Chest pressure ...heart attack? I had anxiety before but now is different coz pressure all day im 22 no pain just pressure what do u suggest please?
Evaluation: It is very unlikely that you're having a heart attack, but it's worth an exam to rule it out. Just be sure you are convinced so that you can drop that worry. If it is anxiety, please consider a CBT therapist to learn skills to avoid, reduce and manage anxiety. If meds are needed, they'll refer you for them. I hope it goes well. ...Read more
I am taking thyroid pills everyday. But sometimes i feel pressure on my chest & feel nervous. What could be the reason?
Need lab test : Recommend having your thyroid levels (t3, t4, total, free, reverse, uptake, ...) checked to be sure your body is not getting more than it needs. If all levels are normal sometime taking the medication at bedtime instead of 1st thing in am or changing the brand can help. Generic is less favored. Talk with your dr as there are other conditions which can cause you to feel nervous & chest pressure. ...Read more
Sometimes my pain gets extremely high and my pain meds don't work. I usually end up in ER and my blood pressure is sky high. Last time 186/119. Once my pain is under control my blood pressure is normal again. I worry about whether my BP being that high wi
Pain: Elevated BP is a reflection of the pain that you are in. Why don't you ask your pain doctor for a longer acting pain medication like the fentanyl patch, Oxycontin or mscontin. You may have better pain control and therefore less hypertension issues. I would also obtain a 24 hour BP monitor and see what your blood pressure is doing over a 24 hour period of time. ...Read more

I'm been on antriptaline 50g a while now now my sugar levels keep goin dwn under 3/4 even lower sometime how can I stop it it makin me feel very weak?
Go see your doctor: Unfortunately, not all drugs sold in uk & elsewhere are available here in the states (where this website is based & where most if not all mds are located). Worse, some drugs go by different generic & brand names in different countries. To make matters worse, when i searched for "antriptaline", google kept giving me "amitriptyline" which is an antidepressant that shouldn't impact sugar. ...Read more

I keep focusing on my heartbeat and my breathing. I don't know why but it makes me panicky and nervous as if i need to control my breathing. Causes? :/
On bystolic (nebivolol) 10 mg&i noticed when i take it i feel very weird & don't feel like myself. Blood pressure is always normal though. What do I do?
Not right for you?: Bystolic (nebivolol) may not be the right blood pressure medication for you. Any side effect is theoretically possible for any medication given the variability of human physiology. Beta blockers, of which bystolic (nebivolol) is an example, sometimes have "odd" side effects in some patients. Sometimes the effects resolve by themselves with continued use, but sometimes they don't. Talk to your doctor for options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 26 male using istamet 50/500mg tabs and my blood sugar levels are normal. But i feel uneasy for breathing n some slight pain near heart.
See a doctor: Istamet is a combination of metformin and sitigliptin, used for treating type 2 diabetes. You should not be having trouble breathing or chest pain from this medication. Those symptoms may be a sign of a more serious heart or lung problem, despite your young age. You need to see a doctor for evaluation. ...Read more
Why do I feel a lot of force in my veins, when i measure my pulse? My hr feels completely normal, but is just beats too hard. Is it hypertension?
I'm constantly shaking my legs. I keep getting chest pain on my left side and shortness of breath. My heart rate and blood pressure are normal. I've been to the emergency twice now and both times they have said it's anxiety. My question is how do I contro
I have normal heart rate but the beats are very strong so i feel my heart is hitting my chest and back.. What does that mean.. Im taking pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50 mg?
Evaluation: It is possible that the Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) is contributing to your symptoms. Certain conditions cause abnormally storng heart beat. The classic one is aortic regurgitation (leaking of the aortic valve) so you should have an echo. Excess thyroid hormone can also do it so you need blood work. Often a change in position will help -lying left side down usually make strong heartbeat worse so avoid this. ...Read more
I have high BP but controlled by medicine so it's always normal. I noticed that my BP goes high during PMS, ovulation & anxiety. Why is that?
Blood pressure: If you are in fact taking your meds, the commonest problem would be inadequate dosage of the medication(s) and/or need for additional medications to be added. If you are on very good doses of three medication groups including diuretic and pressure is going up there could be hormonal or renovascular problems complicating your status. You need to discuss with your doc ...Read more
I've been monitoring blood pressure. When it drops below 90s/50s i feel confused, shaky, anxious, so I eat salt and it normalizes. What is happening?
Abnormal BP: that BP is low and is abnormal especially if you're feeling lousy with it. You definitely should discuss with your provider - they may find it worthwhile to perform blood pressures in different positions (lying down, seated, standing) or they may clarify how often and when to check your BP at home. Bring your cuff with you to the visit so they can make sure it's accurate. ...Read more

