Hello,

Regarding your concern, I would explain that your symptoms could be related to arthritis or chronic inflammation.

For this reason, I would recommend checking inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR, Rheumatoid factor levels, etc.).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist

My blood pressure usually stays regulated with my Benicar HCT, until yesterday. I always take my pill in the mornings. We had a taco dinner at church last night, and by the time I got home my bp had jumped to 170/99. I took another full dose of Benicar because my arm, leg, and face were going numb and my chest was hurting. I went to bed. When I woke up this morning, I took my pill as usual. Now, 1 1/2 hours later, my pressure is still148/94 and I just don t feel right. What is going on?

I had a baby 2 months ago. The last 2 or 3 wks of my pregnancy I developed high blood pressure and chest pain on the right side and and under the chest bone in two spots. I had no sign of protein in my urine or any other signs of pre eclampsia. They did not prescribe any medications. I continued having high blood pressure after I had the baby and was prescribed different blood pressure medicines. I have had chest pain still that radiates into different places and pain in my right shoulder blade. I get a tightness in my chest and lower throat area. I sometimes get a pain in my right shoulder and in my right arm. Less often than my left. I have had anxiety before but I sometimes get a nervous sensation which I would describe as anxiety that I have never felt. I feel fatigued easily. I have been to the ER several times to rule out heart attack and blood clots. I feel like im begging for an answer but my doc is blowing it off as panic attack and I feel that it may be more. This makes my 6th baby and I had high blood pressure a few months after I had my last baby with chest pain but it went away soon after it started. This time started out the same it just wont go away. Please any suggestions?

Hi I m 45 years old a smoker, this week I have had my heart beat faster and skip a beat when I check. It started on Thurs. at work it lasted about 10min mid day then again late that night as I was sitting and relaxing. the next couple of days it started again while sitting and getting ready to eat and just after drinking water it seems to be lasting a little longer each time. does the skip of a beat damage your heart, cause it stress?

I m currently having problems getting an erection or when I get one, it not very stiff and sometimes becomes soft. I m 48 and having stress-related issues (pending divorce). My doctor prescribed viagra and it definitely works. However, I don t want to become dependent on it. I m assuming my erection problems will go ahead as my stress levels decrease. Will viagra do me any harm until that time comes?
