May 19, 2018 · Exercise-induced Hypertension in Heart & Blood Health

HI I was doing this and it turned out I had Fibromuscular Dysplasia of renal arteries. Fibromuscular dysplasia is a condition that causes narrowing (stenosis) and enlargement (aneurysm) of the medium-sized arteries in your body. Reduced blood flow from narrowed arteries to the organs can affect the function of the organs. when it affects renal arteries exercise can induce sudden large BP change. It can be in arteries any wear heart, keck other organs. So I think perhaps ask you physician to rule that out it is extremely dangerous. My GP had sent me for MRI and the radiologist overheard my symptoms adn called her to change to CT with contrast he knew what it was with the symptoms.

I was 14 when I did in fact develop a heart murmur but I had symptoms of lips and fingers turning slightly blue. So are the other symptoms or specific ones you are looking for some to evaluate? IN my family we have Coroanry Artery Spasm and I have them as well. And it can affect teens. But generally there are some symptoms that help diagnosis it. Like blood pressures or shortness of breath or heart palpitations etc. With me and others we have normal ECGs during spasm so a simple ECG can miss it. Mayo has done heart cath on me to show that is so true. But do not jump to you having that issue. But if you have chest pain where is it and exactly how does it feel. Log how it feel s, where it is ho often what you ate or drank etc. They would help parents and physicians decided if it is a gastric issue it a another issue. But there are many many reason for Chest pain. Pulmonary issue can have sever chest pains. Describe it for us.

Please do beware that CoQ10 should be used without peperine which is put in some CoQ10 to help absorption. It actually can affect the absorption of you meds. with me it was Verapimil it interferes with the absorption and I then had BP issue and went back into Coroanry Spasms.

NIH (National Institute of Health) has a study there going on I am in for Vasculitis and RP is included. You can call them to get on their list of applicants. It comes in under the RARE disease program. They are taking people who are most serious in first so do nto be surprise if someone gets in before you. I have systemic involvement including heart and lungs so went up on the list but it took some months They evaluate you test you and send recommendations to your physician to implement. Mine Implemented this week start Enbrel. I go back in 4 months. They do nto pay travel. The evaluation is free. They will try to house you if in the Lodge on campus but no guarantee's that all of us can get rooms Low income gets priority for free housing. But the other thing you can do is that NIH welcomes physician inquiries to assist with suggestions and nailing the diagnosis. I have intermittent ear flares very infrequently. All joints affect. Sacroiliitis adn retinal vasculitis.

Have you seen a Vascular Disease Specialist? I encourage you to see one. Did they look for Fibromuscular Dysplasia in you? Mayo missed my Fibromuscular Dysplasia.

May 31, 2017 · Prinzmetal's/Variant Angina in Heart & Blood Health

A note I ma right now trying to get MRI on my lower back and I gained weight so the standard machine it to small for me even though my implant is MRI compatible it requires specific machines. SO they want to put me in head first and with arms by side and that did not work because machine is 23.6 inches and I am 25 inches wide. We are calling everywhere to find a machine that will work with the implant that has larger bore.Siemans has some just have to find a place that has one.

The Piperine/bioperine is used in some COq10 it help it be absorbed but with heart patient it often affects absorption of med so they are less effective.
