    My blood pressure has always been 90/70. Within one month it has steadily risen and now is 153/89.

    I take Nexium 40mg and Premarin 1.25

    I have had a complete hysterectomy

    This increase took place in almost weekly incriments

    I am 55

    I do not smoke (quit a month ago after 40 years)

    I drink approx. 10 to 12 drinks a YEAR

    I visited a physician who IMMEDIATELY, without any testing what-so-ever wrote a Rx for high blood pressure.  I refuse to take any medication without testing and being made to understand what is going on with my body and why I am taking these chemicals. I can not get doctors to listen to me. I think I have a problem - do you? Also, walking up the stairs in my home (approx. 20 steps) and I am gasping for air.  I am about 20lbs overweight. I have a personal trainer and work out at the gym 3x weekly.  Due to food allergies, I can only eat foods w/o any preservatives. No canned foods. Fresh Veggies/fruit,  Fresh chicken, fish & beef.  I eat mostly from the Southbeach Diet.
