Sat, Jan 19 2:01pm · Side Effects of Metoprolol? in Heart & Blood Health

I had gout once in 2007. Four months after starting Metaprolol in August of 2018, I experienced a severe bout with it again and now it won’t go away- it goes from foot to foot. This is after eating a very healthy diet that would not cause the gout. I’m sure the medication caused uric acid production in my case.

Dec 5, 2018 · very high calcium score. in Heart & Blood Health

Taking low dose of BP med. 40 mg statin . I had to have an angiogram- no stents needed. Calcium was in the walls of the arteries – like my md suspected. From a previous event – no heart stack but I did abuse amphetamine was I was younger.

Oct 27, 2018 · Coronary Calcium Score (Heart Scan) in Heart & Blood Health

2996 calcium score. I said I had chest pain and I got the angiogram done. Calcium was in the artery walls/ so blood flow is not restricted to the ticker. The scores are exact but not absolute.There is alot of wiggle room in predicting an event. I was told to drop 30 and eat right , stay on statins and BP meds, and stay active (exercise) i.e. – live a healthy life. The rest we leave up to fate. Is she a beautiful siren in the night, or a siren in the night going to the ER😊❓❓

The angiogram is the best thing out there to check for CAD. Painless – I fell asleep during mine and woke up wen it was over. It’s a movie of how much narrowing or blockages there are in the coronary srteries

My LAD score was 1300 alone and my total score was 2996. I got an angiogram which showed most of the calcium was in the walls of the arteries and the blood flow was good- no stents needed. So keep hoping- try not to worry. You may be ok
