I was recently at my doctor's office for an infection and during my exam they (of course) took my BP. I was shocked at the numbers they came up with. They did mention that the Sudafed I was taking for my sinus infection could have raised my BP by quite a bit, but even so, I was very unhappy with my BP reading.
Of course, they instantly mentioned how overweight I am and that diet and especially exercise would be of great benefit in trying to get my BP down. Soooooooo, here I am. No one in my family has had high BP and I am hoping that my readings were just a combination of my med use, stress/illness, and/or a onetime event.
On the other hand, there is nothing like motivation when you are trying to get yourself on track with diet and exercise.
I am hoping that I can actually convince myself to check in here at least a couple times a week.
