I swam tonight…

21 Jul

I am trying, and it seems like in vain, to get control of this blood pressure and heart issue.

I got home last night and I was in Hypertensive Crisis (which means it shot really high). Then it bottomed out last night (to the point where it’s very, very dangerous) in the middle of the night. It’s like a roller coaster horror ride that I can not get off. It can swing so wildly in such a short period of time.

I just don’t understand it. I’m not overweight. I have a very healthy diet. I don’t have COVID. I weigh 110 lbs. and at 51, I don’t think I’m that old. I have been a life long athlete. And yet my body can not regular my heart beat and blood pressure. I don’t understand it. I hope by the end of all the tests in August that we might have some idea so we can fix it.

In the meantime, it’s scary. I never used to be afraid to be home alone and go to sleep. Now I hate it. My doctor keeps telling me, “Don’t stress about it or anything else. I don’t want you to worry. We’ll find an answer.”

I’m trying. I really am.

The pool really did feel good. Water has always been very soothing for me and the exercise is good. I went for a long walk last night but I much prefer the pool.

This is the third time we’ve changed medications. This combination is actually failing way more than the others.
