As most of you know, I have had problems with headaches and my blood pressure for the past 2 weeks. My blood pressure shot up to stroke level and my doctor changed my meds and gave me 2 additional b/p meds to take. These meds made my b/p bottom out. I mean BOTTOM OUT. For 2 days it was 70/40 and my pulse was less that 40. I have gone to him everyday for the past week and I have told him everyday that I am having headaches and the imitrex doesn't help. I have not asked for anything for the headaches. He gives me something for my b/p to go down, then he gives me something to raise it. This can't be good on my body. After my renal scan this morning, my head was hurting so bad that I was throwing up and couldn't keep anything down. My husband called him and asked him if I could come and get a shot or if he could see me and prescribe something. He said "NO, not with her history." My hubby went nuts and told the doctor he was full of ****, he was changing all these meds, and wouldn't see me to give me something for the repercussions of the chaning of the meds. He told my hubby for me to just tough it out until we get the results of the scan Tuesday or Wednesday. That really ticked my hubby off, he said so when we get the results that is miracuouly going to make the headaches stop?
What makes me so mad is that I have done everything right. I told the doctors that I wouldn't ask for or take anything without my husband knowing or giving it to me himself. I have used the one doctor in the past 9 months, and only one pharmacy. Sometimes I wonder if it even pays to get clean? People like this a$$ won't let you forget your past no matter what you do.
I know I am an addict, but I have been nothing but responsible with my sobriety since January 08 and it makes me so mad when I am being totally honest with people and they still look down on me.
