I get terrible BP spikes (175/100) after weeks of normalcy (120/80). It doesn’t usually last long, sometimes only minutes, but it scares me and then, of course, my BP goes even higher. If I go to ER and it’s up like that it doesn’t usually phase them and within 10/15 minutes it gone down. Sometimes I get a headache and chest tightness with it.
I currently take Avapro, HCTZ, Atenolol and Aspirin. My Primary Care and Cardiololgist call it labile (?) and want to put me on CCB. I’ve heard horror stories about those and am terrified to take. I feel like a stroke is imminent and worry that the stroke won’t kill me, but instead leave unable to care for myself.
What can I do? Please help! 😢
