Here is a problem that may or may not affect you at some point in your life; Damage to the Carotid sinus due to radiation of the Head and Neck. If you are having problems with too Hi or too Low of a blood pressure or maybe a mixed Hi & Low, you may want to just keep this web site in your files somewhere.
As most of you know my first radiation to the head & neck was 180rads for 35 treatments and 11 months later I had to do it all over again this time 120rads twice a day for 35 treatments. The side affects of all this are just now starting to show-up. I will keep you all posted if there is a treatment to repair the damage to the Carrotid Sinus, at lease now I know what is causing my blood pressure to fall so low.
Have a great day everyone
