I agree with the above. High bp coinciding with something affecting your sleep, sounds like you are describing some kind of stress or panic waking you? does not sound good at all. If you have no insurance, the ER might be a place to go as they usually have some kind of funding. And if your blood pressure is really high, they can probably help you get it down. I could say something like "give it to God" about your hearing, but it is so hard to do. Do you find yourself gasping or heart racing when you wake up at night? If so, I would mention this. The high bp is definitely something to get to the doc right away about. And remember the usual things like avoiding caffeine, tv, and other stressful things before bed. I will pray your trial goes well and that you are okay and get the medical help you need. I know this is a horrible time, waiting for disability. Hopefully it will be over soon.
