My blood pressure readings follow a regular sequence, as a result of which I’m unsure whether I have a serious problem or not, particularly with the systolic measurements. I take a series of readings each evening at 5 minute intervals. The first is typically very high such as 180/85; the second is typically 160/75; the third 140/70; if I take a fourth reading it’s commonly much the same as the third, occasionally lower.
This sequence is repeated on a daily basis. I’m wondering how one should interpret such readings. Does one take the highest and fear for the future, take the lowest and not worry overmuch, or take the average and think it’s a matter of concern.
I’m on a cocktail of lisinopril, lercanipidine, and bendromethiazide. Would appreciate your views.
