Bp panic

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am a 29 year old female who suffered with hbp after t birth of both her children. It was controlled by meds and now I am totally off the meds and have been for over 18 months. But I still panic about my bp!! I take reading at home and get such a range of readings. Late afternoon/evening the readings are higher and the morning is a little lower. I always get a higher reading the first time I take it and then I sit and take it 6 r 7 times with a minute or so break between and it comes wn each time mostly. My pulse stays around 75-80 with each reading. These are the results from this morning and last night....read upwards as I took them off the machine memory. What should I do!!!!

I'm so worried about something awful happening to me or something going undetected. I hate going to the doctors but at the same time hate to think there is something wrong with me. I do suffer with health anxiety I think too!!

    I would NOT worry about your BP one bit, it's absolutely fine, sometimes its past perfect LOL your BP can rise when your pregnant, especially if your weight goes up with big baby or just food LOL please don't worry, take it once a week if at all, your worrying for nothing, and if you do take it sit on a dinning chair, feet flat and wait 5/10 mins relaxing.

    Wait about 2/3 minutes between taking

    But its a good BP I promise

    First of all congratulations on getting off meds . I believe that s is the best for anyone. But your numbers for your no are great. I wish I could be that way . I am trying to loose weight and it has helped but still take meds. I dropped one . You are just dealing with anxiety about your health . It is hard to cope with but your doing great .

    I agree with the previous responses.  What I have been told and I will pass along to you <139/89 is normal, so 138/88 or lower is considered normal.
