I have been placed on blood pressure medication in February. I have not tolerated the first one. I was switched to another. The side effects of these things is ridiculous. They can actually cause a heart attack or stroke! So today at lunch I felt like a gas bubble was trying to blow past my diaphragm. This causes chest pain and then the mind starts running wild with everything I have read. So it's off to the emergency room. The EKG was extremely good, I think they said excellent. I am waiting on blood work and e - rays to be deciphered. I guess it is time for more fruit and vegetables and exercise. I see the homemade vegetable juice coming back into my diet on a regular basis.
