my husband went to the dr. and his blood pressure was 240/130. granted he was nervous but that is extremely high. they gave him bp meds and sent him for bloodwork and a sleep study and he is going back to dr. nexxt week after bp comes down from meds. in the meantime, he is stressing out b/c bp was so high and he thinks they should have sent him to the emergency room. he is having no other symptoms.

I have high blood pressure, a heart murmur, an enlarged left ventricle, sleep apnea, and panic attacks. I am also anemic. I have daily nausea and migraines. I am only prescribed hct and iron. The high blood pressure is not controlled. For almost a year now, I have been having muscle spasms and they are becoming worse. It is becoming difficult to get through the work day. The air conditioning is out at work, so the heat seems to be aggravating my symptoms. I have been having female problems. My gynecologist has performed several procedures, including an abdominal myomectomy to remove fibroid tumors and a leep to remove abnormal cells. However, the fibroids and the abnormal cells have returned. He wants to repeat the surgeries. My hormones are completely out of whack. My blemish free skin is now cover with acne and I have extremely heavy menstrual cycles that last 12-13 days every 28 day cycle. Can all this be a sign of something worse, as these symptoms have been escalating over the past five years?

Prior to a work related car accident, I was in perfect health. I, was wearing my police uniform, when struck by an imparied driver in 2009. Since that day, while specialists were trying to figure out why I was in pain and having flu like symptoms monthly for a week at a time, and extreme pain and unusual fatigue my orth surgeon sent me for a bon scan where the nurse dropped the needle and put a belt around my elbows without steralizing. The next morning I woke up with 4 golf ball size lymph nodes under each arm. I had surgery and was diagnosed with a staph infection, I had home care for over two months while nurses changed the wound dressings under both underarms until they healed. As i tried to go for rehab to get strong again, I continue to crash and suffer from extreme exhaustion and was eventually told I had Fibromyalgia. I went to the USA for a 1 year treatment plan at the fibro and fatigue centre in Marietta Georgia. During my IV Injectoin treatments it was detected that I was not suffering from high blood pressure at rest 169 over 116 with a pulse of 90 to 98 at rest. Since then my dr prescribed blood pressure medicine and I take it but blood pressure is still 157 over 110 and my pulse is 104 at rest. What does this mean?? The last time I went to a heart specialst they advised that my heart was somewhat enlarged and mentioned left ventrical hypertrophy a condition athletes get as it happens over time with the heart having to pump harder. Any suggestions. I have been advised that Fibromyalgia causes our blood to thicken and less oxygen and a number of different theories. I really want to find the best doctor in the world to help me. Thank You, Katherne 46 yrs always an athlete until this accident and the driver and passenger were impaired by drugs on a monday morning in June at 11am and this is still before the courts and I just want it to be over so that I can try fetal stem cell or something to save myself.
