hello i am overwieght and i do smoke regually but my blood pressure have never got over 140/90 now today i have been sick all week and i worked all day long when i go home my face started getting really hot and i started getting really tired. i took my blood pressure and it was 151/85 on right arm pluse 97 the 174/102 on left arm with pulse 108 then i took a shower and it was 182/112 pulse 118 then 166/96 pulse 120 left arm i have been really panic over the first time i seen the first one and i am just wondering if there is something i can do now to help lower it real quick and then make an appt with my family doctor or is this emergency room.
Ive been feel pressure on my head, accompanied by redness on my face and chest. This have been happening multiple times throughout the day for about a week. I checked my blood pressure for the first time about 1hr ago and it was 139/88. I just checked it again and it s 127/97. Why is my BP doing this and should I be concerned? Should I be taking anything?
diagnose please For about a month now my face has randomly been getting flushed,red and warm. And when I have these episodes there s pressure on my ears and face.My stomach has been upset too.Now my face constantly has pressure and my temples feel like they are pulsating.recently I ve been getting lightheaded so i went to the doctor to find out my systolic blood pressure is high. he prescribed me blood pressure medicine. People say its probably because I m stressed but I m not really stressing about anything. I m suppose to leave for Bootcamp in 2 months and I don t want this preventing me from leaving. what s wrong with me?
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?
I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,
Hello. I'm male. I'm 45 years old and I got high pressure blood since 17. I am currently taking 5 drugs to control (not at all) my high pressure blood. In a recent Renal Angiography was discovered that I have my left kidney hypotrophic with important loss of parenchyma in the middle and lower thirds. Analyses of plasma renin revealed that is high.
This hypotrophic kidney (left) is working by 37% and 63% right according to a renal scintigraphy. The recommendation of my doctor(nephrology) is to get me out my hypotrophic kidney to control the high pressure blood and avoid having to take so many drugs.
