Went to see the eye Dr. today at 1:00...

She said there is quivering of the eye ( left eye ) which is a good indication the mini stroke will repair itself and the double vision caused by the nerve that works the eye muscle will go back to working again. She wants to see me for followup in 6 weeks and then in 12 weeks.

I asked her if taking Ocuvite pills would help? She said NO....take a B vitamin Complex

Tina picked them up at Eds health food store in town. $27.00 for 60 ct. horse pills slow release.

Thank cookingirl....

Tina panicked and when the vision happened, she bought me Ocuvite which did not help as far as I know.
I do take Cemtrum Silver for men over 50. Now with the B Complex, I guess I'm well covered.

I just have a B/P problem. I cannot get that Top first number low enough.

I runs 180 to 160 / 90 or 80

I would be happy with 140/80. I guess the 190/110 caused the stroke.
The Dr. said that High B/P or Diabetes will do that ?????.....

Jimmy, I noticed that when I switched to decaf coffee, my bp went down quite a bit...I use a Keurig machine, for just me.
Now, after 3 months of decaf, I find that when I have a full caff coffee, I am wired!!!!
You really cannot tell the difference in taste of the decaf. It will take about a week to get the caffeine out of your system...I think it is worth it......
just a thought....and when I lose at least 5 lbs, the bp goes down also........

For me, the top number is the one which runs ski high when I am nervous or anxious......
The best one was at the doc's when it was 117/ 78!!
At home it is usually lower...when stressed it can go as high as 150/90!!!!!!!!!

That's a good thought using decaff. I cannot tell the difference either.
I did limit the caffeine to one, and maybe two in the am. I need the one at least to get me going. I do drink decaff green / black tea that Tina bought us.

I don't smoke any more ( 3- 1/2 years now, but I do Vape ) E-Cig use; with low nicotine. I can breath now, and no coughing spells or difficulty breathing like when I smoked... 2- 1/2 to 3 packs a day! WoW!!! I know...Crazy huh?

I can afford to lose weight, and I know for a fact, that if I can shed 20 off this 6 foot frame 250 Lbs. my pressure will come down.

I still cannot figure out why in the AM my pressure is the highest.
This am it was 182 / 90....... now at 3 PM it is.....152 / 70

I take VALSARTAN-HZTZ 160-25 MG IN THE MORNING
and.... METROPROLOL TARTA -50 MG BEFORE BED TIME.

1 Full size 325 MG aspirin at bed time also.

There seems to be no rhyme nor reason to it???

My heart rate at rest is generally 72 to 76 B.P.M. That's great for a soon to be 70 year old man. At least I think so!

Thanks cookingirl.
One important thing, would be to check the calibration of the gauge on my test cuff.
I am using a dial gauge, but I would prefer a mercury manometer.
I may purchase one on ebay.

It is the bottom number you need to keep down. At 80 it is borderline high.

I would be happy with 140/80.  I guess the 190/110 caused the stroke.
The Dr. said that High B/P or Diabetes will do that ?????.....
