Her doctor had her on Claritin-D 24 Hour but then told her that would affect her because her family has a history of high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>. She then placed her on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e. Now she had panic attacks and heart palipatations so she stopped taking it. What's the next step and is it true about allergy meds being a concern with high blood pressure candidates? She's healthy now other than the not being able to breathe, coughing, and itchy dry eyes.
you can get tested by an allergist and have them look for heavy metals in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>, as well as ordinary allergies to food and pollen. A general doc should also do normal blood checks for all of the following: Vitamin, mineral, and amino acids deficiencies; anemia; again heavy metal toxicity; blood sugar levels; and perhaps do an adrenal hormone panel for you.
low blood pressure 86/60 (it usually runs 100/70). When the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> gets too low, I feel the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> running through the veins in my legs, and abdomen, especially the neck/head. I've been tested for diabetes-only abnormality is very mild insulin resistance, for which I take Metformin (500 mg. w/ breakfast; 250mg. with lunch). blood sugar tests have been in the low to mid 90's, with the exception of one that reached 101. I was tested for Lyme, Sjogren's, B12 deficiency, CBC's - all normal.
my blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> was okay. i didnt have a temperature. she prescribed me claritin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e, and singulair. they help the symptoms a bit but i still get those spooky dizzy spells, sometimes even waking up in the middle of the night to them. i also still get a lot of crackling in my ear. she just prescribed me lexapro for my anxiety.
Ok, One thing I forgot to mention is that I started taking propecia recently for the past couple of weeks, and I read other guys have had problems with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> going up and it irritating their eyes and head area, but i'm just a skinny guy, but this could be the cause so I will go off it for a while, and see if things improve.
For example, when i tell someone a stressful story or when i get really angry, I can feel the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> rising into my head and some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, then my head starts to pound. I have to stop, take some deep breathes, and try to relax. Also, yesterday I went to the gym to workout on the machines. When I start to intensify the reps, I held my breath to push that last couple of turns. I felt some pounding rising in my head. I immediately stopped and walked around for a bit.
My face feels like it is going to explode from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, my nose constantly runs, my throad gets sore a lot, and my ears hurt. I had surgery two years ago to remove tissue from my nose to enlarge my sinuses and it did help...but now I am back to square one. I take Zyrtec, flonase and anything else to help, also have been on COUNTLESS antibiotics. I also have asthma and it is making it flare up. I use my inhalers and Singulair for that regularly.
Since November 06, I started to feel pins and needles in my left arm that eventually spread to my right arm. The pins and needles got progressively worse in December and January. Most nights, I harly slept because of the pain. Due to the part work that I did which was very physical at the time, I figured my problem was related to that so I stopped. I told my doctor who recommended some physical therapy. It seemed to work and I did get some relief.
I am a 37 yo female with no serious illness, aside from severe allergies (taking Allegra D & flonase) and just recently had a 'thyroid storm' (taking Levoxyl). Have always had low or normal blood pressure except for twice related to pregnancy. 11 years ago, pre-eclampsia during last 8 weeks with BP ranging 135/99 to 147/131, headaches and protein in urine. On bed rest, diuretic meds and lots of testing, bp kept getting higher, so delivered by c-section 1 week early.
I've been to various doctors and have been urged to try decongestants, loratamine-based OTC's, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e, and antiobiotics. While the symptoms did mitigate and kind of have since flat-lined, it seems that the mitigation of symptoms wasn't really associated with any of those medications (it's too lengthy to explain the timeline here of what I took when, etc.). Anyway, I've had two CT Scans--one of my sinuses that found evidence of past sinus infection, a nasal bone spur, and a deviated septum.
The same tingling sensation came on, but rapidly spread over my entire head and there was a dull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> at the top and back of my skull. I felt weak and nauseous the entire day and seriously thought I was having a stroke or something. This went on for about eight or nine hours and into the evening, at which time I took a long walk with a friend which seemed to break my spell.
The doctor also mentioned that sometimes people just get high CSF <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> sort of like high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> and it can be treated with medication.
I'll first post my symptoms --------------------------------------------- - Tons of Mucus when I wake up and throughout the day - I wake up lie in bed I'm fine, it's not until I stand up I feel like something adjusts in my head (mucus) and there's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> in the top of my head and middle, not a headache though. Feel a bit dizzy and my ears kind of need popping. 20-30 minutes after standing pressure relieves a bit along with dizziness.
