I'm Dying: Who Can Help?

I did my intercontinental bank medicals at ideal hospital here in abuja yesterday. My BP check revealed 150/100 and the doctor prescribed drugs and asked me to proceed and do other tests and come back today to recheck the BP. When I got there, it manage to drop to 140/90 which he said is still high. Though he jokingly said I Should remember him when I start making money and keep an eye on my BP. I'm still very restless about it considering the fact that I have been jobless for more than 2 years. Pls help!

ITS HARD TO SEE NIGERIAN YOUTHS WITH NORMAL BP

THERE IS SO MUCH TENSION

SO JUST CHILL AND TAKE ANXIETY PILLS

THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT U WILL NOT BE EMPLOYED BECAUSE OF BP

WHEN SO MANY THINGS CAUSES HIGH BPP EVEN INHERITED

ANY BANK THAT SAYS THEY CANT EMPLOY U because OF BP IS NOT IT

AND I TRUST IBPLC THEY WONT USE OMNE BP TEST TO CONCLUDE THAT U ARE A THREAT TO THEM

@ kommy,

Be strong. Keep your eyes and heart on the promises of God in the Bible which is that you will prosper in all aspects of your life, health, finance etc.

I will advise you to consider going into business if viable, although this may be hard because of the condition of Nigeria and the issue with our "leaders", so they call themselves.

At times we wish the worst for ourselves via utterances we make. My dear sister, first i must say ur caption for this post was not aptly chosen.

However, as per the BP issue, yes, 140/90 is not normal but that does not mean u will not get the job.

Several issues can be responsible.

HBP may be hereditary, it could also be owing to other factors like being overweight and all that. The drugs u were given can surpress the condition but if the underlying cause it not addressed, it would only be on a temporary basis.

When i had a change of job last year, my BP at the test hit the roof - 170/120! Meanwhile i was feeling quite normal.

I was placed on drugs for about three weeks and in the end, it was brought down to about 128/80. Of course when i got the job, i quit the drugs cause i gather some of them have long-lasting effects. In a shot while, my BP went up again to about 160/95 or so. It wasn't until i took the issue into my hands that things started facing a workaround.

The body needs exercise, inculcate this in ur weekly routine. Cut down on salt intake and watch what u eat!

Go slow on alcohol (that's if u drink). Doing all these and more, u would be surprised at the result the next time u go for a BP test! You can even go the extra mile of purchasing a Sphyg (used to check bp), it does not cost much. This u can use in the short run to monitor ur progress.

True, the time to act is now because i am told the consequences of high BP can be disastrous once one approaches 40years! One does not need to wait that long anyway.

In summary, just chill out. You have gotten the job. The worst that can happen i suppose is ur office might ask u to go for another checkup after a few months.

Congrats.

No you are not dying and your BP is just on the fence.Anything above systolic of 140 and diastolic of 90 will be considered high.However I believe you will get the job.

You will need to look after yourself,you may invest in some test yourself appliances,that was what I did some few months back and my BP is stable now,you need to worry less and try not to get worked up unnecessary.

Come back here and tell us how it went,Good Luck

BP is too minor to stop you when we all know its situational. 140/90 isn't too high. You 'll get the job. Don't forget GOD.

You need to relax, why worry about that ? This is why your bp was probably high. you are too young to be having bp pressure, the job might not even be your dream job. Take it easy and look to the almighty for a way out, no job is worth your life.
