I have a mild mitral valve regurgitation and same on one

I have a mild mitral valve regurgitation and same on one more valve. I've been feeling that I get more tired when I walk long distance but I get more tired sooner, out of breath, about 3 years ago. Since then, this year, I've been diagnosed with Hashimoto and have been taking synthetic T4/T3 hormone combo since May. My energy is way up and I now go to the gym almost 4-5 times a week... but I hear my heart pounding a lot, esp when in bed. My doc gave me reacted Mg (as DiMagnesium Malate, Mg Citrate USP TRAACS, and Mg Lysanate Glycinate Chelate) 235mg in the morning and in the evening by Orthomolecular but I seem to be getting loose stool from it, although I just switched from Mg 07 which I was on for a month as the nurse gave me the wrong Mg initially. Question is are heart valve issues caused by Hashimoto? Can I lift weights? If so how - slowly? I breathe in/out on every move up/down. Is it dangerous to run on treadmill for 20 min, or to sprint just to train my heart to get stronger? I stopped drinking coffee completely and on occasion take only decaf. I also switched to deaf black teas only or herbal teas. Is this Reacted Mg something I'll have to take for life? And if so shouldn't I be taking Calcium with Mg as well? Will Mg not excrete calcium out of my bones?I'm female 45

My brain feels very odd, I'm having burning sensation in my hands and arms also feet sometimes. Constant nausea. 2. Pain pretty much everywhere. 3. Lump on the throat on the left side, do you think thyroid is involved? 4. Do you think that my immune system is really weak? Or that maybe I have a hernia

About a week ago I had a manic episode, and didn't sleep for

About a week ago I had a manic episode, and didn't sleep for 5~6 days in the midst of having it. I was also neglecting eating enough food & couldn't digest most of the water I was drinking; most of it would end up being urinated so I was a bit malnourished.Since about 5 days ago, I have slept normally & started taking an anti-psychotic medication (Risperidone) & another to counteract the side effects of Risperidone (Benztropine) every day before bed. I've never taken any drugs for this before. Everything is going well except that I have a persistent and dull pain in my head that has slowly gotten progressively worse over the past 2 days. This isn't the typical headache I've ever had because it just tingles and is a completely persistent pain. It's only 3/10 on the pain scale, but it's unsettling and I'd like to know the possible causes for this and if it's anything to be worried about.

I am looking for some natural treatments for a very strange,

Hello,I am looking for some natural treatments for a very strange, mysterious pain that I get when I rub any part of my legs, sometimes my arms too. I don't feel any pain until I rub my legs, thighs and arms. I have never had this before, its only happened in the last couple of months. Very annoying and the pain is quite painful. I had a doctor check me out and do some blood tests but there didn't seem to be anything they could find that was causing the pain. Would appreciate some help! Thank you.

I need some advice and possible suggestions on what to do

I need some advice and possible suggestions on what to do for my son. He is 22 years old and he has had some stomach issues since he was young usually a stomach ache sometimes vomiting happens off and on, he went and saw a GI specialist and had test run they couldn't find anything wrong, besides that he had some constipation at the time, he does not seem to have that problem now. Over the past month he has been waking up every night with stomach ache and nausea throwing up almost every single morning sometimes multiple times and I had him back at the doctor this past Monday they did blood work they even tested his blood for a wheat and other food allergies which everything was negative. He has no infection, no food allergies and yet his stomach hurts and he's throwing up every single day. So I'm at the point where I am changing our diet at home and making sure everything that I buy is non-GMO and organic I'm wondering if maybe he's having a reaction to genetically modified foods or non organic foods because of the chemicals and pesticides and stuff? I'm just wondering since the doctors can't find anything wrong and they want to send him back to a GI specialist, do you think his problem could be related to GMO or non-organic foods?
