I've had to come and stay with my daughter again. Reason: spells of extreme dizziness, panic attacks, super high blood pressure, blood sugar too high, and spells of unexplained high heart rate when at rest. 😟. I believe I have pinpointed the reason for the dizziness, etc. too much stress , overload for sure , meaning my usual dose of blood pressure medication runs out in my body too soon. Creating the beginning of another spell. Will probably call my doctor Monday and see if I can increase my dosage. It used to be increased until I joined SP and lost weight, exercised regularly, and ate well. That is when he decreased the blood pressure medicine. My blood sugar and blood pressure was staying at a healthy low!!! Now all are high, presumably from the stress load I've been under for some time now. A year ago I was at my highest self image level. Was loving my progress. Hope to get there again if I can.

    HUGE hugs and love to you... prayers as well. I hope that your doctor has a good solution on Monday and that your stress level can come down. You take on so much for everyone else - I hope you can find time to take care of YOU. emoticon

    Take care of you...Stress Kills...do not let it do so in your case!!!
    Meds are great...but find the source of your stress and deal with it!
    I know that sounds cut and dried..but I seriously understand and also
    seriously know how difficult it is to deal with some stressful issues...fact is..

    do what you can about what you can....
    turn anything else loose!
    YOU only live once...so grab life by the horns and live it as fully as possible!

    Sending good thoughts to the universe in your behalf!!

    Definitely call the doctor do not let this go for any length of time I had the similar problems and after large weight loss and stabilization more adjustments needed to be made so don't ignore this hoping it will go away - you are definitely in my prayers.
