Went to ER last weekend with chest tightness, lethargy, headache

Went to ER last weekend with chest tightness, lethargy, headache and elevated BP. I have hypertension and it is controlled very well with meds: losartan hcl 100mg/25, Nifedipime ER 30 Mg and carvedilol. No was 167 over 98 upon arrival. 5 baby aspirin later it was down to 103/67. It was recommended I add 1 baby aspirin to my routine until my cardio appt. EKG was normal and CT scan of hear was negative. Since then headache remains. Getting a bit worse. Still have some dizziness. There was tingling in my right arm one day. Still very tired and over all I feel very strange. No prob speaking, no weakness in my limbs but increasingly hard to focus. Cardio appt is on 11/8. Any ideas?

Hi, I ve been having shortness of breath and some chest tightness. Went to the ER a week ago and EKG, xrays, and blood work came back good. I counted it as just stress. Went to doc for follow up and they realized my blood pressure was a little high. Again, I counted it as just a result of stress. My symptoms have not gone away even though I have made every point to be rested and stress free. Today at my job the systems got worse, to the point where I had gotten light headed/dizzy and experiencing nausea in addition to headaches. I sit at a desk all day but other than that I m healthy (walk everyday). I m a 35 yr old female about 120 lbs. I m worried that this could be more than stress. When I m laying in bed at night, its not that bad, neither is is it that bad in the morning, but by noon I m overwhelmed with these symptoms. I feel like I m drowning!. What could this be?

Hi there, recently I have felt tight in my chest (a bit short of breath) and my eyes are a bit sore. I occasionally have a headache and sometimes my joints are a bit sore as well. I m not in a lit of discomfort, and don t have a fever - but am a bit concerned as my chest has now felt like this for a couple of weeks. Do the symptoms sound familiar to you?
