Customer Question
Hi I had a heart...
Hi I had a heart attack in May 2016. It was caused because of a artery spasm which collapsed the artery. Any how. I am on 240mg of diltiazem a day and my blood pressure is at 125/91. Pulse 69. Is this ok or not. I've had a head ache all day and feeling a bit off.

This is Dr. David

I am sorry about your prior heart attack.

your blood pressure and heart rate are in normal range.

headaches can be from dehydration or fatigue or caffeine withdraw or excessive stress or anxiety or lack of sleep or other causes.

if you get better sleep, you could feel better and less off

it doesn't sound like your symptoms are due to another heart attack

but you should continue with regular follow up with your doctors and get regular testing and monitoring of your heart.

when is the next time you can see your primary care doctor?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
