Hi I will try to be as informative as I can I have been on nephedipine xr 90 mg once a day for high blood pressure (which I had since the birth of my third child in 2012) I was on 60mg and then my dr. Highered dosage to 90 mg because my blood pressure was high at my appt....SInce my dosage increase I had been having on and off bad migraines and fast pounding heart rate..I mentioned this to my dr. And he suggested to take me off nephedpine totally and put me on lisinopril hydro.And my blood pressure has been normal at home sometimes even reading as low as 108/68...now I was thinking why wouldn t he just lower my dosage to reduce the side effects instead of taken me off it totally? Thank you LIsa

Hi in December in started microgestin birth control pills. At the first of the new year I switched insurance plans, which meant switching doctors. When I went in to transfer my prescriptions over my new GP noticed my heart rate was running at 140 resting (my blood pressure is still great btw). She has sent me for a EKG (which came back tachy), did tons of blood work (all normal), she sent me for a 24 holter (this one came back normal), & did an echo (which was normal, yet still running at 130+ bpm). I am also recording my vitals for her her at home. During pack #2 my heart rate was still climbing & I began to get chest pains & tightness. I thought about it a few nights ago and the holter was done on the last day my sugar pill week of microgestin. I began googling it & found other ladies who have ran into the same issue of a constant high heart rate while on microgestin. I messaged my doctor & let her know I was stopping the pill asap & we were reverting back to condoms. My question is, if it is the microgestin that has caused my high heart rate, after almost 2 months on it how long should it be before my body returns to normal. I stopped the pill 4 nights ago & I m slowly beginning to feel much better the chest pains are gone, the tight spasms are gone. I am still running at 110 bpm at this moment, so it s slowly declining. How much longer should it take to clear my system & my heart slow back down?

Good Evening, I had a few concerns about some recent symptoms I have been experiencing for the last 4 to 6 weeks. I am 30 years of age, 5 2 and 119 pounds. I have a higher then normal cholesterol level of 193. When researching I have read that anything under 200 is considered normal although the docs do consider it to be a bit high. I have also experienced low blood sugar in the past off and on for about 5 years. I seemed to have low blood sugar issues since I caught the virus mononucleosis in 2007. Honestly, my body has never been the same. I have been waking up at night about an hour after falling asleep with rapid heart rate, higher then normal BP of usually 130 to 145 over 93 and heart rate can get up to 110 to 113 at times. I start shaking all over and become weak all over and lightheaded. I feel cold in my hands and feet. I also have a lot of numbness in my hands and feet while lying down and while sleeping at night. this symptom has been going on over a year. I have been to the ER and was told I had a heart arrhythmia but nothing serious whatsoever. I also had a low Rdw of 12.2 blood test and low phosphorus of 2.1. I also have a drop in blood pressure when lying down. sometimes is goes as low as 87/44 but heart rate is within normal range. These recent blood tests were the only tests that were low. I did have an ekg which was normal and chest x-ray which was normal as well. I was recently thinking maybe I had a thyroid issue or endocrine issue. I have had basic thyroid tests done and they were in normal range but my direct T4 seemed to me to be on the lower end of normal. When I told a Nurse from the ER my recent thyroid test results, He said it was on the low normal side. Do I seem to have some kind of heart issue and why do I have these episodes at night? Sometimes the episodes are so severe I have to get into the shower just to shock my body. It can be very scary. Any suggestions or input you can provided me with would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.
