Selena Gomez’s Serious Health Issues Explained By Top Doctor!

Mon, June 13, 2011 10:55am EDT by 13 Comments

Poor Selena was rushed to the hospital Thursday and reports of her distressing symptoms include headaches, nausea and blood pressure issues. What could be wrong?

While it’s extremely hard for any doctor but Selena‘s to make a diagnosis, Hollywoodlife.com spoke to top NYC neurologist, Dr. Dexter Sun, at NY Presbyterian Hospital/ Cornell Weill Medical College, about what could possibly be wrong with the 18-year-old.

Based on the reported symptoms, there are three possibilities, says Dr. Sun. “If Selena is suffering from high blood pressure, it could be triggered by persistent stress, but that is unusual but not unheard of in an 18-year-old,” he explains.

Secondly, high blood pressure can be the result of some kind of renal (kidney) problem. There could be an infection or one of many different types of kidney disease, he says.

Third — and this is extremely rare — there could be a tumor in the adrenal gland, he adds.

In any case — “increased blood pressure can cause nausea and headache,” says Dr. Sun. “If it’s really high, doctors will need to reduce it with medication. She needs to be monitored. It would be dangerous to let her participate in activities” like concerts and television appearances. And if the high blood pressure is caused by stress, it won’t be reduced in just a day or two. Changes in her lifestyle will take time to have an effect on her health.

As to why Selena may have spent the entire weekend in the hospital and may be there still, Dr. Sun says that’s exactly what would be the required protocol.

Her doctors would definitely want to keep her in the hospital to observe her and do very detailed blood tests, to determine what is causing the blood pressure issue,” Dr. Sun explained.

As for whether food poisoning could be the cause of Selena’s troubles! Dr. Sun says that food poisoning can both increase or decrease blood pressure.

In any case — everyone at Hollywoodlife.com wishes Selena well and hopefully she’s already on the mend!

That was really uncall for you racist pig! I don’t know what race you are but I’m sure you bring shame to your race. It’s very easy to insult someone when no one knows who you are and hiding from behind your computer. You apparently don’t have the balls to say it to her face. Really what has she done to deserve your stupid racist remark. You think you’re better that her. Do you have the balls to tell us who you are? I seriously doubt a racist coward like you would ever do that.This country continues to go to pot because of idiots like you. Not only are you insulting her but her whole race. I can tell you you’ll never be the person she is. Low lives like you don’t deserve to be called Americans.

Honestly, I love the fact that you guys are Justin Bieber fans. But when it comes to Justin and Selena being happy together, you guys are just haters of Selena.. which means you guys are haters of Justin.
Real Beliebers(Including me) LOVE Justin and Selena! They’re CUTE TOGETHER.

Well. I think she’s an alright actress or whatever I mean her show was okay and her movies are just average. Nothing super special.
And in my opinion she can’t sing, unless her voice has been modified through the studio then in music videos she sounds awesome. But I hate her new song BangBangBang. Gets on my nerves. And when she sings live its…like she’s tone deaf. I went to one of her concerts thank you very much so I can say that. Or you can just watch a youtube video of her singing live.
But anyway, hope she gets better soon.

Okay, well, I honestly LOVE her music, but HATE HER. She is too old for him. She made a song called ‘Bang Bang Bang’ if you haven’t heard it, then look up the lyrics on youtube… It’s pretty nasty considering… Groosssssss, I seriously think no one should be sick like this, but I’m kinda happy :)
