Hypertension or High Blood Pressure

It is always a good idea to have regular checkups with your doctor. I know at one appointment, I was surprised to learn that I had high blood pressure. Over the years, it has gone up and down and have had to change medications. One medication gave me a tickle in my throat and I was always coughing. It usually happened at the most inopportune times too such as being on the phone at work. A change of meds took care of that. If you haven't had a physical for a long time, or have never had one, you might consider doing that. Many are walking around with Diabetes too and don't know it and it is damaging their bodies even though they feel good.
