LarrysGirl Posted June 20, 2014 Report Share Posted June 20, 2014 Hi my friends, after all the excitement and posting pictures of my new place, I have some sort of health issue happening. The last few weeks I have had some sort of episodes where suddenly the blood goes from my head and I'm almost brought to my knees. Each time is not that severe but I can feel it coming, like my heart suddenly drops and then I have to sit down fast. I talked to my doctor and he sent out a heart halter monitor, I have it on and will wear 3 days (very annoying around my neck). Since Larry died my blood pressure stayed very high, we tried several meds. and I don't tolerate much. On a very mild one but it hasn't controlled the blood pressure. When I started having these spells, I went and I found my blood pressure monitor and to my surprise my blood pressure is down, not the best but down to around 140-145 over 80. Believe me thats alot lower, I was staying at 180/90 round the clock. I think that since the move I have to walk maggie (don't have a fenced in place yet) all the time, I have lost weight and the daily walks I think have helped to reduce it some. I don't know if its the blood pressure medicine dropping it too low, have no idea. Today is my second day with the monitor, one more to go and send it back for the results. My hours have been cut on my online job, bad timing financially. And my Maggie is having some issues too. She needs to go to the vet, licking her private parts after urinating, at least that is what I think she is doing. I'll probably be like Mary and be chasing her down trying to get a sample too but right this second leaning over would not be good for me, seems to make things worse in my head. Would love some positive thoughts sent my way, sad that this is happening now, was feeling like I was coming out of a very very dark time.
