View Full Version : High BP,TIA'S and Lupus

06-26-2008, 05:40 PM
:shock: Sunday p.m. my bp spiked up to stroke level. I have TIA's and am on coumadin and bp meds and norvasc and atenol. So I was really scared. Today is my second day of my increased meds. Finally started to work! Guess God doesn't want me yet. That's fine with me! I did not want
to end up paralyzed on one side or worse. I went through that back in"76"
form what they called giuone berret . Not spelled right, been a long time.
So lupus is looking a little better than another alternative. Who'd ever thought that would come out of my mouth.
