Can emotional, physical, sexual and verbal abuse, control and threats during pregnancy cause such disorders as toutetts, ocd, odd, anxiety?

Maybe not cause but: Certainly uncover or make worse any of those issues noted. Intervention should be done as soon as possible to protect the expectant mother & the unborn child.

Aortic Regurgitation - When are pounding/forceful heartbeats felt? During strenous activity? Lying down? Routine activity? Sitting? Are they constant?

This may or may not be perceived by the patient. As w/ most cardiac conditions, it is likely to be more symptomatic w/ strenuous activity. Diagnosis requires physical exam +/-echocardiography. ...Read more

Experiencing  rapid heart rate (worsened by: psychological stress) . HR around 115 when I wake up. Excessive sweating while exercise. Reason?

Get seen: The heart rate itself isn't a danger. How much you sweat is personal. You may get a Holtor monitor, labs to screen for a pheochromocytoma, and a good EKG. I'm simply glad that you're exercising. Keep that up. You may well be fine. Best wishes. ...Read more

My Wife is experiencing  headache (time frame: gradual onset) (worsened by: psychological stress, during menstruation, skipping meals) (occurred: > 3?

Headache: PMS?: Headaches with stress or low blood sugar are common, and can also occur as pre-menstrual when estrogen levels fall rapidly, causing both emotional reactions (stress) and contractions of some blood vessels, which lead to headaches. "Missing meals" can cause temporary drops in blood sugar, which produce headaches as well. Consult a referral neurologist if these continue, for a specific cause. ...Read more

Intermittent Rapid heart rate at rest and after warm bath/showers?! 2 week Event/Holter negative, even during intense exercise. Not anxious.

Rapid pulse: It would be helpful if you are able to accurately count your pulse(beats per minute) when you feel you're heart is racing to see if criterion for abnormally rapid heart rate is met.

Is vigorous, high intensity exercise or prolonged, intense sexual activity safe if you're prehypertensive but otherwise healthy?

Is vigorous, high intensity exercise or prolonged, intense sexual activity safe if you're prehypertensive but otherwise healthy?

Start slowly: If you haven't been very active prior, ease yourself into exercise. High-intensity interval training can be great but also predispose you to injury if you don't have some fitness base. Otherwise, if you have no other issue, prehypertension isn't particularly concerning and exercise, including sexual activity, is good for you. Listen to your body though, and consider touching base with your doctor ...Read more

This can be related to the physical and hormonal changes associated with pregnancy as well as the stress of the pregnancy (change is stressful even when it is a good change). Low potassium is not directly related to either, but can also occur. ...Read more

Cognitive impairment onset following gastroenteritis. No substance abuse, depresssion, anxiety or medication. Normal BP, bloodsugar and CRP. ?

Sudden? Gradual?: You don't mention how or if the impairment was confirmed, but distress, especially chronic and untreated, can itself take a functional toll on mental activity quality. If you can find even symptomatic relief for the GI pain, you might discover a cognitive improvement too. If not - maybe a psycho-neurological exam can find a basis. Nutrition also may play a role. If severe, seek answers. Good luck! ...Read more
