I'm still on meds for high blood pressure from the pregnancy. I'm down to one pill(100mg) and tonight after dinner my BP was 118/78. Usually I don't handle sodium well at night even in small amounts(and trust me almost everything has sodium), but now my numbers are starting to go down. I hope I'm not getting excited for nothing. I'm ready to get off these pills. I've been doing everything I can to be healthier and I think it's finally working.

I had a MRI on Saturday. I have a Chiari malformation, and it was just a check up MRI because I still have some pressure in my head. My neurologist said he didn't see any papilledema so hopefully my brain is not under any pressure. I have an appointment Wed morning to get the results.
