I am a 22 year old female. Healthy! 5 2 110 lbs. I have 4 kids. My chest has been hurting for about a week very mildly but i descided to check my blood pressure, and got a machine to do it with from my mom. It is a arm cuff digital machine, and i have tajen it since yesterday frequently in the same position and everything. It is all over the place. this morning it was normal at 115/80 but a pulse of 111 upon waking. then it has been as high as 168 as a top number and as high as 101 as the bottom. There was a few times it was normal. When I felt the worst however (really tired) it was 95/64. My pulse has only been under 100 once and then it was 98.

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?
