Hi, I have always read, and been told by doctors, that it's impossible to feel when your blood pressure is high, but I beg to differ. I am taking 10mg amlodipine and 4mg doxazosin at the moment, but if I forget to take my dose, I certainly know about it. My heart starts to pound and miss beats, I feel nauseated, breathless, shaky and extremely anxious, In short, pretty dreadful It's at the point where I am terrifed to be any distance from the house and then realise I have forgottent to take my tablets. I sometimes find it even starts as I'm approaching the time to take them, so even though most days I stick to the same time, I start feeling unwell beforehand. The problem is that I am between a rock and a hard place as I get side effects from the meds, which are unpleasant, and have done with several of them over the years, yet can't lower them because my blood pressure soars. A real nightmare; this is starting to rule my life.
I wondered if anyone feels anything like this, or any other feelings when their blood pressure is running high? I can't surely be the only person who knows without doubt that they have high blood pressure? I would be very interested in any thoughts on this.
