darn medial tests

Mrs. demanded that I get a physical, so I went. Blood pressure seemed low to the docs, so now I get these tests.., One of them is wearing a band on my finger all night, which measures oxygen in my system and pulse. It records the readings and they down load it at the office. I return the box to the office and the girl starts the down load. She gets a frown, calls another woman over to look at the screen. So I says "What?" She says the doctor will call and tell you. Probably this afternoon. i hint around and she won't tell me crap. So what was my pulse, you can tell me that. She answers it ran between 52 and 71. Isn't that good? She says the doctor will call you. Well it has been 36 hours and still no call.

Re: darn medial tests

Most people claim high blood pressure if there is a problem. I wonder what causes low blood pressure? Mine has always been a touch lower than normal but my doc sais thatis good. I am 43.

Re: darn medial tests

when I showed up at the doctor's office this week, it was 120/72 and pulse was 66 After walking a hundred yards from the car to the office. A week back it was 110 over 60 something after the same walk.

And I am 61. it aggravates the crap out of me that I feel fine and they gotta run all these tests, just to see if something is wrong.
