[quote:Anonymous Coward 76140145:MV80MTU4MDY0Xzc1NTUzMzcyXzk5MDBBMkVC] I live in wisconsin also - A year and half ago, I was feeling light-headed, so much that I was afraid to drive - felt like I might pass out. My BP was running up to 200/125 - I couldn't believe it. ER gave me a liter of IV hydration and electrolytes and ativan IV and my BP wouldn't come down. Dr. put me on losartan/HCTz and it lowered my BP to 120/80 - only side effect I get is lower back pain sometimes. I've had every test you can imagine - from echocardiogram, kidney ultrasound, cortisol testing - all blood work coming back normal. My mother, who had none of the vices I have (smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol) had always been on a BP med. Sometimes genetics is all it takes. I know if I had the time to swim 3 times a week for an hour - like I used to have - I could lower it myself, but I guess I'll have to wait til I retire - I'm 56. Whatever you do - do not let them put you on statin drugs for cholesterol!!!!!! [/quote]
