My name is ***** ***** and I had a leg ablation on my right

Customer Question

My name is ***** ***** and I had a leg ablation on my right leg about 5 weeks ago. The leg is still swollen, and today I feel like there is pressure on the right side of my chest, and I have a bad headache along with nausea. My blood pressure runs low, but when my husband took about 30 minutes ago, it was 144/99 and my heart rate was 84. Is this anything to be concerned about?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I still have a lot of swelling in my feet, ankles, and leg 5 weeks out of the ablation.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Thanks for requesting me
Yes go to the ER
You need an EKG to rule out a heart problem

With your history, pressure in the chest and nausea with an increase in BP is angina until proven other wise.
