Hi, i am 20 years old and I have been on hrt currently for just over 4 years, I developed hypertension in that time and been on beta blockers for the last 3 years, my blood pressure usually ranges between 160/90 and 140/90 depending but I went to the doctors recently and it was found it was 116/72 which is the lowest I have ever had my blood pressure, what has made my blood pressure lower as I feel like I haven’t changed anything dramatically?

meganlouise97...Blood pressure fluctuates from minute to minute, i.e. you can have a reading of say 125/75, then 140/80 the next.
Is your bp monitor accurate? This is important because if you are getting inaccurate readings, then whatever you report to the Dr. won't help any. I do find that at the Dr. office, we are usually given just one reading...which is a bare indication of whats' going on. You're just 20yrs of age...& I wonder 'why' you're having bp issues...or are you.
Hello MeganLouise, I have just been reading your other posts & you are, a complex case, aren't you? Have you seen a Cardiologist? HRT tends to increase blood pressure.
I have very erratic blood pressure & they tested my aldosterone, renin and cortisol. The Cardiologist did an ECG & an Echo too, have you had any of these tests?
What is the Gynaecologist doing about your Ovarian Cyst? Do you ever see your Consultants together? Are you in the UK?
