Why does my heart beat faster when I pee also I pee a lot am I drinking too much water? I drink probly 12 glasses a day cuz its sumer

Urination: The amount you pee will exactly equal the amount the you drink minus the amount you sweat. If it were otherwise, you would gradually either desiccate into sand or bloat up like a sponge. Your heart beats faster because you're metabolic demand has increased and your healthy young heart has responded appropriately to the need. If it were otherwise, you'd pass out each time you peed. ...Read more

Im 30 yr old female and twice now after drinking too much my chest becomes tight, and the area around my heart feels tight for atleast 2 days, which of course makes me feel anxious. Heart attack?

Im 30 yr old female and twice now after drinking too much my chest becomes tight, and the area around my heart feels tight for atleast 2 days, which of course makes me feel anxious. Heart attack?

No, but: Being 30 years old and female, unless you have significant other comorbidities (morbid obesity, uncontrolled diabetes or lipids, or drug use like cocaine), the likelihood of a heart attack is fairly low. That being said, excessive alcohol can trigger abnormal rhythms such as atrial fibrillation (the "holiday heart"), which can be dangerous in their own right. Easy fix? Stop drinking excessively. ...Read more

Had my first checkup in 10 years and my LDL Cholesterol is 153.  Have history of heart issues, I smoke and drink regularly.  How bad is this??

Well...: Rebecca, An LDL of 153 is a little over guidelines and a little concerning. What is more concerning is the fact that you smoke and drink regularly. If you want to shorten your life, there is no better way than to smoke and drink regularly. Please try and stop these self-destructive behaviors. Also, you should see a doctor yearly, not once every 10 years. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Celebrex (celecoxib): Although less likely than other nsaids in causing sodium retention, Celebrex (celecoxib) is capable of it. Are you consuming a lot of sodium in your diet? If so reducing the intake may help. Some people just tend to retain water for no apparent reason. I hope you are not eating a lot of licorice. ...Read more
