the doctor again today and found out that my blood pressure medicine was not working. When I went yesterday (I went to an orthopaedic doctor to have my knee looked at yesterday; today I went to my primary care physician) they did not say that my blood pressure was high. My blood pressure was 158/115 and that my blood pressure monitor is a piece of junk (it told me that my blood pressure was normal). I also found out that I have a slight heart murmur. The doctor put me on stronger medication and told me the murmur was nothing to worry about but I am scared. I just needed to share.

Big hugs to you, Pat. I don't blame you for worrying about the murmur - maybe you could let the doctor know about your concern and ask for a referral to a specialist, just to put your mind at ease?

Take care!

Hi Pat!

Don't worry atleast you found out now and can do something about it...I am sure the new med. will help. If you need any advice or help with your new med let me know!! (I worked in cardiac areas for a few years...)


Hugs, Kimmy
