I have to go to the Doctor's

I got to see about my blood pressure. Even though I’m being treated for high blood pressure I’ve been getting increasingly higher and higher readings everywhere I go over the last couple months. I’m afraid I’m going to stroke out. I’m going to need to increase my blood pressure med or get a stronger one.

I wish I didn’t have to go but it needs to be addressed.

Best wishes. Better to do preventive care than hospice care.

I needed 2 meds to control mine when I was obese. Mine was in the 180 over 120 range

Wow that’s amazing. And are you still on anti hypertensives or are you off of them now?

@SkinnyMe I’m off both BP meds, and both my diabetes meds. Yay!

My blood pressure was 160 something.
The physician assistant told me to monitor my blood pressure for a couple of more days and if it’s still that high that I should contact my doctor.

I understand what you are going through @leafy
You are doing the right thing.

She changed my blood pressure med to a better med and told me to keep an eye on it.
