Default good night and I hope my health improves

So today my blood pressure was 170 over 104....very scary. I was shopping with the girls and felt like I was about to faint.This isn't the first time and it scared the booties out of me. So keep me in your prayers and I am as of today changing my diet again.....since my blood pressure was normal on Atkins...

Everyone have a safe night.........

Take care of yourself and rest.

Are you on medication for that?

Sorry to hear you not feeling well. It is very hot right now, would that be a problem for you? Hope you feel better tomorrow.

Take it easy Sue, and maybe get some medication for that problem. I take heart medication every day or I get crazy fibrilations and feel faint and hyperventilate. Get some rest, and see a doctor ok?

sue - my best advice is to get in to the see your doctor as soon as possible. High blood pressure is not just diet related, there are a lot of other factors involved......there is a reason it is known as "the silent killer." Please have it checked!

Sue: I hope you feel better soon. I'm sure that must be a pretty scarey thing.

Hi Sue:
I'd like to add my concern to that expressed by others here. Please see a doctor about your blood pressure! I came THAT close to losing my husband over a similar situation. Blood pressure is nothing to be taken lightly. See a doctor and get the necessary meds if required. In the meantime, I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hope you feel better, Sue. Mark has high blood pressure, too, and has to take medication every day. It's tough for us since he doesn't have health insurance, but we have a great doctor who gives us lots of samples, and he feels 100% better on the medication. Maybe seeing a doctor would help you.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Thnak you all for the great thoughts! I used to take meds years ago. My father has the same problem. I will go to a doctor and see what he recommends. Thank God we have insurance at a very high price I pay almost $500 a month just for myself. Renewal just came up and I told my husband there is no way I am looking for another one <we have blue cross> I will get a doctors name today and make an appointment. Thank you!
