I tapered from 10mg Methimazole down to 2.5mg and my levels were beginning to stabilize. Long story short, I went off Methimazole for 6 weeks - got dizzy - Endo put me back on.
Mid Oct. I had annual physical. BP was 120/70 - my norm on BP meds. However, I was off Methimazole. A week later, Endo had me back on Methimazole 2.5mg
Got sinus infection last Monday - so bad teeth pained and eyelid blew up and formed a stye. BP was 180/80 when nurse took it. DR took it 10 mins later and it dropped to 160/80. I'm already on Verapemil for BP and migraines and BP has been under control for years.
I read a sinus infection can raise BP due to narrowing vessels. Not sure if it's true. I also read Methimazole has caused high BP in some patients. My BP wasn't really monitored the months I was on Methimazole so I'm not sure if it was up or not.
I'm on Augmenten but my BP was up before starting. I still feel sick as heck. Totally congested and sinus pressure.
Any idea what could be causing high BP suddenly? Anyone experience this when on Methimazole or with illness?
