... Thanks, Bethsheba. I never had high blood pressure until my mid-40s. Then it started creeping up steadily. I never reached a critical level (depending on how you judge that) but I had average readings of 165/90-95 and sometimes up to 170+ over 100+. That's pretty high and I suppose I should have been on medication. Funny enough, I seem to have reverse white-coat syndrome. My... (3 replies)
Taking bp ?
Aug 25, 2006
... Here is the problem with that logic based on a little experiment I did. I started exercising for about 3 minutes really vigorously (running on a treadmill). I took my blood pressure and it was 167/95. I continued to exercise another 10 minutes, stopped and took it again, it was 111/68. It has an inital spike and then gets below normal. Granted if it was still at 167/95 after... (24 replies)

... Well, you appear to have white coat. But, I suspect that you may actually have hypertenstion as well. While your morning readings might be fine. If they are going up from there throughout the day, I'd have to say you have hypertension. You should take an average of these home readings. Include morning, afternoon and evening samples. Use the average for evaluating where... (16 replies)
... I am back again! Today, I went to my doctor for getting my blood work results. When he took my BP. They were really high - 170/110 and 169/105. I was really tensed at that time. My pulse rate was something like 110. My doctor said my BP was extremely high and put me on hyzaar (50,25,12.5). I told my doctor that my BP readings fluctuate wildly and that this morning my...

... Just the fact that you have occasional readings of 135/80 should tell you that you probably have never had a hypertension problem in the first place. Remember, there are many things that can give false high readings of 160/90, but not many that can give false low readings. I would trust your readings of 135/80. It's probably even lower than that when you're lying down watching... (9 replies)
