Blood Pressure Heart Rate Calculator
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more

I'm having chest pains on the left side (breast area). I checked my blood pressure & heart rate-normal what could this be? I had the school nurse check my blood pressure and my heart rate and it was both normal. We even did some pulling exercises to chec
Hello. I can't diagnose the cause of the pain in the area of your left breast. I noted that you tagged this as cardiology, which suggests that you are concerned about your heart. I will list some symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However, the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. I don't hear you describing this constellation of symptoms.
Just because you were not able to reproduce the pain doesn't necessarily mean that it is not of a musculoskeletal origin. Your symptoms are very — nonspecific, so there are many possible causes. Being a single mother is terrifically stressful, if you feel stressed consider deep breathing exercises. It is very fast and very effective, breath in deeply and slowly through your nose. Raise your arms so that you can more fully fill the lungs, hold for a five count. Exhale slowly through your mouth. Do this about 12 times, it can be remarkably calming.
If you find that the pain is not resolving or is recurring, would recommed evaluation. Take care. ...Read more
