Can smoking trigger/increase symptoms of chronic exertional compartment syndrome?

Can smoking trigger/increase symptoms of chronic exertional compartment syndrome?

Probably/why risk it: Cecs happens due to reduced blood flow in muscle areas. It happens in physically active people, for whom smoking can rob oxygen and reduce your exercise tolerance. In any person, tobacco exposes you to 50 known carcinogens plus carbon monoxide and other chemicals. Best thing would be not risking any tobacco (and it gets harder to stop as you get older).

Explain the condition called chronic fatigue syndrome (c.F.S.).?

Still a mystery: Chronic fatigue syndrome refers to severe, continued tiredness that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other medical conditions. As part of the definition of cfs other conditions known to cause fatigue are not present. The cause of cfs is still a mystery but there is often evidence of immune dysfunction and many theorize it is caused by viruses. Please see my comments for more:. ...Read more

Whats chronic compartment syndrome?

Whats chronic compartment syndrome?

Same as exertional: Chronic compartment syndrome is the same as exertional compartment syndrome. It is when the pressure from the muscle compartment in the shin is high. It causes pain in the front of the shin after activity or exercise and it typically is relieved after rest. Some patients report numbness and tingling to the front of the foot as well. It can be experienced in any kind of sport that involves running. ...Read more

Are Lyme disease and chronic fatigue syndrome related?

Similar symptoms: Lyme disease and chronic fatigue syndrome can have very similar symptoms. By definition, if one has chronic fatigue syndrome other causes of fatigue like lyme disease have been ruled out, so if one has lyme disease, by definition they do no have cfs. However, it is likely that many people who have been diagnosed with cfs actually have undiagnosed lyme disease. See comment for more:. ...Read more

Which of the following are auto-immune conditions? Hypothyroidism Coeliac Disease Endometriosis Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

Comments: We are learning that the immune system is playing a huge role in many known diseases, and Celiac is certainly auto-immune mediated, and several thyroid disorders are too. Chronic fatigue is often a manifestation of other disorders, and is not considered a separate disease per se. Am unaware of current concepts regarding endometriosis.

What's the cure for chronic hyperventilation syndrome?

What's the cure for chronic hyperventilation syndrome?

Abdominal breathing.: Instructing patients to breathe abdominally, using the diaphragm more than the chest wall, often leads to improvement in subjective dyspnea and corrects many of the associated symptoms. Diaphragmatic breathing slows the respiratory rate, gives patients a distracting maneuver to perform and provides patients with a sense of self-control during episodes of hyperventilation. ...Read more

What is the cure for chronic hyperventilation syndrome?

Hyperventilation: We always say use a bag for rebreathing, i guess it would be funny to keep a bag over your head all the time (joke only). This is usually a form of hysterical or anxiety disorder and control of your emotions is what is necessary so you won't breath too fast. Feel yourself, if you start getting dizzy, or like floating, start controlling your breathing, start counting to 4 or 5 as you breath out. ...Read more

What are the long term effects of chronic hyperventilation syndrome?

Hmmm...: In physiologic terms, hyperventilation-- chronically-- could not occur due to mechanisms to preserve acid base status on respiratory drive. Respiratory alkalemia (low carbon dioxide) generally leads people to stop breathing in attempt to allow co2 levels to rise. Do you have gen. Anxiety as diagnosis? ...Read more

How do you reverse chronic hyperventilation syndrome?

How do you reverse chronic hyperventilation syndrome?

Stop hyperventilatin: It isn't oxygen level that determines our breathing its the ph or acid/base balance of our blood. When we take over our body's unconscious control of breathing we tend to over breath raising the blood ph which causes a series of physical effects. Once aware of this we can recognize these times and let go of our conscious control, allow the body its own respiratory rate, and the symptoms will stop. ...Read more

Can chronic hyperventilation syndrome cause false positives in hydrogen breath tests?

Seems so: So, be sure to advise the providers doing and interpreting the test of this condition. They might do a different test or prevent the hyperventilation in some way or whatever.

How hard is it to reverse chronic hyperventilation syndrome? I can't hold my breath for more than 5 seconds. I just can't stop overbreathing...

Hyperventilation: Causes co2 to go down, may actually not affect o2 much but it causes respiratory alkalosis, then the kidney will compensate. To bring co2 up, it would be useless to ask a person to hold their breaths, that is the problem in the first place, you should try frequent rebreathing through a paper bag to allow co2 to rise. The only other way would be to give bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) or acetate as source of co2. ...Read more

Could chronic hyperventilation syndrome caused by anxiety cause faint whistling sound with exhalation? The whistle is heard when I'm trying to do it.

Could chronic hyperventilation syndrome caused by anxiety cause faint whistling sound with exhalation? The whistle is heard when I'm trying to do it.

Yes, but: it is more a question of a slight blockage in air flow. THis can be from a deviated septum or exercise induced constriction of part of the respiratory tract. Practically any asthma medication works on that. Regular strenuous exercise changes the tone of the respiratory tract to eliminate it (eventually). ...Read more

How is a diagnoses of chronic hyperventilation syndrome made? Doc has ruled out other causes of paresthesia thru testing.

Blood gases: In hyperventilaton syndrome chronic anxiety produces conscious or unconscious over breathing which blows off an excess of carbon dioxide. This produces what is called respiratory alkylosis in which the blood Ph becomes elevated, the blood gases show normal oxygen but decreased carbon dioxide. This can temporarily be helped by rebreathing in a paper or other bag which adds the lost carbon dioxide. ...Read more

What is the cure for chronic hyperventilation syndrome? My lungs are used to breathing much larger volumes through the chest and i can't stop it.

Treat cause: We breath different amounts during different times. Just like blood pressure and heart rate, body responds to what it needs. If you breath larger volumes, generally there are less breaths per minute. Hyperventilation without this can be due to a metabolic problem that keeps your body breathing excessively. See your doctor or more specifically a pulmonary specialist if needed. ...Read more

Can you have COPD when you're 27? This doesn't feel like asthma or allergies. I have every symptom of chronic hyperventilation syndrome.

Unlikely: There is a rare inherited enzyme deficiency that can cause early onset COPD but patients are normally in their forties before they are affected. Chronic hyperventilation syndrome is different from copd. If you are having breathing difficulties you should see your doctor, some simple tests can be done to isolate what it is that you may have. ...Read more

What are the best breathing exercises for chronic hyperventilation syndrome? I need to restore normal co2 and o2 levels in my lungs. It's very hard.

Earlier answer: Treat the anxiety problem to decrease hyperventilation and do frequent rebreathing in a paper bag like a lunch bag to increase co2. The only other way would be to increase the precursor of co2 which is bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) by taking calcium carbonate (tums) or acetate. ...Read more
