Pain on the left side is not necessarily connected with heart or blood pressure.HE HAS TO GO TO DOCTOR FIRST TO CHECK.. It can be connected with lungs,muscles or nerves. These days there are many disorders due to life style.He has to limit time on the computer and has to go out to take fresh air and do some walking or light exercise (After showing to Doctor)

I am 80 years of age and in good health. I am seeing a cardiologist because I recently developed HBP and will undergo testing because of its sudden onset. I am also scheduled for an IVUS and will need to obtain medical clearance for this procedure. I can see the cardiologist prescribing Echo and Carotid, but what about the stress test he is prescribing? Not happy with the stress test. Could I refuse to take it? Frankly, it s frightening me.

My mother always cry whenever she is alone and also have a problem of high blood pressure, gas & stone in stomach. She likes to talk to others and don t want to work anymore because she think that she is physically weak. She always think negative and used to recall all her bad memories of life in the mean time. In our family, My father is usually busy in work, my brother is busy in his studies and i am pursuing my higher education which will complete in next year. As no one is with him that s why she is very depressed and she always tell that she want at least one person to be always with her but one thing positive about her is that she believes in God and like to spend more time on religious stuff. I want her to be always happy, whenever i make a call she told me that, she is fine but she used to cry at least 2 times in 3 days and sometimes more. So, what could be the best treatment to her

I have to ask again do you know of an effective way of lowering blood pressure .... apart from medication that is? I m on Diovan and it does not seem to be helping. Been back to the doctor who is at a loss...so now I want to see if the alternative medicine approach will work for me. My present approach prescribed medication + healthy eating + weight watching+ excercise Looking at all the factors metioned perhpas in my case stress is the most potent so I will have to try and re address the balance though this will be diffilcult for me as I walk the tight rope most of the time. Also my weight is probably a contributory factor. So I need to get it sorted or else...I could end up having a stroke.

She has to change her sheets every night and is exhausted. She is on a fentanyl patch for chronic neuropathic pain as well as anti-depressants. She does not have high blood pressure, but now is experiencing shortness of brearth. She is not satisfied with the care she has been receiving from her physicians and does not know what to do? What would you recommend? Thank you very much.
