Hypertension (Definition)

A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating.

Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Diagnosed w/ganglion cyst on wrist 9/16/13 had 2 return in 6 wks. It has been recently hurting. Surgery? What to do? Not returned since hist: htn & pcos

Surgery: Ganglions are cysts arising from the membrane surrounding your wrist joint. They are notorious for recurring if not excised completely. A trained hand surgeon can remove them with a short procedure. Even after surgery they can recur but rarely do. All other methods of removal (including the traditional: hitting them with a big book) have unacceptably high recurrence rates. ...Read more

I can't catch my breath rapidly after running it hurts & burns when trying to catch my breath cause? Hist:htn/pcos 205lbs provera/zestoretic

Find out: You should be evaluated to see if you have asthma or some other respiratory problem that needs attention. It's great that you're running, but find out what the problem is. Provera, (medroxyprogesterone) a progestational agent, might increase your risk of blood clot-related problems in leg or pelvic veins, just as birth control pills can do. I'm not saying you should stop provera; I prescribe it myself. But get checked. ...Read more

Horrible headache w/moderate heaviness in chest & burning pain in l/s arm & sharp pain in chest 5-6 on pain scale no sob cause? Hist:htn pcos

Htn in 17 yo should be investigated to rule out secondary causes of HTN (like renovascular causes, hormonal causes). Pcos pts have a high incidence of Insulin resistance and increased risk for CAD due to a constellation of atherosclerotic risk factors. Check echo, consider pericardial disease, dvt, etc. ...Read more

Sudden severe lower back pain bending at waist to pick up backpack cause? Hist: htn pcos 209lbs 18yrs old fell on tailbone 2 yrs ago no md evaluation.

Too numerous: The possible causes are too numerous to go over in detail. Without knowing your height, a diagnosis of obesity is impossible, though 209 lbs is typically quite a load for the low back muscles, disc, and joint to handle. You may in fact have an issue with your lumbar facet joints even at your young age. A proper evaluation by a spine specialist is certainly needed. For now google coccydynia too. ...Read more

Rest, fluids: These symptoms are very commonly associated with a viral syndrome, often a GI virus. Or perhaps a virus is affecting your inner ear and that labarynthitis is making you dizzy, then nauseated like car sickness. Fortunately these symptoms usually go away on their own in a short time. Rest, drink fluids, consider OTC dramamine (dimenhydrinate). But contact your doctor in another couple days if persists. ...Read more
