: Hi I was just checking to see if anyone had a used blood pressure cuff they didn't need anymore. I had one reading at a doctor's office about 5 years ago that was elevated, but he assumed it was due to "traffic" on the way there & dismissed it. I was also having symptoms of racing heart before going to bed at night. I was going through a divorce at the time also. Anyway, now I'm having similar symptoms and can often feel the force of blood pumping at my carotid artery. Many nights I can't sleep at all from the racing heartbeat. I get occasional dizziness but not much. I've started taking potassium and garlic supplements. I'm in a pretty bad financial situation right now so was hoping someone might have a blood pressure cuff or know where I can get one used. Thanks so much! Please write to Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rather than that, why not see an endocrinologist to see if you are hyperthyroid?
