Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Swollen ankles can be due to high blood pressure so get it checked soon.Bad cough can stimulate early pains so you need antibiotic for that also.Not being able to catch the breath is due to the space occupied in your abdomen by the baby. This will subside only after delivery.

doctor, I was released from the hospital after a 2 month bout of bi-lateral pneumonia. I had a trachea for 5 weeks was put into a coma for a few days while I was on a ventilator. The last 3 weeks of my stay was rehab. I had to learn how to walk again. I m 60 years old. So currently I am still short of breath, my legs feel like they way hundreds of pounds,I have a semi chronic short cough, my chest is tight and my shins and ankles are swollen with I think fluid. Any suggestions? Thanks Mark Ocken

I was hospitalized yesterday for very high bp (avg 190/115), did an ecg and had abnormal t-wave (inverted). They gave me a shot of nitro and iv injected beta blocker...a few hours later, bp returned to normal (128/82 avg). They released me, but I m going for a stress test in the next couple of days. Today my bp was high again this a.m., but is now averaging 90/60 or less, is this a sign of something serious going on, and should I get back to the hospital? I am a calm person, I d just rather be safe than sorry.
In the last few weeks, I have started having like a hot flash in my neck and checks; almost like I m blushing. I suffer with lack of energy, depression and anxiety (grieving loss of spouse of 30 years and mother) but this is a new situation. Currently being treated for high blood pressure with HCTZ in the morning and Norvasc at night. I take vitamin D (5,000 IU) daily along with CoQ10 and Xanax PRN. I m 64 and thought I had gone through menopause already. Could this be the anxiety/depression and if so, what supplement could I take to help. I have no insurance so medical testing is not an option at this time.
