Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

What are all of the medicines that you are currently taking?

Ask Your Own Cardiology Question
Cardiologist: DrDLove, MD replied 7 months ago

I had asked for some additional information and have not heard back.

High blood pressure, by itself, will typically not cause shortness of breath. However, high blood pressure does place additional strain on the heart. So, if there is already some borderline heart function, an increase in blood pressure can cause symptoms, including shortness of breath.

The low potassium is not at a level that would cause shortness of breath. The most common reason for a low potassium is because of certain medicines, which is why I ask what medicines you are taking.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
