I have Hypertension which is quite high and the bottom has been higher than what’s shown here in the top picture.
I have my Actemra Infusion for the treatment of the Rheumatoid Arthritis every 28 days and
I definitely feel the affects and flare alot when my Blood Pressure is up.Moments like this make my infusion nurse want to run don’t blame him I feel like it too at times.
I haven’t been doing so great this year it’s been quite the struggle trying to keep my BP under control and the flow on effect to the Rheumatic Diseases which I live with.
I own my own Blood Pressure Machine as I have to Monitor my BP in between medical visits. I feel quite fatigued like I’ve done a huge run like a Marathon without actually running the Marathon 🤒.
I can nearly hear my heart pounding out of my chest sometimes and feel light headed.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a full bodied systemic Disease and organs can be affected also.
#PatientsHavePower I really wish with everything in me that the chronic Illness‘ I live with
