Ken just called and said his "plant doctor", (the one at his work),took his BP and it was 176/110.
He's takeing 200mg. verapamil. This is nutz ain't it?
He only used the Imitrex inj. once yesterday and once the day before, so I wouldn't think it could be that.
I don't know what's going on with him.

Isn't that close to heart attack zone?
We're trying our damnest to get these CH from hell undercontrol and now this.
We were just talking yesterday about how he thinks its a damn wonder he doesn't have a stroke with these clusters because of all the pressure and now this.

Don't know what to do except go BACK to the doc AGAIN.
(we're all on a first name basis now anyways, i'm expecting to see assigned seats for us in the waiting room anyday now.)

Anyone experience this before? Ken hasn't in the past cycles or even with out a cycle his bp runs 135/80.
