Thanks for the advice everyone! I gave the meditation a shot & it did help to relax me a bit. To answer some of your questions:
I have tapered down from 60 mg of prednisone to 25 mg.
I am on Diovan & Coreg from my previous fight with this & congestive heart failure, and I am now also on hydralazine & doxazosin to try to stabilize my bp.
My bp is very irregular - it goes very low for part of the day and then starts going back up. It can range anywhere from 89/56 to 170/99 in the course of one day.
I have been working with my nephrologist on this over the phone & I see him in a few weeks again, so I'm hoping he can help!
Thanks again for your advice & concern!
Lots of Love!
