I have an irregular heart beat that on occasion has been making my chest feel like someone is poking it. The poking pain feeling only occurs in a single location (right side of my sternum next to my nipple) and goes away in a few seconds. Went to the ER but the blood tests found nothing. This has been going on since 8pm Tuesday. I had issues sleeping until my wife came in, and when she laid down next to me I fell asleep. I have no issue staying asleep. Also, I have little to no appetite and I also have to burp a lot.

Hi, For the symptoms you are presenting, we need to rule out the presence of angina in such a situation since you have told me that your blood tests revealed nothing. I also hope that you must have got an ECG done(which can only rule out presence of any heart disease). Excessive burping and such symptoms can also be due to gerd(gastro esophageal reflux disease). First of all you will have to rule out any associated heart disease,since you are in high risk group(diabetic,mildly hypertensive). ...

Hi, You have written about multiple problems.Let us talk one by one. Regarding MRI whole body scan -it may cost approximately 10,000-15000/-rupees.

Aches and pains could be reflexion of an inadequately treated injury or associated anemia,vitami ...

Hi, You did not tell me about height and weight,basic solution always lies in dieting and proper work out plan,the diet has to be termed and counted in number of calories only then you can loose weight and work out plan would be better if you join a gym. Drugs can be given to reduce obesity but they would also work only if you work out. Drugs can be prescribed only after examination. ...

Hi, Most common cause of small height is inherited from parents,but since your parents have a good height i would recommend you to get your hormonal tests like growth hormone or consult an endocrinologist because they might be really helpful to you,since your height is to small as compared to your parents. The problem can also be related to your spine but spine can never make such a big difference to your height. The tablet you are taking is fine and can be taken for a few months,you should avo ...

I am 38 years of age and never had any issues with acne growing up. At age 35 I started experiencing a lot of acne on the lower cheek and chin, pustular type acne under the skin that would last for a weeks. What could be causing this at my age?

Hello, That would depend on whether you're a man or woman. For women hormonal changes are common the mid-thirties and this is amongst the commonest triggers for acne. There is also another type of acne called 'Adult Onset Acne' and this is seen in both men and women. This has no well defined cause but recent location change to a more polluted city, make-up use, comedogenic personal care products, dietary factors and oral medications can all be responsible. Please note that the information I ha ...
