Hypertension Accompanied By Throbbing Left Chest During Sleep On Their Side?
good night doctor
Hello Ry Ritongga,
Blood pressure> = 140 (systolic) / 90 (diastolic) mmHg can be called hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension is diagnosed from the results of blood pressure tests on 2 different measurements in an appropriate manner. Hypertension is a chronic disease (chronic).
Hypertension patients most likely do not feel any symptoms. Symptoms can usually be felt from complications of hypertension, such as nosebleeds, vision problems, chest pain, or loss of consciousness (for example due to hemorrhagic stroke).
Risk factors for hypertension include:
Family history of hypertension
Lack of physical activity
Excessive salt consumption
Other chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, sleep apnea
Hypertension therapy requires a combination of lifestyle modification, diet, and also medication administration. Hypertension drugs given can be adjusted to the age group and the comorbid disease that you are suffering from. Your doctor will determine the appropriate blood pressure target if you have other diseases. In patients with hypertension with diabetes mellitus it is generally expected that blood pressure <= 130/80 mmHg.
If the pressure is> 180/120 mmHg, it can be said that hypertension is urgent and requires immediate medical treatment. Complications that can arise from hypertension are stroke, heart attack, heart failure, aneurysm, ruptured blood vessels in the eye, metabolic syndrome, vascular dementia.
Heart rate (heart pulse) normally between 60-100 times / minute. The heart beats regularly so that it can pump blood optimally and good blood circulation occurs. If the heart rate is above 100 beats / minute it can be called tachycardia. Heart rate can increase after you move, when you feel anxiety, side effects of medications, and also medical conditions such as anemia, hyperthyroidism, heart failure, heart attack, etc.
Abnormal tachycardia will result in blood that is pumped by the heart is not optimal and does not meet the needs of body tissue. At that time the patient can feel dizzy, dizzy, shortness of breath, palpitations, and chest pain.
Palpitations or palpitations can be felt as fast palpitations or irregular heart beats. Just like tachycardia, palpitations are also more felt after you move, exercise, after consuming certain foods / drinks such as those containing caffeine, consumption of certain drugs, or due to certain diseases.
Further examination with a doctor is needed and supporting examinations such as heart records, echocardiography, blood laboratory tests, etc. to determine the cause of the tachycardia / palpitations that you feel.
If you experience palpitations with the following symptoms:
Out of breath
It feels like you're going to faint
You should immediately see a doctor. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
