ok since starting this journey ive developed high blood pressure well when i was on my cycle which ended a few days ago i noticed being outside made the dizziness worse i came in checked my BP and it was low so i freaked out and have been obsessively checking it. i called the dr office i go for a blood pressure check Monday i thought maybe my monitor wasn't working right but i went from 30 mg of my med to 20mg i had been on the 30 mg for almost a year i went to 20mg two days ago dr knows .anyways i bought a new monitor and im still having lower readings so here i am panicking thinking im gonna die and have a heart condition. is there anyone going through the change have had issues like this im really making myself sick scared to death. what i mean is has anyone developed high blood pressure for it to all of a sudden start lowering? i cant stop worrying i have something wrong with my heart im gonna call heart dr Monday for an appointment to have heart rechecked

    It could be the monitor.. I know you just bought one but.... I used to be obsessed with checking here at home or at a local grocery store. It would be high each time then I would go to the DR and it was fine.. This happened a few times which was worrisome for me. Then someone stated here that it could be hormones going up and down which explains alot.. . could be, don't know.. I'm sure you are good-- make sure you drink plenty of water, are eating well and get your rest. Yes, always a good idea to have it checked out for piece of mind.

    I've been on different BP medicines for years but I feel that I need to come off because my readings are a little low. 118/62. I started peri-menopause around 45 and I'm 52 with almost all menopausal sypmtoms.The Dr says thats a great BP reading but I don't think so. I'm going to be discussing her slowly taking me off. Menopause has caused so many concerns and changes. I know with prayer and vitamins AND THIS FORUM, lol we are going to be alright.
