Left Corotid Presures Pain

I have had pressure in my carotid/neck mostly on left side or both at times. But now I am having this pressure/pain nearly everyday. I feel ok with it..but just wonder if its noteworthy to tell my PCP?

OH.. and I started my Rx Clonipin PRN. I take it when I feel myself get tachy to prevent a full blown adrenal surge. Both the Neuro and my beloved PCP said to watch my BP as it can raise it high and I already on a betablocker for high BP. Actually my BP is GOOD and even better when I use the clonidine. Its NOT typical to use clonidine as a PRN med and not continous.

Oh.. how I wish I had thise med YEARS ago.. I would not have gotten so bad.

Anyone else take RX Clonidine?

Thanks Jan

Probably worth getting checked out. especially if it's getting worse. I took clonidine, but didn't tolerate it. Per the usual. They can check your carotids very easily and not invasive at all. I guess I always think it's better to be safe than sorry. good luck! morgan
