I come to you at the end of my rope, as no doctor seems to know what the problem is, as well as leaving me feeling misunderstood and not believed.
6 months ago I was a healthy 31 year old female, starting a new career, having the time of my life. I am overweight, always have been, so i was on monitor for diabetes, cholesterol, the works, and these results were always perfectly within normal ranges, in fact they still are!
However a couple months ago i started to get pain in my belly area, I went to the GP and he measured my pressure, it was 220/130, so very high... I was sent home with Lisinopril and that was that. I bought a home meter because it got me worried. I started measuring and slowly but steadily the BP went down, the GP added Amlodipine, but as a result I started getting palpitations, problems with my heart rate, it kept being far too high. Metoprolol retard was added and my BP was perfect for a good week. Now since 4 days I’m having a new problem. Until around 4 PM my BP is perfect, all well within normal ranges, then after 4 the Diastolic pressure goes up, and up and up.... It lies between 95 and 110, it gets even far higher when I stand up. All the while the systolic pressure stays pretty good, between 110 and 130, standing up as well.
I do not know what is going on anymore, I’ve had blood works done, this was all fine, I’ve ad an ECG this was also fine.
Whenever this diastolic pressure goes up, I feel such enormous pressure in my head, my lips tingle, my cheeks glow, it’s a horrible feeling, and I don't understand why....
?Does anyone recognize this at all?
