My boyfriend has had high blood pressure for a number of years now, he is 46 and also has chrons but this has only been diagnosed withint the last 3 years.
He has been to the doctors on a few occasions to have a heart monitor fitted too due to him having occasional 'jumps' and sometimes its beats really fast for no reason. Nothing officially came of this either.
December last year he had yet anouther monitor, this time to take blood pressure morning and night for 7 daysm the results were noted as 'higher than it should be' so a few blood and unine tests followed, the results of which are clear. The problem is where to go from here? The doctors seem to be happy that he is 'OK' and are leaving him to it until the next time they check his blood pressure during a routine visit and notice its high, they;ll send him home iwht the monitor aghain and the same thing shappens again. Is this justy a monitoring game for now until something really bad happens??
I just need osme guidance about how other people have dealt with theis situation please? I understand that there is an element of 'pushing' the doctoros to do more but he isnt the sort to do that, he will happily sit and wait.
thanks in advance.
