Diagnosed with costochondritis, having low BP. Reason for chest pain? - Online Doctor Chats
I was typing because I am concerned with a low blood pressure
When laying on my left side and taking reading from right arm
may I know your age and ur BP readings ?
I was very low readings....85/50, 96/48, 87/54
I am 30 Yr old male
5'11 175 lbs
On back though, on average, blood pressure at night is 108/68
In morning and during day, 120/72
But laying on left side, seems to see it plummet
No. It's while laying down. But I do get chest pains and have been diagnosed with costochondritis
But I am concerned something is being missed
My resting pulse is in mid to low 60's but sometimes just standing in place can be 90+
first and foremost, as long as you are not having any symptoms, and signs, there is nothing to worry about
Recently lost 25 lbs due to dieting
yOUR heart rate is normal
Ok, in last month, two times I have awoken with rapid heart beat and fluttering...like a spasm/dancing of heart
Middle of night- heart rate near or above 100
Is that a "sign" or "symptom"
Each time, I was on left side
that is completely fine
No? What is that? Bad dream?
So is a 85/50 too low?
Sorry- can you define syncope?
Anxiety possible while sleeping?
syncope, is sudden loss of consciousness
Does my typing/ symptoms sound as "anxious"?
yes bad dreams, can cause lack of sleep, or disturbed sleep
Can lower bp be attributed to recent weight loss?
I'm also practicing 3000mg aver daily sodium intake
your history, and your symptoms could be attributed to anxiety or it could be a physiological changes
can u mention me the BP on sitting position ?
On average. 115/72
that is completely normal
when u check ur BP, on one side, the blood flow to the heart changes
and infact it is reduced
I do get chest spasming that at times takes my breath
hence it can produced a low reading in the BP
Is that from costochondritis?
I just did bp lying on back
111/70 w 70 pulse
that is very normal
costocondritis, is a musculoskeltal issue ,and can cause pain, and such pain usually increases the BP
but its not affecting your BP, here
Can it also cause chest spasms?
I worry that I may have the following
yes, it can cause chest spasms and painful episodes
- Enlarged heart
- Atrial fibrillation
- Heart tumor
how did u get that info
I read it online
if u had such conditions, you would have a syncopes, faiting episodes, and swelling of feet, , breathless XXXXXXX etc
Would such an issue been discovered?
but i do not think u have them
as your tests mentioned would have detected them
And if so, could my heart change in 7 months?
and they are not seen in a young individual, without nay medical issues
heart cannot change to worse in so fast rate
Hope you have followed my suggestions
take care and bye for now
