My dad is 68 a month ago doctors found fluid around the heart, with medication they were able to remove most or all of it. he is still feels fatigue and still has a low grade fever. he has gone back for more tests they cant find a problem. what should they be looking for.

doctor1 MD

Fluid around heart is called pericardial effusion.
There are so many causes for it.
If you are saying all reports are normal,then might be cause is of viral etiology as he is having fever also.
Just have healthy diet with increased oral fluids.
Bed Rest and he will be fine.

My three year old son is getting frequent nose bleeds, leg pains and more fatigue than usual. My first thought is he is going through some growing pains....? Which may explain the fatigue and leg pains at night. In regards to the nose bleed maybe a thin mucus membrane from what his doctor told us a year ago. However, I am wondering if they could all be symptoms of something else...? If you have any information regarding this that would be a blessing. Thank you for your time and Happy Mothers Day to all those Mothers out there

My mother an 80-year-old, weighs around 58 kg, had some numbness in her right lower extremities. Our PCP checked her BP and it was 190/90. My mother does not have any history of hypertension or diabetes, does not have any chest pain or shortness of breath. No fever or chills. She is very active and involve in all daily routine activities normally. Our PCP suggested to take amlodipine besylate 5 mg once daily. After she took her first dose of 5 mg, she feels little fatigue. Just what I want to know is, whether mild lower-extremity numbness is due to high systolic 190 though diastolic reading is 90. Is it safe to continue with calcium channel blocker or should go to some other medication. What are the risk factors? I will take her to my PCP in 3-4 days and get her BP checked. My mother is purely vegetarian, drinks 2-3 coffee per day, otherwise, normal with vitals and physical. Cataract operation two years back with lens. She does not take any other medications. Please suggest whether she should continue with this medication.
