Hi, My wife and I were running and she had to stop because she started to experience a sharp pain in the mid-left of her upper abdomen. This has happened to her before without any physical activity. It causes her pain when she breathes. She also believes that her stomach is swollen. We are thinking of going to see a doctor today, but any helpful ideas you can give as to what is causing this would be appreciated. Thank you Nick

I was hospitalized yesterday for very high bp (avg 190/115), did an ecg and had abnormal t-wave (inverted). They gave me a shot of nitro and iv injected beta blocker...a few hours later, bp returned to normal (128/82 avg). They released me, but I m going for a stress test in the next couple of days. Today my bp was high again this a.m., but is now averaging 90/60 or less, is this a sign of something serious going on, and should I get back to the hospital? I am a calm person, I d just rather be safe than sorry.
