Too high. Way too high. Get yourself to the doctor straight away before you have a stroke or heart attack. But assume that you already know this, which is why you're looking for confirmation.

Are our BP reading ok or should I take it seriously.Confusing a bit? I am 40 and my husband is 52 years and we have a day to day stressful life and have been checking our BP daily. The readings show as follows: 40 yrs - between 100 - 108 Sys and 68 - 72 Dia ( I feel a little dizzy at times ) 52 yrs - between 150 - 159 Sys and 99 - 110 Dia Are we in the range of Hypertension and do we need to take medication? Pls advise Thanks Note: I use BEURER BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR, and i dont know how accurate it is. Is anyone out there using this same item, would like to know if this is a good one, its quiet expensive though, some information would be useful Can I do walking for 30 minutes in my case ( as my BP sounds low ) and my husband cant use a treadmill as he is suffering from Dics. Any advise Pls .thanks Anybody having information about this blood pressure monitor that I am use, as to how accurate it is ?

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

Hello Doctor,

My aunt was unwell for the past week with a possible cause of parasitic worms. She had a stay for about 3 days in the hospital which resulted in her being very week. This week when she was home she felt giddy and hit her head to the floor. The various tests conducted have all Thankfully been Fine. She though is very weak and cannot even sit down on the bed. She is currently recuperating in the hospital and the blood, stool tests were norma. The liver tests were having figures on a slightly higher side and are awaiting the cortisol results in a couple of days. The practioners are trying to find the actual cause of the weakness. The ammonia levels were high and sodium was less. She was on a saline 3 concentration sodium. Can you please advise what may be the trigger for this weakness.

I feel my heart beat in my throat. It feels like I am extremely nervous when this happens, and of course it scares me. I have recently had extensive heart tests, including a nuclear stress test and the cardiologist said everything checked out, that if I were to have an issue, it would be minor and not life threatening. What could this weird feeling be and is it life threatening?
