Ignore no symptoms: Abdominal discomfort of any kind is not to be ignored--its a warning sign that something may be wrong inside your abdomen. Please see my many healthtap answers on the subject of what causes abdominal pain. Not all such problems are serious, but you don't want to miss the problem that is. Your constellation of symptoms may or may not be related. Get checked please. ...Read more
Hi, my pulse is very weak. I've been suffering lately from orthostatic tachycardia and faintness and had heart tests done but the very weak pulse is new with more frequent chest and jaw discomfort.
Too compicated: This is not an issue to be addressed on the internet. You need a good cardiologist or an internist with good cardiovascular knowledge to see and manage you aggressively.

Mineral deficiency?: Accutane can cause poor appetite and fatigue; it's a powerful drug. There are less dangerous treatments for acne. Vegetarians often become deficient in zinc and low zinc can cause low appetite. Try taking a quality multivitamin and perhaps extra zinc as zinc picolinate. But please see a doctor for an evaluation as there are many possible causes for your symptoms such as anemia or parasites. ...Read more

I recently became a vegetarian and only just noticed my nails are brittle and weak. What should I do?
Obese & trying vegetarian diet, but I soon feel weak, & my body seems to hang onto extra weight/go into starvation mode. Why? Thank you in advance!
Waiting on results from echo. I woke up tonight feeling very nauseated, feeling faint weak, had to lay on floor to feel better three times. What to do?
Get calm.: You just had an echo. You are very concerned because you were nauseated and had to lay down 3 times earlier. Try to get calm as much as possible. You may be concerned about a heart attack but this could be a COPD exacerbation too. For either diagnosis you should try to relax and find peace this could help. ...Read more
