Today I am calling the doctor, at 9:01am sharp. For the past 2 weeks I have been having a few of these mini dizzy spells. But yesterday was just awful. I probably had about 4 or 5 of them.
At first I thought, perhaps it was related to my hypertension. So after the one that happened when I was sitting at the computer, I checked my blood pressure shortly thereafter (as soon as I was able to stand without falling over) and it read 115/92. That's not bad.
Then several hours later it happened again. This time when I check my BP it was 153/102. What the heck? Maybe it has something to do with my blood pressure running high and low. I don't know.
I talked to my mom and she told me that dad had a problem with vertigo. So I looked up vertigo and yep, that pretty much has the symptoms. Except for the nausea which I also have.
Of course, this morning I get up and my head just feels...off. I don't know how to describe it. It isn't a constant state of dizziness...just kind of light headed and on the verge of being nauseaus.
It is 7:54am according to the clock in the living room. I guess I will go and get my shower. I have an hour and 7, now 6 minutes until I can call and try to get into the doctors.
Wish me luck. Have a healthy day.
