My Body Is Out to Kill Me!!

Had my first endocrinologist appointment with UCSF on Tuesday. I think it went ok. But my BP was 150/110. Since getting acro it's usually higher, around 140/90. Normal for me used to be 120/80. Anyway, it's getting up there. So the endo wants me to schedule an echocardiogram to rule things out. He wanted me on BP meds right away, but I hate to take any med I don't have to. Especially since I usually get ALL of the side effects. I'm going to see if the Sandostatin injections help lower my BP, since I'm thinking it's an acro symptom. The endo suggested I start injections 3x a day for 3 weeks, then if all goes ok I'll go the once a month route.
