Citramag sachets colonoscopy 5yrs ago Ambulance crew said had "fainted sitting down".Friend saw me confused talking eyes open mumbling nonsense TIA?
I think if you had: had a serious TIA 5 years ago, and you are 76 years old now, you would have developed other symptoms of compromised circulation to head/brain.Magnesium citrate is a strong laxative; my stronger suspicion is that you became dehydrated with electrolyte abnormalities (possibly low sodium) and had "metabolic delirium. If nothing similar has occurred in the interim, I would chalk the episode up to that ...Read more
24wks prgnt, will prentl yoga flip my baby around or rap umbilical cord around his neck? Iam doing these exescies but a fam. Member scared me. Help!
NO: Prenatal yoga will not flip your baby around, nor will it wrap your baby's cord around its neck. If a family member suggested either of these they are ill advised! Your OB MAY have some restrictions on certain poses in yoga, namely inverted poses but only late in pregnancy so ask about these. Yoga is fantastic exercise, relaxation for pregnant moms. Yoga breathing prepares you for labor. ...Read more

Tight/heavy chest. I'm worried I got poisoned by a pesticide man, (he sprayed near me) But my mom says its my OCD. Panic attack or Pyerthin Poisoning?
Poisoning not likely: It is unlikely for an adult to suffer pesticide poisoning just because the pesticide man sprayed nearby. Make sure there is good ventilation. If other adults in the same location are feeling fine, it's not likely that there is enough poison in the air to poison the people. In these circumstances, an OCD patient can look at what the other people are doing, to help verify to herself what is real. ...Read more

My supine pulse was 42-48 during hospital stay.6'0 150 athletic. Is this too low?You hear of Olympians with pulse like this but reading of Bradycardia
Vaccum: Can't assess this in a vacuum. A proper assessment should include a 24 hour recording to see how low you get during sleep and what your 24 hour average is as well as whether the low rate is due to any form of heart block (electrical, not blocked arteries). A treadmill stress test may also be indicated to assess your functional capacity and chronotropic competence. ...Read more

Usual suspect: Anxiety is the likely suspect. Especially at your age w/ your medical history. If youthful cardiovascular problems are in your family history you'd know and should be examined, or if it's part of a syndrome you suffer - like Marfan's - you'd be being monitored for heart issues regularly already. It's a good idea to consider CBT therapy for skills in dealing w/ issues like anxiety, OCD. It works! ...Read more
