Well Mitch, I suggest you go tour the cardiac ward of your local hospital because that is where your headed if you don't do something. Your BP and pulse is high. It causes strain on your heart and can cause it to enlarge resulting in heart failure. It takes a while to develop but it is not reversible. Maybe it will get you in your late 30's or 40's. Of course when your 26 you will never get there - don't believe it. It happens quick. PS- The way heart failure gets you is that you suffocate. Lot's of fun. See a doctor and get that BP down. Take it very seriously.

However if I may on my left side for 2-3 mins and check again it goes way down. I m so scared!

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
