Effects of BC

4 years 5 months ago #46580 by kwhite65
I hadmy 6th BCG treatment Monday. Felt the usual tiredness achy feeling. Otherwise Tuesday and wed was great. Thursday I had to be transported to emergency room with very elavated blood pressure. Gave me nitro and baby aspirin. All test showed my heart was fine. Today elevated pressure again. I'm no saying the BCG caused it. I guess I'm asking could it cause this. What I've research so far doesn't mention high blood pressure as a factor. Usually my bp is around 120/70. Yesterday the highest was 180/140. Trying to understand this crazy body of mine. .

I also sometimes had those side effects. Like Sara I experienced many different side effects over the course of 30 treatments including, a rash, some joint pain, nausea, chills and all the usual. Nothing however lasted for any extended time period.

AND those reactions...telling us that our bodies are responding to the BCG...is exactly what we want!!

It seems that it might be your bodies immune system reacting to the BCG every way it can. That is one of the bodies defense mechanisms.
