Hi, Everyone! I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum.
I was diagnosed on Wednesday as having High Blood Pressure and being "hypertensive". I went to the ER for a 4 day excruciating headache and the DR told me it was the high blood pressure that was causing it. I am really scared and am trying to get all the advice and tips that I can. I hope to get some good ones here. I have been on this site for a couple days now and really enjoy it.
Thank you so much!
P.S I'm not sure if age matters but I wanted to mention that I'm 40.

I've been taking fish oil capsules recently just to control my erratic BP and so far, so good. I'm a mother of two now and because I am off work, I get to read about
I hope you find a therapy that works for your BP. Control it because it adds a lot of pressure to the body and to the heart.
