Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

Yes he has bad anxiety problems when he gets around a crowd of people loud noises when he goes to the doctor you can tell it bothers him a lot and he needs to take the Xanax during the day I think but only takes a half of one because he says that he cannot sleep unless he takes his full dose every night and then he only gets like five to six hours of sleep

He has extremely high blood pressure he has to take 300 mg of hydrazine a day he has bad blockage in his artery has a bunch of stents put in has congestive heart failure and some kind of artery disease

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.
