question about BP?

I just wanted to let you know my BP goes up and down everytime I go to the Dr and in pain or very nervous. Being in pain can elevate your BP and so can stress. I had a running joke with my GYN that he will always be able to tell how bad my pain is just by taking my BP. It has gone as high as 160/110 right before my hyst. I still have pain and when it gets bad my BP shoots up there. I would still recommend you check it on a regular basis since high BP runs in your family. I even had to go back everyday for a week to check mine it had gotten so high and it seemed that the less pain I was in the lower it went, but when my pain scale was 8 to 10 it shot up again. I know mine is from stress and pain and I also suffer from migraines and I can relate to you there. They are horrible..When I was pregnant mine went up to 170/120 and was isolated during labor. Now I have permenant red palms that get almost purple when mine goes up. Just keep an eye on it and see the difference when you are in pain and stressed and when you are not in pain or stressed, you might see the pattern I have. high BP is nothing to take lightly unless you are sure what is causing it, so make sure you monitor it regularly.. I hope you feel better soon.....

I'm sorry, but I have to strongly disagree here....high blood pressure is nothing to take lightly REGARDLESS what is causing it. Just because you know what is causing it doesn't mean you won't have a stroke, heart attack etc. Knowing the cause doesn't make it go away. I took a lax attitude about mine for years...even with a family history of hypertension, congestive heart disease and stroke. That was until I passed out in one of my college classes. Gidge, I urge you to keep your doctor posted on it and let her/him be the one to make the decision on wether it is of concern or not.

question about BP?

thanks so much for all your replies and input

I had a tiny bit of a headache each day on the weekend but not as bad as during the week, and I never had a chance to check my BP all weekend, I'm going to watch it this week and see what bladder is also giving me pure h--ll.......lots of "dribbling" and burning (the burning I can see being from the IC but not the dribbling) I can ask him about that too when I see him.

thanks again and I'll keep y'all posted! 's!!

question about BP?

I have high blood pressure, and my doctor has said any
consistent readings over 140/90 may need treatment.
With white coat syndrome, mine is higher at the doctors,
and especially at the hospital for surgery!! Trish has a thread
on the hormone jungle where she pulled all her research together
on blood pressure. Some sisters here find HRT increased it, and others found the patch lowered it. Again, everyone reacts differently to HRT.
