My blood pressure has settled down to more normal levels now. Instead of 200/100, it is now 135/85 with medication. But my orthostatic hypotension (OH) problem is back. OH is when blood pressure drops when I stand. Several times this past week I have became very faint and dizzy when I stood up. The solution--stand up very slow and give my blood pressure time to adjust.
My breathing continues to worsen and my voice cracks from time to time. This all is connected since myasthenia gravis effects these groups of muscles.
Two weeks from today I have my next appoint at Vanderbilt. Yea!
