So my husband has always had a problem with high blood pressure, he doesnt smoke, hardly drinks, diet isnt the best but he is not overweight and is very fit.
He has these random chest pains and headaches which he goes to check out but drs never seem to get past the blood pressure-theyre not sure whats causing the chest pains, so far we have heard, that the muscle around the heart is contracting, his lung is oushed up against his chest wall, and atery is blocked...so many different opinions and thousands of dollars in tests to not have any real answer.
He went up to hospital yesterday as the pain was quite bad, the Dr didnt have much to say but did prescibe him something, and has suggested he will need to be on blood pressure meds for the rest of his life now.
Im kinda ?? about it all- he is only 22 and like i said-very fit.
What can i do, what foods are good/bad for blood pressure, what makes it change how can we make it a bit easier in his lifestyle, im just really confused about it all and i want him to start feeling better-the headaches are really bad from the blood pressure, hopefully the meds help and he wont need painkillers but im wondering what else we can do to make it all a bit easier.
