    yes my blood pressure goes all over the place. i also take meds for it, sometimes its 140/85, other times when i take it its 95/74. taking it makes me nervous thou so that is probably why it goes up. also when i go to the drs it goes up. crazy....then when i get nervous i get palpitation, it just never seems to end.

      Since perimenopause my BP has been high and low. From 170/98 to 98/70, I have to monitor my BP two times a day. Most days its low 112/72 and I don't take meds on those days. As advised by my doctor as it drops too low. But some days I get headache and when I check its gone up. And it brings anxiety as its scary from one low reading to a high reading few hours later. I've seen many doctors regarding this and still no answers. I can't take my BP meds every day as if its low it makes me dizzy with the meds.

      Its so depressing as high BP is dangerous and I never know when it will spike.

      Yes it does bring on anxiety. Yesterday I had chest and arm pain. Doctors did an ECG. It was borderline. However she says it's nothing to worry about, she thinks it's the anxiety.
