Could these be symptoms of high blood pressure ?

I got my blood pressure checked a little less than a year ago and it was slightly above average, so I didn't worry about it. Recently it seems I've been sweating more than usual and my face has been getting really red. Also, after exercising, I get a little nauseous, even if the work outs not to intense. Could these be symptoms of high blood pressure?

Actually, given that you had already confirmed medically that you have experienced a slight elevation in your blood pressure, the question you should be asking is if the elevated blood pressure might be a symptom of something else. Since the elevated blood pressure is already confirmed a little less than a year ago, now we need to add increased sweating and facial flushing. And of course, the nausea experienced after mild exercise. First off...whatever else you glean from answers in this forum, you need to consult with your physician. Individually, these symptoms may not be such a big deal, but most definitely the collective of two or more is certainly pointing to a problem. When two or more symptoms combine to induce a negative outcome, chances are you are experiencing a significant and adverse health event. In your case, you should be concerned about possible cardio or vascular disease. The good news is that if these symptoms are relatively new, you might be looking at the onset of a disease process and consulting your doctor right away could forestall a more dire outcome.

most nights i seem to have a problem sleeping as my heart seems to be beating too fast and once ive set my mind on it it doesn t stop. to begin with i had panic attacks as i smoke marajuana and im quite a stressed individual but now my chest hurts regularly, and when i try fall asleep at night i ll be woken up all of a sudden struggling for breath. even after a walk or just going out with some friends my heart starts to pound, i m really really worried, if i know i can t die because of it i d be so much more relaxed but i m sure it s something more than a panic attack.

I have been having a tightness in my chest and a feeling of heaviness for about 2 hours now. It also feels a little tight in my throat and I feel as though I cannot get as much air in my lunges as usual. This has happened to me before and last time was a few weeks ago when I was on holiday... could this be something to do with the heat? Just before the feeling came on I was eating chocolates - I m wonder if this has affected my sugar levels or blood pressure perhaps. I am trying not to panic as I am wondering is this a panic attack without me realising its one?? Thank you for reading, hope you can help . Sara

I have been taking vyvanse for years now and since i have been in college sometimes i stay up all night to study, sometimes days at a time. I usually take 40mg in the morning and around 5 take another 40 and then around midnight take another 40 and repeat the same thing the next day.I experience a lot of the symptoms of overdose such as stomach pains, hallucinations, rapid heart beat, anxiety, trembling, etc. I did not know that it was so bad for you and i just figured those symptoms were from not sleeping. I have been doing this for almost 3 years now but since i have learned about it i have cut back but i am still nervous about the damage already caused. Are there any long term effects to overdosing frequently?
