What’s the first thing the doctor does when you see him; he takes your blood pressure? If it’s high on a regular basis what does he do; he puts you on blood pressure medication? That’s exactly what happened to me in my early twenty’s, forty-three years ago, and I’ve been on blood pressure medication ever since. No one ever talked to me back then, on how to relieve the stress I was under, or how stress affects blood pressure; you just followed doctor’s orders.
Doctors Are Only Human
Don’t get me wrong, doctors are great and they save a lot of life’s, if it wasn’t for doctors the human race would not function properly, but doctors are only human, and at times do make mistakes. If I knew how to control stress and take care of the problems that already lingered in my system caused from earlier stress, I would not have to take blood pressure medication, and today my kidneys would be fine.
Experiment For Different Doctors
During my adult life, because of stress, my blood pressure was always high; I was put on various types of blood pressure medication. How many different types, I really don’t know; all I know is that I felt like an experiment for different doctors. They could never balance my blood pressure; it was always erratic.
Lost My Business
During the last thirteen years a lot of things happened to me; I lost my business, people in my family died, and I lost my wife. You would think my blood pressure would be off the charts because of this type of trauma in my life, but your wrong, it’s just the opposite; my blood pressure is back to normal and I’m slowly going off all medication!!!! YOU FIGURE IT OUT. I wish an experienced doctor in this field would read this paragraph and reply with an answer; the reasons are something I can only guess at.
Never Fully Under Control
Only recently, at the age of 63, did I find out I had Chronic Kidney problems caused by prolonged high blood pressure and various medications, no one knows which ones; during the last 40 years I’ve physically moved 15 times and experienced different doctors each time. My medication was changed many times during that period; my blood pressure was reduced at times but never fully under control.
Anyway, I’m not going to get into much detail at this time, but I now know for sure that stress affects blood pressure, which affected my kidneys.
I put this website together so we can help each other and share information. Comments would be greatly appreciated, the more we share our experiences, the quicker we can resolve issues and get closer to the truth; actual every day life experiences, I find, are better than theory.
Have a great day
