I used to think of myself as generally healthy as I always lived a healthy lifestyle, I don't smoke nor drink and I exercise on a regular basis. It came as a shock to me and my family when one day I had to be rushed to the hospital because of a dizzying spell that hit me all of sudden.

busy everyday

As a teacher, I am basically a busy person in and outside of the house. Whether I am at work or at home, I seldom find time to rest. There are just a million things to do at home. It was one of those hectic days when this happened. From work, I did some laundry at home and such other household chores. I only stopped to face the computer for a few minutes and then it happened.

when the world started turning----

When I stood up from the computer to have a drink of water, I saw one of our cats lying on the floor so I stooped to give it a belly rub and that's when my head started spinning---really hard. It was as if the world had suddenly lost control and had begun turning around and around. After a few minutes in that condition, I had to run to the bathroom to vomit---

off to the hospital

So off to the hospital I was rushed and it was then that we found out that my blood pressure went up to 180/100----unusually high for me who had always maintained a 120/90 bp.

The prescription of medicines came and it was then that I learned that I was advised to take medications for a "lifetime."

Oh my.

Hi, Madan! I never got myself into any lab tests----just wasn't able to---so I am just probably "high blood"
