[QUOTE=Autumn;35151586]tachycardia and averaging 150/100, woooo![/QUOTE] Better than tachycardia with a-fib, and 220/180, got to see that the first time i actually took a BP on someone that was actually "sick" I was like "holy balls". or better than someone i heard who had 60/40, but they were pretty much coding, got to clean the bi-pap they used on the guy an hour later. Speaking of BP, i really need to get a job that puts me in the position where i can take vitals, as i need to practice doing them.

Right leg is constantly stiff and feels like it has a huge knot inside of it, occasionally it's really painful and it gives me a slight limp. It feels like the muscle is always flexed/tense all the time too.

Base Vitals should go in Primary Assessment A.B.C.

[QUOTE=Dysgalt;35151279]Are you drinking upwards of 2 gallons of water/liquid a day? Because if not could be dehydration causing it.[/QUOTE] Pretty sure 8 liters is not the minimum amount of water to drink every day...
Body contains 6 litres of blood. You would be drinking twice the amount of blood that is in your body. [editline]16th March 2012[/editline] That's a fuck load of water. [editline]16th March 2012[/editline] And that's terrible.

When i was doing it I was thinking "how many rules am i breaking by doing this right now?" and the medic ran the vitals right before i had a go to make sure they had the correct vitals, so they didn't go blindly off what i got. [editline]16th March 2012[/editline] also 9-13 cups of water a day is recommended, but i drink around 5-8, and i feel fine.

[QUOTE=Autumn;35164965]yes, it is indeed better than someone with a-fib and 220/180. and it's probably why i'm not actually in a hospital right now and actually lead a perfectly normal life![/QUOTE] Why do you have a high baseline anyways? I remember you said they didn't know a few pages back, did they ever find out?
they still don't really know, or if they do it hasn't been important enough for them to tell me before i'm due my cardiologist appointment in a month or so. they did a bunch more tests around christmas, mostly looking at my lungs for clots, but since i've not heard anything i assume they've found nothing. one of the nurses doing my second ECHO said it looked like there might be a bit fused at the top of my heart or something, but *shrug* at the moment it's just a sinus tachycardia that they don't know what's causing it, and i also have high blood pressure. i don't know if they're related (it would seem to make sense that they were) but they've never spent too much time concentrating on the BP. so uhh... who knows!!

[QUOTE=Governor Goblin;35165256] My god, how are you still alive?[/QUOTE] Dude, it's not the end of the world, yeah it is something that you can't ignore, but one of my friends has something exactly similar (tachycardia with high BP), and i've seen a ton of other young people that have wacky vitals, it's not good, but not the end of the world, got to keep on top of it though. Also if you think your doctor is holding back, or not doing everything to the best of their ability, it doesn't hurt to heckle them about it. Christ it is your body and your life, don't be so passive with your doctors guys. Next appointment get on your doctor's ass about finding out why you have high BP as well, they shouldn't be concentrating on just one symptom.
(i think he was being sarcastic...) and it's not that i think they're holding back, i just don't think they've found anything or any conclusion that means they can do anything yet. for a while they were considering putting me on beta blockers but then my palpitations decreased a lot by themselves so they didn't, and another option was to put a small heart monitor under my skin to record for several months, but the doctor said with me being so young and the procedure scarring he wouldn't be overly happy to do it. it's just been carrying on same old for the past few years. if i start passing out or anything like that then i'm sure they'll step up their game [editline]16th March 2012[/editline] *so young by comparison, seeing as most of the other patients i've seen in the department have been 60+ with the occasional 40 year old

[QUOTE=Dysgalt;35159646]Go walk or something, sitting on your ass all day does not help that.[/QUOTE] I do. Usually ill walk around the neighborhood for about an hour or do a 30 min run on medium resistance on my treadmill. (I am a lazy son of a bitch most of the time,would stretching every couple hours/hour help?)

Wow, that's the stupidest ad I've ever seen.
The large quantities of caffeine, nicotine and alcohol I've consumed this night made me wake up with a pounding heartbeat. It's pounding quite hard right now and it isn't too consistent. [editline]18th March 2012[/editline] Shit. I think I need to go eat. I shouldn't had drank that alcohol with an empty stomach.
do you guys reckon if i'm finding myself leaning closer and closer towards my laptop/work screen it might be time for an eye test? i can still read everything fine from a distance, but i can't see any other reason why i'm subconsciously leaning forward unless it's because my eyes are struggling a little bit?

The way we found out was actually because I had to lean forwards while doing stuff on PC or moving a book close to my head to read. I'd say go for it even though you can't feel it yet. My eye vision has gone from "mildly OK" to "absolute shit" over those 8 years and EVERYTHING looks like a massice blob without my glasses.
