Causes High Blood Pressure Accompanied By Palpitations And Shortness Of Breath?
I had blood pressure 140 and palpitations and shortness of breath to ensure my heart’s performance was normal. I recorded the heart and the results tomorrow according to the analysis of general practitioners (while waiting for a cardiologist to explain the results of the heart record) were normal but I am still waiting for the results tomorrow. Am I said to have heart disease? Considering that my blood pressure is high. thank you before and after
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically high blood pressure and heart disease are two different things. High blood pressure or hypertension can indeed be one of the risk factors for some heart disease, but not all people who have hypertension have heart disease and not all heart disease is caused by hypertension.
Regarding your high blood pressure can not actually be called hypertension if the measurement has only been done once. It is necessary to measure blood pressure at least 3 times at different times to diagnose hypertension. Therefore, you should not worry too much for now. Try to patiently wait for the results of your ECG readings by your cardiologist tomorrow to find out whether there is a certain disturbance in your heart rhythm and the need for additional tests to be done for you. Additional tests may need to be done if indeed your symptoms such as palpitations and shortness of breath are often experienced and they interfere with your daily activities, or if any abnormalities in your ECG results are found.
For now, try to do the things below:
Get enough sleep and rest every day (sleep at least 7-9 hours a day) Reduce salt consumption (include also processed foods that contain lots of salt) Avoid smoking Avoid drinking coffee and alcohol Reduce weight if there is excess weight Reduce stress
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
