Systolic 148 diastolic 93 with a heart rate of 88 - 129. Is it normal ?

Hello I have recently had chest pain tender spot about 2cm to the right side of the centre chest just on the outer breast. At times feel heavy chested and have had this now since January 11. I have been seen by GP and hospital and shows my heart quite irregular and generally tachycardic at resting from 88 - 129. This will change even if I just turn over. I do not feel out of breath , but do feel light headed from time to time. I had a VQ scan on the lung as I have had previous DVT in calf and had a positive D Dimer blood result. VQ scan indicated no lung clot. On another visit with chest pain I was informed that again I had positive D Dimer and so they wanted to do a CT scan of the arteries to check for a clot. After being in hospital 4 days a different consultant informed me that he had cancelled the scan as I am too young (35) for radiation) and told me I was probably hyperventilating. I have been informed by docs and nurses that this is very unlikely to be the cause as I seem calm. I expressed concern to GP why scan cancelled and they carried out another D Dimer in March 11. This came back negative. As I have had this tender spot on chest for few months can you get false negative results, or have I almost definitely not got a blood clot in the artery? I had a 24 hour tape last week which indicated that for a while my hr was around 147. The most energetic thing I did on the day was a little ironing as any sudden fast movement makes me have chest pain and dizzy. My blood pressure usually as stated above more or less but can be as low as 105 over 56 with a HR 110. I am currently not on any medication. I am overweight nearly 11 stone 5 foot. However during February over a 4 week period I lost 16.5kg unintentionally and this has remained off. Thyroid bloods were normal. I have just had a large gallstone removed last week (the blame for all my problems) over past few months my alt level on liver function tests have fluctuated as high as 105 and gradually back to 22, then back up again to 562 and came down again. Not been tested again to see if it is still ok. All other full bloods count and liver functions were normal. I have had 4 lots antibiotics for infections showing in urine since Jan. On one occasion I had flank pain around kidneys but other times have not felt pain. For around a year now however every few weeks I get a lower abdomen pain which is really bad and I can t move. This passes normally in a couple hours and then I will be fine till the next episode. I have bought some urine sticks and these show up low - high leukrocytes each day for around 3 weeks now. Nothing else is showing up. I have been told not to worry about this. If anyone has any further ideas what I should be discussing with my GP to try and get diagnosed on something as there are still lots of unknowns. Thanks.

Hi, I am 37, white female, 5 7 160 lbs.(recent weight gain from edema) no diagnosed conditions but 3+ years of being bounced around from Dr. to Dr. within my HMO and I am convinced there is no way that all of my symptoms are normal. Right now, my resting pulse rate is between 125-135 bpm and my blood pressure varies from 130/103 to 145/115. Yes, I have tried more than one cuff and replaced my batteries to make sure that the equipment isn t faulty. I experience dizziness, fatigue and I seem to get agitated when I have to make any decisions because my brain feels like it isn t working. My hands, feet and lips go numb during any activity until I finally give in and lie down and immediately fall asleep. I have reported this multiple times to my Physician and I keep getting told that I am suffering from depression. When did depression become able to give me every warning sign and symptom of a cardiac problem? I actually feel quite happy and optimistic towards life in general except for the sadness I feel is legitimate as I watch my life go by without me being able to actively participate. Any ideas on conditions that cause a high resting heart rate and systolic and diastolic pressure read to have such a low range. When I am completely hydrated and calm, even my lower end reads are 128/108 to 108/98.

I have a sister age 89 who is having blood pressure readings to vacillate from high systolic and high diastolic but then within 2 hours it can reverse and the systolic will be lower and the diastolic can also be lower and this goes on throughout the day. She is on Diovan 160 mg and has been told to double the dose and eventually it will come down and somewhat normalize but then it repeats the same ups and downs of these values. She is relatively sedentary and the higher systolics can be after sleeping all night in the early morning hours. She has had episodes with A-fib and fast heart rates. Is she in danger of having a heart attack or a stroke with these vacillating readings?

I m having inner vein pain on each arm, it s been reoccurring pain on and off for years. Four months ago I had severe chest pain, middle left, and since middle right, stabbing pain that is difficult not to shout out in agony- and I definitely have a high pain tolerance. Went to the ER the day AFTER I was up all night in pain, the freq upped to a break every few seconds and grabbing my chest and crying all night- last week same exact thing but in my right leg, after 7 hours of computer work, both hosp visits did their checks- no dvt and nothing in my lungs. I am overweight. I can t think of anything I could have- embarassing history- grandparents were cousins and married each other..genetic defect? mother has acute anemia and something else i can t pronounce that makes her reject blood transfusions and gr-grandfather had hemophelia. Just found out my med history when i found my biological family last yr. plz help!
