when taking zubolv blood pressure goes up
From this study (5 months ago):
I suffer from extreme pain in my hand/wrist area after a boxer break/fracture that occurred 4 years ago.. I also have very bad pain in my sciatic nerve(l4 vertebra) that flares up at least a dozen times a month.. I have a chronic back pain on my c1 to c3 vertebra.. Feels as if it is a tingling/zapping/tickle in between the vertebra.. The pain and tickle feel as if I cannot get to them and are on the inside or otherside of spine.. I get very bad tension headaches/ migraines 1 to 3 times a week. Starting at the base of my skull and running up above my eyes.. Sometimes it's a feeling of pain/tickle on my brain sometimes it's a dull pressure sinus pain, sometimes it's a like a scorpion is stinging my brain.. Unusual symptom is when I look directly into a light bulb the pain is subsided but pressure still exists. Also have muscle tension very bad around the bothered areas of the neck and upper back between shoulder blades.. Cracking, stretching, traction, inversion table, chiropractor and massage therapist have not helped. Only thing that relieves it is wrapping a towel around my neck/head and pulling up wards taking pressure off my spine.. Then I feel normal and can breathe better and hear better until I release the towel and reality is back.. Have been in couple car accidents, skiing accidents, snowmobile accidents and worked as a mechanic for 4 years bent over cars all day.. Also for 5 years I mowed lawns for a living and road big machines with no suspension for 8 hours a day for 5 years straight... X-ray shows lots of arthritis.. Have lack of funds to get MRI.. I have tried to get pain pills from doctors but they tell me to take ibuprofen Aleve and ice it.. I couldn't take it anymore and started buying Vicodin and oxycodone from people.. I then grew a small tolerance 50 to 75 mg a day and it became a financial issue... I seen a suboxone doctor to get off opiates before I was bankrupt... Now back to 10 ibuprofen and or Aleve a day and tons of anxiety stress and high blood pressure from the pain..
