Mine still comes up high sometimes. I think stress makes it go up. Did you have to change your diet besides taking medication?
I’m the opposite I have low BP. I stopped eating pork and beef.
For cholesterol too
My blood pressure is so low that if it was any lower it would be a medical condition and I’d be passing out all the time. My psychiatrist recommended that I eat a lot more salt to raise my blood pressure. However my diet is junk food all the time so I have a high concentration of fat in my blood. I hope it causes me to die of a heart attack when I’m still young. I want to die like my uncle did. Perfectly healthy then die of a heart attack suddenly before turning 60
I suffer with high blood pressure and take two different meds to help treat it.
I have a portable blood pressure monitor that I keep in the house.
Did the Dr. Try to tell you to cut salt out of your diet? Can I ask your age? I’m 42.
No he did not mention cutting salt or reducing it.
I’m 53 years old and suffered with high blood pressure for a while now.
Mine is extremely low, it causes me to faint and developed raynauds syndrome. Also have a fast heart rate, because of it.
I didn’t know that was a side effect! I’ve always had low blood pressure, and it’s compounded by a beta blocker I had to take for a heart defect & arrhythmia. But my pulse has always been high. I had no idea there was a connection.
Yea, tachycardia is usually accompanied with low blood pressure. I worry I could go into shock from it.
I hope you don’t! I guess it makes sense, if the blood isn’t carrying enough oxygen to your body that the heart would have to beat faster to increase the blood flow.
My pressure is low too, probably thats why quetiapine made me dizzy…
Some of my relatives have high blood pressure and they cut salt and coffee.
My BP was kind of high, but after drinking ionized water for 3 weeks it went down to normal. My heart rate is still pretty high though, like 90-100 BPM resting. I’m not healthy.
I have great blood pressure for my age but walk at least a half hour ( probably double that! ) every day. A half hour of walking at least three times a week will help a lot. You really should check with your regular doctor though. Some people are on the pills and the heart is treated a lot better these days!
My blood pressure tends to run high. I’m on 3 meds for hypertension, but I’ve found that exercise helps the most.
I was diagnosed with high blood pressure in 2009. I was uninsured at the time and seeing a nurse practitioner. I paid with cash. She put me on medication for the BP but didn’t suggest I change my diet.
I used to walk quite a bit living downtown, but I tripped on a piece of crumbling sidewalk and fell. That’s when I stopped walking.
I glad to hear nobody had to change their diet. My nurse who gives my injection wants me to see a doctor about my blood pressure. I’m scared to go.
