Doc visit went ok. She was actually quite nice and very sympathetic about my injury, recovery, weight gain, aches and pains. She gave me a new strategy about eliminating my awful PMS symptoms - TOM still hasn't arrived yet and I am miserable! She is adding an extra med for my high blood pressure, adding a vitamin D supplement, and eliminating the progesterone I was taking for PMS that isn't working and could be contributing to high BP.
I go back in April to get bloodwork and see how things are doing. I really hope to lose some weight by that time! I've got to do it. She told me that I will definitely have hypertension and not pre-hypertension like I do now unless I lose a good deal more weight and eat very healthy. I have to get that blood pressure down and the only way to do that naturally is through weight loss and exercise.
