I went to the doctors yesterday for a simple bug bite and when the doctor took my blood pressure he was a little baffled that my blood pressure was 160/60. I explained to him that over the past 2 weeks I have been having slight dizzy spells along with periodic vision changes that were a little irritating. He asked if I had shortness of breath which I normally do because I am a smoker. He made me go to the ER. I went and they took my BP again and it was at 148/110. They took blood and hooked me up to an EKG. EKG came back fine, blood work came back fine except for my potassium was a little low. Gave me fluids, took BP again and it was 140/90. Then released me. I am very concerned about this and am waiting on a call back from my doctor. I have never in my life had any problems with my BP. In fact sometimes it seems a little low.
I am still feeling bad, vision changes are continuing, slight headache that comes and goes, tired, slight dizziness with vision changes. Can anyone please shed some light on this for me? I was actually very surprised that the hospital did not do any other testing, no urine, no chest x-ray nothing.
