hi just want to ask help and opinions..

Year 2005 October, i suffered palpitations and been confined for two days in the hospitals. by BP then was 150/100, all of the laboratory test are normal except my cholesterol which is elevated.

Year 2006-2009, almost everyday i feel dizzy and light headed, ive been to a lot of doctors from cardiology, ent, optalmologist and have been to series of examinations, 2D echo, ecg, threadmill test, blood test, all is normal... my blood pressure that time range from 120/90, 130/80, 140/100, most of the time my bp is 130/90 but in the physcians office it fluactuates from 130/90 to 140/100...but then MY CARDIOLOGIST TOLD ME I AM NOT HYPERTENSIVE...
I am not convinced so i decided to consult another Cardiologist she ask me to repeat the exams 2D Echo, ecg, blood works and all of the result was normal again except my cholesterol which is a little bit high.. so she put me on simvastatin or cholesterol lowering pill. But I always feel DIZZY this years


I start a healthy lifestyle, i quit smoking, i start running and been to extreme mountain biking... i reqularly exercise and i dont suffer any chest pain when i exercise... but still i feel dizzy most of the times... My VNG test suggested by my ENT doctor revealed that i have right peripheral vestibular lost. But he gave me no pill.. By BP that time is stable at 130/90....

My exercise is tough during those years i bike 40 to 115 kms weekly.. i run 2kms almost everyday, i lift weights 2 twice a week.

Year 2010 i was diagnosed with anxiety problems

Year 2011 i consult again my cardiologist regarding my BP, and took again several exams. She diagnosed me as a hypertensive, my 2D echo was not normal indicating that theres a muslce build up in my left atrium she said because of hypertension.. but i am not convinced MAYBE it was cause by my chronic exercise.. any help? by the way she is my new cardiologist ....thanks

Hey there,
I am glad you have a new Cardiologist..........your BP readings you posted here were all above the current normal of 120/80 ( some Drs. prefer 110/70) I do not know why your previous cardiologist did not feel you had hypertension.
I would be prone to agreeing with your current cardiologist.  It is up to you to decide if you feel this new Dr. has your best interests in mind and if so then work with the Dr.
Anxiety can cause us to question so many things in our lives.

anyone here can explain about an athletes heart? i am a runner and a cyclist for 6 years. I train regularly because i know my bp is in a borderline. but i think due to genetics i suffer the same fate, hypertension... but still i train atleast 2 to 3 times a week.. My ecg and echo are normal from year 2006 to 2010 and my doctors doesnt limit me in any kind of sports..but now there something wrong my echo and ecg reveals that i have LVH.. is't really an athletes heart? because i my endurance at present is much better in the past years.. i am confused.. thanks,,