When I have a panic attack my blood pressure goes up to 170/100. This lasts for about 30 min then goes dien to normal . Could this be dangerous ?
Yes: Please talk to your family doctor about this. This is not that common in panic disorder and makes me wonder what your baseline BP is. If you were my patient i would consult with an internist or cardiologist to try to find out why this was happening and to see what could be done to prevent high blood pressure spikes in the future.Makes me wonder about whether you could have a pheochromocytoma. ...Read more
Woke feeling strange this morning check my blood pressure was 160/98 waited thirty minutes checked again 136/83 what Could cause this panic Attack?
Ocular migraines!: Ocular migraines are a form of migraines that take place in the occipital cortex (part of the brain that interprets/controls vision). They lack the severe headache as common migraines. The symptoms are usually all or mostly visual and are typically described as flashing of light or ziz-zag lights in the vision.

I suffer from terrible anxiety. During a mild panic attack I took my own blood pressure at home and the result was 149/87. Can panic cause a spike?
Yes, it can: Anxiety can cause increases in the systolic and diastolic blood pressures although as long as this is not sustained it is important to realize that you are not going to probably sustain any permanent damage from this single event. You may want to practice deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, a representative resource is here: http://www.mtsu.edu/healthpro/documents/meditation.pdf ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
During work i had a mini feeling of fainting, loss balance. Dunno why, but i thought about it and had panic attack. Could you have a stroke from the blood pressure being too high? It's lower now.
It can be: As if you have a susceptible area in a blood vessel, it could cause a rupture(like an ruptured aneurysm) and it can place significant strain on the heart and brain, less so in the case of younger persons as yourself. Nonetheless you'd like to avoid spikes like this if possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will having even a small anxiety or panic attack cause your blood pressure to go up for the rest of the day?
Not by itself: Anxiety does cause BP to rise, of course. But hypertension as a condition needing treatment typically begins as "labile" hypertension--high blood pressure than comes and goes. If an anxietry attack triggers persisting high bp, it should be reviewed by a physician for possible treatment. ...Read more
Is it normal for my blood pressure to spike every time I have severe anxiety/panic attack? Took 1.50 Xanax (alprazolam) and my BP was still 138 at the drs.
138 Systolic?: Hoping you mean your blood pressure was 138 systolic (the top number)? Yes, your blood pressure increases with sympathetic discharge like you have during a severe anxiety or panic attack. It should come back down within a short while. The good news is that your heart is resilient and can deal with BP changes. Hoping you're working in therapy for anxiety also, and not relying on meds alone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Could having an anxiety or panic attack prior to going to the doctor/having your blood pressure checked cause your blood pressure to elevate even hours later?
Anxiety response: It is a common phenomenon that one's blood pressure may rise significantly prior to, during, and remain elevated for a period of time after a visit to the primary care physician or other doctor visits. The likely cause is anticipatory anxiety: the messages we may give ourselves plus or minus re what we may share &/or learn from the pcp. ...Read more
Endopat test: blood pressure cuff inflated i got anxious w/panic waves. Score=145. Test not done by cardiologist but had clean bill of health with him 3 weeks ago. Bad score from panic attack?
What?: An endopat score of >2.1 is normal. Your score of 145 seems to indicate that you come from another planet? Let's be clear: the endopat score is not a crystal ball. It has a 70-80% correlation with endothelial function which is only one factor in vascular health. How much did they charge you for this esoteric, non-mainstream, test that was a fad about 10 years ago? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I went to the doctor and was having a bad panic attack. They did my blood pressure and asked if I had hypertension and checked it twice. Is that bad?
Panic attacks: can make your blood pressure high temporarily. It is not surprising that your blood pressure would be a little high in this situation. In order to be sure your blood pressure is OK, you need to go see your doctor when you are feeling fine, and have your blood pressure taken, to see if it has normalized. Hope this helps! ...Read more
