Uncontrollable blood pressure

Thursday, July 19, 2018

I’m not overweight at all, maintaining for several years now. We exercise every day , eat a very clean mostly vegetarian diet. We’re busy with City Planning, I’m VP of the HOA board, very very happily why the heck is my blood pressure out of control? I monitor it at home and it ranges from 104/64-118/74, but when I’m laughing, active, or in the doctors office it skyrockets to 196/101. I’m on BP meds twice a day. I’m doing everything right.

    My BP tends to be low....never a problem except during my once per year physical! My doc takes it when I get there and it is high...she takes it again near the end of my appointment and it is always normal....

    If you only measure high in doc's office, it might be nerves and the tight arm strap they use to measure bp.
