I have been having this headache for a week now .... panadol only gives temporary relieve. Last night I was kept awake by the headache .... this morning when I woke up ... I felt really funny ... headache, neck and shoulder pain.... decided to take my blood pressure and the reading was 190/140 mmHg... I never had any problems with my blood pressure and I have been having regular check ups...but this came as a shock to me and even right now I am still trying to accept it.
I drove to work praying that I wont stroke out along the way.... saw the doctor at the out patient department and was told that I will need to be started on medication after my blood investigations are ready which I will sending this coming morning for all the fasting blood test.
Came home tried to sleep ..... and continued to monitor my blood pressure which was in the range of systolic ( the upper part ) 140-150 and diastolic ( the lower part ) 90-110 mmHg..... it really freaked me out and I had asked my close friend, Haz to stand by to drive me to the hospital if the blood pressure keep climbing up.
Tomorrow I will go see the doctor again and I think I will need to be started medication to control the blood pressure and to do a thorough workup.
This really is a wake up call for me coz I have been procrastinating about joining a gym and taking care of my health. And it also makes me think if I should continue with my masters program if it will create more stress for me ..... so many things suddenly become NOT so important anymore as I had been taking my health for granted. I am praying that God will guide me and show me the right path and the right decision to make ..... do keep me in prayer....
