Yes, calm down first. Might actually help the breathing. You can't feel blood pressure, so I assume your heart is beating quite fast.

Hi, I ve been using a nicotene patch for 33 days and haven t smoked in that time frame but Ive noticed pressure in my neck, suspecting my BP, I checked it at the pharmacy and got 167/89. I ve taken the patch off and will discontinue use of the patch to monitor further. I m 64 and never had high BP so this alarms me a little. Thanks. Denny

HI, I was in an accident and now they say I have high blood pressure, not now but a while ago. I have an heart injury, back, neck and other. But how can you verify that in case it s just a doctor on a power trip or the insurance company that wont pay you claim or your insurance bills? They have grabbed me and put me on anti depressants and made me grain over 60 lbs and mounting. What if it medical fraud, how can you tell. They grabbed my bp machine and my scale gave a different weight than them and when I got out the hospital fatter the doctor said the weight was the same. But it wasn t true and they seem to play crazy like they don t know what I m talking about. And saying drop my claim.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
