hello. my husband suffers high blood pressure, an insurance company don t want to life cover him as his reading was 196/100 (his meds were finished and he had to get more). I now feel like he s a walking heart attack and am worried sick. I don t know what his reading is whilst on meds, but know that the reading is much lower. He s 43, smokes about 10 cigarrettes a day and drinks socially. Am I being paranoid that he s going to suffer some sort of major heart attack soon or is he okay as long as he takes his meds?

My husband is Diabetic, high blood pressure , has diabetic Neuropathy , Sleep Apnea , and has had a heart attack a while back according to a recent ekg , Takes his med like he should. For the last several months when walking across the room or for no reason all of a sudden he becomes dizzy and nermerous times fell to the ground but when this happens his face is white as a ghost, his ears ring and his eyes bulge and he says he s trying not to pass out. Afterwards I check his sugar and blood pressure sitting and standing and they are good. What could be the cause.

I have discovered yesterday that I am allergic to the generic wellbutrin....hives all over and taking benedryl. That I can deal with, however, I ve had chest pain pretty much nonstop. I have taken antiacids, but they don t help. I am not sure if a heart attack on a female (43) would go on so long. Had nausea as well. I had blood clots in my right lung in 07 that almost killed me. This happened a week after having jaw surgery. I ve was on blood thinners for a little over a year afterwards. How can a female tell the difference between bad indigestion and a heart attack?
