The short version, for those who don’t want a rerun, my blood pressure went nuts, I developed some strange stomach issues and I’ve been living large with general anxiety and panic attacks.
Shortest version: good times.
Today I started a new med for my blood pressure and, as it promised, enjoyed a great deal of light-headedness today. I also had my first normal blood pressure reading in over 2 and a half months. Score.
Then I read over the little page that came with the new meds. I’ve got to stop doing that.
Here’s part of what I read. “Don’t drink too much water” it said, “too much water can be just as bad as not enough water.” I wish I was kidding you.
Too much water? I had no idea you could, short of drowning, drink too much water! But it doesn’t even tell you how much is too much. A fourth glass? A fifth? Maybe I’ve already crossed the line and I’m in way over my head! This is not the kind of advice that someone dealing with anxiety attacks should be getting.
I wonder if chocolate milk is bad for me?
