I went to the GP today cuz I just knew that my BP was high. He took it and said it was really GOOD! I was like shocked! All day long my head has felt like it was going to bust open, so I guess I've carried a tension headache around, rather than a high BP headache today. What I don't get is this: My BP is ALWAYS high when I check it at the store and was high after I had to deal with the shrink from he** the other day....go figure! Anyhow, the GP went ahead and upped my Lisinopril from 10mg to 20mg, which is still a low dose.
 Even right now I feel kind of woozy. I've been pretty sleep today also, which I had thought might've been related to my "high BP", but if my BP isn't high like the GP seems to believe, I guess it's just the tension getting the best of me! Sigh.
 I used to take my xanax everyday until late last year when I found out that the shrinks at my MH clinic were going to be very tight with prescribing them. Now it's almost like I'm afaraid to take them again! I should've taken one today I suppose, but didn't. The anxiety was worser earlier in the day. I had it when I woke up and it lingered for a while, but wasn't so intense that I couldn't function. It just made everything seem harder to do. I feel absolutely exhausted and have felt that way all day, even though I didn't do much really.
 I must sound totally weird with this post...I'm rambling, aren't I? I guess I just needed to tell someone about how my day's been...share some words with my kindred spirits. I can't say much to mom as she can't handle me being anxy very well. She just acts all aggravated and/or martyrish for having to put up with me. So I try not to say much to her about how intensely I feel sometimes. Thanks for letting me tell YOU. yeah

Janet,

I've been feeling kind of the same, as what you describe, lately: headachy, woozy, sleepy.  I've also been more anxious the past couple of weeks, which you have mentioned in your previous posts...could all of this be the anxiety and not high BP?  Just a thought.  I do hope that you will start to feel better, I know how miserable carrying all that tension around can be.  Take care!

Janet,
I noticed that when i take xanax WHICH I HATE with a passion i get severe headaches also every physc i talk to say that xanax is the worst possible benzo on the market and they will never prescribe them also the machines at the stores are not accurate at all i have perfect bloos pressure and them machines always say im high try doin the 3 time rule do it three times with about a 5 second pause in between and take the best to and that should be where your bp is at if its always off then u know the machine is out of wack
