Can a broken heart cause medical issues?

My boyfriend broke-up with me and now he is goin out with this other disgusting girl. After I found out they were goin out I went to the doctor s to get my physical for school. When the doctor took my blood pressure it was really high 140/90 and I m only 14. and that is high for an adult.I have never had high blood pressure before so I was wondering if the fact that my heart was completely broken, could have caused my blood pressure to get high???

I recently took a fitness test for the Army they found a murmur using a stethoscope. I explained as a child I had a Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA). I failed the medical until I could provide evidence that it had been repaired which it has and I am sourcing off my doctor. Can a PDA that has been corrected still cause a murmur or am I likely to have another issue causing the murmur?

I was diagnosed with a very minor heart murmur during my senior year in high school, just 6 years ago. I ve never had any issues with it. Never been affected by it. No doctor previously or after has ever heard or mentioned it. Recently I started taking Percocet after wisdom tooth extraction. I noticed when it first started kicking in, it made my heart beat very oddly. Not pounding or racing, but it definitely felt weird and uncomfortable. I ve used medical marijuana and muscle relaxers before for work injuries and they never made my heart feel like that. Is it something to be concerned about or just a normal side effect of the Percocet?

Hi, My mother (healthy, exercises regularly, normal weight, 61 yrs old, slightly elevated blood pressure - managed with medication and proper eating) went to the ER yesterday because her heart starting racing for about an hour when my parents were shopping yesterday. She had tanned about 1 hour prior to the rapid heart and said the tanning bed seemed warm. Her EKG came back fine along with the blood work and they did say she was dehydrated. The doctor said she was fine and that he didn t see any issues, but if it happened again to go see her primary care physician . Does this all sound normal and could dehydration really have caused this? I don t think she drinks enough water...

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?
