I am a female ,21 years old, 100 pounds 5'2".
When I was born, my mother was told to watch me for a few days
to see if I turned yellow. I didn't.
My main concern is that I was recently told that i have a heart palpitation.
I wonder if this has anything to do with childbirth.
I have also been smoking for three years(1/2 pack a day ave.) I have been stressed out lately
and have problems breathing, tightness in the chest and i never feel like i can get enough oxygen.
I breathe mostly out of my mouth. I tried cocaine about 2 months ago. I have been tired, depressed,
and have stomach pains frequently.
i have alos been stressed lately and wonder if that is all that it is.
i also had 2 root canals and tooth surgery in the last 2 -3 years.
am i looking in the right place?
It sounds like you have several complex issues going on in your life. Stress can certainly cause all sorts of symptoms. I cannot say if your symptoms are due solely to stress or something else. I would suggest you make an appointment to see your family physician.
In the meantime, I would suggest that you stop smoking and absolutely stop cocaine. Smoking will lead to heart disease over years; cocaine can kill you from a single use. In addition, both tobacco and cocaine can cause palpitations. Alcohol, caffeine and stress can also cause palpitations.
Again, with everything you describe, such as the depression, I think you ought to make an appointment to see your doctor soon.
I hope this is useful. Feel free to write back with further questions. Good luck.
