I have two blood clotting conditions . Antiphospholipid syndrome and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura?

Hi
I have two blood clotting conditions .
Antiphospholipid syndrome and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. I was diagnosed with these conditions approx 10-12 years ago after the birth of my 4th child whom I had a normal birth but ended up having an emergency subtotal hysterectomy due to uterine atony . I had to receive 10 pints of blood to due the enormous amount of blood loss . After the birth I developed a pulmonary embolism on my lung due to surgical stockings not being applied and needing bed rest after the traumatic events after giving birth .
My question is could I have acquired any if not both of the blood conditions I have now due to the blood transfusions I received .
I had never had any blood conditions prior to the massive blood transfusion . Plus no problems in previous pregnancies except an emergency c.s with my first child due to her being in distress .

I have a crushing chest pain making it difficult to breath?

I have a crushing chest pain that feels like constant pressure making it difficult to breath. I am coughing up phlegm which has sometimes had streaks of blood in it. I also got chills and then it goes into hot flushes. I am worried as to what this might be as It came on all of a sudden it is causing me to become very fatigued. I don’t want this to impact on my daily life as I have children to support. I am usually a generally healthy person who eats a variety of a diet.

I had smoke inhalation, do I need to be concerned?

It is about 4:15 AM, 1/19/18. Two hours ago my truck caught on fire inside the cab. The whole cab filled with smoke, before I finally realized that the smoke was coming from inside the truck. My throat hurts, and I feel like I have a head and lungs full of smoke. I got home a few minutes ago by a taxi cab. Do I need to be concerned about this smoke inhalation?

Doctor said I might have light asthma, or is it Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)?

Im a 25 year old male, taking symbicort for 2.5 years. one puff twice a day. I just had a spirometry test and my FVC is 85% and my FEV1 is 80%. Took the reversibility test and saw no improvement. Doctor said i might have light asthma or none at all, im just on the low side of normal. However I looked up that if there is no improvement when taking the bronchodialator, then that could be COPD? since asthma is more reversible and should show more response to the brochodialator. Am I interpreting this wrong?

I almost passed out three times, diagnosed with acute bronchitis need second opinion?

In the last two weeks, I almost passed out three times. It starts with the feeling of blacking out and a sharp pain in the head. Other symptoms are nausea and vomiting, excessive sweating, shortness of breath and numbing/tingling feeling in my legs, hips and lips which causes me to lose balance while standing up and /or walking. These symptoms occur from one second (feeling completely healthy) to another and last a couple of hours. It last happened four days ago and since then the headache and numb legs have not gone away. I’ve been resting in bed all day and any physical activity causes me to lose my breath and makes it hard to breathe. Since I didn’t see any improvement, I went to see a doctor earlier today. He diagnosed me with acute bronchitis and gave me a shot and some antibiotics. However, I would like to get a second opinion, since it’s been ten hours and I feel worse. Also I have never been coughing and also don’t have a fever. I am female, in my late twenties and in good health.

I have been experiencing severe pricking sensation in the right side of my chest?

My name is (…). I am 45 years old. I am a healthy person. And I walk a lot.
I have been experiencing severe pricking sensation in the right side of my chest. I feel suffocated when this happens. And along with it i am getting heat lumps. My pain stops and as soon as it stops I get these heat lumps all over my inner thighs , stomach and on my back. And it burns. Sometimes when i wake up in morning my eyes , nose and lips will be swollen. Its been happening since 2 whole months.
I went to see the doctor. The physician gave me anti-allergy tablets along with gas tablets. I ate those but it did not cure my problem. So i again went to the physician and he said no problem….its happening because of gas problem. Then I went to dermatologist and she too gave me anti-allergies. She told me to eat those for 6 Whole months!!!! I am now on the tablets which she suggested me but those are of no use. They are not affecting me in any way. What shall i do now? Can I please know whether these signs are for any serious problem or something? Why am i facing this??

I suddenly feel extreme shortness of breath, dizziness, vertigo,sharp heaviness in skull, neck, anxiety and panic?

Hi Dr…I don’t have asthma..but whenever I drink a very cold/chilled beverage or even sit in air conditioner, I suddenly feel extreme shortness of breath, dizziness, vertigo,sharp heaviness in skull, neck, anxiety and panic. Now, this continues for many hours and feels like i will surely pass out or even die. I have seen doctors for heart valves issues but he said its fine. I have tried inhalers and beta-blockers, EFT tapping, drink hot liquids etc but there is no benefit. I once had attack in plane and it was horrible. My lungs test was absolutely fine. I am very puzzled. Im around 30 yr old man with no major illness. If possible, could you please suggest something. thanks.

I am having trouble breathing and have two holes in my chest?

Having trouble breathing and have two holes in my chest

I have 2 holes in the left side of my chest and 4 gashes on my upper left torso, also have a few gashes on my left shoulder, and my ribs are broken on the left side as well. Every time I take a breath, a weird blowing sound, along with frothy blood comes out of the holes in my chest, making it hard for me to breathe. The holes are in my upper left chest area and near my left nipple. They both blow bloody bubbles out in spurts each time I breathe. The holes are about the size of a half dollar coin and make blowing sounds each time I breathe. I called for an ambulance and the EMTs cut my shirt off completely and are saying I need to go to the hospital. They said I need to have oxygen and might have a “punctured left lung” and a “sucking chest wound.” What do these terms mean and why was my shirt cut off? What will the EMT’s and doctors do to treat my condition, and after I leave the hospital, what can I do for self care at home? Male
