I am a 59-year-old 100 pound 5'2 female who has always been
I am a 59-year-old 100 pound 5'2 female who has always been extremely healthy: I exercise regularly and moderately; have an excellent diet of fruits and vegetables and fish protein; have an annual physical and blood lab work. Between February and until recently I got caught up with taking too many supplements including grapeseed extract, bilberry, primary bark – – all of which dilate blood vessels. Also, I was eating a high omega-3 diet including Chia seeds, flax, hempseed's as well as a high-quality 750 mg fish oil. For the first time in my entire life, I had a headache. It was on my left side of my head and two on the scale of 10. It would come and go all day. It lasted in May and June and it's felt less now. because I never had a headache before my doctor ordered an MRI and MRA. The MRA was perfect; the MRI was normal with three minute punctuations. My sed rate was two: my C-reactive protein high sensitivity was .7. My questions are this: do you think taking too many supplements caused the mild headache? She believes I over agitated my blood vessels. I have stopped taking my supplements and have eliminated the extra omega-3 from my diet. I am wondering how long before this on and off mild headache will go away. I hope I have not done any permanent damage to my brain. I'm very worried about that. Again, I never had one headache in my entire life before this but I certainly had amped up my supplements for several months. Any insight that you have would be tremendously valuable.
I am taking 80mg of nadolol. I also was recently prescribed
I am taking 80mg of nadolol for migraines. I also was recently prescribed 20 mg of adderall for concentration/fatigue issues. I've read that there may be a contraindication given the risks associated with unopposed alpha. Should I be concerned about this? How serious is the risk given the dosages I'm taking? Is the contraindication really just targeted at amphetamine overdose?
I was diagnosed with a small anal fissure. Dr said that it
I was diagnosed with a small anal fissure. Dr said that it was not deep but apparently it is making my internal sphincter remain tight therefore making bowel movements difficult. Not everything is coming out and causing hard stools occasionally. This fissure is not from constipation, I believe it was caused from having anal exam from gyno or some tortilla chips that i ate.My question is...I was given a compound of lydocain and nefidepine (sp?). He said this will heal the fissure. Will this also take care of the tight sphincter? Or will this just heal the fissure and I will be left with tight sphincter? Is this cream a cure or just a bandaid and I will always have tight sphincter now?

Since last year I start having serious problem with my hands
Since last year I start having serious problem with my hands especially fingers. They are cold, often feel frozen. I will wake up with very cold hands and they will not get warmer for long time and doing sports in winter in Ottawa is big challenge nowsince they are so cold that I have intense pain. I tried different gloves but no help. In the past once I get warm in core of my body hands will also get warmer but not anymore. I love winter sports but because of this condition I cannot do it anymore - thisyear I will go back home after 15-20 min sinc efrozen hands will cause intense pain. Thanks, Miro.
. I'm curious about my cardiovascular health. My averageView more medical questions
Hello.I'm curious about my cardiovascular health. My average heart rate is always low (appox 48 to 55 beats per minute, like that of an athlete!) However, I never exercise and probably a stone over weight. Also, my bp fluctuates from normal to border line high. My diastolic is always above normal (80 to 90). I have a cardio plethysmograph which shows normal vasodilation and eccentric constriction and no ectopic beats. My last ECG was also normal along with aortic blood pressure. Cholesterol was 5.2 and all other bloods normal.Might there be anything to worry about? And is there any further tests you would recommend?There is heart disease in my family. I suffer from moderate depression/anxiety and don't have the drive to exercise.Thank you.
