Re: Chest pains
I hope your kidding about your doctor. They were supposed to have been warned about poo-pooing younger adults (especially women) who complained about chest pains or other symptoms of heart dysfunction.
If your not kidding...go directly to another doctor (one who is a heart specialist-not a surgeon).
As far as your high blood pressure if the meds are working with minimal side effects you should of course continue to take them.
If not, ask for another med, there are dozens of them both new and old.
Also you can in my opinion help lower your blood pressure the old fasioned way, with diet and exercise. AND start taking a Potassium supplement daily (depending on the size it would be a total of four a day,two with a meal). It is very hard to get enought potassium just by diet alone.
I'm serious about the doctor, he should have ran all kinds of tests and be concerned with it untill it has been completely investigated and re-investigated.
Its your life...not his..so take charge.
P.S. Once your heart health has been assured, you might want to look at treatment for anxiety as that can cause shortness of breath and unexplained pains.
