Had to call the cardiologist again this morning...my BP was 89/65! First, it was waay too high, 198/126. Then it dropped...now we are fighting to keep it up! Now I am to take only the beta-blocker, not the lisinopril ER. Still very dizzy!... Read more

Friday, November 06, 2015      3 comments

I know it's trivial but we are going thru cleaning people like water. They either don't show, show up very late, or "call in sick." I know it is out of my control but I get so frustrated!... Read more

Brain fog lifting!
Wednesday, November 04, 2015      3 comments

The new meds, and discontinuing the other ones, has lifted the brain fog a bit and I'm starting to feel a little better! Not normal, since the beta blockers keep my heart rate low and I feel exhausted with any movement. But, we think we are on... Read more
Medications changed again!

Yet again, third time in a few weeks, the cardiologist changed my meds. He did say my heart is FINE, that the BP is causing all the problems. He hopes the med change will alleviate the dreadful feelings of vertigo and "out of body feelings", as... Read more
On Bystolic 3 days and now it has been discontinued due to brain fog and dizziness!
Monday, November 02, 2015      1 comments

My BP is still spiking, heart racing, and I can hardly walk. Talked to the cardiologist today and he stopped the Bystolic, "maybe" it was causing side effects. Only the Lord knows what's going on because we don't. Prayers appreciated!... Read more

We see them only today as they flew out two weeks ago to take my Mum to Myrtle Beach. It's been such a blessing to have them with her this week with me in and out of the hospital. We are not close, but we will try to kill them with kindness to... Read more

I have been on lisinopril for over 10 years, HTN runs in ALL the women in our family on Mum's side. We have always been avid hikers, walkers, and cyclists and exercise every day. For some reason the lisinopril is not holding the bp so today I ... Read more

The doctors are trying to figure out what is causing this really high BP and the syncope. It was pretty much ok, high normal, on the ship but from the day before we were to return home it skyrocketed again. My almost 90- y/o Mum insists I have ... Read more

We pull in tomorrow morning and should be home by bedtime. It's been a great cruise, yet, starting today my BP is really high again. It HAS to be stress as well as genetics, just knowing we will be home, how do I check my BP every 4 hours?, ca... Read more
