I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I am suffering from BP. Cardiologist noted that I had minor valve leakage in my mitral and triscupid valve, and mild leakage in my pulmonary valve.

Just took my BP again today and got 184/107. Ive been on meds for it since November, and still nothing Obviously eating healthy and getting enough fitness, but still wont go down. They put me on a 24 hour bpmonitor, and my avg was 171/106. But, the cardiologist doesn t know how this is happening or whats causing it. He noted I had minor valve leakage in my mitral and triscupid valve, and mild leakage in my pulmonary valve. He says its very common with people and that im far to young for anything like this to worry about at my age (21). Im always getting chest pains, out of breathe, and occasional fainting , but he wont do nothing for me. The kidney disease and hypertension doctor just took 7 viles of blood, and a 24 hour jug of urine from me, I wont find out for a few weeks, but anyone know what they are testing for ? What could this BP be doing to me (Ive had it my whole life but just got the meds for it in November), yes im young and in great shape but gosh im scared and answer less This is my 3rd different kind of BP medicine, so I have tried multiples. Also, when I said im n great shape, trust me I am. I served in the military, so im in good physical condition. Heck Im 5 11 and weight 180lbs with not to much body fat. So, im def. going to rule that one out on you. Especially since with my current job being very physical, and I walk AT LEAST 2-3 miles a day at work, 5 days a week.

Whose to say what all the blood is for, they are probably doing all kinds of blood tests. maybe a complete blood count, metabolic profile -this tests your electrolytes and sugar, may be testing some of your hormones. Really they can test blood for all sorts of things! The 24 hr urine is usually a creatnine clearance-they want to know how much creatnine you are getting rid of in one day. They usually do this to test kidney function. So I hope this help. Good luck with your results.

I have bending down a lot and wrapping items to move. I do have next pain from work by sitting in not such a good position and by a long drive back and forth to work. About a week ago I started to experience dizziness/light headiness when moving, especially when I bend to pick something with my left hand. I have experienced like a fast heart beat. But I have taken my b/p and pulse the pulse was only 74 and b/p 140/74. I do take meds for high b/p and high cholesterol. I do have a congenital pulmonic valve stenosis. Could I have injury my self with all that bending and lifting boxes doing packing???

My 16 year old has a bicuspid pulmonary valve. He has been limited to not lifting more than 40lbs, but runnng is ok. He had his last checkup with the cardiologist a little over a month ago and a little blood was seeping back into his heart. He recently had chest pain that lasted a couple of minutes. I called his cardiologist and he said this is common pain for adolesence. Should I be concerned?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
