Hi I am new to this forum and have some questions and concerns that maybe someone can help me with.
I have treatment resistant depression and narcolepsy. Both of these ailments have been part of my life for over 20 years. Lately, the past 2-3 months I have experienced symptoms that have gone unspecified. Tests have been done repeatedly to find causes or reasons for what is going on. Some of the things are passing out with little or no warning(this has seemed to stop over the past month), vision changes(sometimes loss of peripheral vision).
The most severe symptoms that actually has me concerned is my blood pressure. Over the past couple months it has been right around 150-180 over 100-104. Although the past couple days it has been 162/110. This has been confirmed by different blood pressure devices. Being in the medical field I know that this is extremely serious but I guess I just dont think about it because I have no physical symptoms related to my bp.
The only thing is that I dont know if this could cause me to have an infarction. My ekgs have been normal. I guess I am just frustrated because "clinically" I am fine with all this going on! It almost looks like I am making everything up with the exception of my bp showing that I am not. I actually told someone that I am dying of a broken heart.
