Thank you Dr also heart is not affected by these motions as well?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
Heart is not affected at all Kevin. Rest assured.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Today after taking my blood pressure I kept touching each part of the blood pressure machine. Does this affect the heart bad in any way or is it separate? Also can Paxil make your stomach upset?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
Paxil can cause stomach upset. Touching the blood pressure machine does not affect the heart or do not cause any adverse issue.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can picking up and putting down blood pressure monitor kit have any effect on heart or is that separate and just Ocd?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.
It is just OCD Kevin. It does not have any effect on the heart, so not worrisome at all.

Please rate the answer so can be compensated for the help.

Best wishes and kindest regards
