... Thanks ja. I only asked because the BP med you were put on and the other suggested by your doc are both sometimes used to treat the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. If that was your case you wouldn't want to stop them without speaking to your doctor first. I didn't mean to imply you're hyperthyroid, just curious. (10 replies)
... Thank you, richh! Let me provide a few more details: I was put on this medication for hypertension. This was my first visit to my new doctor (I haven't been regularly for awhile because I haven't been able to find a pcp I feel comfortable with). The last few times I've had my bp checked in the last year, it was occasionally running in the 130's/high 80's or low 90's. This... (10 replies)
... Out of curiosity, did you happen to receive a flu shot prior to this? My doctor took my BP and it was 122/73. On the same visit she gave me a flu shot. Within a few days my blood pressure shot up to 160's/90's. Every joint in my body was aching. They put me on 5mg Bystolic. It is January and I am starting to see normal BP numbers some of the time. Mostly 130-140/80's. My... (2 replies)

... No you do not. You need to monitor it and do what you can to normalize it. generally a good doctor will give you 6-12 months to bring your BP down. This means all the "usual suspects." 1. Lose weight 2. Stop smoking 3. Cut back drinking 4. Get 30-60 minutes of exercise a day 5. Examine your diet; try the DASH diet 6. restrict sodium 7. Check your sleep pattern for... (11 replies)

... GLORIA: P.S. I just re-read your post. Your systolic #s are good (120 is obviously better than 130). Monitor your BP at home for a while. 120-130/90 is not alarming. Used to be that doctors worried more about diastolic, but now agree that a high systolic is a greater predictor of furture problems. I don't know if you have other health concerns with heart or kidney but at this... (2 replies)
... Up to 140 over 90 is considered 'high normal'. 140 over 90 or higher, is regarded as HBP. See you doctor anyway. ... (11 replies)

... jenn, I'm with Rick, I wouldn't treat it and just try some salt restriction. (Obviously weight reduction isn't necessary.) I don't know your age, but the older you are the better your numbers look. If you start fiddling up into the 90's regualrly, then maybe rethink the drug picture! (5 replies)

... Hi Theresa I understand you wanting to vent, I feel my concerns landed on deaf ears (where the doctors were concerned) they were just so eager to get those meds down me. I had a girl 27/11 - number 2. I found during this pregnancy I got heart palpations whenever I had caffiene - like you heart pounding through my chest so hard it was frightening - so I cut out coffee and... (10 replies)

... A diastolic of 90 or over is considered too high if sustained over time. An occasional reading of 90 happens to a lot of people if anxious or stressed or having just eaten a big meal etc. BP "spikes" are normal... ... (2 replies)

... My blood pressure is around 190/130 pulse 60 while sitting, but when I lay down it is around 130/90 pulse 72. Why? I've checked it in the morning after sleep and at night before bed and is the same. No drugs, at rest etc. (3 replies)
... I thought to add this to my previous Losartan Hctz post, especially because I didn't want to fill the board with my posts and responses, but I really think that this might be a different subject, specially because this was the beginning of High Blood Pressure trouble for me, and obviously it started before the medications. In short: I've had several, including last night,BP... (4 replies)
... experience how much does BP changes and how often should I take it. I believe I'm becoming obsessed, specially when I get a reading near or over 140 systolic or 90 and above diastolic, which has been the case recently. Up to the point that I try to calm sawn stay put and repeat measurements a few minutes apart. ... (7 replies)
... Thanks roxcyn I'll do that. I really have to get back to my previous condition. I'll start with aerobic exercise this week and even if it's the worst season to do it, I'll start a diet too, I hate taking meds. Speaking of which, yesterday, after my first pill of Losartan, my BP spiked to 181/86 measured on a wrist monitor, that I know that they're not the most accurate,... (3 replies)
... If all the basic causes (low hemoglobin, hyperthyroidism, lung problems, pain, medications that cause elevated pulse) of increased pulse have been ruled out, then it is quite possible that this is the result of increased sympathetic "tone"; an abnormality not uncommonly seen in hypertensives. If your HR hasn't always been elevated, you might be sure that your blood pressure... (1 replies)
... I had been taking Diovan 80 since 2 years now and the blood pressure is still at 130/90..Recently my heart rate has been observed to climb and showing 95-100..I did a check on thyroid and found to be normal, ECG normal, Cholesterol normal..what else could be the reason for this increased pulse rate?

... Hello there! No you are NOT a freak. I envy you your readings, even what you consider high, on a day to day basis would be a bonus for many, including me. Not a day goes by that I dont hit the 150/90 mark. It was just a few years ago that "normal" was 130/90 so again your higher readings would have been considered ok. Its easy for us to say don't panic and try not to worry... (9 replies)
