I have always had “white coat syndrome “ rarely do I have a reading in a medical setting that is not out of range, they are always high. I take my BP at home, usually the readings are all within range so that was my saving grace that high BP was a result of nerves in a medical setting. But something has changed my BP has went up and my machines reflect that even at home. 13 years ago I had my aortic valve and part of the aortic artery replaced. The surgery was a success, I’ve stadotoof checkups and taken my meds (including BP meds). I’m concerned about the elevated readings even at home. I just finished a echocardiogram, the dr said every thing was normal. But he expressed concern over the elevated BP and increased one of the meds. The only time I get a good reading is right after 30-40 minute cardio exercise. I wait 30 minutes and usually the reading is well within range, but as the day goes on it creeps up to the mid 140s and low 150s Has anyone else on this forum had any experiences as I have described? Besides the two meds and regular excercise I have started a deep breathing regiment coupled with meds. I would welcome anyone’s advice if they have experienced what I have described. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
