Question: I'm a 53 years old gulf war vet. Every since the late 90s my blood pressure would jump from normal to panic mode 160 to 220 in all clinics, electronic stores, library etc. I have found no doctor willing to validate my issue a n was told by one of the doctors that no one would check me out. My personal doctor has never got a good blood pressure reading on my in his office. I've been to the VA hospital, clinics, psychiatrist they treat me like I'm contagious with something bad but the won't check me sometimes less than 20 feet outside the facility to compare the reading. I've got video. Who will help? Goldsboro NC
