Glad all is well. I'm on a beta blocker too for the same thing. High stress job had me up around 169/95 or so. These days after several years on a beta blocker and a no stress job I run on average around 128/80. Good luck and stay on top of your BP. It will kill you if you aren't careful.Thanks everyone,
Seem to be doing better, felt a little "funny" since sunday, so finally went to the regular doctor yesterday and as soon as he took my BP (230/148) he said that they were sending me to the hospital. I went to grab my leather jacket and he said "no no, we are calling an ambulance" at this point i got a little nervious. Ambulance was there fast and they brought me out of the Doc's office on the stretcher.
Emergancy room was packed, but when your brought in on the stretcher you get bumped to the front of the line. So i was put in a room and told to lay down and relax. "relaxing" was about the fathest thing from my mind. haha.
they ran an EKG, a Cat Scan, Chest Xray and a bunch of blood tests. All the test came back fine and they put me on an intravenous Beta Blocker. after a couple hours one nurse took my pressure again and got 224/140. the doctor started talking about admitting me..then another nurse took the BP machine and tested me again to be sure and came up with 140/80, much better. We waited another 1/2 hour and did it again and it was 125/75 even better. So i was sent home with a presc69ription and instructions to follow up with my family doctor. (appt. scheduled for friday)
tried to stay home today, but was bored so i went to work and got in late at 9:30 to a office full of concern and hugs(from the females).
thanks again for everyones well wishes and prayers.
thanks again for
Boy - I'd bet he would be a lot less stressed out if he didn't have to keep worrying about if you were going to pay off your bet, or welch on it :biglaugh:Glad you're feeling better. It's moments like these that make you realize what is important in life. At this point, I'm sure having a clean bike is not really important to you.
