    I have hypertension. Currently taking Metoprolol 100mg. Doing great. Almost too great. But my bottom number would shoot back up to almost 110 during activity, like walking really fast or being constipated. Yes, I monitored my BP during that time because I would get a headache/dizzy.

  • salty foods and BP spike

    Those of you who are salt sensitive, can you describe the BP spike you have after eating salty foods? For example does a spike happen after just one salty meal or does it require several meals over a few days? How long after eating salty foods does the spike occur?

    Has anybody read about or experienced any food item that causes BP to spike higher within 24 hours? ​I ask because I seem to have one myself, and it's - cheese!  Now, I know cheese generally has a lot of fat and a lot of salt so I'd expect it might have some long-term effects if you eat...

  • Blood pressure fluctuation during the day

    my BP remains in the normal range during the day, however, it appears to go over 120/80 in the evenings. I gather that this is a limit for a diabetics. During the day it hardly ever goes above 120/80. Typical reading would be 109/77, but typical reading at bed time is 129/85. Is anyone here experiencing...

    Hi, I just went to a pharmacy and they had one of those machines that test your blood pressure by pumping a hole where you put your arm through. I forget exactly what I got, but I got close to hypertension. The thing is I am only 20 and I don't think that is normal for my age. If it is worth mentioning...

  • Are BP readings reliable?

    I think it's great having a BP measuring machine at home, they come in a bunch of models, and I guess you could even go bulb and stethoscope "sphygmomanometer" if you're stuck in 1967.  But no reading method is very exact, and I wonder at the very concept of pressure-constricting...
