Is there any reason why my blood pressure might have suddenly started to rise and stay high both morning and evening? I had hypertension diagnosed over 2 years ago and had the Losartan reduced from 50 mg to 25 mg [the lowest dose] over a year ago. At that time I was getting averages of around 122 systolic. It stayed more or less the same with the lower dose until about a month ago, when although the weekly averages stayed within bounds I was getting several quite high readings each week. Each day they seem to get higher and this morning it was 172/102. For me that is really high.
I haven't altered anything in my diet or life style and cannot understand this rise. Is it unusual as I haven't had these fluctuations before?
I have a 6 month check up next week and wonder if I will get the meds increased again.
