    Strange symptoms no answers and scared

    So I’m in my late 30s. And last week along with this week I had two separate incidents of severe chest pain into my left arm paired with rapid heart rate and the feeling that I was going to pass out. Both times I went to the ER and both times all tests came back negative for heart issues. I am still getting random stabbing pains in my chest and into my left arm but these are not paired with the rapid heart rate. Additionally about 11 mos ago I had an epidural placed on a vein. They put a test dose....

    Peak heart rate while exercising, otherwise healthy

    I am female, 43, pretty healthy (need to shed about 5 extra lbs), exercise regularly. My blood pressure is normal, as is my cholesterol. When I exercise (I do kickboxing intervals and running), my heart rate reaches peak exercise very quickly (like within a few minutes) and I operate around 189 bpm unless I slow down to walking speed. My rate goes down very quickly, as well, which I understand can be interpreted as a positive. I just worry that I might actually be harming myself, though I have no....

    Does stage three starvation reduce atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries?

    I realize this is a little like asking whether I should use a hot branding iron or get stitches, but it's my first question. During stage two starvation, which may last several weeks, the body is harvesting every available source of fat and turning it into glycerol and fatty acids. Depending on much stored fat the person has, this phase may last three to seven weeks. Stage three starvation starts when the body has run out of fat sources, and it starts breaking down muscle tissue exclusively.....

    Heart Failure

    I would like to share with you my story. I am Daniel and what I thought was the flu, turned out to be something much worse. When I was so weak, he decided it was time to visit the local emergency room. It was there that doctors discovered his my pulse was 180 and out of rhythm. Me and my family were preparing for the worst, however I had one particular reason to fight for: My first child was on the way. The next morning, I was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. I was sent....
