How do I get him to understand he is going to give me a heart attack ?

My husband is giving me a heart attack and im only 21!! I have severe anxiety and he will not stop arguing...? I have severe anxiety, migraines,OCD, Bi-polar, ADHD,depression and high cholestrol,High blood pressure, which is around160/105. How do I get him to understand he is going to give me a heart attack? I think he thinks BP means nothing. I am only 21 and I feel like I wanna die. The doctors dont care, and I cant live like this anymore. I cant stop crying, I hurt all the time, especially when we argue. My head and chest hurts... all the way up my arm. My grandfather died at 49 from a heart attack and my mom had her first one in her early 30s. Can I have a heart attack soon? He thinks I am just joking when I say he is killing me, but Im not, between the suicidal and the head and chest pain, I dont know which is worse!!! Whenever I get upset my chest and head hurts the most. I feel as if I almost cant breath both in my chest and like someone is choking me... Please Help! My husband and I were split up for a year and just got back together in december. I had a lot of problems then but now they are getting worse.. I am being seen by doctors, counselors, neurologists, and every other type of doctor and nothing is working... The doctors just dont know. But how do I explain that high blood pressure can lead to a heart attack??? That is my main thing, then how to get him to listen. FIRST OFF TO THE JERK WHO SAYS WHO HE HAS TO LIVE WITH, I AM NOT ASKING FOR ANY ADVICE FROM YOU SO TAKE YOUR ADVICE SOMEWHERE ELSE AND SECONDLY, I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU TELL HIM THE HEART AND HIGH BLOOD PRESURE ARE RELATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SORRY TO SOUND RUDE TO ALL THE PEOPLE BEING NICE BUT MY BP IS HIGH FOR A REASON AND PEOPLE BEING MEAN ISNT GOING TO LOWER IT!!! OK... I am being seen by SEVERAL doctors, all I want to know is how to get him to know that BP and anxiety and heart attacks, possibly resulting in death are related! I do to all kinds of doctors... so please I am tired of people acting like I am stupid....

Megan, I am so sorry that you are going through this, especially with someone you love. The symptoms you describe are hard enough without the added stress of marital difficulties. I think you should leave for awhile, if you can. It does sound like panic attacks, but they can trigger heart attacks, it is called broken heart syndrome. Increased stress can lead to a spike in blood pressure, and continued stress floods the body with adrenaline, which can have adverse affects over time. If you tell him this when you aren't arguing, and show him some information, maybe he will understand.

You are a joke.   Leave him and stop bitching in public if you don't want repies.

Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

I dont understand how excersicing prevents a heart attack , would it give you the heart attack because it is straing your heat! I am 47kg and 22yo only little, I want to start excersicing but I am scared I will have a heart attack because even if I go for a short walk my heart is beating a million miles an hour

Is this true; Hi All, read this:- 1 Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job. 2 You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. 3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home. 4 Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. 5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself. 6 HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. 7 However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. 8 Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. 9 Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!! 10 A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life. 11 Rather than sending jokes, please..contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life…. 12 If this message comes around you ……more than once…..please don’t get irritated……U need to be happy that you are being reminded of how to tackle….Heart attacks….AGAIN… From: DR.N Sivakadakshm,                          (Senior Cardiologist)

Breathlessness, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, trembling hands, muscle weakness, depression, concentration difficulties, even when I eat a lot I don t put on weight. I have difficulty getting back to sleep when I wake up at night, pains/aches in joints and hands, mood swings, forgetfullness, body odour problems. When I twist the upper part of my body, where my thyroid is it feels like something is grinding and it blocks my airways a bit making it difficult to breathe. I take no medications apart from a ventolin inhaler. I have been diagnosed with adhd, tourette syndrome & depression. It really appears to me to be a thyroid problem but the tests have always been negative

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael
