Brief Answer: Please follow the answer below... Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your concern carefully, and if I were your caring doctor, I would like to have more of your clinical details as following: - have you had common cold or flu recently? - what about your blood glucose levels + HbA1C - were the results normal when you checked them? If the above data are negative and the tests were normal, then, persistent high blood pressure is causing such problems. If I were your caring doctor, would change your current therapy (drugs class and doses). As you had stent in 2005, it is compulsory to keep blood pressure at least under 140/90 mm Hg. - Next, orthostatic blood pressure is also to be excluded. Please contact your doctor immediately to evaluate further your situation and to make the most suitable changes. For the time being, I would suggest to avoid overload in work, excess stress, drink more water and eat healthy, avoid salt in your menu. Hope it helped! Dr.Benard p.d. if you have more concern, please write back to me!
