Zuzu8
Dec 7, 2003
... Thanks so much ZuZu! funny about you saying when u got your friends to test them the closest I could get was asking my 7 year old to do it......she was worse than me!! made me smile to think its not just me!! Today I sort of pushed through the symptoms and eventually the off balance sensation lessened but I got a weird feeling in my legs like they were weak and almost like... (5 replies)
Zuzu8/question
Jun 25, 2003
... Zuzu8, You seem so knowledgable on blood pressure, I thought I would ask you this question since I can't get an answer out of my doctor. I have high cholestrol but blood pressure has never been an issue for me. In October my family and I were hit by a car and I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. They started me on Tropol XL but it didn't bring it down enough. ... (10 replies)

... When I was first diagnosed with hypertension, I was all freaked out about it, and it didn't help that in the course of one day, I might take fifteen different readings, and have them range from 120/65 to 190/115, there just didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for the ups and downs. I finally found a precription drug program that was effective in turning the "trend" down for... (10 replies)
... Unfortunately I don't because I currently don't have insurance. And as my Dr. has said, he'd like to see me get insurance because with having hypertension, I should have regular blood checks done. And without insurance, they are not cheap. So much so that I couldn't afford them without insurance, given my current inability to work and the fact that I was denied for state... (4 replies)
Newbie with HBP
Mar 5, 2012
... Yeah, I went from 222 on Thursday when I started taking it to 216 this morning.. Wait, that's six pounds. No feeling extreme fatigue, just a little woozy for a couple hours a day. Had a touch of a headache tonight and took a warm bath to try to relax. My BP was like 140/92 with an elevated heart rate when I got out and for the last hour or so since I've gotten out of...

... Ohhhh. Like if someone was just living there normal life and doing whatever and never new they had high blood pressure and all of a sudden one day they just past on... Well I started to take these meds everyday now. I would break up half of 12mg and take it once a day. Than yesterday started one whole pill. I feel like its works sometimes. (5 replies)
... Thanks zuzu8, for your caring reply. Oops, thats my mistake, I uploaded a few screenshots but forgot to paste the link.

... Wow, only 1 drug and you're back into the healthy zone - that's great to hear! I know that it doesn't necessarily mean I'll be as lucky, but it gives me hope to know that it can happen :) I've been unhappy about the meds situation for several weeks, because my doc gave me 5mg and 10mg Norvasc to try over 2 separate intervals, and the benefits are barely noticeable...

... I am taking a lousy 2.5 mgs of Betaxolol and I still have SOB as well. I was taking 2.5 mgs of Bystolic with same problem and thought maybe a different type of BB would help...at this point i'm just wondering if it;s a lack of conditioning, being out of shape, etc...who knows. (7 replies)
... Dear Zuzu8/Jamie007: Thanks to both for the information. I am thinking along those lines too. I went to Pulmonologist and he did Pulmonary Function Teat, and all numbers were fine for example FVC= 137% FEV1= 132% which were considered great and beyond the cut of limito of 90% I think. Only issue I had was with FEV1/FVC = % 70.90. HE said that FEV1/FVC should be greater... (7 replies)
... Thank you zuzu. #1- Sorry, but what do you mean by "are you taking a potassium-sparing duiretic?" #2- I've been told that potassium is better than sodium, and that some people take potassium tablets to lower BP. Is that true or false, to your knowledge? < edited > Just one of the articles I read. I don't know if they are true or not true. Guess everyone has... (19 replies)
... zuzu, I don't think you mean 8 ounces/day :) BTW, love your username. I named my first dog Zuzu. (19 replies)
... thank you; and you are correct in that I do "tweek" the medicines and supplements I take. I have another condition which I felt I should discuss elsewhere on the boards. It was diagnosed 6 years ago as CLL, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. I am now a trained First Connections volunteer for the Leukemia / Lymphoma Society specializing in CAM (Complimentary and Alternative... (3 replies)
