    I’d been having breathing issues & had a pulmonary embolism in 2013, so ended up in urgent care where after D dimer and other blood tests and a CT scan and chest xray the doc said I seem to have pulmonary hypertension. Am going to see a specialist on Tuesday. In the meantime I’m back home and doing odd things like sweating when folding laundry. So of course I’m also having great anxiety about this, which probably doesn’t help. At entry my BP was 164/72. Usually it’s in the 110-20/50-70 range. She said they’d take it again, but didn’t. So not sure what’s going on there.

    Doc gave me antibiotics (sinus infection/drainage) and steroids.

    As a side note, I have had atrial fibrillation off/on for over a decade now. I’m overweight but have lost 40 pounds in the past year and am steady on keeping that going.
