Ok, I went to the doc yesterday and they aren't at all concerned about my bp which was 176 over 100. I heard 130/90 is the cut off? Anyway, They paid little mind to it. Today I have had a headache, and then as I was trying to lay my daughter down I got really shaky, and I am dizzy and feel really weak. Any suggestions?

  • go with your instinct. if you feel like you arent doing well and are nervous you need to voice that. dont let a doctor just brush off your fears, you can definitely tell them that you want to talk to more than one doctor

  • Go to the doctors right away! If you can have somebody else take you because it's not safe for you to be driving if you're dizzy and weak.
    If you dont want to go to the doctors at least call your nurse and let them know what's going on.
    They'll be able to help you more than anyone.
