Collapse and antenolol

Posted , 4 users are following.

last April I collapsed with no prior indication fell flat on my face onto Tarmac did damage to teeth and head, two days ago I was in the kitchen felt that I wasn't in control for split couple of seconds then collapsed, out only for approx five seconds my son said, came round and asked him what happened there then, he called paramedics who checked everything bp was very high, they called ambulance and off to Coventry hospital, on way over my bp was registering 198/128, more test at hospital now going back next week to see unexplained loss of conscience for more tests, Had to see my own Doc yesterday and she put me straight onto Antenolol, not sure how long these will take to react, since collapse two days ago just feel tired

      Hi. How awful for your husband and you. I am the same age as your husband and have been suffering from high bp for several years which is controlled by ramipril. Your husband may well have other underlying issues which your GP should identify. The further tests may well draw some conclusions. You don't say if your husband smokes, drinks or is overweight. All these things catch up with you eventually as does lack of exercise. Good luck and keep us posted.

      Doesn't sound like he's a high flyer and if he's of normal height (not that I know what normal height is LOL ) his weight is not too bad, not his heart as they would have kept him in, could be he has a virus or migraines, you sadly have to wait for further tests before you will know for sure.

      Hope he's feeling better now, I do get head spins but don't pass out thank goodness.

      Just realised didn't read numbers, his were quite and could cause feinting, his meds should bring it down, my OHwere considerably higher when he was ffirst diagnosed and he was falling over with half fronts, he's fine now .

      Hi there. How has hubby been for the last few days? Anymore incidents? I think other posts may be right in that he could be suffering from a nasty virus or something which is causing the fainting. The high bp could just be a symptom not a cause.

      Keep us posted.
