High & Low Blood Pressure Message Board


High & Low Blood Pressure Board Index


I have checked my blood pressure about 30,000 times since 1998, or about seven times per day. Prior to 1998 I ignored my blood pressure.

The reasons why I started exacting monitoring of my blood pressure was not because of the readings, per se, but because of the nasty symptoms which I was suffering.

I was having rapid, erratic strong or weak heart beats; was weak, was lightheaded, had chest pains, experienced over-sweating, breathing problems, anxiety, felt like I was going to pass out, etc.

Obviously I was symptomatic of more than just High Blood Pressure. I was also Insulin Resistant and suffered from both Heart Failure and Permanent Atrial Fibrillation. I subsequently have learned over the past 12 years that the lower [B]and healthier[/B] I got my average daily blood pressure the more my health improved; and I've experienced significant improvements to all of my health problems. At close to 70 I feel better than I have in many years. That said, I still suffer from significant disease, so all is not totally ducky! :round:

What does this have to do with wolverinete's blood pressure efforts?

Wolverinete, if your symptoms of disease or health problems are not significant, then you might be right about having more of a problem with OCD and anxiety than having any significant health problems.

Blood Pressure is like a body gauge, similar to the temperature gauge of a car. The higher the reading, the more significant are the health problems and problems with one's metabolism. High Blood Pressure signals, IMHO, an unbalanced metabolism caused by an unhealthy diet, lack of appropriate exercise and exposure to irritants and stimulants. These causes of High Blood Pressure also cause increased symptoms, depending upon the severity of the high blood pressure.

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of symptoms are you experiencing, and that you attribute to your blood pressure problems?
