Dr chip u honestly told me to go see Dr to calm myself ,and u think I am ok and heart is ok

Your heart is fine and I just wanted your doctor to tell you that too

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Dr chip hello ,so I got back from Dr I don't know how to feel so I will need ur help.ao my weight is 204 .I gained 30 lb .my BP 116/75 ,pulse oximeter 97 ,he examined me listenwd to heart and lungs said well ur heart and lungs sound perfect now ,but then u not doing anything now I freaked out .he examined my stomach .then he took blood work for theyroid and blood sugar .he said I need to sleep .so what can u make of it

Sounds good actually

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
But why he said my heart sounds ok while I was there and didn't do anything phisical ? And then he said u also don't have symptoms now do u ? I said no .he said if it's not my thyroid ,and not low blood sugar it's lack of sleep .

Did you tell him about all the symptoms you've been having?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I told him about out of breath , sweaty ,dizzy while doing something .I told him I am scared if it's heart he looked at me like I am nuts and smiled

So what do I need to tell you?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
If u think the way Dr said about heart being good but in a resting position is something bad and does it mean I need another stress test .and do u think what I am experiencing is danger my symptoms I mean

See--here's the problem--

You have these irrational fears of there being a problem with your heart and I've been telling you over and over it's fine and you don't need any more tests

But now, even with your own doctor telling you that face to face, you still can't let it go

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
I guess I just want to feel phisicly well

I know you do

But can we at least put to bed this fear you have of having a problem with your heart?

Listen--this is a very old record that you keep playing over and over again

Pls don't get irritated with me,I know u have people that ask u new question every day ,but u know me I do have same ongoing problem ,I can't lie and come up with new stuff .I am no less frustrated that I can't understand why I have it and how to get rid of it

I'm not irritated but you just won't accept that there's nothing wrong with your heart of your lungs. It's like you don't hear what I tell you

You definitely need some therapy for your OCD/anxiety problem

I believe u ,but why I did not get any for a long time and now out of blue it's non stop .I am allways afraid of arrytmia

What I feel is I have my regular heart beat and then I have loud thumps

Even so that may not be palps and even if it were, nothing worrisome

Dr chip it's unbelievable ,it's almost non stop with either palps or skipped beats or extra beats ,I remember u told me they r quite painfull but not life threatening .but why so many so often .I am now scared I will have deadly arrythmia

It's not deadly

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
