Chest pain: It sounds like it may be musculoskeletal but always good to ensure. Ice packs and moist heat will definitely help me move in the right direction with gentle stretching and massaging. This type of pain can be very painful so an Ibuprofen may help to. Make sure you take deep breaths or else you may be at risk for a lung infection from taking shallow breaths. ...Read more

What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

Interesting question: In theory 220- age is maximum heart rate, but I have seen some people exceed this formula, the real question is target heart rate- probably 60-70% of this according to exercise physiology - about 112 for you. If you run a bit higher comfortably, don't worry. As you excercise more your heart rate may drop as you get more fit. Still, you don't have to go that hard to get benefits. Be well! ...Read more

My EKG showed low voltage in the limb leads. My doctor wasnt concerned. Im 38 year old female BMI 19.5 I had a previousnormal EKG should I be worrie?

My EKG showed low voltage in the limb leads. My doctor wasnt concerned. Im 38 year old female BMI 19.5   I had a previousnormal EKG should I be worrie?

NO: Low voltage on an EKG usually is caused by placement of the leads. This usually does happen from the limb leads because they are placed farther than the precordial leads. Also, they can be placed at different locations. For example more toward your ankle on one EKG versus closer or at your knee on another. ...Read more
