• Can you bring a portable blood pressure machine on a cruise?

    Your Answer: 
    It’s a $60 blood pressure machine (pretty small and can fit in a small bag) but i am wondering if you can bring that on a cruise. It’s not big at all so I don’t see the problem

  • I’m tired of this. What should I do?

    Your Answer: 
    I’m 23, and I believe I have heart problems. For as long as I can remember, I have occasional skipped heartbeats. Some times they happen very rapidly at once and will continue for a few days, and then go away for some months sometimes even years.

  • Wha just happened to me? (Semi-blackout?)?

    Your Answer:

  • Can you do mma with a heart condition?

    Your Answer: 
    I have aortic stenosis from being born prematurely and its when one of your heart valves is narrow, and I want to know if I can do MMA or Kickboxing with it. My cardiologist said that my condition isn’t bothering me at the moment, and that I can do any sport that I feel like. So if you have a heart condition can you do combat sports.
