Bp at 160/100, usually at 120-130/80-90. Nurse put me on O2 and went down to 140/90 in 10 mins. Cardio workup done in '14, all normal. Am i hyprtnsive?
Needs monitoring: Your BP needs close monitoring as we need multiple reading, taken at rest, before we can know your true BP. If the next 2-3 readings show your BP to be at 140/90 or more, then you would be labelled as hypertensive. If the BP is below this level then you should recheck it again every 3-6 months for one year before you will be certain whether your BP requires medical treatment of not. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hi, I have just recently found out that my 8 year old son has a low O2 level when at physical therapy. It dropped down between 75-80 during his 45 min?
My BP~160/120 w/ 122 pulse/min. I snorted meth this morning and Friday night. I've had high BP my whole life. Will my BP go down eventually?
When it kills you: Chris, forgive my sounding disrespectful. You obviously care for your health, or you would not have asked this question. Your decision to experiment with methamphetamine is unworthy of a man of your intelligence. As a pathologist, I've seen what it does to people -- the warnings are basically true. Worse, you may live but lose the use of your mind and/or body. Please let us help you live better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I woke up this am at 5 am feeling a bit short of breath. I took my BP & it was 140/60 w/61 hr. After an hr it dropped to 123/61. Is it normal?
SOB: Your BP and hr are within reason. The first reading of systolic BP was high but it came down appropriately in an hour. Shortness of breath is definitely not normal. It is quite possible that sob triggered elevation of BP while sleeping. The possible causes include obstructive sleep apnea, congestive heart failure, or even heart attack. Please go seek medical attention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Difficult case: it is a complicated case obviously. first and foremost the infection has to be treated. i would suggest you to follow up with ID and oncologist very closely. importantly is to check if there is certain mutation like T315i mutation as this mutation is resistant to gleevec, sprycel, tasigna (nilotinib) - and should be treated with ponatinib or aurora kinase inhibitor etc. discuss with oncologist.

Have had sharp eye pain that comes & goes - on the outer side usually; lasts for a few minutes & feels better w/ rest. Sometimes w/ headache. Causes?
Consider dry eyes: Rest covers your lids and always feel better. You need to see your eye doctor and have them do a test to see if you have exposure issues. Always use moist warm compresses for better lubrication to coat your eyes with natural oils from your eyelid's meibomian glands. Also using lubricating drops and ointment at night helps. Get it checked out! ...Read more

Blood tests: There are a few diseases that leap out from blood tests. Most of the time, however, blood tests don't tell the doctor much on their own. These results fall into the second group. Good health to you. It is reassuring that the results do not consistently keep rising. ...Read more

I'm 19 male. I exercise everyday and i feel the right side of my throat beating. It happens for 3-5 sec. Stops then comes back. It's been 5 days. ?
Throbbing in neck: In your age group, nothing bad is anticipated. However if this sensation is more than just feeling the beat of your heart, you should see your local doctor for a more thorough evaluation. In the meantime, keep a detailed history of when it happens, what makes it worse, and what makes it go away as it could help your doctor figure this out for you. ...Read more
If i slept late, around 1 or 2 o'clock... But i slept for 8 hours, that's mean i woke up at 9 o'clock... Any side effects?
Heart rate got up to 108 while standing w/ shortness of breath, hot flashes, fatigue. Now sitting and it's at 90 still with same symptoms?
Cardiologist: A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate your accelerated heart rate. Postural orthostatic reflexive racing of the heart rate is possible, but a resting sitting heart rate of 90 is still abnormally fast. Testing for hyperthyroidism will be done. If no organic problems are found, you could be having anxiety and stress related symptoms in which case, stress management therapy may be recommended. ...Read more
Are nuvarings good for longer than 4 months if kept in fridge? Ordered 90 day supply, forgot had 3 in fridge. Exp dates on boxes are 3/16 & 7/17.
Conditional, yes: If the Nuvaring are kept in the refrigerator then they tend to remain active in preventing pregnancy for up to one year. However, I would use supplemental barrier contraceptive such as a condom to be certain that there is no failure with the "expired" Nuvaring. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
