I've been experiencing severe panic attacks right before going to bed. I feel as if I can't breath, like I'm having a heart attack and will die. I also have physical symptoms such as a bad pain in my left arm and back, tingling in my hand and sweating.

I've been experiencing severe panic attacks right before going to bed. I feel as if I can't breath, like I'm having a heart attack and will die. I also have physical symptoms such as a bad pain in my left arm and back, tingling in my hand and sweating.

Be careful: Be certain that the cause is truly a panic attack: this a "diagnosis of exclusion." first you need to be checked carefully for other, more ominous causes. See your family doc if you haven't already. If it's deemed to be panic, consider relaxation techniques like transcendental meditation, yoga, self hypnosis with or without assistance from a tranquilizer (under the direction of your doc). ...Read more

I have tingling on the bottom of my feet what is that? It just started but I did have it before with some sweating in my hands and feet too

I have tingling on the bottom of my feet what is that? It just started but I did have it before with some sweating in my hands and feet too

Tingling: Tingling is typically a sensation related to a nerve. It can be a symptom of a host of problems including diabetes, a compression of a nerve in the lower back, or even anemia. If it's associated with unusual sweating in the feet, it might be related to an autonomic neuropathy.

In general, we have 3 different kinds of nerves in our bodies. Sensory nerves carry impulses from an area to the brain, so you know when someone is touching you, or if something is hot, cold or painful.

Motor nerves carry impulses in the opposite direction; from the brain to a muscle. If you want to wiggle your toes, an impulse travels from the brain to a muscle, resulting in motion.

The third kind of nerve in the body are autonomic nerves. These nerves control things we don't have control over, like how much your pupils dilate, the rate at which your heart beats, sphincter control, orgasms, "goose bumps, " etc. In the feet and legs, autonomic nerves control the smooth muscle that surrounds arteries, the vessels that carry blood down to our legs. If there is a problem with the autonomic nerves, the arteries can either go into spasm and less blood flows, or they can dilate, causing a rush of blood to an area.

I think your first step is to see your general medical doctor and get some basic neurological tests done to your legs and feet, like tendon reflexes, sharp-dull sensation, vibratory sensation, muscle power and other such tests. This would help focus in on your problem. The next step, assuming there were some abnormalities with the neurological tests, is to have an EMG (electromyography) and an ncv (nerve conduction velocities). There could very well be a link between your restless leg syndrome and that tingling you're feeling.

Hope this helps. Good luck! ...Read more

Should I go to ER if my glands are swollen a little feeling light headed sweating feel like my heart is beating fast feet and hands tingling and cold?

I will recommend: If the symptoms are new, to stay home hydrate yourself with water and gatorade. And if continue after 24hrs see a physician. If this is more chronic, still go a see a physician for a good history and physical. Ed were design to provide fast, life-or-limb-saving care. But if in doubt go to the nearest er. Only you can decide. ...Read more

I get head rushes fast heartbeats sweating sometimes when I walk I feel unbalanced and sometimes foggy eye vision and tingling in fingers on left hand?

I get head rushes fast heartbeats sweating sometimes when I walk I feel unbalanced and sometimes foggy eye vision and tingling in fingers on left hand?

Slow down.: How old are you? How fast are you walking and for what distance before these happens? Raised heart rate and sweating can be normal from exercise. The other signs can be from hyperventilation to cerebral vascular insuffiency, and it is impossible for me to say what exactly they are from without more information. ...Read more

Tight chest, heart pound so fast, left arm feels tingling, dizzy, cold hand and feet, sweating, suddenly stiff at neck & shoulder. Heart attack or anxiety?

Uncertain: You are a 30 year old female - don't know if you have any risk factors for a heart attack. However, if you have never had a medical workup and had medical causes ruled out than having it assessed is prudent. It may be a panic attack but we can't diagnose it. ...Read more

Light pain and tingling in left calf, occasional chest pains & sweats. CBC and D-dimer negative. Dr examined leg this morning, but now I have a bruise?

Not DVT.: Sounds like you are concerned about a deep vein thrombosis. With a normal D dimer that is very unlikely. Also the appearance of a bruise suggests a musculoskeletal injury and not a DVT. Hard to correlate chest symptoms with your leg symptoms. ...Read more

I have been using voxamin. Seazed using it since 4 months. Facing irregular beat excess perspiration and tingling in head. Should I be checked seroton?

I have been using voxamin. Seazed using it since 4 months. Facing irregular beat excess perspiration and tingling in head. Should I be checked seroton?

Luvox/ fluxoxamine: Serotonin syndrome is not the issue, but if you had a seizure on it, and are on other meds, you need your doctor to have you evaluated by a neurologist, you need a Luvox (fluvoxamine) blood level to see if it is too high, your psychiatrist should check for interactions with other bipolar meds (and I hope you are on at least one anticonvulsant mood stabilizer), and a test for cyp3a4, cyp1a2, cyp 2c19, cyp 2d6. The symptoms that you have are from Luvox (fluvoxamine) toxicity according to a monograph that I read. It recommended that you contact your doctor immediately should any of those symptoms occur. ...Read more

What to do if I'm 53 y/o white female with vice like chest pain, numbness & tingling & perspiration. Cardiolite stress normal. What is going on?

Poss false negative: Cardiolyte stress tests in the best laboratories in the world only have 80% sensitivity. You don't mention if your pain is exertional. That aspect of pain is far more important than the other descriptors you use. You need a coronary angiogram to clear the air. It may be normal. Your pain may not be of cardiac origin. But there is a valid indication here to find out. ...Read more
