Xadago Day 6 wed afternoon – going off med

Dictated outside suuurgery while waiting for taxi. It doesnt cope with my Scottish accent. Apologies but cant face correcting it right now. See if you can make some sene of it!.

Woke up with the highest blood pressure ever 156/97 and it kept saying that so I thought the machine was broken.

I made my appointment yesterday for the doctor just to discuss this medication and when I asked the nurse to check it was still 152/92.

I have been across to McDonald’s and had lunch before has and my blood sugar was still good and my oxygen levels were good but I was extremely tired when I sat down in the waiting room and kept falling asleep because I came an hour early but just needed to feel I will somewhere safe with feeling so weird full stop and yes the builders were upstairs again this morning but you the bank so that would increase anything anxiety although I haven’t been conscious of feeling any anxiety. In French I am very little pain at the moment including my bursitis except when I move bit more than my joints like. Anyway the doctor has had a look at everything and suggested I stop these tablets for the few days to see how I go and maybe go back onto the blood pressure tablets very low dose that I was on until 3 weeks ago when my blood pressure had become very low. She did my bp and it had dropped too 122/70 while I was in the waiting room. It was only an hour since iit was 155/92.

So it was hard to know what to do for the best but since my symptoms are parkinsonian and can be somewhat attributed to medication on several occasions I will keep an open mind. When I run my neurosurgeons office yesterday the secretary rang me back and said he wasn’t very concerned and just to see my GP who would get in touch with him if necessary.

The main thing is that my movement has become much worse on this tablet and more stiff and slow and hard to move at toll so here I am sitting in the sunshine weather cool beans and while I have been in the way to room between save the sister and the doctor my blood and falling asleep in the waiting room the spike pit me all that way people worried about my blood pressure is now 122 go figure.

5am Thurs. Woke around 3am in pain and ice cold. Been very cold since starting these tablets.
