Medical Question

I have had hives for a few days. The hives have cleared, but I find that my legs ache terribly and I feel very tired, have no pep at all. I took Benedryl for a few days but nothing since yesterday. Is there a reason I feel so exhausted? Last week and all time previously, I am a very active person, golfing 5 days a week and going to the gym several days a week. The hives started on a driving trip of 1200 miles, and began with itchy fingers and eventually moved all over my body, even my lips were swollen. They seem to be gone now. Help please. I need my pep back.

Dear Thomas,

 

It would seem that your symptoms, though it would have initially started with hives due an allergic reaction, now seem to have extended to your heart. This is explained by the tightness in your chest and neck. Given your age and history of valvular disease, this is quite likely.

 

I would recommend that you get an ECG as soon as possible, and consult a cardiologist as soon as possible. Tiredness, difficulty in exercising and chest tightness in a person of your age are classical signs of ischemic heart disease.

 

It could also be that Benadryl might be causing some of your symptoms, as it is known to cause severe drowsiness and sleepiness.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further doubts

July I went to sleep one night & got heart palpslittle did I know they would be there next day & three months later. first they were constant 24/7 and rapid. Went to Dr where two blood tests,EKG were performed with normal results. I have no symptoms. was underweight but have gained a significant amount & my palps have gotten gradually better they aren't gone. never done drugs, don't smoke& only drink occasionally but since this my drinking has been reduced though I've found drinking isn't the cause/nor does it make them worse. I used to drink a ridiculous amount of caffeine but have cut back since & drink one cup a day. few weeks ago I started taking NaturalCalm, magnesium supplement and idk if it works or no. Since July they have reduced gradually in their strength & frequency. Now only experience them every morning after I eat, doesn't matter what I eat or drink.gets worse if I go upstairs after eating breakfast but no other time. The other time I can feel them is lying flat tosleep

I was takin the depro provera 4yrs ago after having my son but was bleedin wen I started so the Dr changed me to the minigynon 30 tablets which I've been on\off of from then.been takin it 3months now constantly to stop period but I've been bleedin 3weeks now.not sure if its bcuz I wasn't taking the pills on time 2months ago.I've been takin this set properly.Im right back to bleeding since I've been taking only one pill a day bcuz the second week of bleeding I took 2 pills daily for 7 days and during that time I only had a watery brown or so colour discharge that happened at any particular moment and I only saw a little blood each time I urinated.The first week of bleeding I had some terrible back and tummyache.not a lot of clots. I have no burning or itching. Could this really be caused by the minigynon 30 pills and what should I do? Would seasonique be a better brand for me?please help.I've been from sanitary napkins to pantyliners in the second week and now back to the napkins again
