What are the causes of high metabolism/how can I beat symptoms fatigue dizziness etc?

What are the causes of high metabolism/how can I beat symptoms fatigue dizziness etc?

Does not compute: Please repost and explain why you think that your symptoms of fatigue dizziness etc have something to do with "high metabolism." I'm not aware of the connection. In fact, symptoms of fatigue sound more likely to be related to a "low" metabolism. Your notions of "metabolism" don't really correspond to the way doctors think about metabolism. ...Read more

My stool recently was green with looked to be alittle red in it. Should I be worried only symptoms is dizziness?

Am I hearing U right: Concern is particularly great if your stools contain blood AND you are dizzy. Maybe these two issues are unrelated, or perhaps the volume of blood is only small & not clinically significant, but the combination scenario you presented us raises the question for a gastrointestinal bleed of uncertain activity. Get checked ASAP. ...Read more

Dizziness: Dizziness is a huge category, with many possible causes. You've already received good info from drs. Zapanta and fowler. I would add that dizziness may also be part of anxiety, which can cause many other physical symptoms as well. Dizziness can come especially with hyperventilation. That you're having some response to Clonazepam may be important, but not diagnostic. It's also habit-forming. ...Read more

Is it always ok to have low hr in 30s 40s when sleeping and resting lying down, if u don't have symptoms like dizziness and hr is higher during day?

Perhaps: It may be ok if you have no other cardiac diseases and have no symptoms. Many times, such individuals are in excellent physical shape with exceptional heart conditioning. However, i would have it checked out at least once to make sure you don't have a "silent" heart condition that may cause serious problems. ...Read more

However you should have your blood pressure examined while sitting and standing to see if there is a significant drop in your blood pressure while standing causing lightheadedness.

Hi, how risky is unprotected oral sex on me for HIV? Also how risky is protected vaginal sex? My only symptoms are dizziness and mild headaches since day 4 after exposure each day until now (day 10)...are these symptoms of ARS?

Hi, how risky is unprotected oral sex on me for HIV?  Also how risky is protected vaginal sex? My only symptoms are dizziness and mild headaches since day 4 after exposure each day until now (day 10)...are these symptoms of ARS?

No risk, not ARS: Oral sex is safe sex in regard to HIV; there has never been a proved case of transmission mouth to penis. Properly used condoms are 100% protective for vaginal sex, if the condom doesn't break. ARS doesn't cause dizziness or headache, and cannot cause any symptoms at all sooner than 10-14 days after exposure. And HIV is rare in UK women. Your symptoms may be just anxiety. No HIV test needed. ...Read more
