My blood pressure was 143/88. So they took it again ... 138/83
So after talking with the doctor about my eye I just asked "I'm a little concerned that my blood pressure is still so high..." She looks at me and says "well you might need to shed a few pounds and start exercising and eating better."
|SOAKED in sweat and flaming red face!!!|
She told me I need to not eat any sodium so I told her ... "I really don't." She said "uh, sodium is in lots of things like canned goods and pre-packaged meals." DUH!! I don't eat ANY of those!! I know she didn't believe me. She told me I could come back in after a couple of months of trying to change my diet and exercise and see if the blood pressure had improved. Um, If nothing has changed in the last 14 months is 2 months really going to be life changing???
Please someone tell me I'm not the only one who gets treated this way when they see a doctor ... Please?!?
