Please : Please call 911. Although this is an atypical presentation - chest pain, marked variations in your heart rhythm and numbness could be an arythmia / heart attack. Symptoms of a heart attack can include: chest pain; chest tightness or squeezing; shortness of breath, increased sweating pain or numbness radiating down the arm (more often left than right) and nausea. Some people dismiss the pain thinking it is indigestion. There can be pain in the top midline of the abdomen, as well as vomiting. Pain may not present in the chest but instead can be felt in the upper back, head, jaw or in the teeth. There may be a generalized feeling of unwellness and fatigue. One fourth of people have heart attacks without chest pain. Please call 911. You need to evaluated asap. Take care. ...Read more

What does depressed reflexes look like?

Can too much alcohol cause depressed reflexes?

Can too much alcohol cause depressed reflexes?

Yes!: Research have shown that acute alcohol intoxication results in diminished cognitive and psychomotor abilities. More importantly, this results in an increased number of alcohol-related accidents and deaths due to impaired performance of motor tasks such as tracking, and reaction time. Additionally, alcohol use tends to inhibit responses in go/no-go tasks, thereby complicating easier tasks. ...Read more

Access placement: If you decide to go on hemodialysis, your vascular access should be a arterio-venous fistula (avf). That is normally placed in the non-dominant arm. Another option is peritoneal dialysis (pd), where a catheter in placed in the peritoneal cavity so no arterial access is needed. See the image on the right. The catheter is not placed in any abdominal organs. Discuss pd with your nephrologist. ...Read more

My left and right arm hurt all day yesterday no S.O.B or chest pain today I woke up and my left arm only hurts. I took OTC pain relief but no relief?

Pain is a signal...: There are many possibilities for these symptoms and in the absence of other symptoms or feeling ill, I think it is reasonable to set up an appointment this week with your doctor. What seems to be simply muscle aches could be chronic and not life-threatening problems or rarely more immediate problems that need to be addressed promptly. At your age and with no other symptoms, the former is likely. ...Read more
