Hi thanks for using HCM.

With history of chest pain and dizziness need to get complete physical examination and few test CBC, ECG, chest x-ray, ECHO cardiogram, thyroid profile.

Try to keep active. Regular exercise, yoga and pranayama and healthy diet helps you.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Nicotine from cigarettes can cause increased heart best and put pressure on the heart. Even passive smoking, that is, inhaling the smoke exhaled by others, exposes the body to nicotine and other harmful substances present in smoke. That is probably why you feel the same symptoms when others...

This feeling is more or less psychological and will remain for few days.
Do not start chewing tobacco again.

Gradually every thing will be settled.

My son is having pain in his chest 6 months after a bad car wreck. His fibula and tibulas both broke and a rod was put in the main bone. No pain in the chest until a months ago. What type of doctor should we see? He has an appointment with the orthopedic doctor tomorrow as a check up.

I have had chest pain in my lower left lung on and off for the past 6 months or so. Before this I had pneumonia which was misdiagnosed for 6 weeks and ended up on three courses of antibiotics. I was just wondering what the chest pain is. I have lost my faith in my doctors due to being misdiagnosed for so long and would just like a reasonable answer.

doctor1 MD

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?
