Hi there - I take Benicar for my HBP - however recently my diastolic pressure has been over 105 for several days, and I am experiencing severe headache and racing heart - should I see a doctor or double up on my Benicar? I was out with my kids the other day and became upset over something - the pain shot up my back to my head and it felt like my head was going to explode for days - I went to donate blood and found after 3x s taking the pressure it was consistantly 124-130 over 104 to 106. It has remained the same for days now.

For about 2 or 3 months I have been having theses symptoms. I am fine and all of a sudden I feel my heart beat in my head and my face sometimes gets flush but I get very nervous. Sometimes it goes away and sometimes it lasts for about an hour. I take my blood pressure and it is elevated some but my pulse seems to be in the normal range. I also have had about 10 places at different times that I think may be spider bites but I beginning to wonder if I have an allergy or maybe I have an underlying problem causing both. I had my thyroid checked and it is ok. I did the 24 hour urine test to see if there was a tumor on my Adrenaline Gland and it was ok. Should I see a heart doctor, dermatologist or allergy dr.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... I am 27 years old, my blood pressure stays high. Since when I was 13 years my blood pressure was found above normal range. I was over weight but growing up I reduced my weight, however wasn t able to keep out of blood pressure. To check whats wrong, had all my tests and have had them time and again, nothing is wrong all comes up OK. Still the blood pressure prevailed my readings started from 140/90 at early age and now my avg reading is 160/110 despite taking Ace Inhibitors. In case I stope medicine the reading jumps up to 190/140. It has been 6 months that I have not been feeling well have had drastic problems such as difficulty concentrating, memory problems, losing plot while speaking, slurred speach, extreme confusion and sometimes palpitations or severe pain in my head. Kindly advise what should I do to lead a normal life? It feels I m totally different, my behaviour has changed in fact nothing seems the same whilst everything around is OK. Need your expert advise

years ago I noticed heart palpitations which led to panis attacks because they scared me 30 years later dealing with them ive noticed a link to them.the question is I believe the main trigger is in the garden vegetables from the store.I know this sounds a little bit reaching but I told my wife to lay off the frozen vegetables and they have decreased dramatically could there be a link or could it be the pesticides causing the to re-surface.ive tried to live with them for years and wished they woulg go away.yes its true anxiety and palptations are related but why would they dramatically increase.ive also notice when my blood pressure is a little higher than normal I dont have palpitations at all.so why would my blood pressure being around normal cause me to have them and being a little higher not have them.why would eating vegetables cause me to have them alot.its hard to find a medium area but since ive laid off the vegetables its bearable.ive tried everything humanlly possible.I guess if I never felt my heart beating would probably cure me.I also use to be a track runner in school years ago long distance runner is it possible that the excessive running triggered them?just searching for answers thank you.

I have had a incisional hernia repair after a hysterectomy 10 mths ago, constantly having uti and blood in Urine and sever bloating, when at it s worst I have palpitations and have to lay down, I ve had to change gp recently because of misdiagnosis, I m on strong antibiotics which seem to repeat every month, help! I m waiting for a scan because my left side feels as though there is something there. I seem to have to push for tests all the time, I know my own body and I cannot afford to go private a 3rd time.

I have been getting a numb chin for about 6 weeks now. Sometimes the numbness stretches down the front of my neck and sometimes I get it going up my cheeks. Sometimes it s across the front of my chest. It s like a moving sense of pressure and sometimes it s painful. I get palpitations and the GP is checking me out to see if it might be heart-related. I ve had a couple of borderline ECGs and a borderline exercise stress test. i m currently wearing a 24 hour monitor and I have an echocardiogram scheduled for Monday. The discomfort is really bad today though - chin, bottom lip, across my chest, just a feeling of tightness and pressure. I don t know whether it s stress or if I should get myself checked out immediately.

Hi, I have been suffering for 7 months with a whole range of symptoms and I seem to be getting nowhere with my doctors. After being ill for about 5 months I had an anxiety attack while driving on the motorway and now the doctors always revert back to anxiety as the root to my problems.even though I was ill for 5 months prior to the anxiety attack. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and Im on my 4th brand of BP tablets and beta blockers. I admitted myself into A and E on numerous occasions with chest pains, light headedness and abdominal bloating and diarrhoea but after an ECG, blood pressure and blood tests they say it s probably a reaction to the BP medication. I have been on an ECG monitor for 5hrs in the hospital, had a 24hr portable ECG fitted, loads of blood tests, 24hr urine sample, cardio scan (the one with the jelly) and liver scan (because I drunk heavily for years but now have cut down dramatically). All tests have come back as OK but I m still suffering. My wife has been diagnosed with Helicobacter Pylori which, after extensive research on the internet, it s not certain whether or not it is contagious so I m being sent for a breath test on Wednesday and a 24 hr BP test on Friday. My symptoms are: Chest pain (front and back), chest tightness, palpitations (periodically), stomach pain, excessive gas (both ends), stomach swelling with an aching feeling in the stomach and sides, periods of diarrhoea (the last bout lasted 30 days), chronic fatigue, occasional blurred vision which lasts a full day, skin blotching on the arms, I can only lie on my back when sleeping…if I lie on my side I get weird sensations in my chest which makes me jump, I sometimes have trouble sleeping, movement of air from stomach to anus (rumbling), when driving I start feeling nauseous and get tight chested (it seems to be the car vibrations which causes it), I sometimes feel light headed (while sitting or laying down) and feels like Im going to faint, pressure in my temples and tingling sensations in my arms and legs. Can you please help?
