Low Blood Pressure

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I haven't been on line much because I've been busy with doctor appointments.
For the past year I've been having serious weak spells and had attributed it to what I thought was Hypoglycemia. The doctors now say that I've been wrong. It appears to be Low Blood Pressure and I have to be extremely careful about too much exercise. I can be just walking across the room and feel like I''m about to hit the floor. I am frustrated because they also think one of my medicines may have aggravated this problem and it is one that has been treating my Anxiety. It has been doing a very good job unless I take half a dose for 2 or 3 days. I am praying that the new medicine will be as helpful without the side effects of lowering my blood pressure.

The heart doctor said No Caffeine & No Alcohol while taking in more Water and more Salt. So, I need God to keep me from being a balloon

    Hi sweetie,
    Oh I am so sorry to hear about your feeling so weak. Be very careful, with your medication and doctors. Make sure you are informed about your doctor and your medication. Always take someone that you can trust with you and have them take notes about your medication and the doctors instructions. To make sure that there is no confusion. Do not be afraid to make a list of questions to take with you to the doctors office.

    And don't worry about exercise right now, you don't want to take any chances of injuring yourself. Please talk to your doctor about any exercise right now and follow his advice. Your safety and health is my first concern and priority. I will keep you in my prayers, beautiful sister.

    I love you and always want you to be safe and healthy. God Bless you and your family!!
    Love your sister in Christ

    Magnesium foods will keep down the anxiety. also put vegetables into everything, and that's how you stay slim at Weight Watchers. I had a friend, and his med's were making him sick too. have a nice Easter. eva

    Good luck with the new medicine, hope it helps! My blood pressure gets low sometimes and I have to be careful getting up from a sitting or laying position. The Dr.'s were never concerned about it, they only care about high blood pressure.
    Have a Blessed Easter weekend!

    You can not always self diagnose. That's why dr's have spent years and lots of money to become drs. Next time you have an ailment, don't wait a year. Get checked out.

    After many years of high blood pressure, I had some bouts of low BP last summer so i sympathize. those weak and dizzy spells are no fun. Hope you're feeling better soon.
