I am sort of scared

I couldn't shake my sleep fatigue when I woke and just chalked it up to the meds I take before bed. But I soon realized that I had forgotten lasts nights dose. So I took this morning's. My head was still not right then I took my after breakfast doses. Still not too good and as today is Wednesday I had to monitor my blood pressure. Well pickle my goose it's high 160/107. I have tried my mindfulness meditation to bring it down. My head is really hurting. Going to meditate some more.

Deep breathing is all I have to offer by way of suggestion.

Really important that if your body doesn't calm down it would be really important to phone your Doctor's surgery and seek their advice.

High blood pressure and a hurting head is not good.

Plenty of water to drink too.

The deep breathing/meditation worked, I fell asleep. Across my forehead still feel anxious.

Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well Fatpanther. Like the others have send it might be worth a trip to the doctor or at least ring them and ask their advice as headache, high blood pressure and drowsiness are definitely not a good combination.

Have you checked your temperature at all?

Hope you feel better soon

I'll do tomorrow when I know I have calmed down. As getting through to my GP can be very stressful.

I feel better after my meditation led me to fall asleep. But it's going to be an early night.

Fp I'll add to the chorus suggesting you see the out of hours doctor this eve if the bp stays high and headache persists. I wouldn't suggest ignoring it. Have a pint of water to bring the bp down naturally if you can. And if that ain't working get calling the out of hours. That's my ten cents. Hope you feel better soon. Put your feet up with your water and breathe mindfully and you'll maybe come round. Xx

Hello there, oh I do hope you are okay lovely. I suffer with high BP on occasions and I understand the strange head pains that often are associated with them. Do see a doc if you're not better. Let us know how you are, thinking of you x🤗

Thank you everyone. My blood pressure is back to normal today. I also made an appointment with the nurse for a blood test to make sure the blood pressure meds are not having any negative effects. Also a Dr 's appointment.

So yippee going back to my violin practice. That's what I was doing yesterday when the first signs of high bp showed up. I thought I was improving (my poor neighbours). :-D
