40yrs male. 5'11' 210# work construction and lift weights
Never smoked, drink my be two glasses of alcohol a year.
BP is usually normal, started having headaches from a pinched nerve in my neck (occipital neuralgia) and from my first dr visit for that my blood pressure has gradually ramped up. Only meds I'm taking are gabapentin, flexeril and tylenol. Non of which are suppose to mess with blood pressure.
I have been to my dr and was put on hydrochlorothiazide 25mg daily, that was 3 days ago. Anybody else that uses this, how long before it started to do it's thing?
Also, kind of a scary question, I've searched but get the same old answer. But from anybody that might of had an issue, what did your chest pain feel like?
I'm 40 and have worked hard all my life so pretty much every thing hurts every once in a while.
But while driving, I'v been having random pain that last about 20-30 seconds. Feels kinda like somebody is pushing their knuckle into my sternum.
There is plenty of Dr.s and Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners and EMT that know about my pressures and seem to not think much about it. But I know if I mention this pain everything will go nuts. I have great insurance so that's not a problem. Just don't know what to do. All I seem to think about right now is my wife and kids and whether or not I feel something that might not be therw..
Attached is my blood pressures for the past few days.
