      Same here....was always normal even being overweight. Now at peri it crept up. But after losing a few pounds n drinking beet juice shots periodically, eating better -less junk n salt, and walking a lot...its come down to near normal.

    nanette,

    I started having issues with my blood pressure being high since the last half of 2018. I'm now 52 and never, ever had blood pressure problems in my life. Mine was always very good... averaging somewhere about 110/70 . When my BP was taken early last December, it was 150/100! I was totally calm when they were taking it. They said it might must be from being in the doctors office, I said "no" I don't get nervous in the doctor's office." I do have a blood pressure cuff at home so that I could check on it daily. Sure enough, it was constantly elevated in the high blood pressure stage 1 to state 2 level. The doctor wanted to put me on blood pressure medication and I said "give me a few months to try to lower it with regular exercise" - I got back in the habit of walking about 3 to 4 times a week. Nothing strenuous - I started off at 15 min and have worked my way up to 25 min whenever I do walk. I keep a low to moderate pace. I've not been in shape for a while so you have to start EASY. Don't want to over do it. Well, after 3 months, my BP is averaging my usual 110/70 - I took it earlier at it was 108/69! Great numbers! Check with your doctor about getting on a regular walking schedule and make sure you are able to handle exercise. Hope that helps!

    I have been having what they call prehypertension. A doctor gave me some blood pressure medicine to take but I haven't yet. Once I start taking it though I am told I shouldn't ever stop. It hasn't been that bad lately, One time I went to the doctor when I was mad, mad, mad, at my husband and it was high. So I really believe it just depends on my mood. I need schedule an appointment with a heart specialist though. I believe I had a slight TIA last year even though the tests showed nothing and the emergency doctors tended to think it was due to the arthritis I have in my neck. But the left side of my body started tingling and my jaw was numb and still to this day feels funny. My throat even felt funny when it happened.

    The high blood pressure thing started about two years ago. I hate getting old. Lori
