I went to see the GP yesterday and he was absolutely crap. After telling him my symptoms he just sat there looking at me and then as soon as I told him that I’d been getting info off the net, he started going into one about “there’s too much info on the net and it will worry you more”.
We had a bit of a debate about it and then he checked my heart, eyes and blood pressure, which he said was all fine.
My blood pressure earlier in the day was 140/90 and the second attempt was 137/83.
I informed him that I have been working out for 18 years and have never had any headaches and all he told me to do was take 2 asparin before the session.
He couldn’t get it into his head that I wanted to know why I was getting them, not just how can I stop them.
He asked me if there were any family members with heart problems, which there is. My grandfather died at 57 from a heart attack, my one uncle has had a triple heart bypass at 62 and my other ucle has just had a stent inserted into one arterie with two others having to be cleaned at 55 years old.
He said that was a problem seeing as he is so young. I don’t want to start worrying over that considering I am only 32, but I have altered my exercise and diet anyway.
I will take all the info I have been given on this forum. I will start eating more Bananas, but what is the purpose of Bananas.
Thats funny because i was going to suggest you take an aspirin before you go to the gym but decided to go with the banana route. Anyways as BOSTON said potassium lowers your blood pressure, but from the looks of it your blood pressure is fine. You might just need to work on your breathing and do some stretching. Other than that i’m out of suggestions. Good luck man.
