I'm 30 years old. I finally finished school. Got licensed to work my profession. Got offered a job finally (competition is strong). Went for a physical with their doctor. BP was at 155/100.
and I'm already taking:
Metropolol 50 mg twice a day
Losartan 100 mg
hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg
Doc told me he could not pass me but I could visit my primary doctor to adjust my meds and to have him sign a waiver. Went to my primary and he said he cannot sign the waiver until its under control 😗-(
"start taking metropolol 100 mg twice a day and I'll see you in a week" he says.
labs/procedures done: Echo, heart stress test imaging, MRI of kidneys for stenosis, adrenal gland tumor check. Everything came back normal.
When I do check my BP its usually fluctuates between 160/110 to 135/90 usually hangs around 150/100 even with those meds listed.
I don't know what to do. My BP is so stubborn. And I've also created a phobia to having my blood pressure taken (someone people hate needles, well I hate BP cuffs). I'm so frustrated, its unbelievable. Please any advice would be great.
