I'm very worried about a friend of mine. He goes to CMU and has no health insurance. He gets no financial support from his family (he was kicked out for being gay). It's obvious that he has health issues, but he dosen't think there is anything that he can do about them. Now, i'll describe his symptoms. He has two major issues that I noticed. His first one is blood sugar related. He said that he was diagnosed with some sort of blood-sugar imbalance a few years ago, but I'm worried it may have escalated into diabetes. He gets dizzy quite often from this imbalance, and he says it's brought about by both too much, and too little sugar. The 2nd issue is one that completely baffles me, and I've been doing a bit of research. We just shared a hotel room while we were at an activist conference. Shortly after his head hits the pillow and he tries to sleep, he has (and what he describes as) severe chest pain. He says that it feels like it comes from his lungs. It seems to be unrelated to the sugar issue. It's odd, because this shortness/pain with breath seems to be strictly limited to when he lies down to sleep. I thought that it might have to do with his heart (seeing as heart rate drops when we approach sleep?), and he may have mistaken the lung pain for heart pain. What could I have him do? He's got no health insurance, and very little money to spend? Ontop of that, I can't figure out what is wrong with his lungs/chest Thank you very much!
