I have been suffering from high blood pressure that will spike at times for no apparent reason. It has gotten as high as 255/125. I have been told I have tchycardia. My symptoms when I have an episode are, trembling of the lips, spiked blood pressure, dizziness, chest pressure and pain, I also get hoarse. I go to the emergency room and all they do is let me lie there until my blood pressure stabelizes. I also have an abdominal arotic anuerysim. The anuerysm has grown in the last six months it has gone from 2.5 to 3.5. I have been to Santa Barbara Samsun Clinic, UCLA, and numerous doctors in my home town and no one can tell me what is causing my symtoms. My cardiologist has said there is nothing wrong with my heart and that I just have to live with the rest of it. I suffer from acid reflux. Sometimes I feel my blood pressure go up after I have eaten and I feel the pressure in my chest. I also suffer from a panic disorder since this all started.
What can be causing all these symtoms?

  • Are you exposed to any carbon monoxide or gas fumes? Smoking? Not sure what's causing it but check out this stuff (I just ordered some):http://www.hsu.com/testimonials.htm I think another clue in your statements is "after I've eaten..." So, let's look at what you are eating. Perhaps you need to go macrobiotic, vegan or organic. Be sure and check for msg in everything. It comes under a dozen different names. The anuerysim is a problem for me. I think I would have another specialist look at that. I think your blood pressure will be find after the ginseng and the cleanse program, but it is so high that you really need to make some life style changes and be spy like about what is causing it. You're on the edge.
