Ok, so the last couple weeks I've been having serious BP issues. Stroke level, head pain, dizzy, eyes blurry, etc. Have had 2 doc appts, and medically they're trying to get it down with me, but it seriously makes me almost immobile when I'm home...it hurts to move. If you're a pray-er, pls pray!

Suze, only think I can think of is to ask: have you had issues with peripheral edema on that side? Have you had breast work, such  as mammectomy or lumpectomy? That can cause that issue. Or a previous stroke affecting one side...

Thank you! Did see a doc and he doubled my BP meds, and I'm supposed to "take it easy" LOL!!!

I have more edema on the low blood pressure side...I do have a 'Patent Foramen Ovale' (PFO) in my heart - that was what saved me when I had my PE 10 years ago ....

never had a stroke that I know of nor any breast work..

Hope doubling your BP meds works....and please...do 'take it easy'....

Edema can cause that too. Wow, a patent Foramen Ovale? That's so unusual! I'd be curious to know what all problems that caused throughout your life.

"take it easy" is hard! But w/the really high bp, it's very hard to do anything, cause your head rushes, and feels like it's swelling out of your body.

that sounds yucky!!! 

Dunno what all the PFO has caused...its supposedly on the small size, but it was large enough to have blood clots go skipping thru which saved me from a heart attack when I had the PE...and fortunately, they took the 'correct' turn when they reached the other side of my heart and went down my left arm instead of up into my head which would have been a stroke...
