so did i, a partial black out. While in FL Thinking it to be a stroke. went to E R
All tests were negative except BP 160/100. Since then am under the care of Internist, Cardio, Neuro, E N T and all tests including adrenal gland negative.
Cardio said everybodies BP goes up when in E R from stress. But mine didn't go down.
Have had more tests trying to find cause
Will have MRA of kidneys next week. and see another neuro. Hopefully can talk her into a MRA or angiogram of skull
Just recently had another partial syncopy (fainting) spell. B P was 177/80.
Pain in my neck is arthritus.
So far most likely cause is from cervical spondylosis causing positional vertebrobasiliar insufficiency . In simple terms the disks in my neck are slightly crushed from arthritis restricting the flow of blood to the cerribellum
an MRA will show this. No cure
suggest you get under care of a neuro and get some picturesView Thread
you all sound like me. Healthy as a horse until i went to Fl this winter.
Started to have dizzy, weak knee, pressure in the head feelings much like a bad sinus infection daily after having some dental work done on the way down requiring novacane, not sure any connection.
Since saw an E N T sinuses clear
These all culminated in one night having partial blackout with black and red colors across my eyes. Thought i was having a stroke. Went to E r, all findings negative including C T. B P in ER was 160/100. Ruled out T I A
Got under care of internist, bought a B P meter. At one point had me on 40 mgs Lisinopril, a beta blocker and a CA blocker, plus the Cardura i take for B P H..
B P would still spike up to 170/80 and he's throw another pill at it.
Got tired of him treating the symptom and not the cause. Finally went to a cardio and he took me off everything and put me on 20 mgs Liinopril HTZT. In mean time saw a neurologist, might have been a Cerrebral T I A or due to poor posterior circulation in vetebral arteries from arthritus and herniated cervical disks. Had a caratoid Ultra sound, echo cardiogram, and 24 he heart monitor, all negative.. Tonight just had another spell of almost fainting, 3 times. B P this morning was 126/69, during spell 177/80 pulse 95.
Got to be hormonal what else can set something off so fast.
Dr keeps saying adrenals and kidneys very rare yet recent lab tests on kidney function show high creatineView Thread
