Customer Question

I've been feeling colder than usual and I'm wondering if that could be due to something more than a cold

It's currently 78 where I live and it honestly feels like it's 60 degrees outside
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

Hi there,

I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.

Feeling colder can have different reasons: A simple cold, a hypothyreosis, an anaemia, low blood pressure. A serious infection always goes along with other symptoms. Do you have any? Did you have bloodworks lately?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I had blood tests done a month ago and everything showed up as normal
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Should I worry about the risk of death or anything as serious as that
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

No, there is no reason to worry, if you have no other serious symptoms.! You shuld only see your doctor and have blood and blood pressure checked if you don't improve within the next days.

I've been having chest pain and pain in my left arm that's been on and off. In addition to this I feel weak at times and my throat feels like cardboard at the moment.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The chest pain and arm pain have been going on for quite a while
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I've also felt jaw pain as well but this has been very rare in all honesty
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

This pain would be a reason to have your heart checked immidiately if not already done!

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I've had doctors look at my heart in the past and they didn't even consider an EKG as something I should do
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Although my heart does speed up and slow down at times
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Given that the pain is on and off would you worry
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

This has nothing to do with your feeling cold.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
well would you worry about things like heart issues
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Given the duration
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
This has been going on for at least a month
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

Yes. Plaease accept my offer if you want to talk about your heart.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
At times I feel I'm unable to breath and this has been going on for weeks as well
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

Please accept my offer.

Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

You habe discussed your heart issue with Dr. Saha already. I understand that you don't need to do that again.

I wish you all the best and thank you for rating my help concerning your cold positively.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I haven't slept a lot and had coffee but I'm having shortness of breath and a racing heartbeat. If this seems fine to you I'll stop talking about this.
Expert:  DrHoellering replied 4 months ago.

Yes it's fine with me. Please don't forget to rate my help (27th July) positively. All the best!

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I'm confused about how this is fine when it constantly feels like there's something in my throat
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I've also felt a ton of pain and pressure in my chest. If this is normal for a skiing injury then I will stop talking about this but it's quite bothersome and has me very worried.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I'm also unable to rate you although I would have rated you five stars
