Why does my mother's left hand and chest pain (ECG normal ) after menopause ?

My mother s age is 48. She has had menopause 2 years back. She is taking medicines of high blood pressure since 5 years. Her ECG reports have always been normal. The last ECG report was 4-5 months back. Occasionally (since 2-3 years) she has pain in her left hand and heaviness in chest . She is little obese but is very active in her daily activities. Why does this happen to her??

Hi Welcome to HealthcareMagic





Since the ECG was normal nothing much to worry.. in Hypertensive patients some of them have chest pain, palpitation, because of high BP... hence you must not neglect when she gets chest pain... first she must be ruled out of cardiac disorder then the BP must be controlled...

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

Thanking you in anticipation
