Wife blood pressure is 184/102. Doctor put her on a new blood pressure med. Now arm and face tingling. Is this sign of heart attack. ?

Wife blood pressure is 184/102.  Doctor put her on a new blood pressure med.   Now arm and face tingling.   Is this sign of heart attack.   ?

Likely no, need ER: I would not be worried of a heart attack as much as a stroke or mini stroke given her high blood pressure. The safest thing to do is to go to the ER ASAP to see if the blood pressure is still so high as to be causing a stroke or ministroke instead, especially given the facial numbness. Do not waste time with any research about this. You should have your wife transported to the ER ASAP ...Read more

But his pulse is rapid. This is something that you may need to seek in person evaluation from his physician. Best of luck. ...Read more

My doctor gave me medicine to decrease my post partum high blood pressure.  My pressure is 125/95 now. Normal blood tests.  Should I see a cardio doc?

+\-: Depends...on your confidence level with your primary care physician. Sounds like you've developed essential hypertension, and it's management will depend on things like weight loss, exercise, salt restriction, and perhaps the conscientious use of BP meds. Many PCPs are gifted at effecting this treatment, but I see many such cases, particularly if they become refractory to first line therapy. ...Read more
