Question: About 2 years ago I started experiencing dull achy chest pain. Feels like pressure. Sometimes at rest but mostly brought on by movement like sex, walking, while walking up a hill etc. When walking it's like I'm short of air my husband says. I have experienced a couple different times in the last couple months where I've suddenly gasping for air when doing nothing. Not lying down either. Yesterday it happened again. This weekend I had trouble with reoccurring chest pain. Then I had it for hours yesterday evening. I checked my bp which is generally 90/60 sometimes over 50. I got up to 147/90 highest. And stayed around 137/89. My face flushed for about 2 hours maybe more. And my husband noticed my hands tremoring. I could kinda feel tremoring in my whole body. My mother passed for Ihss at 35. My grandfather passed from ihss at 60. And my uncle was diagnosed at 25.

Brief Answer: Need an evaluation Detailed Answer: Hi, The symptoms that you describe may possibly fit for IHSS with low blood pressure and sometimes higher side. The description of chest pain is also described in literature. However dizziness, blurring of vision are also the manifestation of IHSS. At this point there is a need to evaluate and rule IHSS (Idiopathic Hypertrophic subaortic stenosis) with 2D ECHO in the wake of strong family history. Were you thorough and regular for annual physicals? Did you ever say this to your primary doctor during regular visits? Once IHSS is not a possibility we can think about other non life threatening conditions. Hope this finds a need to reach out to the doctor and get tested.

My 15 year old daughter is having continually low blood pressure readings. She is not dehydrated. She has had blood work done and an EKG that came back normal. The school nurse has been taking her blood pressure twice a week at school. She called and told me she is having a hard time taking her blood pressure because she can t even hear it to read it. What do you think is going on?

I m a 30 Indian Male, and I get both extremes of blood pressure. Recorded a high of 160/110 and a low of 68/45 on my digital sphygmanometer (or I think that is what it is called. I also suffer from arrythmia wherein my heart rate has often shot upto as high as 138 beats per minute. For my arrythmia is was prescribed Tenormin (varying doses by diff. doctors) for way too many years now. Even in low blood pressure, my heart rate is often as high as 110. Any cues for me?

I have typically had an average blood pressure of about 120 over 68-70. In the last week I have felt very faint and was very white in the face. I took my blood pressure and it was 80 over 44 on Sunday. Yesterday, Wednesday, it was higher - I think 90 over 45. I have never had low blood pressure like this and I just don t feel good. I have no idea what would cause my blood pressure to dip like this. What are some causes of low blood pressure? Are the latter ratios too low? Thanks:)

I think I have orthostatic hypotension but I am not sure. When I stand up I get the normal dizziness but my vision also fades to black for a few seconds. Sometimes I get tunnel vision. I am a runner so I thought it could be having a runner s pulse, but no one on my team experiences vision loss or as much dizziness. I am not dehidrated either. Is there anything I can do to stop this? Or do I need to see a doctor?
