Hi Jo, and thanks for the reply.
I went for my Blood Pressure check up this morning, and it hadn't come down any since last week ... I've still been dealing with the loose ends of the mortgage and my girlfriend is having some hassle at work, suffice to say ... it's not been the easiest of weeks (yet again!).
Anyway, at one point my reading was 182/104 ... insanely high. It eventually came down once I'd calmed down, but still read 172/102, so I've been put on medication to bring my BP down to a safe level. I've been started on the smallest dose (10mg) to see if it has any effect, if not I'll need to moved up to a higher dose, as well as make changes to my diet (more fruit & veg for a start). I'm 6"3 tall, and weigh 15.5 stone (not sure of pounds measurement, sorry). I'm nowhere near obese, don't smoke and don't drink apart from the odd social occassion every two months ... if that.
I've also had various muscle twitches for almost three years now, and when I went to the Doctors for these at the time, he suggested I go and see a Neuro. Suffice to say, I came home and typed Muscle Twitches into Google ... and Motor Neurone Disease links greeted me. Suffice to say, I thought I was doomed. However, I just got on with it, learned more about these twitches, forgot the Neuro appointment, and now three years on the twitches have all but disappeared. For the record, my Mother has High Blood Pressure and also has random muscle twitches ... linked?
My Doc again reitterated that the CT scan was nothing to worry about, and I informed him that my girlfriend burst into tears when she heard I had to go for one. He basically said that the Southern General hospital (Glasgow's main neuro hospital) constantly reminds GP's of their services and if there is a lack of appointments. The Doc has a budget to use, and the Hospital wants their services used. Put 2 + 2 together, along with the need for me to have my mind put at ease, and you can see the end result.
Finally, my Doctor said that if there was anything major happening inside my head (or anywhere else), then these "symptoms" would not come and go for so long.
So, I'm going to phone the hospital and put the appointment for the CT back a few weeks, just to give this BP medication a good run to see if they help. My Doc also took four veils of blood to send for testing my Cholestorol, my Kindney functions, and probably for Diabetes, etc.
I'll keep you informed, and thanks again for your replies everyone.
