|Left over creation from the Royal Wedding, yes I know he is a duke|
Vertigo for 2 days.
5 nights, no more than 3 hours sleep, due to dog pacing/panting/not sleeping/coming to side of bed for me to help him.
Bob is deaf hears nothing, I wake if a gnat sneezes, hear everything.
crushing headache off and on about 10 days
Varicose veins throbbing.
Water retention weight gain 3 lbs overnight. (possibly caused by comfort/stress
of pizza and the eating thereof.)
I had only exercised 2 days out of 7, due to long holiday week end and other things. I exercise a LOT, 5 days a week.
all night ear ache PLUS crushing headache...deside to visit primary
Thursday , 6:50 am, walk in to Primary Doc office, stating I have no appt. Doc was standing
there at the desk, said send her back now.
The only question he asked was why are you here, I answered ear ache. And 4 days ago I had vertigo for 2 days, gone now. He Looks in ears, they are clear.
takes BP it is 144/90 takes other arm 142/92,
squeezes jaw, squeezes neck and says the pain is TMJ, buy a sleeping device and use it.
I am sending a new prescription to take in addition to your current bp meds, another type of bp med .
NOTE: he never looked at my records, did not ask a single question and did not know about all the stress listed above, did not know I have lost a lot of weight and am very strict with diet and exercise. he based the decision on one time BP measurement.
I got out of my car at 6:50 and was back in car at 7 am, including visit and check out.
I am not quick on the uptake, and time to think. I pick up new med and
I look up new med, with scary side effects all of which my current has the same side effect,
one of which is dizziness. so now TWO pills that cause dizziness (remember the vertigo)
I google to find where I can get my BP checked and find Walgreens will do it. I have Bp taken, it is normal.
I go to Publix pharm which is where I buy my meds, speak at length of meds I am taking and to be taken. She agrees when I say I am NOT taking the new meds, I will use diet/exercise.
Today is ONE WEEK later, my BP has been perfect 4 times a day... without the meds. I go back on the 14th for him to check me out and will have to tell him I chose to ignore his advice. OH JOY
I am off today to my TOPS and will let you know if I lost any more weight.
