Head rushing

I have high blood pressure on and off a lot lately and have been feeling like I'm in a sorta fog. My brain feels way off I'm scared that something is really wrong but can't go to the er or doctor cause I have no cash. I notices sometimes when I stand up my head feels full and I get a weird rushing sound I dont know what it is but I'm really scared. Could I be heading for a stroke? Stroke and heart attack is a family genetic I can't escape. My dad died when he was 47 yrs old my grandma had a massive stroke.

  • O my, you can go to the ER they have to see and treat you no matter if you have insurance or not. You will receive a bill, but I think that is a lot better than not knowing what is going on with you. Good luck!

  • You should be asking a doctor this question, not the moms on Cafemom. Go to an ER now. The billing department has payment plans, and they also have other options - better safe than sorry. If you die, who will take care of your children/family?

  • What u r experiencing is an emergency. It is not at all normal. They have the equipment to do testing to figure out what is wrong.

  • Cash or not you might want to go to the ER. It sounds like you could be heading for a stroke.That is nothing to play with.
