Ask Your Own Medical Question

I'm sorry you are experiencing palpitations. And, I am sorry for your loss. Your symptoms may be due to decreased hormones, stress/anxiety or cardiac related. Regardless of the immediate cause, you do need to have a cardiac evaluation to include, ECG, Echocardiogram, stress test either physical or chemical at a minimal. If there is no evidence to support any heart disease, then evaluate for decreased hormone levels. Stress from the loss of your mother may be a legitimate reason for your symptoms, but you do need to have everything evaluated.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I had ecg in emergency last week normal
I’m waiting to have my cardiac tests done in the next 1-2 weeks here in Canada
The diarrhea us better but all exertion causes it
Last 3 weeks before no cardiac symptoms ever

You don't mention that you take any medication, so I will assume you don't. Being a nurse, you know that one normal ECG is not diagnostic of cardiac disease. The diarrhea may be due to rapid transit aggravated by stress. You can try over the counter Imodium. Please complete your cardiac evaluation even though your symptoms are not due to a cardiac disease.

my menses is 3 days late, i alternate between hot and cold, headache left side, feeling of fullness in left ear. doc has looked in my ear stated clear. Today i have palpitations when rising to have bm in am at 11 am and at 4pm today. all accompanied with left sided headache and fullness in ear.

Thank you for this additional information. To control your diarrhea, please try over the counter Imodium Liquid and eliminate all dairy from your diet. Also, try to limit any products containing white flour. Your diarrhea may be Lactose intolerance or gluten sensitivity. Your doctor can test for these.
