appears to be about 55-70% but they do not want to do an angiogram with stent. I had a liver transplant last Dec 2009 and it is fine. I maintain a good BP and pulse rate is a little low. After walking my BP is about 119/65 and HR is 62. Always, but I do have morning hypertension and am taking Cozaar and Norvasc along with Prograff,Imuran--Immunosurpressants for LIVER and Bactrim. The seem to cause headaches EVERY night about 2am that last for several hours. thought I was having a stroke but they ruled that out. Went to ER several times thinking that I was having a heart attack. EKG shows nothing and the heart enzyme tests are negative. I am puzzled. My dentist who is an avid runner said that I may be having ANGINA and to take my NITRO with me. I don t want to stop walking but this has been gpoing on for 3 months and nothing has been diagnosed? Thank You.
