my blood pressure increases to the moderate hypertensive range & remains in that range (no prior problems with blood pressure). my heart rate increases to 110+ & the skin on my face, neck, chest & shoulder area gets very hot with no sweating. I become anxious, mouth is dry & hands become sweaty & clammy, knees weak & have feeling of needing to urinate. this increase in heart rate comes in waves maybe once per hour or so & then decreases some. This episode of increases in BP & Pulse happened twice (7 weeks apart), both times starting about 2 hours after I had laid down for sleep. All slowly returns to normal by the next day or so.

I am a 30 yr old female, 5 4 160lbs...I have PCOS and after metformin treatment I sucessfully conceived. I had preeclampsia while pregnant with my first child, who is almost 3 yrs old. My blood pressure reached 220/125 before I was induced. It returned to a more normal but still elevated 135/70 within a few months. Since January my blood pressure has gone back up to 150-160/95-105 and over the past weekend it reached 189/116 and would only go down to 150/98 when lying on my side. I have had a severe headache that began like a stiff neck on the left side over the fourth of July holiday and the pain continued for a few weeks on that side. I still have headache pressure in a band across my forehead and the back of my head. Last night my neck began to swell on the right side. I have an appointment in 3 weeks, but am wondering if this is something that I need to go to an urgent care center for now as I am fearful of a stroke with the high blood pressure.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
