I have had migraines, dizziness, chest pains, nosebleeds, and now loss of appetite almost every day. What do I have and should do!

What you should do: If you read the HealthTap disclaimer you were supposed to read when you signed up, you'll see that HealthTap is not for diagnosis; so "what do I have" is not a question you'll get an answer to. However, what it COULD be is very severe hypertension, which can be fatal if not treated. What you "should do" is get yourself to a doctor &/or get your BP checked IMMEDIATELY. ...Read more
