Well, yesterday was exciting. When I got up, my bp was about what it's typically been running, but when I checked mid morning it jumped to 174/98! I checked several times over the day waiting to hear back from my dr and had high readings throughout including 169/100. I'd not hit 100 diastolic before. So finally they call and say go in to hosp just to get checked out. Here's the wierd part.....They hook me up to the monitors and check my bp (laying down) with the automatic cuff and it comes back 131/65!! I've not had a bp like that in 2 months! Sitting up it was only 148/89 (My current typical "low"). Basically the whole 3 hours I was there, my bp did wierd things like registering super low like above, and the highest being something like 151/75. Really strange. But the encouraging thing is that all the tests came back fine. The nst was perfect, not even trace protein in my urine, and the blood tests showed no problems at all. So all that is encouraging to me and makes me feel much better, although I'm still unhappy about the bps. It's been better today, but read 149/100 just after lunch. I'm not happy seeing 100, but I guess with all other things testing fine, we're just going to cook along for a while and watch it all. Any thoughts? Why the high readings if everything else is perfect?
