You opened you mouth like a fish?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

sorry u know i think like fish out of the wather i am trying to yawn change position, open my mouth to get a good satisfying breath. also back hurts. also today very bad heartburn, and i actually feel heaviness where my diafram is

OK--so what's different this time from all the times before?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

feeling kinf of weak and kind of dizzy, being constantly aware of my pouding heart. i know i probably sound like a broken record

Don't you understand that the contstant attempt at yawning and the fish out of water thing just increases your breathing rate and causes the dizziness and the chest tightness?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

but how i cannot ywan or cough or change positions if i have this feeling that i am out of breath.. and also did u see my pulse

The pulse is still fine--it ups with your anxiety and your feeling of being out of breath is also your anxiety and you need to practice slow breathing techniques when you don't feel out of breath so you can use them when you do feel that way. The old time way to deal with it was to breathe in and out of a small brown paper bag.

this cardiophobia is not a joke. i gues my fear is sudeen death from arithmia.and is it true , i read that if have no risk factors that stress test, ekg r useless because people will get anxious and it would show false positive

Pardon my French, but were the hell did you read that?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

haha good one. i read it in consumer report

what exactly did the article say?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

it said 4 tests u may not need . they were talking av=bout stress test, ekg, cst scan for headaches, and some test for bones. its said if u dont have symptoms u dont need them .

What about the part about anxiety causing false positives?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

that when people come to have ekg and stress test done they get very anxious and results r often false. so when i read it i got even more anxious, because i rely on all the tests.

That's a bunch of bull--anxiety doesn't cause the kind of changes on an EKG or a stress test that would mean a false positive result for heart disease.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

so u think tesults in gotwere truth.u see now my daughter has stomach ache, i already paing picks in my head ftrom poisining, and to gos knows what

those tests were all valid and correct and you don't have any heart problems.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

ok dear doc. what do i do when all of a sudden i get this feeling like i a cant breath,back hurts etc. becides meds

Have you ever just sat down and forced yourself to breathe deeply and slowly?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

i do try , but usually when i have these breathing issues i am so concern with breathing that it doesnt work

Doesn't work or you just can't do it?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

i toesntbwork for me

It isn't supposed to work on the anxiety thoughts but it should relieve the swallowing problems and the dizziness and the chest tightness.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

hey my favorite doctor. well i have a horrible headache again, this hedaches have kind of happening more often. we were envited to a get together i told my husband and my son to go i stayed with my daughter. also yesterday it started againg this pain on the very low side, when i would go to the bathroom i would feel this pulling down sensation, and then when i would get up i get this stabbing pain on a very low bottom. again the forst fear as my appendix the second is cancer. please talk to me get some sense in to me

Stabbing pain on a very low bottom?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

in the pelvic area. omg while waiting for ur responce opened msn and it says micahel clarke dunken died at 54 he never fully recovered for heart attack in july. its just salt on my wound. i also hav ebeen eating real bad this 2 days .

People die from heart attacks every day and at every age--you're never going to get away from that. Let's stop about the eating thing--we've talked that to death. So tell me about this pain.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

well first u now scared me reall bad. about pain i think i told u , it feels when i walk it dull pain and it goes to my lower back, if i sit and get up its real is painful. and on top of it headache and i feel nauceous

Has sex been painful before? And I didn't try to scare you but if you ever look at any news outlet you're going to find information on someone who died of a heart attack.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

yes the pain during sex has been an issue for a long time, what scare sme when i see young people die not old ones

Well, not your appendix for sure. And age 54 isn't what I'd call young
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

so sorry was busy with kids. so what can it be. my head still hurts so farvtook took two tylenols during the day. and to me personally 54 is young my mom god forbid is 53

tell me exactly where the pain is
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

r u talking about the head. well when i change positions or get up it starts pounding . when i am sitting or laying infeel heaviness, and pressure in the front. inhave cold cloth on my head now. and no its nothing new. its just very painfull, light is bothering me alot.

No, you were asking about the pelvic pain
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

i think i wrote it to u above. i told u when i get up it hurts more if i sit its a dull pain and it goes to ,y lower back, and when i pee i feel pressure

Well that could just be a urinary tract infection or possibly a kidney stone.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

so what do i do. thats what i need on top of my other problems this and my damn head

Just ride it out until tomorrow and see how it is then
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

ok what about my head can i take one more tylenol

You can take two more if you'd like.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

hello doctor, how r u. well i have been doing some bartering at my daughters gym in child care, yesterday they brought seven month old baby i had to hold him for an hour he was crying my back was killing me i can actually pin point where it hurts, its upper back towards the left. and now i feelpain there, and again it very hard to breath, kind of winded

That's only a painful muscle back there--nothing more.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

tell could muscle or disc cause my breathing problems, because this back pain is not new, i guess it was aggravated by me holding that child. i am sitting an constantly taking deep breathes

Neither a back muscle or a disk problem would cause any shortness of breath
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

i woulnt call sob its loke ineed to take a deep breath but cant

that's been a problem for a long time and I've told you that that is just your anxiety
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

also had more palps

again, not all of what you think are palps are really palps.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
