Hello all after having a diagnoses of BP a few years ago it had settled down enough and what with my daughter getting married and other things. I forgot to get repeat prescriptions.
This week i had to have a an eye test for probably new glasses, so the test began ans she suddenly said i will have to stop there you have some problem with vision and i will have to stop. she said she needed to refer me to hospital.
Told me to ring hospital in 3 days and wouldn't get a app for at least 3 weeks. But an hour later i had a phone call from the eye clinic saying as a mater of emergency i am to go to the clinic the next afternoon. after many tests i was told that I had Central Retinal Vein Occlusion most probably caused by the High Blood Pressure that was then checked [it was 254/119] i was so shocked i can tell you. i was then send to the AMU to be monitored then admitted to hospital.
I had more blood tests but will have to put that below
Send home with medication to take in the hope to get it down. BP just now was 191/110 and dont feel at all well. am having some more bloods taken on Wednesday for this other condition see below It as far as i know isn't BP related. so will have to have it checked again.
Any one else have it this high
Blood tests revealed i could have Temporal Areitritus is this BP related
