My son, David, complains that he feels "hungry" or like his stomach is empty... this occurs even after meals. It happens regularly and seems to me that he complains more about it in the evenings right before bed. We give him "tums" and sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't ... he is 12 years old 5'3" 80 lbs.

I recently had an ekg at the emergency room and while I

Hello, I recently had an ekg at the emergency room and while I don't have the report I did get an email notification that the QTC calculation (Bezet) was abnormal at 472. That was all they said. I am on remeron 15 mg a day and I know that can affect QT interval. Is this any cause for concern? I am very worried. Thank youJA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?Customer: I'm allergic to sulfa. I take Ativan 2 mg, rendering 15 mg, minocycline 100 mg (Lyme disease) and mepron 2 tsp a day (babesia do-infection of Lyme). I also take 400 mg of magnesium and probiotics dailyJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Just Lyme, babesia. I also about 2 months ago had tumescent lipo of the abdomen and have been having problems since then which is why I ended up in the emergency room. My symptoms have been shortness of breath, high heart rate when standing, chest pain. I am also on atenolol just 7 or 12.5 mg cause it lowers my blood pressure too much. I have a cardiologist appointment coming up but right now I'm very concerned about the QTC of 472

Question about hypertension. My father told me earlier that

Question about hypertension. My father told me earlier that he took his blood pressure early this morning and was reading 208/178. He took it 3 times and all within that range. He tried another blood pressure monitor and the monitor cut off. May or may not be related to the hypertension with the other monitor that cut off. He took all his blood pressure pills, waited 20 minutes and took another reading. Dropped to 180/93. Is there a such thing as such a drastic BP spike like that? He has had 2 hemorrhagic strokes. His first stroke put his numbers close to that 208/178 reading. But complained of no other symptom this time around. I know he is fighting a bad cold with swollen thyroid glands in his neck, been on antibiotics but with little relief. So my question is, can a BP rise and fall that much? What could cause such a spike? His blood pressure is now under control at normal levels.
