A scary thing happened to me the other day. I was getting up from my chair about an hour after I had lunch. I had my feet up on the desk for most of that hour. When I stood up I began to feel incredible dizzy and felt like I was about to fall to my left. I composed myself and hurried to the staff bathroom. I splashed cold water on my face and felt a little better.
I then drove home and cajoled my son into napping so I could nap too. I woke up and was fine the rest of the night. One thing that was going through my mind during all this was OMG I am having a heart attack! I felt like Fred Sanford and knew this was the big one. But how could it be? I was in great health, lost 50 pounds and all my vitals were awesome! Why me?
After discussing with my doctor the next day, he decided it was a massive head rush due to having my feet up after I ate for so long. I was fine. This has led me to find a two point oh way to keep track of everything. After seeing a blood pressure monitor at Target today that connects to the iPad I was sold. I did however wait to come home and pick it up on Amazon. I will do a review soon but it looks awesome. Here is the link to the Withings BP800 Monitor.
I plan on doing a daily track of it and it will coordinate with an app that will keep all the info. I can then send it to my doctor for evaluation. I love it! More soon!
