Need quick answers about high blood pressure/heart problems

Okay, my hubby (only 24) has very high blood pressure problems. He is on a high dosage of Avapro, which keeps it regulated well & he is usually fine. He's at work right now & just texted me to say that he is feeling short of breath & having pain in the middle of his chest & back. Does this sound like heart problems? I'm so young that I have NO experience with this. I called to check on him & he sounded okay... He said he was alright for now & he would call me back in a little while. Should I make him leave work & go to the ER? I'm so worried now...

  • yes this is a sign of a heart attack. If he is overweight I would seriously suggest going on a diet. I have high blood pressure too and am dieting. I think that he should talk to his doctor to adjust his medication.
