Can chinese herbs cause palpitations or weak pulse? I have been taking about 12 different herbs for the last four days per my naturopath.

Herbs: Definitely can cause many side effects. See someone else. Multiple drugs taken over such a short period of time is mysterious. How would any provider, especially a relatively untrained "naturopath', know when one or the other caused side effects, many which are well known with many "chinese herbs"? Find a doctor and discuss. ...Read more

Positive methanine challenge indicating reactive airway disease for pft what's that mean? Lump feeling throat for months heavyness taking breaths. Would lung doc bronchoscopy and ent doc normal rule out something throat caused by cancer? Weak pulse

RAD: The challenge test just confirms that your airways react with some tightening/wheezing which reduces your lungs ability to move air. It is often used as a marker for asthma, RAD but beyond that tells you little. If you have had all these tests & they have not spotted a cancer, that should not be considered as a cause. If they eliminate a structural problem for your sensation it must be something else ...Read more

Could I have low BP despite extremely strong pulse and vice versa? Running and extreme strong pulse same BP reading as calm and weak pulse when I took

Could I have low BP despite extremely strong pulse and vice versa? Running and extreme strong pulse same BP reading as calm and weak pulse when I took

Yes: The strength of your pulse is often unrelated to the actual blood pressure. This variance is even greater as we age. The intensity of the pulse can also be affected by thyroid disease, anemia, aortic regurgitation and exercise. Also, the farther you are from the heart, the less the pulse accurately correlates with the heart's output. So, the neck pulse correlates better than the wrist pulse. ...Read more

Normal: It is common and normal to see pulsations in the abdomen as the largest artery in the body, the aorta, is located in the midline of the abdomen. It is very visible in slender people. If the pulsations are exceedingly prominent or a very large mass is present, a physician should examine you, however although an aneurysm would be very unusual in your age group. ...Read more

I have pots and almost fainted a minute ago, and my pulse felt very weak for a second. Normal for vasovagal syncope?

Probably: Pots, as you know, stand for postural orthostatic tacycardia syndrome. It is very common in teens and twenties in girls and women. Heart rate should go up more than 30 beats per min when one stands up suddenly and may temporarily lose consciousness. If you yourself is feeling your pulse immediately after the episode, your judgment of pulse strength may not be accurate, but the pulse could be weak. ...Read more

My heart beats faster suddenly even when I am resting. I'm sure not anxiety. Pulse is fast but weak. Why is this happening?

My heart beats faster suddenly even when I am resting. I'm sure not anxiety. Pulse is fast but weak. Why is this happening?

Let me ask you: Are you sleeping well at night? Is your daytime energy level adequate or low? Do you have panic attacks or ever been treated for anxiety or depression? How fast does the pulse get? Does it go to 150 and stay there or do you just notice this in your chest? Do you get headaches often? ...Read more

If av fistula in arm. Does your pulse become bounding or weak?

If av fistula in arm. Does your pulse become bounding or weak?

Slightly weaker: The fistula it self should have a strong pulsation but the pulse below it is a bit weaker because the fistula steals some of the arterial blood from the artery that goes down to the wrist providing that arterial pressure to the vein above it.
It should remain palpable though and the hand should remains well supplied with blood. ...Read more
