How's the old ticker
Don't know because they never got the EKG machine to print. They'll try again when I go back next month. BP was high because I've had decreased ROM with acute pain in my shoulder for the past two months and I burst an axillary cyst over the weekend on the same side which feels like it's burning and the Dr. tested my BP after the ROM exam and doing palpation instead of before. I'm hoping for TOS instead of adhesive capsulitis because I don't want it to be early onset diabetes. I've gained 15 lbs. since I returned to NJ in and started eating meat and pasta again in September and quit drinking in November. Need to start doing yoga again. Going to get antibiotics later today after the prescription is filled for the burst cyst.
Surely they just looked at the monitor itself then for the EKG.
Never heard of a burst cyst affecting BP but that's pretty interesting. Why not just test on the other side?
I know diabetes is associated with adhesive capsulitis but without looking up the stats, I imagine more people with adhesive capsulitis don't have diabetes than those who do.
Because the doctor wasn't in the room. First it was just the tech and then she brought in the all three of the receptionists to try to figure it out. If they got a reading they didn't tell me and I'm sure they didn't tell the doc. They said they would just try again next month.
It's the pain from the burst cyst (searing burn during abduction/adduction/elevation or actually any movement of skin on skin or skin away from skin) and the pain from the glenohumeral attachments of tendon/ligament/muscle at the coracoid/acromion processes that made my BP go up.
Only 3% of the population get "frozen shoulder" and people with diabetes are at higher risk if wikipedia is to be trusted.
I get intern's disease when I read too much if not full blown hypochondria. So I hope everything is ok. Pretty sure I have undiagnosed dyspraxia though.
They did blood work today too, which I've never had, so I'll know what's up next month.
