I have been trying very hard to force smiles, be positive and yet, stay calm. This month hasn’t been the best. Actually , the past six months could have been better . Stomach problems , many doctor visits . Trips to the hospital . Tremors, balance problems and now my latest path is Potassium .
My body has held potassium for almost a year . It is being monitored close. My doctor decided it was getting too high. He chose to change my blood pressure medication thinking it may be retaining extra Potassium . My white cell count is always elevated with no reasons.
I had a reaction and after two more visits to the hospital I was told to go off the new medication and go back to my original one . This change caused my Potassium to reach a dangerous level, the quick change from new to old .
Once the level is too high, the heart goes into electrical shock and death follows. Now I am on a new blood pressure medication that takes a couple of weeks to work full force.
I have to monitor my blood pressure each day and after only four days my pressure is slowly rising and headaches and panic attacks have returned .
I am asking for prayers. I just want to have to deal with my Parkinson , not this and the concern of no longer breathing .
