Hi there,

I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.

Feeling colder can have different reasons: A simple cold, a hypothyreosis, an anaemia, low blood pressure. A serious infection always goes along with other symptoms. Do you have any? Did you have bloodworks lately?

I had blood tests done a month ago and everything showed up as normal
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Should I worry about the risk of death or anything as serious as that
Doctor: Dr. Gehring, Doctor replied 1 year ago

No, there is no reason to worry, if you have no other serious symptoms.! You shuld only see your doctor and have blood and blood pressure checked if you don't improve within the next days.

I've been having chest pain and pain in my left arm that's been on and off. In addition to this I feel weak at times and my throat feels like cardboard at the moment.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The chest pain and arm pain have been going on for quite a while
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I've also felt jaw pain as well but this has been very rare in all honesty
Doctor: Dr. Gehring, Doctor replied 1 year ago

This pain would be a reason to have your heart checked immidiately if not already done!

I've had doctors look at my heart in the past and they didn't even consider an EKG as something I should do
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Although my heart does speed up and slow down at times
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Given that the pain is on and off would you worry
Doctor: Dr. Gehring, Doctor replied 1 year ago

This has nothing to do with your feeling cold.

I haven't slept a lot and had coffee but I'm having shortness of breath and a racing heartbeat. If this seems fine to you I'll stop talking about this.
Doctor: Dr. Gehring, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes it's fine with me. Please don't forget to rate my help (27th July) positively. All the best!

I'm confused about how this is fine when it constantly feels like there's something in my throat
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I've also felt a ton of pain and pressure in my chest. If this is normal for a skiing injury then I will stop talking about this but it's quite bothersome and has me very worried.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm also unable to rate you although I would have rated you five stars

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.
