The other day I was cleaning the insides out of a frozen

HelloThe other day I was cleaning the insides out of a frozen turkey and my hands got extremely cold from the ice. I immediately had a little chest pain lasting a few minutes. I have had this symptom once before when handling ice. Just an FYI, I recently had a stress echo which was normal. This was done for tachycardia.. I also have Fibromyaglia and tend to have a little bit of Raynauds in fingers and toes. Just slightly.

This is going to be in my opinion a loaded question but is

This is going to be in my opinion a loaded question but is there a way to increase vascular resistance ? I ask this cause I have mild fingernail clubbing and based on what I've researched online in regards ***** ***** clubbing and how lower then needed blood oxygen levels , somehow causes clubbing through how lower then normal or needed blood oxygen levels somehow cause vasodilation so I'm thinking if there is a way through diet exercise etc to reverse the vasodilation that has taken place , maybe I can reverse or at least better the appearance of My finger and toe nails? Also improving my internal health organs etc I guess improving my internal health would be best regardless of fingernail shake changing but I'd love to fix this alsoI been smoking for 20 years but for the last then I've smoked doe uncle so I probably now have a 30 year pack history at just 36 years old which is disappointing to say the least

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?

BRAY: I had told you about my thryoid being gh, and lowering

FOR ANTHONY BRAY:I had told you about my thryoid being high, and lowering dose of syndroid two days ago.And for two night this week when taking laxatives I wake up with more PVCS and bradycardia all night, like 35-45 beats per minute. I have had this happen when my thyroid got high, my pulse is high all day and then gets lower at night like 60 wish, my normal is 78-82. Last night I woke with my pulse all whole and dizzy at 36-42 beats per minute. It freaked me out, and I called on call doctor who said maybe too much propanol, but I had taken normal amount. I take soma too at night but been on it for years so that should not do it, I noticed it has happened before when thyroid is high and it has only happened the nights I have taken the laxatives. I am getting scared that my body seems totally out of zinc and I have oral surgery this week again. What could cause bradycardia while sleeping?
