I got abg's done and they said my oxygen levels were fine but I had high carbon dioxide due too hyperventilation could you explain further please?

I got abg's done and they said my oxygen levels were fine but I had high carbon dioxide due too hyperventilation could you explain further please?

The reverse.: I believe you got the information the wrong way. It is possible you can have near normal oxygen and high carbon dioxide. This happen due to hypoventilation not due to hyperventilation. If you are hyperventilating, the opposite is bound to happen. If you are hyperventilating, you are getting rid of carbon dioxide and the level of carbon dioxide will drop.

In the past 3 months my left eye has hemouraged suddenly. No coughing or sneezing or high bp. I have hyperventilation syndrome. What's causing this?

In the past 3 months my left eye has hemouraged suddenly. No coughing or sneezing or high bp. I have hyperventilation syndrome. What's causing this?

Thin blood vessel: I am guessing that you have a subconjunctival hemorrhage - bleeding under the thin, transparent lining over the white sclera. These are frequently spontaneous but can occur with sneezing, etc. They are usually benign unless they signify a blood clotting problem. If there is no bruising or bleeding elsewhere in your body, then you probably have the spontaneous and benign form.

I get hyperventilation &passout for 15 min when am angry, tired or bad weather it feels like I am paralyzed I can hear & sense tests r normal, help! ?

I get hyperventilation &passout for 15 min when am angry, tired or bad weather it feels like I am paralyzed I can hear & sense tests r normal, help! ?

Confusing: Hyperventilation comes frequently with anxiety attacks -- I don't know whether this could be causing your "passout" episodes or not. You say you can hear when you are passed out, so you are not unconscious. Feeling paralyzed could be a symptom of anxiety also. Please see your physician to explore these episodes further. You may need treatment for panic attacks or ongoing anxiety.

Could I explain hyperventilation?

Defined: Hyperventilation is over-breathing, which usually means that a person is taking rapid, short breaths using mainly the lungs, rather than deep slow breaths using the diaphragm. The condition is often caused by panic attacks or anxiety disorder, but it can be caused by more severe conditions. Anyone who hyperventilates for more than a couple of minutes should seek medical attention immediately.

How to know if I have hyperventilation?

Breathing fast: hyperventilation means rapid breathing. Some people do this when they are anxious. It can cause tingling in the hands and feet, and this may make someone even more anxious. If you are hyperventilating, you might consider holding a bag over your mouth and nose as you breath, so you're breathing the same air over and over again. This will help you slow your breathing, and stop the tingling.

How to know if I have hyperventilation problems?

Fast breathing +: When you breathe, you breathe in oxygen & breathe out carbon dioxide. Excessive breathing creates low levels of carbon dioxide in your blood. This causes many of the symptoms of hyperventilation. Feeling very anxious or having a panic attack are the usual reasons for hyperventiilating. However, rapid breathing may be a symptom of a disease, such as:Bleeding, Heart/ lung disorder, or infection.
