Hi doctor i wanted to know rapid heart rate can cause a person to bleed out if they have an injury like a nose bleed or something?

No: Rapid heart rate won't make you bleed out. It's a response to adrenalin stimulus like pain. If you have lost too much blood from an injury, rapid HR is a compensatory response. ...Read more

Brain Tumor?: Dizziness & nausea are very non-specific symptoms. While they may be a sign of a brain tumor, they may also follow a concussion, many viral illnesses, middle ear/sinus infections, and a whole panoply of other things. Did you suffer a head injury? Do you have any other symptoms, like a fever, pain in the sinuses, headache, or blurred vision? Consult your doctor if it doesn't clear up in a few days. ...Read more

Just because a 13 month has a low grade fever do you need to take her to the hospital, and with a fever never over 101.7 cause brain damage?

Maybe: While this may not require a hospital, it is a good idea to see your pediatrician. Since babies can't communicate their pains, only an exam can tell if there's something requiring treatment. Extra caution is always needed in those under 2. That level of fever is not correlated with febrile seizures nor brain damage. ...Read more

I'm in a hospital with a severe migraine for 3 days that cause a seizure and they say I have a severe bladder infection blood Do I need a 2nd opinion?

Sounds complex: Not clear to me as to whether your continuing inpatient status is due to an infection (sepsis), or from seizures, or a complicated course involving many issues. The headaches could be secondary to infection, and may not be a main item, unless, infection has spread to brain and/or spinal fluid. Would not hurt to get opinions from infectious disease and neurology docs. ...Read more
