| | I have a few questions
To start off I have tourette's syndrome but pretty much controlled with only eye tics and such small stuff. I do have anxiety disorder but more OCD than anxiety but mostly controlled as well. I was on many drugs before for TS and finally found one drug that did better than all of them combined. When I was on the other drugs I was around 290 pounds. I'm 6 feet tall. Since I went of those I've lost over the last year now most of the pounds and I'm currently at 187 pounds as of my last visit. I also had very high blood pressure back then as well as high colesstrial. My colesstrial has gone down and is much much improved in a year without lipitor type meds which is good. But one thing my doctor and myself for that matter can't figure out is why my blood pressure is still high. My blood pressure before was around 190+/90+. Well now its been around 145/95+ and I've gone to less snacks and healthier foods and my cholesstrial has droped quite a bit in those three months but my blood pressure is still the same. Oh and about 6 months before this my doctor though it might had been the white coat thing and he suggested getting a watch that took blood pressure and pulse readings ever so often and I found one that could hook up via USB and allow me to print it out. Well I did this for the last 6 months and my blood pressure was still the same but for some reason was higher when I was sleeping. This doesn't make sense and my doctor agrees too. When I was sleeping my blood pressure was 200+/100+. He has sent me to get EKG, EEG and a heart xray and a stress test and all seem normal.
I don't think I have to worry to much but it seems my doctor has been more worried than I have been so I'm thinking a little harder. What do you all think. Tis most likely anxiety. I have gotten a few pains in my chess that feel like its my ribs on my left side but my hits in HS football hurt worse than this so I'm not worried about this. I did brake a rib during a football game and lets just say theirs nothing to comprare.
