Over the last few months I have had these "incidents"
Sudden onset of weakness accross both arms and chest, arms being the worst. It's happened about 4 times, today was the worst. I thought I would pass out so I laid on the floor my arms out streched, it was about 3 full mjinutes befor it passed, but now 2-3 hrs later I still feel shaken. Last month, for the first time in my life I had a high blood pressure reading at my Dr's 157/102, I am 53 yo, female and yes have a stressful life. My Dr. put me on HCT at that time, but now these incidents have happened twice since going on medication. My question is this, Is what I'm decribing a symptom of High Blood pressure or should I look elseware?
