The Nightmare of the blood pressure
I actually go see cardiology on Thursday, so hopefully they will figure something out. In the mean time, I am not taking the diuretic that I have been on. Yah, so ask me if I am even thinking about posting my weight? Actually depending on when I take a lasix will decide on if I will do that. I am to the point I have started taking half at bed time and half in the morning, just so I am not so swollen. It is not a good thing when I actually weigh less in the evening than I did when I wake up in the morning… after eating all day!
There is obviously a reason I am retaining fluids… and it time for someone to figure this out. According to all the other doctors, there is nothing wrong with my heart… so why do I retain fluid then? The general reason for someone to retain fluid is because they are in congestive heart failure (which is a weird name, cuz it is actually fluid on the lungs…) or a disorder causing swelling in the limbs… but as far as I know, I don’t have any of that. Hopefully I will get some answers.
On Monday (next week) I go and see rheumatology, and hopefully I will get the rest of the answers. K has an appointment at the same time… tomorrow I have therapy… I haven’t seen my therapist since all this happened with K and stuff, so that should be good… and then I have a filling in the afternoon… should be a fun time before I get to go out for dinner tomorrow night. I do plan to go to kickboxing though… get out some of my ”frustration” and I am not even referring to any of this stuff
Oh, and I got a bunch of fun stuff for the side bar… although the sad thing is seeing the recent visitor box sitting there empty!!! but you can now click the link and have my updates sent to your reader or I think you can set it up to get an email when I update!!
