I am having heart palpitations along with dizziness, nausea, shaks, and I also had my period seven days ago and now I am on it again along with joint pain all over my body with weakness and tiredness what is going on I am only 30

Hello.: Hello. I don't know if those symptoms just came on. The combination of palpitations, chest pain, dizziness, nausea and dizziness is worrisome. I realize that you are a young woman. These are some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack.
Although your symptoms could be caused by a number of things and you are young, I none the less recommend that you call 911. It is important to determine if you are having a cardiac event. ...Read more

Allergic to prednizone and nsaids, is there anything else to take for joint pain riam to different parts of the body at night?

Allergic to prednizone and nsaids, is there anything else to take for joint pain riam to different parts of the body at night?

Depends on disease: It is very unlikely you are allergic to prednisone. It is more likely youhad a side effect from the medication. Steroids are required for life and Prednisone is a treatment for most allergic reactions. To treat arthritis there are several options. The first step is to determine what type of arthritis. Cymbalta, (duloxetine) injections, physical therapy are all options. I would recommend you see a rheum. ...Read more

I have dark brown lines that extend from in between my breasts to about half way underneath them. I also have lower body joint pain. Diabetes?

Can't say: Without doing some lab work! It is a very simple lab test to screen for diabetes, so I would ask your Dr for the test, and to rule out other causes for hyper pigmentation like polycystic ovarian disease. Acanthosis Nigricans (seen in some diabetics) can also be caused by birth control pills. It is more commonly located behind the neck, armpits and groin. ...Read more

An electric shock can be nerve symptoms, but at your age you may also have a bit of arthritis or a cartilage tear.

Gymnasts are increased risk for back conditions including spondylolisthesis which can cause radicular pain near the si joint. An MRI can help confirm.
