strange BP question.. why would this happen?

Postby melissaa » Sat Oct 27, 2012 07:19 pm

My bp seems to be different from most... I can be up doing normal activity and while its elevated.. its really not bad (130's/70s) but the minute I sit down, I start feeling awful.. the longer I sit the worse it gets. I start swelling more and get tingly, hot, fatigued and short of breath and my bp goes up significantly (140's-160s/high 80s-90s and once over 100). I know most people get higher BP WITH activity but mine seems to be completely different. It IS lower when ive been asleep and take it before I get out of bed in the morning (120/70.. which is still higher than my normal but I never see this number during the day). Why would it do this? It just seems so odd to me.

It sounds like labile pressures to me. With me my pressures don't always follow a specific pattern, but are usually lower when lying. When the pressures go up, I feel 'bla', hot, flushed, sometimes short of breath.

How are you doing today? How are your blood pressures?
