Dr. Hasan :

Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.

Dr. Hasan :

Have you had your thyroid hormone levels checked?

Customer:

no cant say i have

Dr. Hasan :

Do you feel spinning while being dizzy or feel unsteady?

Customer:

slightly unstable

Dr. Hasan :

Any chest pain, black outs, fainting spells etc?

Customer:

no

Dr. Hasan :

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want.

Customer:

when i get hot i just feel like i need to sit down and rest it takes about 15min for my heart to return to 90

Customer:

no worries

Dr. Hasan :

As per symptoms heart rhythm disorder is likely. The other possibility include thyroid hormone imbalance.

Dr. Hasan :

My suggestion for you is to visit ER because you need immediate evaluation and these symptoms shouldn't be ignored.

Customer:

but what do i tell them i dont have the time to sit in er for 5 hours

Dr. Hasan :

You need to have an EKG and may be a brain scan but if everything comes out to be fine, anxiety should be considered as a cause.

Dr. Hasan :

You must tell them that you are having fluctuating heart rate and feeling dizziness.

Customer:

so a trip to er is the answer for now

Dr. Hasan :

These symptoms always alert the doctors and they will not ignore your symptoms.

Customer:

ok thankyou for your help

Dr. Hasan :

I am sorry but your symptoms can't be ignored and you need an evaluation now. Your health is not important than anything else.

Dr. Hasan :

Anything else you want to ask?

Customer:

no thats fine i will wait for my wife to get home in the next hour then make my way

Dr. Hasan :

Yes that is the right decision and You are most welcome.
