Panic attacks: If you have a panic disorder, your Fight-flight-freeze response is too easily triggered. Please start w/a visit to your doc. Then see a clinical psychologist who may use clinical hypnosis (www.asch.net) or biofeedback to help. See www.relaxationresponse.org for some self-help. Peace and good health.

A 44-year-old member asked:

Are aspirin, acetaminophen and ibuprofen equally good at preventing heart attacks?

Dr. Luke Hermann
Emergency Medicine 25 years experience
No: Heart attacks are typically a result of platelets sticking together and blocking an artery in the heart. Aspirin blocks the platelets ability to stick together decreasing the chance that a blockage (heart attack) will occur. For this reason, Aspirin is one of the most effective medicines ever discovered for the prevention of heart attacks. Neither tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen has this effect.

Possible: This is a matter that needs further evaluation especially if this is a recent change for you. The work up should consider heart related issues, ruling out angina and chf. From the lung point of view a breathing test is needed, checking for asthma and copd. Blood tests to check for anemia, thyroid problems ....Etc.

It would likely help: A psychiatric evaluation would likely result in targeting the depression which if treated effectively can alleviate some or all of the other symptoms. Other things such as psychotherapy, nutrition, lifestyle changes, and assessing possible addiction issues are important as well.

A 24-year-old member asked:

I have been getting tingling in my foot for about 2 days now and now really bad pains in my right arm and neck.. Am I having a mild heart attack?

Dr. Louis Grenzer

No: Your symptoms do not suggest a heart problem. The arm and neck pain sounds musculoskeletal, perhaps a pinched nerve in the neck. The foot problem could also be irritation of a nerve in teh leg. You would need an examination to pinpoint the problem.
