Chest pressure and its causes? I'm been having pressure in my chest when I have to bend over to pick things up, ties my shoes, etc. I've also been experiencing swelling and tingling in my hands.

Chest pressure and its causes? I'm been having pressure in my chest when I have to bend over to pick things up, ties my shoes, etc. I've also been experiencing swelling and tingling in my hands.

There : There are many reasons why you may be experiencing a pressure sensation in your chest. Heart symptoms from a plugged artery (or angina) typically occurs with exertion and resolves with resting. The fact that these symptoms occur while bending over would be atypical for angina, but might suggest gastric reflux - or stomach acid moving up the esophagus when you bend over. Similarly the swelling and tingling in your hands could be due to many causes from heart disease to a pinched nerve. My suggestion is that you contact your primary doctor for an appointment. If these, or any other symptoms, worsen or change in any significant way, you could also go to a hospital emergency room for a further evaluation. ...Read more

I have an itchy rash, pain & swelling on my chest, lips, back & hands after sun exposure. I take meds that cause photo sensitivity. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is not he?

Avoid prolonged: Sun exposure, use sunscreen. You may have 'solar urticaria', a sort of physical urticaria, and can be precipitated by meds causing photosensitivity. If Benadryl (diphenhydramine) doesn't work, try cetirizine or loratadine, at any rate avoidance is the key. You can also try hydrocortisone cream 1% OTC. You need to see a dermatologist if problem worsens or persists, good luck ...Read more
