Autonomic dysreflexia

2 Dec

Well I survived my most serious autonomic dysreflexia episode yet last night. The end of my Foley catheter must have been jammed in the bladder outlet. As a result, my blood pressure went through the roof, and I experienced kind of headache you would rather die from. While being rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, I noticed that my blood pressure was 212 over 144: right up there in stroke territory. This morning I had my catheter changed out , and I’m slowly on the mend. Whew!
