To All Those Men Out There Who Never Go The Doctor: Get your blood pressure checked! I went 20 years of "good health" and no doctors and last Thursday I finally had to go in after 3 days of terrible lower back pain. Doc found that my BP was 280/124 and offered me a ride in an ambulance to the emergency room - I drove myself. After a 5 day stay in the hospital, tied to monitors, IVs, lots of blood tests, belly shots and more, I came home with 6 prescriptions, a BP monitor, and scheduled medical appointments for the next 2 months. My BP this morning was 152/82, still high but better. I was lucky and I thank the Lord for getting me into the doctor and very likely saving me from a massive stroke or major heart attack. I had no symptons and the doctors are still running tests to figure out why it went so high. Again, I was lucky-no organ damage and still alive. Don't mess with this, it will change your life big time!
