Re: 242/127...close call
As I sit here this afternoon, I realize that even with 9 years of stroke free years behind me, that it only takes a little change in my medication to send my blood pressure right to where it wants to be, and that is over 200/100 it seems. To this day, I have to be aware of my blood pressure every single day, and have to keep my medication regimen perfect. This latest hypertensive crisis was due to a small change in my medication made by my cardiologist, not my nephrologist, who has always managed my medication. The one time I alter my own rule, this is what happens. Boy have I learned something by this experience. I hope sharing this helps someone else avoid a similar mistake be made in their medication.
