Hypertension (Definition)

A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure.

Are my symptoms heartattack or stroke? Have had tension in chest past 4 days, heartrate has been 100 to 129 bpm, eyesight slightly blurred, thoughts seem cloudy, blood pressure has fluxuated from normal to stage 2 hypertension.  I am a 42 year old male 5f

Symptoms : Symptoms of a heart attack can include: chest pain; chest tightness or squeezing; shortness of breath, increased sweating pain or numbness radiating down the arm (more often left than right) and nausea. Some people dismiss the pain thinking it is indigestion. There can be pain in the top midline of the abdomen, as well as vomiting. Pain may not present in the chest but instead can be felt in the upper back, head, jaw or in the teeth. There may be a generalized feeling of unwellness and fatigue. One fourth of people have heart attacks without chest pain. Stroke symptoms can include a severe and sudden headache. There can also be nausea, vomiting & dizziness. A classic sign is numbness, weakness or inability to move one side of your body. Vision may be haywire with issues like double vision, blurred vision or seeing double. Your words could be slurred or you may have difficulty expressing yourself. Feeling confused is common. There could be loss of balance or lack of coordination. I recommend that you be seen at an emergency room immediately. ...Read more

My BP always between 11-12 systolic and 7-8 disto
lic.last week for two days was 13.5/94 then normal again.is this hypertension?

Recheck your values: Those numbers don't make sense to me. But to answer the gist of your question, your BP can go up and down quite a bit over the course of a day, a week or a month. It's ok to have some "high" readings. That's a normal response to stress, anger, exercise , illness. What matters... Is it a sustained elevation? According to what you reported, it is not. Just something to watch. ...Read more

Is it alright to eat two eggs each day if I have hypertension? If I have hypertension, is it safe for me to eat up to two eggs per day?

.

Probably not: Two of the known contributors to heart attack are hypertension and high cholesterol. One egg yolk alone is said to contain nearly 300mg of cholesterol. We typically advise people to try and stay under that amount for the whole day. To know for sure though, ask your doctor to order both a fasting lipid panel and a high sensitivity CRP blood test. This will give you the answer to your question. ...Read more
