I often lose my breath and I am having problems even doing light exercise, such as walking a slight distance. I’ll be feeling a burning sensation in my chest. I am 25 years old. Is it possible for a young man like me to have heart disease? Or is this a lung problem? Should I be worried and get an examination?
Doctor, my body is shaking as fast as my heart rhythm, I feel a throbbing sensation in my stomach, my throat also “beats” like as though it's a heartbeat. Sometimes if I stand for too long, I feel as if I am going to fall, and my right chest feels full of gas. My electrocardiogram and echocardiogram results are normal. What disease is this, Doc?
Good afternoon, Doctor. I get tired easily and experience shortness of breath during activity. My chest often hurts. What should I do? Thank you
My husband is 40 years old and was diagnosed with pneumothorax. He complained about fast heartbeat and shortness of breath. The doctor said it takes time to be cured. Is it a serious disease Doc? Can you give us some advice, what we should do to get better soon? Are there any certain medicines we should take?
Doctor, two days ago I had a fever and felt pain at the center upper part of my heart, like a stabbing sensation. Now the fever is better but the pain persists, even more so if I move my body. Why is this so, Doc? Please give me your advice
Hello doctor. Last month my father had a heart valve replacement surgery. Now, at night, he often wakes up and complains about the pain in his chest. Is this normal for a patient like him? Is there anything he should avoid doing?
Hello, Doctor. My husband was diagnosed with a narrowing of coronary arteries. I am considering bypass surgery. The problem is my husband has diabetes. Is bypass surgery safe for him? Or do you have any suggestions?
Doctor, I have a problem with a thickening heart wall. How do I treat it? Thank you.
Doctor, I am a 62 year old male and have narrow blood vessels. I feel like I am going to black out whenever I feel tired. Currently I am taking medications prescribed by the doctor. I want to ask, can surgery solve this problem permanently so I get totally cured?
Good afternoon, Doctor. This past month I have been having problems swallowing food. When I finally swallow my food, my chest feels so painful. I have to eat slowly because in between spoonfuls, I have to withstand the pain in my chest. Why is this so, Doc?
