good news is the eye problem was an easy fix, a warm wash cloth held on the eye twice a day untill swelling goes down...now the bad news, they take your weight, bp, and pulse before the doc sees you and after taking my bp the nurse says excited to be here?? My bp is 142/94 my pulse is 64 bpm, the doc said before he starts meds is drop 5-10 pounds and monitor my bp. he set my goal at 125/80. Does anyone here take meds for hypertension? What was your lifestyle changes and was it hard to make those changes to better and prolong your health?
