This is Dr. David

I would not change your blood pressure medications after one day and not talking to your doctor

I would continue to monitor your blood pressure and let your doctor know if your blood pressure is normalized after 3-5 days of checking.

if it continues to be good, then you might be able to stop all of your meds.

watch your salt intake which can elevate your blood pressure.

regular exercise can help your blood pressure as well

let me know if you have other questions.

I. for the last two weeks I feel like my chest can't inflate
Hi, for the last two weeks I feel like my chest can't inflate enough to get enough air, as if something is restricting it and I feel pressure on it, I have also been having shortness of breath, as if I can't catch my breath, but I am not hyperventilating, so I take deep breaths every few seconds, and sometimes I feel I got enough air, and other times I don't. I've also had heart palpitations, chest pain, and feel very congested. I can not eat though I am hungry, and I haven't had areal bowel movement in weeks. I also feel light-headed, dizzy, and faint a lot. I went to Urgent Care and all my vitals are fine. They think it is anxiety, but I am not panicked over anything (but this). And this just started two weeks ago. I was fine back then. What could this be? … read more
