I thought I'd read someone on this board having problems with met jacking up their BP, but can't find it.
Last year at the dr's office my BP was bang on normal and she started me back on Met. Over the past year, it seems to have gone haywire, or at least it feels that way. I was sick one day and had a very stressful morning (flat tire, car switch, completely new set of tires, had already spent the morning vomiting, trying to get to the doctor to make sure it wasn't strep, etc) and I alarmed the woman who saw me. She wasn't my regular doc, but I think after all that crazy my BP was about 158 over something. I chalked it up to extreme stress, but she gave me a serious side-eye, though she let me go without scheduling a second appointment.
This year's appointment it was 140/90-somethin when I got into the exam room, but normal when I left, though I was given a chart and told to check it whenever I'm feeling calm and near one of those machines you find in a pharmacy. Which I did last night and it was high again.
The only thing that's changed since last year was the met. Has anybody else had that kind of experience with metformin or is my family history just catching up with me?
