  • Not sure where

    I am not really sure where to post this. I went into my PCP doctors today for a follow up to a few new symptoms. I have was feeling really bad and I wasn't sure why. I was really shaky, dizzy, sweaty, cold and clamy. When I went into the office they took my weight which had dropped 25 pounds in two weeks, and then my blood pressure was sky high. (172/117). He isn't sure what is causing that but said that he legally had to put me on some blood pressure medicine. He checked my thyroid, urine in hopes that they will find something. So I have started that today.
    It really just feels like one more thing really, I am not sure how many more things I can handle.
    The stress at my house still more than I can take most days, but I am trying to make good decisions. I have a couple of appointments on Thursday so that will hopefully help me out alot.
    Has anyone else had these issues along with their IC? Any info would be helpful.

    Sounds like it could be Hyperthyroid Disease. If so, there is medidcation you can take to help it. Otherwise, I have no idea what that could be other than maybe an anxiety attack. My BP goes way up when I have anxiety.

        If you're under a great deal of stress, that could be at least a part of the problem. Are you eating and drinking water? Taking any herbal meds or supplements?

        I hope they will find answers soon so you feel better.

        Stay safe
