My wife died 3 days ago from hemopericardium. She died instantly would there have been some warning in the weeks prior that something was wrong. ?
I'm so sorry to hear: The heart is enclosed in a sack called pericardium containing a small amount of fluid at all time. Hemopericardium means blood instead of fluid and if this happens from a rupturing of a vessel/aorta near the heart, it can impede the heart rapidly. Some people have this following a heart attack, but usually gives some symptoms. Rarely infection can also do this. Sorry for your loss. Please see doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When angry, do you physically attack the person you're angry at, or do you speak with them about what angered you? Do you let yourself cool down before acting? These are important. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Medical Necessity: What this means is that it is necessary for a condition you have. With dextroamphetamine I'm assuming you use it for ADHD.
