I came to see Doctor Stephen Ferguson two months ago. I was suffering from very high blood pressure, painful knees and very, very tired most of the time. I am in my early 30’s. I was afraid that I was not getting better with the different health problems and I did not want to be tablet dependent for the rest of my life.
My knee pain was excruciating. I used to go to the gym three times a week because I wanted to keep fit for fear of putting on too much weight. It was an effort to keep it up to three times a week because my knees were playing up most of the time. Especially one of them. I had to be careful with the type of exercises I did so that my knees do not have further damage. I lost my enthusiasm at the gym because I could not train very hard. I was tired and in pain. Sometimes, I get up with tenderness around the knee joints. It could be worse on the left knee and then in a couple of days time, the pain will be worse in the right knee. I used heat pads, knee guards, rub balm on the knee and took pain killers to help with the pain.
I also had to be careful, because I suffer from high blood pressure. When I get my blood pressure checked, it always seems high. It was disappointing because I try to rest and tried changing my lifestyle a bit but did not get very far. My extreme tiredness reduced my social life to nothing at times especially during the weekend. I hardly had the energy to go out with my mates. When I am home, I sleep and rest during the evenings and spend most of the time indoors with my two children rather than taking them out. Sometimes I felt life was dull and boring. I know it was because I was unable to do much and felt unfair to suffer from high blood pressure in my 30’s.
I went to see Doctor Ferguson. He did a life blood test and then put me on an eight week programme. I listened to him and kept to it rigorously determined to get better. I am so glad to say that I see so much improvement. I took the vitamins, health drinks, blood cleanser and recommended exercises. I noticed my strength was back. I was able to go back to the gym. My knee pain disappeared. The stiffness and dull ache was not there, something I suffered most mornings. My blood pressure returned to normal which is a big relief. Overall, I feel great! Even
my children see the difference. I picked up my social life during the weekend and am so happy my tiredness is not a problem anymore. Thank you Doctor Ferguson for helping gain my life again!
