Experiencing Vertigo, And Pain In The Chest Together?
Hello, r nI’m a woman, I am 17. Lately I often experience chest pain (sometimes it changes its original position), and recently added Vertigo and constant headaches. I am also easily tired and recently I have a sudden nose bleed (even though it hasn’t been a nosebleed in a long time). I also experienced a drastic weight loss over the past 6 months (even though my diet remained the same / rarely exercise). Is there a very serious illness from my traits? I happen to have been diagnosed with Bipolar but I have stopped taking my medication for 8 months (but my mood is fine now). Do you think it will affect or not ?? r n r nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Chest pain, headache, vertigo, fatigue, nosebleeds, and weight loss that is quite drastic for no apparent reason can arise due to many causes. Not always, these causes are related to one another.
Here we try to provide you with a description of some of the conditions that might trigger your complaint:
Causes of chest pain: dyspepsia (increased gastric acid), fibromyalgia, bronchitis, tuberculosis, GERD (acid reflux of the stomach to the esophagus)
Causes of headache: migraine, tension headache, viral or bacterial infection, brain tumor, head injury, hypertension, cerebral aneurysm
Causes of vertigo: BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), labirintitis, Meniere's disease, cholesteatoma, perilimfatic fistula, acoustic neuroma, migraine, brain tumor
Causes of fatigue: hormonal changes (for example just before menstruation), viral or bacterial infections, chronic infections, heart problems, metabolic disorders
Causes of nosebleeds: excessive nose picking, blowing your nose too hard, exposure to dry air or excessive sunlight, sinusitis, blood clotting disorders
Causes of weight loss: tuberculosis, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, malignancy, other chronic diseases
A history of bipolar disorder that you have experienced before may be a trigger or a factor that aggravates a variety of your complaints, namely body aches, vertigo, fatigue, and decreased appetite that can lead to weight loss. However, before carrying out a direct doctor's examination, it seems that a variety of other possible diseases as mentioned above cannot be ruled out.
Therefore, you should check yourself directly to the doctor if your complaints are very often repeated, yes. Doctors can do a thorough physical examination from head to toe, or accompanied by supporting tests, for example laboratory tests, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on. If it is thought to be related to a mental disorder, you may be referred to a psychiatrist. Or, if there are other underlying diseases suspected, you could also be referred to an internal medicine specialist or other appropriate specialist.
Here are the first steps you can take to make your complaint improve:
Get used to eating regularly, don't be late
Eat small to moderate portions but often take 3-5 hours
Reduce foods that are too acidic or spicy
Do not always exert physical activity (except sports)
Avoid settling in a dry air environment or in the hot sun
Also avoid blowing your nose or picking your nose excessively
Don't stress, increase relaxation and meditation
Live your bipolar disorder treatment as advised by your doctor
Do not take other drugs carelessly (except those prescribed by a doctor)
Hope this helps ...
