My Doctor and other Doctors seem to can't find a medicine that works for my high blood pressure what can I do to get and keep my blood pressure in check
Hello Mr. Morgan, have you tried taking three BP meds together? If so, and the medication didn't work, it's resistant hypertension. In this case, your Dr. may try to find underlying causes if any, like aorta problem, kidney problem, or sleep apena, in the meanwhile keep adjusting medications to find the optimal type and dosage for you. You also need to review your menu, cut sodium intake, cut alcohol intake.
There's a reason for everything, Mr. Morgan. There's a cause to resistent hypertension, doctors make efforts to find it out, either unhealthy lifestyle, medication, underlying disease or other conditions that can lead to hypertension. However it may take some time.

The excess strain and resulting damage from high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) causes the coronary arteries serving the heart to slowly become narrowed from a buildup of fat, cholesterol and other substances that together are called plaque. This slow process is known as atherosclerosis.

As arteries harden with plaque, blood clots become more likely to form. When an artery becomes blocked due to an accumulation of plaque or a blood clot, the flow of blood through the heart muscle is interrupted, starving the muscle of oxygen and nutrients. The damage or death of part of the heart muscle that occurs as a result is called a heart attack (myocardial infarction).

Warning sign of heart attack:

  • Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes – or it may go away and then return. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.
  • Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath. This can occur with or without chest discomfort.
  • Other signs. Other possible signs include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
