Jeff I agree to a point. If my bp is always high when I am running around and doing things then to me it is doing damage to me somewhere. When I sit down and it goes down then they go by that but to me it is crazy because rarely am I sitting down for extended periods. That is another post I have floating around here though.
today I have a bad headache so my bp is high, when i'm sick it is high, etc etc, etc...
I dont want it high when I am tired or sick or running around, I want it at least semi normal instead of this 159/101 that i've had at times.
My Dr. did give me Verapamil and I specifically asked him for pill form and not capsules and what he give me? capsules! now I have to wait for the nurse there to talk to him and ask him to change it to pills...if he wont I will go to my other Dr. who does anything because she cares like that.
I want pills so I can cut them small to start with because I have a major big pill phobia and I will not take a 120 mg capsule of Verapamil or anything until I am familiar with the smaller dose and feel comfortable taking it...I know i am crazy, lolol but it works for me!
