I have cough for about 4 weeks and i have antibiotic treatment for the first 2 weeks. Now still coughing with mucus(sometimes thick green)&chest pain?

Get reevaluated: Without discussing your symptoms and medical history with you, and examining you, it's not possible to give specific advice. Most acute coughs are due to a Viral Bronchitis, don't respond to antibiotics and slowly improve over 2-3 weeks. Sometimes the cough lasts longer. Persistent cough could also be due to inadequately treated pneumonia. See Dr for reevaluation. May or may not need a chest x-ray ...Read more

Is pulmonary HTN (moderate) could be characterized by days better than others in chest pain or discomfort& general status? + i don't get any treatment

Is pulmonary HTN (moderate) could be characterized by days better than others in chest pain or discomfort& general status? + i don't get any treatment

Yes. Depends on many: Pulmonary hypertension affects not only the lungs but also the heart (as the two organs are very closely connected). Using oxygen (continuously) will generally help, but depending on the conditions of the day (heart status, blood pressure, pollution, smoke, &c) you can clearly have some days worse than others. It's important to get properly tested & have diagnosis confirmed (right heart cath). ...Read more

Chest pain with breathing deep for 4 days. On day 5: stinging, pulsating pain in left chest lasting 2 hours since waking up, intensity 3/10. Gone without treatment. Could this be costochondritis ?

Yes, but: These symptoms could also be more serious. These symptoms could be due to clot in the pulmonary arteries (pulmonary embolism) or abnormal blood flow to the heart. The additional patient information listed with your question implies recent workup with d-dimer, ECG and chest xr, so maybe you have already been seen. If you have not yet, please see your doctor or go to the emergency department. ...Read more

My BP around 170/125 & resting heart rate around 100, chest pain, radiating from center. Altace added to meds & tests ordered. Correct treatment?

Correct class of med: Altace is an ace inhibitor- this medication class can be very helpful. Given your degree of hypertension, i would suspect this particular one (altace) may not be sufficient. I would consider another ace inhibitor such as Lisinopril which may be more helpful to control bp. ...Read more

Had Hypertension emergency reaction to pseudoephedrine.Ever since, chest pain &terrible blood flow. Is this Endothelial Dysfunction? Whats treatment?

Disbalance in vessel: Blood vessels are lined by cells call endothelia. They make chemicals that both relax the vessels (vasodilator) & constrict them. Usually, the chems are kept in balance. in some individuals, the endothelium has a bias or predisposition to one or the other. The slightest thing can set it off. In your case, pseudoephedrine causes walls to overly constrict, raising blood pressure. Avoid OTC cold meds ...Read more
