A 71-year-old male asked:

Midodrine for low BP: Remember that Midodrine raises the BP only for 4 hours, so it should be taken every 4 hours to be effective. When BP is persistently low, more salt and fluid intake helps raise it. Extra salt can be added to food or taken as salt tablets or salt retaining drugs like Fludrocortisone can be used. But these measures are contra-indicated if he has congestive heart failure. BP can get too high too.

Acid reflux: These symptoms are typical of acid reflux. Antacids and stomach acid reducers like Prilosec or Zantac (ranitidine) should help. Make a habit of not eating or drinking very late so the stomach is empty when you lie down, especially no water for 2 to 3 hours before bedtime. Chest tightness from acid reflux is indistinguishable from heart pains.

Chest pain, WBC up: The most common cause of chest pain is Stress. If heart tests are normal, another cause would be inflammation of ribs and cartilages, called costochondritis, or stomach reflux. Persistant WBC elevation after UTI has been treated, suggests chronic infection as occurs in prostate infection or repeated re-infection of the bladder.
