Head pain causes arm and chest pain…

I have always known that heart disease ran in the family, on maternal and paternal… and that is why back in 2007 we quit cigarettes and hubby had already quit alcohol 7 years before that… and we still got screwed on the issues…

When my shortness of breath hit, I thought for sure something was wrong… but the tests done, just said COPD, well I have had issues with bronchitis since forever… and I was still a smoker… okay, so even I can’t fix stupid…

Now, being on the BP med since last Friday… my numbers are still fluctuating and I am having pain in the veins on both sides of my neck, confusion, speech issues and balance… when I checked my heart rate, my pulse was high for me… 89 up to in the 90’s… mine is usually much lower… by 20 points or more…

I can feel a tightness in my body and when I get excited, which I try to avoid or when I do anything physical, it screws me up and I have to quit what ever I am doing….

Add the pain in my right lobe and their just went the tachycardia… and pain in my left lobe and my left eye seems to be the one hurting today… I just have no clue what to think or do… 

I have loss of confidence in my primary care and that is always hurtful when you can’t trust your own doctor… but it’s a catch 22 living here… We know we will be leaving here in the next 12 to 18 months and getting in with a new doctor just won’t work… so that means I have to be more informed than I want to be and it means I have to study more medicine than I want to study….

The symptoms I am dealing with now, are all associated with the brain… Knowing I have Autonomic and peripheral neuropathy, makes me acutely aware that vascular disease is probably the issue and nothing I can do, but wait for a phone call from the Kona Hospital and hope the test gets done, before I have a massive stroke or heart attack… like I said, lawyers are involved… Mike, I have to protect if I die…

I doubt the symptoms mean anything else… the damage, what ever name they give it, is extensive and the weight is dropping off daily… Since Friday of last week I have lost 8 pounds and unless this BP med has a diuretic in it, I shouldn’t be dropping weight this fast… I am not trying to lose weight… My weight is at a good point, much more weight loss and I will have to buy new clothes, just so my shorts and tops don’t make me look like Olive Oil… which FYI, is what my family used to call me… 

Maybe I am just exhausted, sleep doesn’t seem to be part of this BP med and keeping me calm isn’t happening either…

Instead, I am in lots of pain, lots of nausea, lots of sweating and all I am doing is typing…

Nope this ride can stop any time and hopefully at the hospital when they find out if my veins are that screwed up or blocked… and hopefully before anything else bad happens…

Just a FYI, Hawaii is a wonderful place to visit… but not live… and that is from experience of living in Europe, the Far East and all over America… I can not wait to leave here and go buy our 20 acres, so that peace and quiet I am looking for, I can enjoy before my days on earth are done….

The Aloha spirit left these islands a long time ago, now it is capitalism and bullying and worse of all, people do not respect anyone’s rights, but their own… so over stupid religious bigots…

Life has a habit of getting even, we just sit back and watch… and hopefully my lawsuit settlement arrives this year, so we can afford to move… Hope springs eternal… If it doesn’t work that way, our savings will move us next year…
