Is there any known correlation between high blood pressure and seizures (or high blood pressure causing seizures)? Or vice versa? Thank you!
Some connections: I don't know a correlation factor, but there are interesting relationships. Eclampsia in pregnancy is a type of seizure often brought on by high bp.

Here are some possible 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.

If you are having acute symptoms that are listed above get emergency assistance. However, if this is chronic pain, than it is likely not the cause. ...Read more
