Wow–I don’t want to jinx it–but I think the Midodrine is really working this time! This is round 3 for me with this medication and this is the highest dose and most frequent I’ve been prescribed. I’m taking 10mg three times a day. I’m no longer huffing and puffing after walking around for ten minutes. I walked through the mall with R.J for two full hours yesterday. I did come home and fall into a tremendously deep sleep for three hours afterwards–but actually during the walking I felt fine. Good, even. I’m hoping this continues!
Thought I’d even go so far as to measure my BP/Pulse today. Here’s what’s going on so far:
|Time||Blood Pressure||Pulse||Last Ate||Action|
|8:30||91/63||114||Night Before||After Waking Up. (standing)|
|9:20||79/55||109||Ensure/Banna Peanut Butter (fifteen minutes earlier)||Had to sleep. (standing)|
|11:30||90/62||101||Ensure/Bannana/Peanut Butter at 9:00AM||After waking up (sitting)|
|1:53||109/71||92||Leftover Chicken, rice, shortbread cookie, water||About half an hour after eating. Sitting)|
|3:00||101/64||93||Water||Sitting down, working, drinking water|
But I really haven’t moved today since I spent most of my afternoon working online. I got out for a few walks with Happy but nothing too back-breaking.
