I have hypertension. Currently taking Metoprolol 100mg. Doing great. Almost too great. But my bottom number would shoot back up to almost 110 during activity, like walking really fast or being constipated. Yes, I monitored my BP during that time because I would get a headache/dizzy.
While constipated, my BP went as high as was 130s/108. Maybe the 130 isn't so bad, but I know the 108 is. Afterwards, my BP went right back down.
I'm so scared. I know this puts me at a huge risk for something deadly. Does anybody know what to do with a bottom number so high? I wonder if an actual BP med would be more helpful? But I'm also on Metoprolol because my heart rate suddenly increase as well. Not dangerously, and my heart rate is normal.It would just beat really fast.
I'm seeing my doctor on the 9th. But has anybody dealt with just the bottom number spiking like this? It freaks me out, though I try to stay calm. I don't know why only the bottom number is like this. It used to be both, but now with the medication, only one spikes up badly. Maybe it means something?
I had an ultrasound of my kidneys and some blood work done. So hopefully, the doctor finds something. My BP used to be normal and then it screwed up, I think due to stress, lack of sleep, etc. I hope there's a reason for all this.
