Hi Marji, I think you better just take it easy and talk to your doctor. Like in the morning. I have been off of steroids since March. But I was in the hospital for a month while I was getting off of them. During that time they had a very hard time getting my blood pressure straightened around. It was consistantly 200/ 110 or something in that area. They had me on 3 different meds for my heart plus switched them around. I'm not saying that the steroids is what was doing it as I was really sick already. I have to be off of them to get on the transplant list but sometimes I get very upset not having them. I get more tired. My inflamation is worse. I'm sure that after being on them for so long my body is better off without them as far as the thinning bones and losing hair. They switched my meds to build up my bones but of course my antibiodies are going to start attacking me again. So they have me on strict ordered to get to the hospital at the first sign of a problem and they will give me a steroid burst. anyway that is how they are handleing me just the burst if I need it and no more.
Anyway I would suggest you stay away from the broom. I don't care if it is holloween. You are sick and you are going through this detox you don't need to be pushing yourself. Call your doctor. If you don't have a PB cuff go to a store and use theirs or stop by a fire department they will be happy to check you out. Like you said you already have heart problems you don't need anymore. .
Let us know what the dr. has to say. Personally I'd go for the firemen
