Customer Question
I have high blood...

I have high blood pressure, slightly fast heartbeat among a 'laundry list' of the usual old lady diseases. The things are usually well managed, however, I have been under a terrible amount of stress...being harassed horribly by my neighbor!! The last few weeks I have had an aweful 'flutteringin my chest...feels like my heart!!

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Not that I know of. I have an appt with my cardiologist on 12/12 but I'm afraid! ...not my usual MO.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Well, I have Diabetes, Asthma, COPD plus a lot of skeletal stuff.

When these fluttering sensations take place do you feel lightheaded or weak or short of breath?

I know it's hard to tell but how long do these episdes last?

very...like the beginning of a panic attack. They last most of the time when I am home being harrassed.
Cardiologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

If those events are happening then I would recommend having an EKG done in an urgent care just to be sure it's nothing else.
