The Heartburn Above The Ribs Hurts And I Can’t Move My Two Hands?
Good afternoon doctor, my name is Rosa and I am 25 years old. I have a history of gastritis. Today after I ate sushi, suddenly my solar plexus, which was on the lower left rib, hurt like it was being stabbed. I experienced shortness of breath for a while before finally the back of my head hurt. Then followed by symptoms of both my fingers curling stiff and sore. So are my feet.
Hello Rozelinne, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Your symptoms may be caused by the following:
1. electrolyte disturbances, such as calcium, magnesium, or potassium
2. seizure attack
3. food poisoning
4. Psychological disorders, such as panic attacks or anxiety symptoms
To find out your diagnosis requires an interview, a complete physical examination, and supporting examinations. Basic lab tests will most likely be helpful: calcium, potassium, and magnesium values. If the level is low, it is necessary to find the cause through various further examinations. Given that you had calcium injections while in the hospital previously, it is likely that your calcium levels were low at that time. The cause of low calcium can be found with further investigations, such as parathyroid hormone levels, albumin levels, and so on. you should discuss it again with your neurologist, because there is a possibility that the follow-up examination has been done before, and if not, it may be possible to get the cause of the disorder you are experiencing.
in the meantime make sure you consume enough calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Milk, kale, broccoli are foods rich in calcium. Avocado is high in potassium (bananas actually contain very little potassium) and magnesium.
that's my answer, hope it helps