However, I don't think that was the case. My ear has been feeling on and off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> over the last 2 months, and now it is very annoying. My hearing ability seems to be OK, though sometimes my ears feel sensitive to loud or unusual sounds. When I swallow, I hear a crackling sound in my ear, not very loud at all, but pretty consistent. Also, just recently, the area near my glands has felt some pressure that seems to be tied into my ear problem.
I have extreme sinus pressure which causes my teeth to hurt on my left side, I also take losartan for my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> and my Dr, prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e. I am afraid to take it because of the side effects. can I take it at night or is the morning better. Im usually in pain for a few hours a day.
I just started taking Allegra and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e, again. Which I may stop taking. I have been doing fine just going for shots, but had a very bad allergic reaction last week (dogs/cats) and a doctor put me back on these medications. My asthma, which has virtually disappeared, occurs usually if I am around pets for an extensive time or over-exersion from playing sports. Sometimes at night in the summer with the windows being open.
Once I completed the round, the blurred vision, and head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> came back.. I have been using Alavert D12 and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e for past week. Just recently, have had vision issues again and dizziness. I cannot even ride in the car, I get like- car sick, too much motion. Then I feel panicky, because my head is not clear and the ENT office states that dizziness is normal. I am now starting to feel pressure on left ear, and I just do not want to have surgery.
Often I have full-body myalgia and excessive fatigue when the sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is acting up. I take Claritin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e and do daily nasal sinus rinses, all of which help, but have not cured anything. I also get brief ear aches and throat pain, with pain in my neck that a nurse practitioner told me was probably inflamed eustacian tubes. These pains never last long, maybe 3 hours before going away, and it might take several days to return.
Doctor listened to heart, carotid arteries, and conducted EKG (all OK) and scheduled a stress test. Changed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e to Nasonex and added additional 10mg Lisinopril – now 30mg). Discussed aging as cause of potential tinnitus in left ear. Continued to conducted regular gym workouts. Two days later (17 Mar 11) I awoke with left rear temporal lobe, upper neck sensations/aches, and increased pressure in ears.
My current issues – Head sensations in clusters (top, sides, and back of head), back pain/aches, bone aches in thighs, calves, and fingers, rushing sound in left ear at night or in quiet room, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> in rear sometime entire head. Also my scalp has been itchy for past 2-3 months. Have CT, MRA, and ENT Specialist scheduled in next two weeks. Am worried about underlying issues even as recently prescribed medications are dulling the sensations, aches, and pains. My recent history is below.
This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> meds...and I DON'T have high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, I've been running for 25 years! If anyone has a diagnosis please share...I know your frustration.
Such as, when I travel south to other states, or east to Toronto area, I feel better. The tightness and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is not as bad there. I can get away with just taking Claritin-D and not having to take flonase. When I am back home my symptoms are worst and taking all these meds don't completely relieve my symptoms. Does being surrounded by couple of lakes have anything to do with the way I feel? Also, I feel that when I take flonase my sinus discomfort gets worst, such as sinus pain.
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
I can't postulate a connection between your various conditions and I can't comment on your high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> without more information on the actual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> readings. If you are taking an inhaler called Albuterol (Proventil), it could cause your heart rate to be elevated. I suggest that you have a thorough evaluation by a good general internist to get to the bottom of your problems. I hope you find this information useful.

Since then, I've been fighting, off and on, a slightly soar throat, a chalky taste in the mouth, a dry feeling mouth and sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> in the forehead. However, that night I went to a football game and got soaked and was out in the cold. I have seasonal allergies which I just started taking flonase for about a week before. I've had the chalky taste and dry mouth in the past too.
My wife now wants to do HCG and I'm going to do it with her. HCG improved my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> sugar readings. I've reduced my dependence on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e for spring allergies. I've learned how to eat less and eat healthier. For me I'm glad I did it, although, its tough and a last resort for those that have "tried everything.
Moved to Chicago several years ago from Phoenix so the doctor suggested that I may be suffering from allergies as a result. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> test confirmed grass allergy. Have been using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flonas</span>e (SP?) for about 1 month coupled with nasal rinsing system but still have the ringing and drainage. Should I be worried about another culprit besides allergies causing these awful symptoms?? In addition, is there any other over-the-counter meds that may be of use. Thank you.
