-A Blog Entry-

I just had one of the most life threatning experience regarding my health last night.

Yesterday, came the first day for my monthly period. I spent my Sunday as a regular day. We went and visited my parents. My dad prepared Crispy Pata and went home early in the evening. Around 10pm, before sleeping, I felt some numbness trailing from the back of my head to my upper right arm and to the upper right part of my leg. The head area was painful. But for my extremities, it wasn't pain at all. The numbness itself made it too uncomfortable for me, that I had to kick my leg to be able to feel something.

I asked my husband to take my blood pressure, thinking that it went high because of the Pata. The result was exactly the opposite. My BP went down to 112/65 0r 69. Then I realize my monthly period had something to do with it. Symptoms for high and low blood pressure are the same. And with a history of being anemic, that explained it all.

For the past months, I never experienced this. My diastolic went to as low as 58 sometime in 2008. I got too relaxed and didn't realize for the possibilities: That it may happen again. Especially everytime I'll be having my monthly period.

What if I slept with a low blood pressure, will I still wake up the following day?

Btw Thank you for posting the award,I truly appreciate it =)

Evan's Mom said...

Thank God you're OK, but better take time to check up just to make sure. My diastolic is around 65-68 too but it's still considered normal in my case. But my hb is low (9.8) so my OB gave me iron tablets and I'm watching my daily iron and vit C intake.
Take care mommy, have a good day :)
