Portrait at the doctor’s office.

I had my health check-up last week.  I have been feeling awful since my ears were plugged.  I couldn’t hear nothing.  My dear husband said it might be due to a sinus problem.  I didn’t have colds.  It’s just my ears were plugged I woke up one morning.

For about a week I tried to observe and did some research for home remedies for plugged ears.  But it didn’t go away.  So last month I went to see a doctor.  He checked my ears.  He didn’t see anything except wax build up.  My heart and lungs sounded great.  But my blood pressure was very high.  Upon learning about my health history, he prescribed a high blood press medicine for one month.  Then I have to come back to see him again to see if the medicine works.  After I took all the medicine, I didn’t come back to see him. I went to a family doctor instead, which was last week’s appointment.

It was quite a drive to our new family doctor’s office.  But I picked them because they open at 7:00 A.M..  Their location is convenient for my husband because it’s closer to his work.  His ideal time for appointment is 8:00 A.M..  And they are in-network with our health insurance plan.  My check-up went well.  The high blood pressure medicine I was taking was okay.  It helped my blood pressure down to normal.  And my ears were not plugged anymore.

As parents, we should always be aware of our health.  Getting sick is normal.  It’s our body’s reaction to bad elements in our surroundings.  Eating healthy, nutritious foods and regular exercise are highly recommended.  But if we feel something weird and is going constant, we should seek a physician’s help.  We only have one body.  We cannot take good care of our family if we do not take care of ourselves.

    My husband has high blood pressure and was taking medication for it. I’m glad to hear yours is back at a normal level! High blood pressure can be very serious.

    Glad everything went back to normal. I see loads of doctors with my health issues. One thing is true know your body. You are the best person to know when something is wrong.

    That is incredibly true. I try to take good care of myself, especially knowing that my kids depend on me to be at my best every day.

  6. You are absolutely right. I often don’t bother to follow that same advice myself.
