Tests Results – Brain Is Fine, But Blood Pressure Worse

Leave a comment

Had an MRI on brain and a carotid artery scan and the results are all fine. Whew! So no brain aneurisms or strokes coming anytime soon.

Now on to tests for my heart, after the blood pressure monitor, which I get in a few weeks.

At the doctors getting my blood pressure checked today, following stopping Endep medication and taking a different one.

Since I last went to my doctor a few weeks ago and today – my blood pressure difference between sitting and standing has worsened. So that’s not good. Doctor advised I halve the medication and get my BP checked again.

She also said there is no medication for orthostatic hypotension.

I know from research adrenal fatigue and issues can cause this, so I will ask if that can be checked too. And it makes perfect sense to me, that 46 years of toxic stress, major anxiety etc….. would result in adrenal fatigue and related issues.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
