I went to the ER cause i felt some heaviness in my chest with the high BP.I didnt have any pain while the BP was high.This seems to happen once in a while.I get a sharp rise in my BP for no apparent reason and .My Urine and BUN and Creatinine are all normal.My chest X-ray was normal.They looked for blood clots ect...everything was normal.Actually all my labs went up and have improved since taking the Plaquinel(2 months).I went to my doctor yesterday and he's having me do a 24 hour urine collection for VMA and some other stuff.He said sometimes young people have these sharp rises in BP due to benign tumors on the Adrenal glands or kidneys.He doesnt think it is that but wants to rule it out.He also gave me HCTZ 12.5 mg in addition to the Cardizem CD and wants to see if this brings down the BP.
You said you were leaking protein.Did that show in your Urinalysis or did they do another test to look for the protein??
