Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Idiopathic Hypertension can cause pappiloedema;hypertensive retinopathy;blurring of vision.The medicine you are taking is fine and the effects of hypertension will also wear off and slowly the blurring will also reduce completely .But about the vision any comment right now will not be possible.After a particular time your doctor will examine you and then after retinoscopy only he will be able to comment on the vision and the possible recovery so consult your doctor.
Thanks

Hello-I went to a dentist in 1987, I had an amalgam filling put in -I did NOT know about amalgam then the dentist s assistant was the one that mixed the filling material together, which I felt was wrong and I REALLY believe she didn t know what she was doing. I then had this disgusting metallic taste in my mouth for many days-I had amalgam before and never experienced that s then I got this VERY,VERY severe pain in my head, lost vision in one eye. Back then MRI s were just coming out and the Dr. only sent me for a Cats can w/contrast and everything came out normal. Well, at the age 22 I was diagnosed with MS.I had all my fillings taken out ten yrs. later and that Dr. said it was the amalgam.

Sir, Good Morning. My daughter is 9 years old. Due to rubbing of left eye, cornea has become light steep (thin) and she got -4.0 / 180 Degrees / +0.50 power for left eye. And the right eye is Normal. After wearing the spectacles, many times she is able to see normal with the left eye. But sometimes in the classroom, her vision is blur. We could not understand the problem. Will the left eye cornea will become normal while she grows ? Is there any chance of cornea becomes more steeper without doing anything also. Is there any problem with -4.0 power to left eye only? Please give me suggestions and exercises to become cornea normal. Thank You Very Much. Regards, Ravi

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
