Hello, I am 66 and up till now have never had health problems. During an operation (osteotomy) my blood pressure shot up - my GP says they cut an artery because of the state of my face but they deny that. That was end of May and my blood pressure which up till then had been 120/60 all my life is now around 150, sometimes higher. That coupled with hearing my heartbeat(!) at night keeps me awake. |Have never taken medication for anything as I cook every day and walk a lot with dogs, go on hikes and walking holidays. Have tried cutting out caffeine etc but 6 months on, am tired out. The GP wants to put me on medication (my heart is excellent as are all the blood tests), so it is a mystery but what can I do to get back to my normal range? I am 56 kg and completely well otherwise. Many thanks for any advice, gratefully received.
