I really think, despite the blood tests saying my kidney function is fine, that my kidneys are affected somehow. I mean why would my bp shoot up higher than it has ever been (besides when I was pregnant 11 years ago) and despite everything the doctors are doing it is not going down. It has almost been 4 weeks. The way it is going it will be a month soon with no relief in sight. I am desperate for an answer to this misery. I just want to live my life. I have to stay in my house, in bed most of the time because my bp will shoot up if I do the slightest things. I am scared to death of a heart attack. My dad felt like he was having acid indigestion all day and kept drinking pepto bismol from morning till about 11:00 pm when he decided to take a shower. He had a massive heart attack in the shower and they could not get him back. He was only 49, I am 44. That was 18 years ago and to this day I do not take a shower, I only take baths. So you see I am scared to death of heart attacks and strokes.
I am also starting to have trouble swallowing which I think is totally weird because I have found nothing on trouble swallowing. If anyone can help please help me. I am so desperate for answers, as you can probably see by how many times I post. Thank you.
