As per your statement he is having some cardiac problem, have him checked out in an ER. The earlier the better.

Hi doctor, My 6 week old was awake from 8 in the evening to 5 in the morning. She got her 6 week vaccination two days back and has slight fever for which we r giving crocin drops. She wasn t cranky until around 12 in the night. We tried putting her to sleep many times. She would sleep wen carried but the moment we put her on bed she would wake up. She wanted to be fed very often. After sometime my breasts became tender and she wasn t able to latch properly. That irritated her . She was very cranky while feeding. Finally we gave her Colicaid drops. She passed motion after that and slept well. It s 12 now and she is still sleeping. Tried feeding her In-between . What could be the reason for this behaviour.? Is it gas or stomach pain or growth spurt? Earlier twice she has shown the same behaviour. She doesn t sleepy at night till 3 or 4 and then whole day she keeps sleeping. Plus since she doesn t feed properly whole sleeping my supply decreases. When she is wide awake i have tender breasts which irritated her. What to do? What can I supplement her with...Can t let her go hungry

hey i have been really light headed and faintish lately and i feel really weak all the time and tired....

This has happened to me twice now. The first time I was sitting, I stood up, everything went black and I was on the floor. The second time I was lying in bed, got up to answer the phone and everything went black, my legs and arms felt like elastic. I was on the phone, and I could hear the person, but she sounded farther away. My eyes were open but everything was dark. It corrected itself this time, but I am wondering if I should be concerned about this? I am currently sick at the moment, but am taking in juices, and soup.

I have seen two doctors for chest pain. I have had stress test tilt table test and angiogram done. One doctor says that it is coronary artery spasms and the other says its angina. I quit my stressful job, and haven t had an attack in awhile. But in the last week I have had two attack. They seem to be getting worse. I went to the ER for this last one and they said everything looked ok. Can you have a mini heart attack and not know? I am still experiencing chest pain, but don t want to go back to the ER.

hello. was wondering if i should be concerned. my mother has atrial fibrillation as was given digoxin and metroprolol a few weeks ago. a cardiologist that checked her two days ago said that her heart rate is to slow & that those drugs weren t helping (she was feeling dizzy upon exertion...i.e walking 2-3 mins). now her heart is racing (approx 100-105 bpm and i m concerned. she says she feels fine but does this mean she s at increased risk of heart attack or stroke?
