A Few Upcoming Floats
LOL entirely different from mine
sticks the known problems ( but now skips the blood tests , they just confuse everybody )
i have failed one of every check now even a passive MRI ( and that stunned the hospital )
i think the medical team ( GP , two cardiologists ,and their professor and a hematologist ) have discover enough puzzles already ( and they have only found my medical records from July 2016 until now ... there are many other surprises in the ancient history
that's not high ( for me ) it used to be 180/140 at 120+ bpm for decades
but i hope you get timely treatment ( and recover quickly )
watch out if they prescribe Bicor it hits me like 2 bottles of scotch a day ( makes operating machinery , including a shopping trolley a lot of fun , and yes i am a happy but scary drunk )
one thing i learned about heart problems , , many years ago ' whatever you do DON'T PANIC ' it distracts the medicos and paramedics
chin up bullseye9 if you live in QLD the specialists have learned a lot from me ( and i haven't been in an ambulance since 1970 )
Mine was up to 203/74 when I first went to my present doctor. She saw me weekly until she found a pill that would work. Three years later and I'm still maintaining around 140/60.
She charges above the scheduled Medicare fee, but she's worth every cent.
Hope you get some joy out of your doctor Bullseye.
DEEP BREATH ( just don't hold it )
high blood pressure CAN affect the eyes i could always tell when mine went over 180 as my vision changed i told my mum about that about 8 years before she died ( of heart failure )
see what medication you are given check the side-effects ( they are all dangerous , but so is a heart attack )
the theory is the blood pressure affects the eye's inner workings ( so low blood pressure does it also , because you haven't adjusted to the new pressures )
heart first , check out the medications , go apply for sickness benefit they MIGHT stop from operating machinery ( like a car ) so apply early ( and get the discount on the meds ) .. save money in case you can't work for a while
