Question: I had cardiac workup including a norm stress test, ekg, echocardiogram all was norm except tranmitral flow suggests impaired LV relaxation. What causes that? Im worried because i suffer from palpitations and low blood pressure. Could it be an artifact? I also had a patch in my younger days when i used cocaine alot with friends. Never had an addiction though, just stupid. Could that have caused that? Could tachycardia or anxiety during the test cause it? Im worried.

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir , Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that your echocardiography is essentially normal and there is nothing to worry about . Your ejection fraction is absolutely normal . Impaired LV relaxation can be due to slightly stiif walls but since there is no diastolic dysfunction it holds no importance . Your report is essentially normal . Take care. Dr. Shruti

Brief Answer: follows. Detailed Answer: Dear madam, Thank you for reverting back. With aging or some conditions like hypertension etc the wall of ventricle become stiff so the relaxation is impaired which is called diastolic dysfunction but in your case it is not significant. Dr. Shruti

I have mild High Blood Pressure and take Linsopril. I am taking Mucinex with pseudoephedrine. I know the pseudoephedrine will raise the blood pressure some. Can I still take the Linsopril with the it or should I skip a dose? Will they work against each other.

My mother in law has been in ICU 8 times since August 2009-she keeps having to get blood transfusions because it disappears-but does not come out of the body. But everytime she gets blood-she ends up with high heart rate, high blood pressure, can not breathe, plus she has also had swelling in feet and hands when this happens and trembles just all of the sudden. We live in southwest virginia and no doctors can find anything to pinpoint these things to. On Tues morning she had two units of blood and by midnight she was rushed to ER, not able to breathe, ended up on a ventalitor(SPELLING) and today she is somewhat better but has been on oxygen at home since Nov. We need help and we do not know where to go with this. Is there a chance that she might have contacted Human Parvovirus. Help

I am a 40 year old female and have have some mildly high blood pressure readings over the past couple years. I am not over weight and fairly physically active. My reading can vary quite a bit but my systolic is usually 120-135, my diastolic can be around 84 up to 95 at times. I read and have gotten some conflicting recommendations if I need BP meds, it seems that systolic is the number of more concern, is this correct or is that just for older adults? Since I am young I would rather not be on BP meds if I do not have to. Are any supplements recommended besides reducing salt, diet, exercise, all these things I have already done. Thank you for your answer!
