I suffer from extreme blood pressure problems, how can I get my BP down?

I suffer from extreme blood pressure problems. I now have 198 over 72 but cannot get it down. I went to an ER and there they gave me a Nitroglycerin patch which helped reduce it to 180. Doctor prescribed Coversyl 5 – 2.5 but it doesn’t seem to work. I have had heart surgery with valve.

I am having tightness, cramps, dull and achy throbbing pain in my legs?

I am having tightness, cramps, dull and achy throbbing pain in my legs when I am standing or walking. The more that I am standing, the more the tightness in my legs gets worse. When I am walking, I become dizzy and unsteady and the tightness in my legs gets worse. The tightness, cramps, dull and achy throbbing pain starts from above my knees and goes down to the lower part of my legs. What tests can be done to determine this problem? What doctor or specialist should I see regarding this problem?

Does this look like a bat bite?

Does this look like a bat bite? Husband and I were outside around 11pm in Indianapolis in a hotel parking lot. Husband was lifting heavy items, like an unboxed microwave, boxes, and an ironing board into another car. Husband was wearing a hoodie, jeans, and shoes. I saw bats flying around a distance away, nowhere near us. When we got inside, I found this mark on his hand. Husband says he neither saw a bat near him nor felt a bat touch his hand. I want to know if he would feel it and if this looks like a bite. It is one mark, not two puncture holes. Could it be a scrape from lifting things instead?

I am planning for an hGH treatment with the goal to repair the various healthy tissue, and build up the appearance of the skin?

Dear Doctors,

I am planning to do a Full Health Checkup including detailed Cancer Screening.

Reason: I am planning for an hGH treatment with the goal to repair the various healthy tissue, and build up the appearance of the skin. In short, an anti-ageing treatment.

Therefore, I need to be checked for any potential side effects, like the risk of heart disease/diabetes or the growth of cancerous tumours. The goal of my test is this full test and diagnostics.

My question to you, is what should I be looking out for and what kind of diagnosis?

I am 49 years man from Scandinavia, and I have had a stressful work for over 20 years now. I often have diarrhoea — perhaps I did eat something when I lived Latin America several years ago.

I have always felt for something in my belly. To have a light pain, but a feeling like there is something there, close to the location of the left ductus deferens. I also need to check my skin for any potential danger, like skin cancer. It’s in my family.

I have one boy, born in 2000. However, not been able to have another child after that, and we have tried everything.

I also like to test for a potential pituitary gland tumours. But, I like to look into deeper testings like clinical microbiome test for bacteria analysis on gut conditions (test for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and diabetes).

I would very much appreciate your insides, views and feedback on what I should do. Thank you!
