Holter will tell.: The first thing here would be to get the results of the Holter, or of an event recorder if the Holter doesn't catch anything. Your symptoms could be caused by a rhythm disturbance, but that disturbance needs to be found before we can be sure. And if no arrhythmia is found, then your symptoms could be due to something else entirely. ...Read more

Hiatal hernia: Small hernias are not to worry about. Your symptoms could be related to reflux disease, which is typically easily controlled with a variety of anti-acid medications.

Yes, sadly: Endometriosis can cause back pain, nausea and stomach pain. However, you wouldn't want to miss something else that has to do with the gastrointestinal tract. I would write down your symptoms and when they occur and if they are triggered by eating or anything gastrointestinal. Then see a gynecologist and discuss your diary. Best of luck. ...Read more

I was on steriod 2wks for tight chest no asthma was walking up everyday feeling really ill and weak constant worrying. Feel fine now but tight chest?
Not so simple: Do you mean walking up or WAKING up? If you had a viral infection, the explanation by the other physician is probably correct. You also mention feeling ill and worrying. It can be a side effect of steroids or a cause for chest tightness. There are also some other diseases that can start like that. If no better within a few days, do see your physician again. ...Read more

What is the difference between a chest cold and pneumonia? What do I have? Mucous-y cough, overall sick feeling, stuffy nose, I'm scared!

If only cough, congestion, low grade fever, sore throat, change in voice can be from rhinitis, laryngitis, or bronchitis. If high fever and body pain, make sure you don't have flu. ...Read more
