Janelleas's Journal, 14 July 2011

No excuse, I have not been in control of diet lately and this is when I really need to be careful. Oddly enough I thought I was really eating quite sensibly, so I will have to take another look at what I am doing.

BLood pressure is still bad. I ended up in the emergency room all because I called my doctor's office at around 11pm last night and got a nurse that answered the phone after hours. I should not have listened to her when she told me to go to the ER. I spent 4 hrs there, yes my BP was extremely high but they sent me home with orders to get a heart "stress test" . They re-took an EKG which I had just had done at my doctors office about 2 months ago. I felt silly being there although my BP was dangerously high. It has been high for some time now and my doctor is working on it. The only reason I called was because my BP goes up higher at night when I am laying down, so I wanted to know if I could take another BP pill and get started taking them at night.. or could I take half a pill that evening and start taking the pills at night...all that led to a long stay in the ER. This morning my doc said, skip the pill tomorrow morning and take it around 6pm.. then keep taking it one hour later each night till I reach the 10pm that I want. I am under dr's orders not to walk, not to exercise but just eat healthy and wait for bp to come down where I can start walking again.

Not the greatest week so far, but I am still in a good mood about it all. I really am not worried.
Again, this week I will see how the not eating at night helps. Im keeping track of eating times and amount of calories eaten. trying to keep under 100 calories for one evening snack.

hope you are all doing better than me. Oh .. I forgot, they now think that my headaches (which are continuing) are not from the Blood Pressure, so we need to find out what is causing the continuing, daily headaches.

I am sorry to hear you have been having daily headaches. It can be hard to deal with and I hope they find the cause of them very soon. I also hope the blood pressure is regulated quickly so you have one less worry. {{{{{hugs}}}} Thank you for your kind comments on my journal. It meant so much to me.
