I've recently had bad hot flashes at night, sweating, dizzy, flush...feeling like my head was going to explode! Even went to the ER and the docs diagnosed me with vertigo.
Doctors said my blood pressure was borderline 143/93 and decided to medicate me. The side effects that I experienced from the medication made me think I was losing my mind. 3 ER visits ...Needless to say my anxiety rose and so did my blood pressure. I even went to see a cardiologist to run a battery of tests ...heart normal.
I've weaned myself off all BP medicine and doctors still want to medicate but I'm still boarderline. My BP spikes when I have a peri episode...probably cause of my anxiety about this whole new chapter. At least I know my heart is ok. Now when I have an episode...I just breathe through it and let it pass.
Nights are the worse....hard to sleep.
