I guess I should have said also the ER Doctor did not know what was going on.....he did say somthing in the blood test was abnormal.....but he summed it up as "possible" cluster and migraine headaches......
Can my body build a resistance towards these medicines? Maybe that is why they stop working?
"45 pounds overweight”. in my opinion the answer is in that fact.
Take it like that:
Today is a first day of the rest of your life!!! Start walking, exercising, look in to your diet. You might need a professional help with that, or time and even TIME:) ...and read read a lot about food and its effect on your body. Don’t starve, you don’t need to and you cant it is harmful. Get a plan and stick with it, I hope you don't drink or eat low fat products, also be sure never drink any diet drink .Stop drinking coffee if you still do. With the pounds going to go down, so will your blood pressure.
You have headache because your high blood pressure. I've been there. I needed to lose only about 15 pounds. With the right weight and bp medication I am OK, you will be too.
I know it is not easy, but no other way ! Best luck to you!
Yes, I understand that. Being in the Military for 20 years I work out everyday..... My thyroid was diag as being hypo but I have not yet seen the Endo.
I appreciate your opnion but I was wondering if our body's become immune to certain medicine.
might not be related to anything more than vision. I was told (and I may just be gullible) that the eye changes in your 40s. I know that I had some terrific headaches until I got glasses. Then again, maybe it is your bloodpressure meds. Maybe your dosage needs adjusting. If you were given your dosage at a trimmer body shape the 45 pounds could make a slight difference in dosage amounts. (I wish I could boldface the word COULD) By the way, when I asked my daughter's doctor if she could discontinue BP meds, he said NO. That the meds were why the BP was down and without them it would rise.
yes my vision has started to get worse. I was just looking at a brain MRI the military did and looks to have a few issues of water on the brain, PLV and shrinking brain........I cannot believe they did not say this was important.
I tried to find a place on here for a doctor to interpret my MRI findings/Impressions but that is what I make of it.
I see, so part of that 45 pounds is muscle,
I had headaches very often, if it was windy , if I was stressed out, if tried to drink less coffee...or just who knows why?...
I started on the beta blocker coreg took it for 6 months then switched to Metoprolol, lost around 15 pounds ,gave up on caffeine...since I have only very occasional headaches, and near not as sever as it was .
Yes I think our body can get immune. One point they wanted to give me an extra pill to Metoprolol-Altace because of my bp went up...I protested instead of taking more, I looked into some natural way: blood pressure lowering food, harder exercise, yoga breathing, meditation. It works, as an addition to my existing medication. My DR believes all that can lover high blood pressure about 20% at least, it sure did for me.
My vision still good, but reading glasses needed first around 47. It is an age thing...now 10 years later I need twice as strong.
It is the combination of many things that we are , how our health out of order, on can get back in track.
Good luck to you to find the way for a healthier yourself !
I'm just living with a litte high blood pressure. How high is too high and how much money do the doctors and big pharma companies want to make.......dunno but that drives me crazy. We have been eating more veggies, trying to leave much of the fruits alone to get away from the sugar......and just let things be. The side effects of the HBP meds I had were not good.......they did control my pressure for a few months if they didn't have many side effects but then it went back up........the wicked bp meds that gave me horrible side effects did keep the bp low but I had to like horribly. no dice with that for me.
