    Sir is that your name? (rhetorical question). If it is your name, I kindly ask that you change it or delete your account and create another one.  

     

    Thank you very much for your question. Legal disclaimer:  we do not have a doctor- relationship and I cannot give specific instructions of care to you, but I can give you my best effort to find high quality information that you can consider. If I am wrong, or you don't like what I say, feel free to leave a message and let me know how I can improve the quality of service.

    If you are having chest pain, shortness of breath, or think you are having a heart attack you should consider calling l an ambulance. Blood pressure may vary during a heart attack.  If you think you are haivng a heart attack, you should probably call 911. I cannot make that decision for you. The blood pressure may be variable during a heart attack. 

     

    Again, and so we are clear:

     

    THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE, I CANNOT TELL YOU WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR MEDICAL CARE.

    I apologize for "yelling," with text, I am simply trying to be clear. 

     

    Kind regards,
