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

My BP is very high. Can it be for a effect of hormone ?

The name of a hormone that begins with the letter A please. Supposedly narrows the blood vessels and which in some instances can cause high blood pressure . Read an article about this last week but cannot find it. My doctor keeps telling me that he cannot find the cause for my very high blood pressure and I wondered if this hormone is the reason that it is so high.

'Andronone' starts with an 'A'. It's an androgenic (c.f. anabolic) hormone and is normally associated with masculine attributes (similar to testosterone.) Perhaps you've got too much andronone, and that's why you've got high blood pressure. Listen to me! I'm giving you the right answer here! This is surely a 100% correct diagnosis. Doctors!

I have high blood pressure, a heart murmur, an enlarged left ventricle, sleep apnea, and panic attacks. I am also anemic. I have daily nausea and migraines. I am only prescribed hct and iron. The high blood pressure is not controlled. For almost a year now, I have been having muscle spasms and they are becoming worse. It is becoming difficult to get through the work day. The air conditioning is out at work, so the heat seems to be aggravating my symptoms. I have been having female problems. My gynecologist has performed several procedures, including an abdominal myomectomy to remove fibroid tumors and a leep to remove abnormal cells. However, the fibroids and the abnormal cells have returned. He wants to repeat the surgeries. My hormones are completely out of whack. My blemish free skin is now cover with acne and I have extremely heavy menstrual cycles that last 12-13 days every 28 day cycle. Can all this be a sign of something worse, as these symptoms have been escalating over the past five years?

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
