no i dont have a history of heart disease
yes i have hypertension
my chest pain is towards the left side of the chest towards my left arm
Doctor: Dr.K.S.Dastoor, Doctor replied 8 years ago
well,troponins are the most sensitive markers for infarction and yours is normal.However,the elevated CK-MB may be an indicator of muscle damage.It usually recedes after 36 to 48 hrs.Having hypertension at age 22 is a serious matter.I dont think you should neglect your chest pain.You need to get an EKG of your heart.I suggest that you go to the ER and get it done.Its possible that you may have some ischaemic damage to the heart.Please see a doctor asap so that cardiac trouble can be ruled out.

is it ok for me to take attenolol 200mg
or should i go back to 100 mg
could you suggest another medicine for my hypertension
Doctor: Dr.K.S.Dastoor, Doctor replied 8 years ago
I'm sorry but i am not allowed to prescribe medication.However,please do not alter the dosage without your doctor's knowledge.It is dangerous to change your own medication.New drugs are available now and i'm sure your doctor will switch you over to them if your blood pressure is not controlled.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
